Remember when I said that TC keeps things close to the vest, so when he says he’s not changing anything, it usually means something is changing?

Turns out Christiansen does understand how to make changes. The team went out and drubbed Bristol City on Saturday, but didn’t try and work it out wide to the fullbacks and lose possession, as they had done in the three previous matches.

A lot of fans were concerned that Christiansen was too new to England and to the Championship to adapt to the league. However, Saturday’s win at Bristol City would seem to be a result of some changes that Christiansen put it. Anyways, it’s good to see that the boss can mix things up to catch the other teams off-guard. Let’s hope that continues.
