Take some responsibility for what's going on and stop blaming a lack of funds.

If your staff are rubbish, train them, give them a simple list of priorities and reward good work. Treat them as people not just footballers.

Take it by the scruff of the neck, work towards improving it, earn your salary.

Look at the positives from what's worked so far, like the 532 formation last season for those 2 months when we played Villa, get back to that and with your best set of staff you've ever had, you can surely turn some of those draws into wins.

If not, I'm afraid your contract will not be renewed. This is your final warning.
1-0 Celina

That's my prediction based on that half.

To be fair to Mick, Spence, Webster and Knudsen have all flowered into really good signings and all the summer signings that are playing (Adeyemi, Garner and Waghorn) look even better.

I'd bring Celina on for Nydam at some point, and probably Iorfa on for Spence now purely because of the yellow card.

Nydam's been really good also btw.

Nice to hear!
Didn't we have a promising rightback that Mick liked a few years ago
at 17:53 21 Sep 2017

But he got a few injuries and was released.

I also seem to remember him scoring a hattrick at the club we released him to but haven't heard of him since.

Anyone remember his name?

I find it odd that we're playing 442 based on our performances in the 532 last season. The performances when we played at least one fullback (preferably 2) either side of the central defender we're decent and just needed the goal to turn the draw into a win. The times we played Smith, Berra and Chambers together didn't work however, and it seems we've imo thrown the baby out with the bathwater.

All the draws obtained in that run could have been turned into wins had we had more of a goal threat, which I believe we will have with Garner and McGoldrick up top.

Our squad imo is almost completely suited to this formation. Spence and Knudsen both looked much better in the back 3 (in fact, the game they played alongside Chambers - Villa away was it? - must have been one of our best performances without Berra playing... much better than last week anyway...). This signing from Wolves looks suited to it as does Kenlock, who still looks to me a little naive to play in a back 4. All of our central midfielders are better in a 3, including Huws and Ward. I know nothing of Adeyemi other than he looks a good signing on paper (as do all our summer signings to be fair). We need to play a front 2 or we're back to 0 shots on target land, Garner and McGoldrick need games together to click.

I haven't had my finger on the pulse but I gather Mick's said we'll be playing 442 with all that said. If so, please Mick have the balls you had 3 seasons ago and play:

Whatever back 4 you like brother
Rowe, Dozzell, Skuse, Cellina
McGoldrick, Garner

If Cellina doesn't make it, don't stick Sears or Dozzell out there (it isn't their natural position), put Rowe out there or Harry f*cking Bunn
Has Mick gained a bit of a belly?

Or does he sit on the edge of his seat?
