Blackman has dyed his hair green. Someone needs to have a quiet word.

Bloody too right, strong words needed tomorrow.

Having watched Brown, Nombe and Stanno in the last two games, I’d suggest that dream team as a descriptor is more than a bit OTT. Suspect that Smith and a bit of good old fashioned hoof might yield a better result
That’s only because we played the wrong formation
Nombe and Stanno up front there pace will frighten defenders to death
Stanno needs a physical presence up with him
Brown behind to play those clever through balls which he can exceeding well
Smith later in the game

A tongue in cheek post I know but it highlights for me the unbeleivably naieve misconception that the more strikers on the pitch the more chance we have of scoring. When chasing a game we will often see MT bringing on every striker we have, a trait he seemed to learn from Tisdale, it seldom works. Fact is it's often just a change in supply into the box that is needed or just a change in formation. You've as much chance of getting a goal by changing defensive midfielders as you have of bringing on a striker for a centre half. Indeed flooding the pitch with forwards probably lost us that Shrewsbury game.
Yes but the old saying
Attack is better than defence
Think this is the only way it will on Saturday

It’d be nice to smash this lot on tele to up our confidence , which to say the least is faltering a tad at the moment. The vagaries of football , a few weeks back we were priding ourselves on our cast iron defence and bemoaning our toothless attack , heavily reliant on Nombe.Now we’re having to shuffle the defence around according to who’s fit.
Seems like a draw but I’d settle for the odd goal win with a deflection off the corner flag from a long goal kick , anything to get us winning again.If we can’t get our defence together a long hard season scraping the lower reaches of the league will be on the cards.
