Boris, this is a pitiful attempt at getting back on to the front foot.  Now run along.

Ooh you are clever, and northern too who knew.

You understand that yes, if not happy to explain

Must be your bedtime nighty night

Ps I am always on the front foot but not sure you quite get it do you 

Bless you, I shouldn't mock the more mentally  challenged but it is fun

I’m on Planet Earth mate, the same one Duran Duran sang about. 
So do you think 3 wins and a draw out of 5 games constitutes a ‘crap run’ ?

If you analyse more than just the bare bones of those 5 games we have been awful

If we take those 5 games though, we were good against Wigan and for 70 mins against Wimbledon and for the last 15 minutes against Mansfield, yet we have still won 3 and drew 1

Football is a results based business, so those thinking Moore should be sacked when we are 7th (on goal difference) need to give their head a wobble. It’s very conceivable that this time tomorrow we will be in the top 6

I don't want him sacked now, I agree it is wrong to do so when we are well placed.

 

It is fair to question a fair few things though. Our performances in month one were better than they have been since. We are playing formations and players to combat the opposition rather than finding an approach that suits our strengths. Moore's substitutions rarely effect positive change for us. 

 

We were good for around half an hour against Wigan, the first half was a poor game of football all round, the last 15 minutes were hanging on. 

The Mansfield game doesn't hold much sway, we were terrible for 70 minutes against one of the worst performing teams in the football league, winning in the last minute of the game papered over many cracks in that display.

 

We were as good as we have been for a long time on Saturday for an hour, then conceded a goal, made a very debatable substitution and blew 2 points.

100% this.

We have some quality players and should play our own game and let the opposition worry about us.

DM does not pick the side according to the opposition, never has.

He's using it as an excuse for changing the side when it doesn't work.

Every change he has made has followed a natural progression to fit the formation, based on performance and fitness.

Bannan and Wing at DM. 

Going two up top as one wasn't scoring.

All natural progression. 

 

We've played our own game from day one.

Have to disagree,  you find/play your best 11 and don't constantly keep changing the players/tactics/formation, unless injury forces or you're changing to counter the opposition, which seems to be happening.

So my point was play the strongest 11 in a formation that suits us and let them worry about our formation.

Just my opinion.

Injury did force most of the changes.

Losing all of the DM players made him play Bannan and Wing there, which made him play more defensive wingers to compensate. Some of those didn't work out, so he changed them. Not for the opposition, more as he had players out of their normal positions to make up for gaps in the formation.

The 352 is to accommodate Gregory as he couldn't play as lone striker.

If he did plan for the opposition, the only one will have been Wigan, the rest were to try and make the 4231 work.

So what do you do when your strongest formation loses three on the trot?  Keep playing them or change to a weaker formation?
