I think in league 2 it pays to keep things fairly simple, the players don't cope with system changes very well. Therefore it makes sense to make mainly like for like changes. Sometimes more pace may be needed , sometimes better passing and technique may be required. I understand Curly's theory of putting a forward on to get us playing in Morecambe's half but this only succeeded in getting us playing hoofball. One way to see out a game is to keep the ball, unfortunately we are very short of technical players who can keep us in possession. Pollock has shown us he can pass, perhaps he needs more time on the pitch with Chris Lines to learn how to manage a game?
I agree with everything you are saying here , but if we canít keep the ball against teams like Morecambe and Stevenage there is something very wrong . Curle instructs the players to get rid of the ball early .
Who can forget forget his quote after the Stevenage game complaining that too many players came short looking for the ball rather than chasing after it being lumped down the pitch . Thatís why I think itís hard to criticise the players .
At the end of the day ,we are in mid table mediocrity which is about where we deserve to be .
