Every player has a weakness that needs to be worked on to improve. MT has already said it is the kicking. He will become better with age, experience and practise. He is a goalkeeper after all. A lot if work has been done already on hands and positioning which us a major plus.
Phew! That ugly game where we took a lot of aerial bombardment probably taught the team more than a comfortable 3-0 win. Clean sheet. Got to be happy with that. Andresson looks a lot more comfortable in goal.
I'm wondering whether he is getting in position early to then invite contact when a defender comes over him? He always seemed to get penalised if he goes up for a 50/50. He always certainly used to know how to jump so whether he is told this as tactical? Maybe a direct question to the man...
Ward has never been the same since his injury and Maxted only good on his goal line. We looked a better team with Andresson in goal so an upgrade there (imo).
We desperately need a RCB. It is common knowledge that the defence needs a boost so MT has found a decent RCB (albeit when he is fit)...
Bowman works hard, it is plain to see but I'm with PC on this. He brings people in to games and allows others to get in on goal (MJ, JR) ect. However, imo he misses too many for a striker. We may as well stick a lump of a centre back up there to occupy their defenders
He has 10 goals which...
Difficult to predict adding new signings to the lineup without a crystal ball 🤔
Maybe a lineup of this then
Key New signing Parkes Page
New Signing Taylor Collins New signing
New signing New signing
Correct me if I'm wrong but I actually thought Sweeney was originally a CB when we signed him but we converted him to a RB so I see him being equally comfortable squad player to cover both positions but not necessarily a starter when Stubbs gets fit.
Don't know about anyone else but I'm hopeful in what MT brings in. Hopefully just enough to turn this team in to a very decent league 2 unit to kick off the second half of the season. We always have a dip and have struggled with genuine wide players in Randall and Williams being injured on top...
