Bajevic tactics?

It seems like AEK manager Bajevic has placed the Greek Cup at the top of the list of priorities for the season.His tactics for the game against Panthrakikos(1-1)were somewhat strange.AEK started the match playing a 4-3-3,and with a midfield without Kafes and Nsaliwa this just did not work.We were constantly giving away too much room in midfield which allowed the home team to dictate and coupled with our horrific defending in that 1st half,it was no surprise to see us go behind to the most ridiculous goal AEK has EVER conceded.The strange things started in the 2nd half when seeing that a 4-3-3 with these players was not working in the 1st half ,Bajevic persisted.So in the 60th min Blanco makes it 1-1,Bajevic’s response,to sub him???????We then change systems to a 4-4-2 with Djebbour and Ediniho up front.On 70 min Djebbour is replaced,once again changing the system to a 4-2-3-1.I just can’t fathom why if we were chasing 3 points,Bajevic would reduce the strike force by 1 with every system change.The only explanation i can offer is that as we’re defending a 2 goal lead into the 2nd leg of the CUP semi-final in midweek,Bajevic will demand that his players defend high up the pitch,meaning Blanco and Djebbour will have to work hard stopping Panseraikos starting any attacks from the back.On a positive note I am stating here and now that the ‘kid’ Tachtzidis,wll become the midfield general and an AEK legend for years to come(until the big money arrives for him and it will).This is a very special talent,his 1st touch and vision is that of a much older player and his left foot is as sweet as the great Vassilis Tsartas.
