I know they're saying JJOT is Injured, bit weird his shirt wasn't up in the changing room though when everyone else's was.

He didn't feature in the training today though... so no reason to have a shirt printed, and hung up.

Is there a link to this anywhere? Thought the surgery would sort out his groin problem, hoping this is unrelated.

Tweet from the club today. They said a lot of people have been asking about JJOT and then gave the reason as I've outlined above.

And his 107 appearances covers the season where we ended on 99 points so blaming last year's strike force isn't that valid an argument either.

Why not? Last years strike force and the L2 strikers with Collins, Marquis, Richards ,Adams including Holmes etc was I suggest pretty effective when compared with last season. But for JJOT and Taylor's goals we would not have survived. The simple fact is that last years strike force did not compare at all with the previous season in its ability to convert crosses.

As I pointed out on another thread, JJOT had an injection on Friday and has been told to rest for a few days (according to the club).

Nice kit, very nice. I handed over 81 English pounds for mine and my sons. A bit pricy but thats football shirts for you. Certainly one of our better looking kits.

He was at Rushden on Wednesday night so its just this weekend he's gone 'awol'. It does make one nervous though!  Grin

I've held the view for many years that for a lower or moderately financed club to get out of its league, 5-3-2 (3-5-2) is the way to go. With a top end budget, the more attacking options (like Wilders one when we won l2) are probably better.

Why? Because defenders or defensive players in general cost less money at our level than strikers/attacking players do. So you can stock up on good quality defenders and midfielders easier if you've got a bit less cash to spend than your rivals.

All of our top players are either defenders or solid looking midfielders. Where as our attacking options (in general) are overall not quite as tasty. Thats not to say they are not good, but I think its fair to say that our defensive and midfield units are both top8 in terms of overall quality where as our attacking unit is more middle8.

To get a Pierre/Poole/Crooks standard striker, you've got to be looking at 6/7/8-10k a week even at this level. Not the 3 - 4k a week level I suspect those players earn. Guess work of course but you aint gonna get a top league1 striker for 3 grand or even 4 grand a week. Not a chance! You've got to hit the lucky button, getting yourself 'a Lobjolt' on peanuts and reaping in the rewards in the short period of time before his contract is adjusted accordingly or he's flogged!

With the players we have (fullbacks/wingbacks) Id say only DB is not overly suited to this formation. The other 3 (and Im basing Smith on what I saw this week) can all bomb forward no problems. You don't build a team/squad around one single player. DB cannot cross the ball though, anyone who thinks he can will soon be changing their mind if he's our left 'wing back' come August. But the number 10's job could be to help out on the left side on the occasions DB moves into the final third. Its a flexible system.

What is the difference between 5-3-2 and 4-3-3 as both can easily be achieved by a sub or change of formation. I like the sound of 5-3-2 with Poole supporting the midfield  a la 4-3-3. It also strongly hints at flexibility. Can the experts on here tell why they dont like JED's new system. Or is it purely based on the apparent growing anti JE party.

would be happier if it was a midfield 3 and not the 2 with another player in the hole as suggested as I just think it leaves us too short in midfield, also for any 5 man defence to work the full backs need amazing stamina to get up and down the wings all game otherwise they end up as standard full backs and with five at the back you end up bringing the opposition on, giving them good possession in good attacking areas and its not even as if we have loads of pace in attack to hit teams on the counter.
