Why is he concentrating on the top end of the pitch. It doesn't matter how many we score this defence always concedes more......

Nice too see players in early in Jan tho

We are down but be nice to go down with a bit of fight and hope for next season

He might be thinking the defence may look marginally better if the ball doesn't come straight back every time it's cleared.

Worrying other teams offensively and the ball sticking a bit further up the pitch might do wonders for our defence.

Not saying I wouldn't like to see someone come in at the back mind.

No idea when I began here, was a very long time ago. Previously known as Spirit_of_81. Love cheese, hate the colour of it, this is why it requires some blue in it.

Statistics indicate that if we score 4 we will win every game,

Because defending is not isolated to the defensive third. As it stands we have very little ability to hold up the ball and we are often giving away possession in advanced areas of the pitch, allowing for devastating breaks (hence why so many free kicks are being given.) Having a player who is 6 3 in both boxes is surely a big scalp for us too, as we do miss having the ability to put away a cheeky header from a corner now, especially with Tommy gone.


In short Lambert spoke early about a squad being unbalanced, and his recruiting would be focussing on trying to balance a squad. When you have an unbalanced squad, mistakes made anywhere on the pitch can and often do lead to goals conceded.

Each signing is going to have its own time table. Just because the first two to sign were forwards doesn't mean he isn't working on the back line.

1/3 of the players we have signed so far are defenders.

He's not ignoring it, and we don't know what's in the pipeline.

Have you never heard that attack is the best form of defence.

Having more threat should help as the back a bit, less pressure.

I think having a few more big men on the pitch will help us defend set-pieces an awful lot. Also if Adeyemi came back that would help a lot as well.

We were conceding a lot from set pieces, so some extra height may help there and let's be honest our current attack couldn't score on a weekend in Weston super mare laden with bundles of fifties.

Because SBR and Sir Alex always said you defend from the front

He did say something along those lines a couple of weeks ago, about the defence being under more pressure because the ball doesn't stick at the other end. Think he does have a point, our defence has had to do a lot of defending despite us usually having had a lot of possession in most recent games. Hopefully the new additions will make a difference.

I beg to differ. If we had defenders who are comfortable with the ball, and not just hoooooofing it we don’t have so much need of abattering ram. Big strikers who can actually hold a ball up are few and far between at this level.
