Therefore as we never set out to beat world beaters we will set out to stop them beating us by playing one up front with Neilson in a 5 man midfield.

Surely it's more 4-3-3 these days, that's what I would expect anyway.

PH probably has dreams about McKeown in goal, Pearson in all four slots at the back.  Disley in all four slots in midfield and two John Lewis' up front.


I remember being pelted with ice by the Norwich fans during the Milk Cup match, do you?

Disley's started less games this season that Clay, Brown and McLaughlin.

Sorry, of course it is. The manager said so didn't he? Told us thickies in no uncertain terms that we were not playing with a lone striker. So it must be right, those other two forwards are always up there in support of our gallant centre forward and never drop into a 5 man midfield.

Not sure I have ever seen a 4-3-3 when the front three always stay up as strikers, not even Barcelona?

Every one has Mackreth in there side, the bloke has a decent work rate and sticks the odd cross in now and again but have we not got any one better than him in the squad?
He's very light weight and a limited footballer IMO and gives us nothing Colebeck didn't give us. Not see him have a good game for us yet.


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Course not Chris, it's just my natural cynicism and sarcasm coming out again.

Teams playing 4-3-3 do get players forward in support asap though and, when it is played properly, the central striker is never left isolated.

I'm sure you're right they do !

There's no contridiction in my mind.

Who is saying they always stay up ?

Players will make runs but be also aware to drop defensively and position correctly into shape.
Perhaps this explains the 433/442 confusion in other matches ?

Exactamundo, so what's the silly fuss over a static flat 5 ?

The goals today apparently came from wide areas - as you'd expect...

Perhaps the simple point to agree is teams rarely keep the same shape during the whole game.

Great win today, UTM !
