Plan A will work if we move the ball quicker and have runners.
Having a centre half who can pass helps with the above.
Plenty of movement off the ball helps with the above.
The ability to pass the ball in front of a player helps with the above.
We need to cut that extra pass, touch, flicks down.
Pass it easy, then move into space to become an option for the receiving player.
The players need to realise that it is more physical in this division.
We had more ability than Shrewsbury, they had more heart and won a lot of the second balls in the second half.
We should have really been out of sight after 25 minutes. It felt as though the players found it easy and took their foot of the gas, then could not re-apply it.
I'll accept yesterday's performance this early on, however if it is still happening by the time December then some questions will really need answering.
Yesterday's team selection would have been fine for an away fixture, strong and decent counterattacking options. However at home when we need to force the issue we need more creativity
Lastly most people's idea of a plan B is,
"Gerrit in Mixer"
