Id be looking to play the same back 4 as we did at Blackburn and Bradford as soon as is possible again..ÖTurnbull (lb),Poole, Taylor and Facey. We looked solid at the back (Blackburn), more so than in any recent times.

I can't help but think that teams are targeting Bunney, defensively he's a massive weak link and was so bad on Tuesday night Im surprised that JFH didn't drop him or move him further forward like he did at Blackburn.

What we are saying is precisely what the bulk of the Rochdale fans said on social media when we bought him. Good going forward but terrible defensively! I thought that when we played MK..wingers just walk past him! And his positional sense is shocking as well.

We are back to shipping in 2 goals a game or when we don't its because we've got lucky. Wimbledon aside, we've been heavily relying on our goal keeper and poor finishing from the opposition.

Id also like to see Keen played in John Joe's position, with the great man dropping back a bit. But until Keen is fit then that cannot happen! (like it did v Gillingham).


I agree with this, especially for away games it would make us a lot more secure defensively - of course itís all dependant on the fitness/availability of Poole. For home games where the onus is on us to attack/break down the opposition Jimmyís going to have to come up with an effective method pretty sharpish.  Itíll be interesting to see if oxford set up like Rochdale and Gillingham did - in fact Iíd be amazed if they donít provided theyíve scouted us properly. Itís getting to the point where Iíd suggest Buchanan getting a recall wouldnít be a bad idea given Bunneyís struggles but as Bunney is a JFH signing I canít see that happening.

Keen? You mean Van Veen.

Also, why would you push JJOT back into midfield when he's been so effective further forward? Just don't understand that.

Iíd echo that - itís a case of if it ainít broken it doesnít need fixing, the case in point being gillingham. My only concern is that the temptation is there - when everyone is fit - for jimmy to try and shoehorn players in when heíd be better off selecting a balanced team.
