Comments from last weekend were that we were less than convincing after LJL's red card with Pittman and Hannah up front. Obviously, we were down to ten men which would have had an impact, but I think we could do with a bit more attacking intent than playing 3 central midfielders. That's why I'd personally put Arnold on the left (if he is fit enough) in place of McLaughlin and stick Neilson on the right.

The alternative is that we try 4-3-3 or 4-3-1-2 with Neilson playing either as one of the front 3 or in 'the hole' behind the front two. Would Clay/Brown/McLaughlin have the legs to play as a central 3, I wonder?

Ah, right. I obviously didn't read the match reports properly because I actually went to the Newcastle game on the Saturday afternoon then straight out at night in Clee when I got home. It's not easy to read forums on your phone when driving down the A1, even as a passenger.

Quoted from Maringer
Comments from last weekend were that we were less than convincing after LJL's red card with Pittman and Hannah up front. Obviously, we were down to ten men which would have had an impact, but I think we could do with a bit more attacking intent than playing 3 central midfielders.

I'm sure they would and have demonstrated so far this season that they can cover a lot of ground effectively. They are all very mobile players and Brown especially has shown a lot energy in his contribution thus far. I like this combination in mid-field and think they will serve us well. It's nice to see Paddy play in his more " natural role" and his performances have proved what an asset he is when used properly.

On another note it's nice to see the supposed myth, that Hurst is a hoof ball merchant, put to rest. In the GET he clearly states that he has never advocated playing the long ball and has never set the team up to do so. I think in the past the team has resorted to this when either under pressure or haven't had the confidence in themselves to try something different.
