Good post Barton!!

What I just don't get is Curles persistence in trying to play 3-5-2 when we patently don't have the players for it, but then, having selected that formation we set out to try and nullify the oppositions strengths rather than exploit their weaknesses.

That just ends up with players playing in unfamiliar positions getting dragged all over the park and not looking like that have a clue how to play football, not knowing who is supposed to be doing what, and not knowing where their team-mates are when we actually do get hold of the ball and look to play a bit.

You can always pass it around the back nicely because, at this level teams don't press with the same intensity as say Liverpool or Man City do. The problems start when you get near the half way line and your own players seemingly don't know where to run to, don't run into space anyway, so you lose the ball, are stretched and leave massive gaps for the opposition to exploit.

I couldn't help but notice one of the Colchester goals, their second goal, McWilliams ran past their attacking player in the opposite direction....their man ran right to left, McWilliams came from the left and ended up on the right side of the penalty area........clueless!!
