oh god; it is amazing Crooks can have a whole season of appalling games and never gets dropped, but shuey puts in some ordinary games after return from injury, and he is on the bench. Helpppppppppppppppp.
Swapping an attacking midfielder for a defensive mid might be a good move when we are playing Doncaster, they are on a run at moment and they wont want to stop that run now! 2 defensive midfielders in the shape of Crookes and Kearney may just stop Doncs run!
we need more players supporting the backline. In the last 4 league games we have had 6 goals against us! include the west brom game and thats 10!! an average of 2 per game!
The main concern for tomorrows game is our defence, our defence needs to improve of recent and if it doesnt improve tomorrow, they will score more than once.
Could prove a good change i think.
Another concern is Windass, if he gets a yellow card he will be banned for the TBs game! So he needs to keep his gob shut and play football.
The reason MBW and Schumacher works so well is becasue Schumacher can then sit back (which he does better than attacking) and MBW can go forwards.
The reason we struggle when MBW is out is because we then rely on Schuey to go forwards and Crooks to sit back, Crooks does his job ok but Schuey isn't attacking enough to fill in for the influential MBW, Schuey can't shoot for toffee which is IMO why we're struggling so much, we don't have enough going forward.
i dont like to be over negative, but last time we played without Schuey or BmW away from home - was at Blackpool when Schuey got injured!!
And how many shots on goal did we have that day??
Who is expected to move the ball forwards?
Thing is this only becomes an issue IF we were to lose....
To play two defensive midfielders against an inform side whilst using the width we have is in no way a bad tactic..
Prior to today
Todd we want you to change your tactics as its not working
After todays news.
WTF is he doing aghhhhhhhh
You lot make me laugh you really do...Whats even funnier is that knowing you lot, even if we win 0-4 and TK + Crooks have a blinder you would still have a go and say Schuey should be reinstated.... pmsfl...
Unbeaten in 5 ... On current form i see a figure of around 74 points, roughly that is... Thats with the team not even playing at full throttle yet..
By the end of Dec 6th we will know whether the lads will be sniffing at the play offs or automatic promotion, or indeed mid table or below mediocrity...
Anything other than a win at the weekend will obviously be down to Shuey not playing although recent results prove otherwise, but hey dont let that get in the way of a good moan....
