McCann should have abandoned this wing back fiasco when he failed to sign any wing backs....Instead he's ploughed ahead with it and tried to turn full backs and midfielders into that role...it's not going to work Grant.

I'd rather we went back to the diamond.
Wow using wing backs must be bad to want the diamond back, which guarantees limited chances on goal! Of course wing backs works fine.... but we don't have the players to play that way. Who would ever think that would be a good idea? Good players can be trained to play in different positions. That said expecting an 18 year old with not much experience to adapt is a bit much - back to my thread with the problem with leo

I think a trick has been missed with not getting an experienced manager
ffs hang slack for a few more matches before you write the lad off :roll:

The players who hitherto had not let him down did exactly that twice in a week, yes he made mistakes but guess what experienced managers did that. I give you Westley for a recent example.
If we don't beat Gills then questions can be seriously asked but even then to sack a manager when in the top 6 would seem harsh.

Going.
Win 3-0
MM to turn up. JM to carry on scoring. RM to turn up and show what he can do.
Ricky needs to turn up and show us fast doesn't he :wink: Given that JM is scoring less freely and he's now first choice.... Like I said elsewhere I hope I'm wrong but you can see his confidence suffering if he struggles adapting. That won't help us but more importantly him

Bond; Shephard Hughes Taff Taylor; Grant Doughty Lloyd Gwion; Maddison Marriott.

Guess we'll somehow have to find spots for Gormley and LDSL though ffs.

I note with interest your inclusion of Gwion, is he definitely back, I see no evidence on the offal site, he's certainly been a big miss. On a similar note is Chettle almost back to full fitness. Our midfield two have been worrying me of late with their lack of pace.

Spoke to him in the Exec.Lounge Nick at the Cobblers game and he assured us he would be fit and IS back into full time training.

Means he can play Gwion at wing-back again. Cconsequently, GTTM gets his usual spot out of position on the other side, bringing nothing to the table. Also puts Shephard on the bench, which would be a joke.

Hey, it worked great in early season but, let's be honest, we were winning despite the system rather than because of it, and we were pretty lucky more than once.

GM said Gwion could have been rushed back this weekend if it was a play-off final or some such, so he ought to be fine for this.

It's only Gillingham and we might get away with three at the back and having LDSL oop, but it wouuld be a false dawn and we'll get smacked away at Southend if he goes with the same thing.

Would be comedy if Fatty Evans has a late change of heart. He could come and have a look at what he'll be inheriting in the new year then.

Pressure on McCann next week....

If he can't pick a side to beat this lot, questions will be asked.

They are hopeless.

No. It's another tough game.

We need to focus on ourselves. If we do that we should be ok. We know what we're capable of on our day.
