Turks shat themselves. It was like watching us play a big team

Interesting to see the fruits of the Welsh rebuild after not getting to the 2018 World Cup. Although their talismen remain the same, they have evolved from a lot of players who were in France, and in a number of cases very prominent players (Williams, Taylor, King, Robson Kanu, Vokes Chester etc) are not there anymore.

We often talk about rebuilding, and I think we could do worse than looking at the Welsh way.

That being said, even though Moore has had an excellent chance they are certainly not on top at the moment.

Wales really beginning to look like us in the last days of MON and the MM era. Defensively sound, but blunt in midfield with a lone striker holding a thankless role. Hardly heard Bale, Allen and Ramsey's names in the first half. Cant help but feel this has more to do with Page's system.

Switzerland able to keep the game, Wales trying to spring a counter attack anytime they manage to get it. Making for a tedious game, maybe like when other countries watch us play.
I imagine it'll be the same way when Scotland play "technically better teams".
Wales have decent players, especially in mid-field, so why can't they hold the ball better? How does this magic "technically better" stuff work exactly? If Wales decided not to go long every time would they be able to hold it and make Switzerland work harder?

Welsh have to be happy with that. If Swiss had a decent cf they'd have won that easily

Wales extremely lucky to hang on for a point there. They looked absolutely physically beaten out there at the end, like a team in terminal decline. Despite how much they hype themselves and are seen as some kind of template to follow in terms of youth development they don't actually seem to have that much talent coming through. Loads of young players thrown in alright but questionable how good they actually are.

It's likely that, thanks to us in 2017, their golden generation of Bale, Ramsay etc. will finish their careers without ever playing at a World Cup, just as the likes of Giggs, Rush and Saunders did before them. It's been a long time since 1958 for them.

The second half was watchable for a neutral. Wales had to go for a goal and they began looking for the ball.
When you stand off and play defensive / counter attack (coz I don't think they had to, I think they could have gone toe to toe with the Swiss) you're shortchanging yourselves. Good to see Bale Ramsay Allen James click into gear. They were out on their feet by the end.

I didn't see the match, but not a great result for either team. From what I've heard, Swiss will be very disappointed. It could cost them getting out of the group.

I've never seen a player as poorly tracked or marked as Ramsey in this first half. No-one near him.

Absolutely shocking stuff from Turkey. 

Wales certainly deserve it.

Was that the 3rd time Bale played that pass to Ramsey, Turks are very poor.

I think Turkey are doing a Colombia style 94 World Cup implosion.
