Hes only play in midfield hardly pillar to post, yes I agree with people hes better on the wing, but hes been lackluster, sometimes getting dropped is what gives you that motivation back so hopefully it's worked now so swap him in for Murphy next game for me.

 

By midfield i assume you mean forward, left mid, centre mid, right mid, left back and right back.

 

Sorry, yes, you are correct. He hasn't played centre back or goalkeeper...

He is. Neshed yet another 50/50 today. No wonder he’s got a good injury record!

 

You mean when he was intelligent enough to cover the break from another poor bannan delivered free kick? 

The same move he took one for the team to stop the 2v1?

When was the last time he played left back or right back?

Dropped and we put in the worst performance of the season. In fact the worst display I’ve seen in a long time.

 

But Owlstalk and Wednesday Twitter know best...

 

You can't say he had been playing well in the games leading up to today.

 

Consistency is key to maintaining progress. We have a squad with many who can perform at top 6 level in this division 'on their day'. Unfortunately most of them have too many off days to maintain that level throughout a season.

 

Last weekend for example it was Bannan on the bench after we had played well the game before - we were poor first half at Millwall and improved when he came on.

 

Perhaps if we went into games, especially away, with a more positive mindset then we might get ore out of our midfield in an attacking sense.

Yeah but he isn’t a hard tackling midfielder, that isn’t his game 

we wouldn’t  give grief to hutch for not dribbling past 6 players and megging 3 defenders because his game is to do the dirty work.

Agree

 

 

Reach is one of our best players for a variety of reasons and can influence games.

 

He's not been at his best this season but even when he is he neshes more challenges than any gifted player I've seen in a Wednesday shirt.

 

Sorry Petals if some of you don't like this opinion.

Reach doesn't do that either

 

Not looking for him to be a Hutch but do expect him to challenge for a 50/50. Not jump out the way and allow the opposites to break away.

Im not saying he does, but he does a lot of work off the ball. Is pretty much spot on positionally and  Creates plenty of chances and can score goals. 

 

My point was you cant judge a player for not jumping into tackles when it isn’t his game. 

 

Reach gets far too much stick from our fans.

Three of those games he was playing out of position.

 

Its like banging your head against a brick wall on here half the time

So what is his best position then?

 

He has been playing out of position for ages if that is the case.

Always rated him, just not as a centre mid. It’s criminal that he’s come on and just provided that sublime assist. Should have started, he’s a quality player and we should be making the most of his talent.

I mentioned te the other day, for me he needs pairing with one of the quick lads on the opposite wing. 

We can mix it up then with a different style of player on each side. I like to be tactically flexible and create the opposition different problems going forward 

For me we go reach & Harris. 

Then we can rotate or change things up with Murphy & Nando. 

 

This way we keep pace on one flank to stretch teams, but we have guile and craft on the other flank from Nando or reach. 

Makes complete sense to me.

On the wing. Left or right.

 

Did a job in the middle when we had an injury crisis under Jos. That’s it. The lad has played here, there and everywhere and still has been a consistent performer for the team.

 

Now imagine what he’d be like if we played him week in week out in his best position.

I said he was one of our more important players.

 

Not asking for him to jump in to tackles but sure as hell don't want him to jump out of most of them.

Lee aside. ( he was poor today but generally good) we have one plan so far under Bullen. Knock long diagonal balls to our wingers. 

The way we are playing doesn’t suit bannan or reach, and tbf the last three games we have been found out and teams are playing to that. 

 

The quality of the players has bailed us out so far but tactically we have it wrong.

But that’s not what he does. It’s like asking a fish to ride a bike. 

 

we all know he isn’t a tackler. He isnt in the team for that. And you are right he is one of our more important players, for everything else I mentioned. Not tackling
