Wonderful Windass Wings Westward to Wicked Wednesday Winners!

In the 352 he would play in the two I think.

 

I know people are looking at the formation against Leicester and concluding Brown is number 10 but I think he will play as a number 8. Linking midfield to attack.

 

According to your theory the top 2 become wingers and I don't see that.

 

 

 

No - I think the top 2 will be strikers in a traditional way.

 

On Saturday Monk played 1 really in Rhodes with Harris and Reach as wingers/wide men. Brown pushed up as the no 10 in front of BB and Luongo as the traditional central midfielders. I thought the formation was a bit unbalanced as the right side had Palmer in a deep right wing back with Reach in front of him, but Harris didn't have anyone behind him; which meant Van Atkin ended up covering the left wing back position. That's how I saw it.

We’ll play 3-5-1-1 and will next bring in a target man.

 

I think that's the alternative, but we have to bin Rhodes for it to be successful.

I don’t think most would have an issue with that

I think after Saturday, even Monk and Beattie will have all but given up on him. Not mobile enough for what we need, if he's the only target man.

Most won’t but there will be some that argue we don’t “play to his strengths” and that he’ll score a hatful if we do. I’d love for Rhodes to come good but I gave up on him ages ago.

If he’s in Wigan he’d be heading east right? 🧐

 

Neil still thinks we're signing Dean Windass from Hull.

Very underwhelming, but key to getting this to work, is the type of centre forward who will play ahead of him A lumbering target man type, and then it’s a pointless signing. Windass is going to need a quick mobile striker ahead of him, whom he can feed those little passes

Why are you underwhelmed, we have Jordan Rhodes to make his dynamic runs and one-touch interplay off of him?

He averaged a goal every 264 minutes at Rangers.

 

At Wigan it was a goal every 434 minutes, although a goal every 270 minutes last season.

 

He averaged a goal every 156 minutes while on loan at Hillsborough last season.

 

How did his contribution work towards a winning team? 

 

Wigan improved after he came to us and in the 9 games he played for us, we won 1.

reportedly the transfer hangs in the balance as we are trying to negotiate terms to pay monthly

Can we only work on one deal at a time? I understand this deal may be complicated, though heaven knows why, but surely we could complete other deals while we wait to get this one over the line

They should switch to O2
