Ian RoyalTop Flight From a defensive point of view, what is wrong with having 2 banks of four? Let the opponent try and penetrate through 2 banks of four. If only everyone would do their jobs properly we wouldn't be so lightweight.
1) We don't have one decent striker, let alone two.
2) We're getting overrun in midfield with three central midfielders, let alone two.
3) You don't abandon your ethos and plan because of two matches and a handful of internet bedwetters.
Classy as ever Ian. You're even stealing my material.
We don't have a defensive midfielder to shield the back four ie someone to break up attacks and get the ball out to the wings.
We haven't had one since Leigterwood, and guess what we've been piss weak in midfield since.
Personally I'd have two defensive midfielders away and counter attack down the wings.
