I have to agree with the calls to go 4-4-2 we have a very new squad that might eventually adapt to playing a back 5 but it will be too late by then. Just looking at the current squad it looks far more suited to 4-4-2

Most teams play a three in midfield, so with 4-4-2 you can get exposed in the middle of the park.

Bungle's formation from yesterday would be a good option 4-2-3-1 - two deeper midfielders with an attacking midfielder and two wider players supporting the striker.

BMON, I think I know your thoughts on this matter.

With regards to league 2 tactics and does anyone else play that way. Answer - Wycombe Wanderers, now of the Championship.

Our influence is NIL, so it is only KC who can improve the current situation and therefore be judged on the results!

I think we know that, it just the way you and others emphasize the point.

The nightmare continues...

The wall is being erected. Itís only short matter of time before the writing appears on it.....

Sounds like you know something's brewing?

Football is a results industry when judging managers, that is why I praise KC for getting promotion, even though I thought the standard of football was very poor! Morton and the last two games saved him.

Using those rules this season is not acceptable. The same poor standard of football and NOT the results.

KC insists of nullifying the opposition instead of imposing our game on the opponents! Hence our possesion is always less than 50%!

Our only win was when playing 4 at the back, coincidence? Add Adams and Marshall infront of the defence to create shooting opportunities then we might have a chance.

Over to KC.

When KC looks at this thread I'm sure he'll take your advice  Roll Eyes

I always find in funny when people say "over to KC" or "over to KT"  Grin

Whereís the width?

If it's the formation Bungle has named the width will come from Hoskins and Korboa. However, if it's wing backs the width will come from them.

Very odd starting line up

I like the look of it.
8  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Plymouth Argyle (a) on: October 17, 2020, 14:16:18 pm
Thatís a relegation starting 11 Iím afraid .


Why? No big up front, so in theory more football should be played. Is it a 4-4-2 or a 3-4-3 or 5-3-2??
9  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Plymouth Argyle (a) on: October 17, 2020, 14:10:11 pm
Team :

Arnold; Horsfall, Bolger, Martin; Harriman, McWilliams, Sowerby, Watson; Hoskins, Korboa, Rose.

Subs: Mitchell, Racic, Adams, Chukuemeka, Smith, Ashley-Seal, Marshall.
10  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer 2020 Transfer Window on: October 17, 2020, 13:52:54 pm
I actually think the signings of rose and Bernard ARE decent speculate to accumulate signings
The issue is that the mix is wrong in that the squad has zero experience and higher level quality.
Without this added quality the money ball signings wonít have a chance to show their quality and wonít command decent selling on fees.
The squad lacks any spine and I feel this will result in an instant return to the basement division.

Who's Bernard? Do you mean BENNY Ashley-Seal?
11  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer 2020 Transfer Window on: October 16, 2020, 18:40:46 pm
There will be a reason that they are free Agents. I sincerely hope the current squad comes good but just canít see it. Iíll watch the Merseyside Derby tomorrow and having paid another tenner probably watch through another Town display to ruin my weekend and wish Iíd gone to watch Horsham play the ball on the ground instead

Yeah, because no club has signed them  Tongue

I don't think anybody wants us to splurge a load of cash we don't have, but when funds are limited, that just makes spending it correctly even more important.

We've managed to close the transfer window with only three senior centre backs on our books, two of whom have been pants so far, even though we start with three centre backs in Curle's preferred system. That means either Racic goes back in the team, or a full back continues to play out of position to plug the gap. God forbid we have one or even two injuries in this position.

We have no direct replacement for McCormack. We have no direct replacement for Oliver, even though we have about half a dozen forwards in the squad now.

But apparently we shouldn't panic because there are 'more free agents than usual this year' - in other words, we're planning to plug gaps in the squad reactively, by seeing which journeyman who hasn't played a competitive game for 8 months is willing to take up a short term deal here as a last resort. This is despite Curle saying before the P*sh game that he wants to follow their model of signing young, hungry players in the Korboa or BAS mould, with potential resale value. Is that really the plan? Because the autumn free agents route seems at odds with that.

I think we've got recruitment all wrong this summer. If we continue shipping two or three goals a game then we'll go down and we'll be able to trace the reasons why back to this transfer window.

Who says the free agent/s will be "journeyman"??

Don't give up hope Shoey. Last season we signed Harriman and Anderson when they were free agents. And January is just round the corner  Wink

It won't be long until January Shoey  Grin
15  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer 2020 Transfer Window on: October 16, 2020, 17:06:43 pm
Transfer window closed. Club still monitoring the free agent market, with lots of players still available.

Exciting half hour ahead.....

Change the record  Roll Eyes
17  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: The P*sh (Saturday 10th October) on: October 13, 2020, 17:25:07 pm
Canít say I noticed him doing that!

That's what Keith said after the game (and Ferguson), then because it wasn't very successful he changed it at half time bringing on Watson. 
18  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: The P*sh (Saturday 10th October) on: October 13, 2020, 17:13:36 pm
How much freedom would Dembele have had with McCormack snapping away at him? Iíd have given Missilou that job on Saturday. Where he goes you go.

He can't man mark two players. He was tasked with man marking Szmodics - not very successfully either. 
19  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Summer 2020 Transfer Window on: October 13, 2020, 15:42:49 pm
Nuttall....any ideas? as no reporter seems bothered asking KC the question!  Roll Eyes

KC said a player was suffering from "illness", and as everyone else was fit on Saturday (except Pollock), Nuttall must be the one suffering from illness. Probably.
20  The Hotel End / Cobblers Corner / Re: Keith Curle appreciation thread on: October 12, 2020, 13:35:14 pm
I think supporters are due an up date on Nuttall .
Is he still with us or what ?
Why donít the media ask these questions .

Keith mentioned a player was suffering from illness, he's probably the player in question.
