October
at 10:07 1 Oct 2021

6 games this month, so a hectic programme awaits, possibly coinciding with a Town team hitting form for the first time this season.
The problem areas we have had ( goalkeeper, defence, central midfield) , seem to have resolved themselves , or were just waiting for the required amount of gel.
Hladky in goal is looking more the confident shot stopper we hoped we were getting when we signed him.
In defence , the pairing of Burgess and Edmundson is getting valuable game time, and will have a whole lot more this month, although we now have the capable back up of Wolfenden and Nsiala.
The player of the month award goes to Donacien imo. Hasn't really put a foot wrong, and against Lincoln he really did lead us through the game.
On the other side , Penney has proved a very capable replacement for Coulson.
We all know the first pairing of Evans and Morsy was a resounding success on Tuesday. While I can't expect such performances against better opposition, it certainly bodes well for an area we have struggled in for a long, long time.
Up front we now have options galore, with Edwards trying to force his way into a strike force firing on all cylinders at the moment.
All in all , Town fans really must be looking forward to October with more anticipation than has been seen in many a year.
By the end of it , I think we may be nibbling away at the fringes of the top 6. Let's hope so.

4231 is clearly a system that works
at 07:33 17 Sep 2021

Too many teams , in higher places, play it regularly, so the next thing to look at is , how does it work ?
Because that must be a question most, if not all itfc supporters must be asking themselves regularly this season.
Without mentioning specific teams and systems, 4231 relies heavily on getting the ball from defence to attack very quickly, ( witness a few of the goals we have scored this season)
The remit of this system does not include leaving gaping holes down either flank for the opposition to expose as soon as the ball is lost.
To a large extent , this is resolved by a high press from the "3" or 2 of those 3 dropping into midfield to make a 442.
I have seen little of either under Paul Cook's supervision.
We have conceded by leaving enormous gaps around the flanks , and over-lapping wing backs scampering back into a stretched defence, who have been receiving little or no cover from the "2" in front of them.
In short , suicidal, no matter how many opportunities you create. When the opposition, starts to press, ( ie. After we score a goal) , we carry on as if its still 0-0, no extra cover to protect a lead, no tactics to revert to.
What is the need to have over- lapping wing backs when you are already leading. They need to be full backs. The midfield should be now be a 4 and the no. 10 utilised to link play. Not remain anonymous for the entire 90 minutes.
So, I hope that has gone some way to explaining how it can work.
But I won't guarantee we will be seeing anything like it tomorrow.

And now all the players are safely gathered in, shall we start harvesting some points ?
I think the answer to that question is if we can retain pocession and control games for longer periods , then the wins will be achieved.
Morsy will almost certainly now become the main director of operations on the field, albeit , not for another 3 games. Meantime we most probably will be welcoming Edmundson into the fold, along with a very impressive debut from Coulson and Burgess being one of the first ones to settle into itfc life. The signs are good that, an injury free run should produce some long awaited clean sheets.
The addition of Celina to an already potent attacking threat , will , I feel, ensure the goals for column keeps ticking over. Particularly if Bonne can use the 2 week break to recover from, what is said to be a minor knock.
All in all, I predict we shall enter October in much better spirits, if still some way of the pace in the division one table.
