I believe these changes are required for next season. We must have a plan B, we cant just rely on hoofing it up to Murphy. Lets face it the guy has had incredible season scoring 27 goals that will not be repeated again. We need width and pace in the side that means having 2 full backs or wing-backs. It must not happen that we have Chambers playing at right back and Anderson in front, we are so limited down that side of pitch and offer no attacking threat down that side. It has to be Berra and either of Smith and Chambers, which unfortunately means one of them warming bench. We then need to look seriously at our midfield, we desperately need pace to get us up the pitch quicker, Looking forward to seeing the Irish lad Connolly given a chance, no more Tabb or Hunt at left mid please. I think Bru and Bishop are both very good technically but no good if ball is over their head all game. Up front think we have ideal 3 with Murphy and Sears with Dids just behind. I would release Tabb, S Hunt, Chaplow, Kenny.
He single handily got us a point today, he literally was the defence, he covered Smith and Chambers time and time again. That performance today from a side in top six of 2nd tier of English football wS embarrassing. Yes we may be in great league position but come on who can be proud of playing this way? It's so poor to watch when one of our players literally kicks the ball absolutely anywhere just to get rid of it
The more I think Mick got it wrong with subs. Yes get the fact Williams and Dids have not played for a while, but tell me this if we were loosing he would have bought at least one if not both of them on. Our biggest problem is retention of the ball. It is not physically possible to run around like a dog for 90+ minutes and that was shown yesterday with Sears, Berra, Smith all dead on their feet. If you bring on a Williams or a Mcgoldrick players that demand and retain the ball then you can take a little bit of pressure off. Why would they be on bench in 1st place if not going to play?
I am running the London Marathon in 4 weeks time, I am raising money for Ormiston Families. ITFC have kindly donated me a pair of tickets for the home match against the leagues whipping boys Blackpool on Saturday April 11th 3;00pm KO.
I would like to give people on here 1st chance to start bidding for the tickets with all the funds going to my chosen charity Ormiston Families. You can view my Just giving page on the link below. If you can message me your bid the highest will win the tickets.
With the players we have would be perfect. We can then play the 3 favourites Smith, Chambers and Berra in their proper position. We can then use Parr and Mings to bomb up and down providing us genuine width, which with no wingers we dont have. We can then have Skuse/Tabb. Bishop/Bru as the two in midfield. Then we have Sears who can play in hole behind Murphy and Wood. Really cant see why we cant pick this team with this formation.
I can't understand the critism he is getting have heard all sorts of rubbish, saying his not the same player he was, he can't be bothered, he is lazy etc. what the bloke supposed to do with ball around his ear all game? Play 3-5-2 with him I behind Murphy and Sears and pass the ball to his feet.
He really is the most important player with the style we play, we have no plan B. Chris Wood on loan would have been ideal. As exciting as Sears and Mcgoldrick partnership may sound, it wont be productive with no plan B.
I know I did with 9 points out of 9! Please could you all take a few minutes to read my post any donations will be greatly relcieved, come 26th April when running the London marathon for a great charity I will have the thought that we are already promoted as an extra push to get me round.
On Sunday 26th April 2015 I will be running the London Marathon for Ormiston Families.
Ormiston is one of the largest charities supporting children, young people and their families in the East of England. They help and support children and young people who are experiencing prejudice and discrimination, those at risk of or experiencing physical harm, emotional or mental health problems, those who are displaying challenging or harmful behaviours, those who are the main carer for a parent or sibling and those who are affected by the imprisonment of a close family member.
Although you may not think these problems affect you, how do you know your friends, colleagues and neighbours are not?
Any amount you can give would be greatly appreciated, so please dig deep and look out for me straining every muscle over the 26.2 miles on Sunday 26th April. The training has began in earnest every early morning and late night run I will be kept going by the thought of raising money for such a great cause.
