So paul describes he wants a physical striker I presume so he can serve up his hurstball but we played so well on Tuesday apparantley and maybe because we couldn't lump it forward.

i know we are light up front but why is he obsessed with having to have a big striker , it just tempts the longball and we seem to play so much better when we don't have that option.


You could work for the daily mail or the sun.

Hurst is saying that we need a striker in with a bit of presence about him. At Halifax we played some awesome stuff. Especially first half. Best I have seen in a while, but lacked a little up top as Hannahs link play and aerial ability wasn't good enough. If we want to play 433/451 then we need another option than Hannah so getting someone in who offers something different to him makes sense doesn't it?

What is the problem with this?

That's fair enough. The only problem I can see is that the big lumps that appeal to PH for size, strength and work rate are incapable of hitting a barn door with a shot and if they do happen to have a fair goal record they seem to leave it behind at their previous club.

Why this has been red crossed is beyond me? Another excuse for the defenders to lump it to Lennie/whoever and bypass the midfield.


Maybe it was for the spelling

The people who criticize the ( obvious ) suggestion that teams need a physical presence up front will also be the first to criticize when we get don't have a big physical presence up front if we don't win.

Let's all get a fantasy conference team together based on the principle that majority vote wins so that all posters get to choose the players. A shadow town team chosen by a show of hands and then see if that performs better than the one that PH, in charge, picks.

I doubt it and there'll be sandwich trays flying early on

Big physical doesn't necessarily mean hoof, but I hope whoever ends up signing isn't another Damian Spencer or Michael Rankine.

Posters on here that I have a lot of time for in their reports back from Halifax talked about the lack of presence that Hannah had on his own up front. It seems eminently sensible to get someone in who can use his upper body strength to hold on to the ball and provide the service Hannah needs....


I have an inferiority complex-It's not a very good one though.
