we have had negative style football since 2 months before Alexander left, and playing that way with young inexperienced players is a possible disaster.
we were promised 4 4 2 exciting attacking football which is better for young players to adapt to, so if Russ couldn’t make it work with experienced players what is this achieving, we are averaging 2 shots on target a game yesterday it was one, yet though we are not conceding many Tranmere only needed 2 shots and you can’t expect Rory playing a blinder every week seeing his previous 50 odd games didn’t produce any.
can’t understand the having your best players being on the bench or sat in the stand and when you play a lone striker why we are not playing 2 wingers, and no point saying the full backs are wing backs well they hardly get out of their own half and the right back is neither a full back or winger, from what I have seen in football wingers make better wing backs than full backs do.
I am afraid bottom 4 is looking possible because I can’t see us winning many games because we are relying on every shot going in the opposing net and it’s not thrilling to watch, when we get a corner we are now taking short ones and the ball doesn’t get into the area and also I know Neil is new to management but has been a number 2 for a few years what about a Plan b in formation if we go behind because when we are 0-0 we play brightly even if we put little pressure on the keeper but when we go behind you never imagine we will get a equaliser because we till look like we are playing for a 0-0 draw, no urgency, and the swapping of Vincent and Taylor in the second half was ridiculous.
and regarding Peter Swann being involved with formations and team selection I would doubt it, regarding transfers he has to approve them but would doubt if he has seen many of them play before unless he went to watch them last season with Lee Turnbull or the Manager, but wouldn’t be surprised if Russ has influence.
