Jeeezus criest! Talking about dropping Lockyer is just outright batshit. Our best player in two very poor games and a prospect with quality clearly above our current level.
I agree. I know everybody sees things differently, but talk of dropping Lockyer, is madness to me. Brown, Lockyer, Hartley, Leadbitter, look a decent back four, but something clearly isn`t right. We need a decent defensive coach to sort it out.
They are all decent players but for me they have one big negative point - defensive headers - Leads/Brown in particular, don't win enough and often put them back in the danger area. We also need a commanding CB to partner Locks, someone like Charlton's no.5 - who was a rock in the air. Hartley, I'd only use as cover. I don't think Leads for all his good points should play the whole season at RB. So I hope DC in Jan gets in a CB and a RB. UTG !
You must have been one of several on here waxing lyrical about what a great team MK Dons were and how they were in a false position and yet they were below us in the league. The very same MK Dons who were beaten at home last night by the leagues bottom team. I am quite happy for you to believe what you believe but as far as I am concerned Charlton were a far better team than us even when it was 11 v 11.
Erm, no. You're just making stuff up.
Glad to here you were not one. Not making anything up ref MK, you only have to read the threads on that game to see what I am quoting.
Christ, I've defended Roos as he's not at fault IMO when he's blamed but he should have done better with at least 3 of those goals.
Not sure what's happening, been tonked twice in three games now and the boys need us to get behind them more than ever.
It is no exaggeration to say that game would of been 1-1 if we'd had a decent keeper, who knows, even a win, as when you've got a keeper like that behind you you'd have all your confidence drained out of you - puddy ain't great, but he can't be any worse, if you keep the shirt after a performance like that you know it's yours whatever.
We played 4-4-2 with wingers like people have been crying for us to do at home and we got absolutely slaughtered. Hopefully that's the end of that.
I don't think 4-4-2 was the issue, it certainly didn't get any better when changed did it?
The problem is we have players who are in and out of the team with different faces alongside them, some are full backs one game and wing backs the next, attacking midfielder then holding midfielder. Plus on top of that we have a keeper who is inconsistent to say the least and 8-9 players id say were under par on the night.
Pick a formation, pick the best players for it and stick with that for 4-5 games.
