Having an outlet like Roberts would be bloody useful. 

 

Someone with that pace and ability to beat a man. 

 

He's had Jacobson largely on toast so far. 

Its how we should use Johnson but don't

Stockdale has some explaining to do there, what actually was that ?    Beyond poor 

Needs to explain that goalkeeper top too. 

 

The 1990s called up and it wants that thing back.

My Mackem mate told me that his first good games were against us, he’d largely been disappointing up till that point.

 

Good timing for them

We’d have beaten Wycombe I have no doubts about that. I also think if you’d have swapped the managers around in the semi final we’d have won that as well.

Not sure Marv is quite as quick tbh, though he does have a trick in him. 

 

Thing with Marv is his delivery is usually so good that he doesn't necessarily have to beat the man.

I don't think that's fair. 

 

We played some really good football last season. 

 

Exactly played same way at home. Big pitch and big crowd behind you, makes all the difference.

Our opponents won't let us.

 

High Wycombe didn't let us either.

 

Neither did Sunderland.

 

Yet Sunderland are managing to play that way against Wycombe.

 

Could it be tactical?

We can't. 

 

We don't have the pace, movement or stamina up front to open up play like this and keep it up.

 

We can do it for a 5-10 minute burst, but then that's us done.

Don't think he's as quick but he's no slouch and 9/10 defenders in this league aren't the fastest either. Push him further up and get him delivering more often we'll see the reward

I'd not play him as a wingback and give him a role where he's more of conventional winger. Let hunt or Palmer drop into the defensive line when we don't have the ball and move it across. It'd keep him further up and used as an out ball, something Roberts is showing today that is vital to get up the pitch quicker

we did play some good football at home. Complete opposite in a lot of the away games, sitting back against some really poor teams.

I agree with you Big D.

 

Both these teams stifled us, and were scared to let us play.

 

However Neil isn't allowing Ainsworth to stifle him, therefore Moore is tactically inferior to Ainsworth, who in turn is tactically inferior to Neil.

 

What sickens me is that we have the playing staff to beat either of these, and we're now looking at another season in the Third.
