I mean wide in a 343 or 3412 is a very similar ‘wing back’ role really so nothing changes in that regard though both MSH and Kitching were full backs in a four at Hartlepool and Fryers played as a CB in a back four at Swindon and impressed when fit so I’d be happy switching to a back four but Rusk won’t.We actually finally get our LWB fit, sign a left sided centre back who likes playing in a 3 and now we're changing away from the wing backs?
We really don't make a lot of sense do we?
Personally never a fan of the wing back formation at any level, it would never be my choice. Always ends up a back five if you start getting up against it and it's harder to get on the front foot IMO. Every fucker plays it in this league though. Notts, Chesterfield, Wrexham, think Dagenham did.
What's this about Whitfield being in his best position on Saturday wnm? I was pissed out my head for most of it but it looked to me like he was just playing behind behind Madden and Reid and running around fucking wherever which he did a great job of second half.
Plot twist. Scunny have said "Both clubs will be making no comment" indicating that they are the ones keeping it undisclosed because they have been diddled, so please open your little spreadsheet and a knock a zero off that wildly inaccurate 200k please my friend.200k. Saved document.
Apologies to the brothers who keep getting Dropbox notifications. Not my fault Grimsby haven't been transparent.
There's no way we'll keep up a front 3 when Quigley's back however.I mean wide in a 343 or 3412 is a very similar ‘wing back’ role really so nothing changes in that regard though both MSH and Kitching were full backs in a four at Hartlepool and Fryers played as a CB in a back four at Swindon and impressed when fit so I’d be happy switching to a back four but Rusk won’t.
First half I couldn’t really work out our formation but second half it very much looked like 343 with Whitfield keeping the width wide left of a three, Reid central and Madden playing narrow off the right and allowed to drift where he wanted.
That’s certainly what happened for the second goal as Whitfield worked his magic near the left touchline, Madden picked up his cross at the far post, layed it back to Croasdale and our left wingback/winger in Rydal had got in the box to tap it home.
I think its the other way around. Not short of effort and commitment but ability wise wasn't quite there. Having said that he was more productive than a couple of players that were getting minutes ahead of him.Left winger for Torquay, I think he was left side of a middle three on Saturday but he pretty much dominated the whole front-left quadrant in the second half against Wrexham.
I still don't see us switching to actual wingers at any point, not even a military intervention could stop us from playing wing-backs
Anyway. Seems Bratfud fans have been saying he's got bags of talent but lacks the application, we've all heard that before. Well worth yet another three-year contract.
Might not be the only reason. Perhaps Burchnall knew Joel Taylor was available, preferred him to Miller and could get him for less money per week
Yea I'm not really surprised, Rowe is really keen on him, I think he's the only player other than the keeper who hasn't missed a game regardless of the competition. Mind you it's not hard to see why, a good chunk of our goals have been down to his play down that side, we're a bit reliant on him I fear. As good as Carline is, I'd like to see King get more game time then you've got drive and a good cross down each sideBurchnall finally got asked directly about Miller at a fans forum thing he did last night. Said we were keen to sign him, but when he told us what you’d offered there was no way we could come close financially so walked away.
Why?There's no way we'll keep up a front 3 when Quigley's back however.
Yea he's good. Hope you don't nab him cos he's not done much wrong other than pick up a slight knock, Carline stepped in and shown why he was POTY for us last season, he's just crazy dependable down that side. I think King offers more in terms of pace, ability to beat a man and whip a ball in, which Carline hasn't really got though. Just unfortunate we can't play bothKing’s looked a fantastic player every time I’ve seen him, surprised he’s not an automatic pick for you. Hopefully we can pick him up in January.
Seymour isn't very tall, he needs the ball through to his feet. His record isn't very good, last season he had his best chance when he was picked for three or four games in a row when Bowman was suspended and didn't really take his chance. Most fans groan if he comes on because of his record, but it may be just a confidence thing. We generally played one up front, which doesn't really suit him. If you play 2 it might be better.Thoughts on them both?
If I had one word to describe him it would be busy.We have just signed Elliott Newby on loan from Stockport. Midfielder apparently. What can we expect? How would you rate him Stockport fans?
He can play either side aswell can't he? Plenty of places for a rotation in the forward lines.I like Newby. Tidy little player, it's baffled me how he's not had a much of a look in this season especially as we haven't been so creative. He's not been getting on the bench in recent weeks and we've signed Crankshaw from Bradford so it's fair to let these players go out and get games.
Wouldn't surprise me at all to see him do well at Halifax. Only slight observation considering I was at the game at your place the other week, I'd say he's a similar player and would play in a similar position to Warburton and he's obviously doing alright for you so be interesting to see how you get them both in.
He's an attacking midfielder but if you played a 4-2-3-1 yeah you could play him out wide. Not a chalk on the boots wide man though, like I say similar to where you'd put Warby in a team depending on your set up.He can play either side aswell can't he?

No no. We hadHe's an attacking midfielder but if you played a 4-2-3-1 yeah you could play him out wide. Not a chalk on the boots wide man though, like I say similar to where you'd put Warby in a team depending on your set up.
When we played you though, weren't you playing a midfield diamond with 2 up top?
