The main problem is that we don't have a genuinely creative midfielder/no.10 type who can pick a pass, contribute goals themselves or link effectively with a centre forward. Lewis, Flores and Pollock have all been tried there and none of them have had much of an impact in terms of goals or assists.

In the short term, I'd like to see Brady try swapping Connolly for Lewis and moving Hoskins inside so that the attacking triumvirate behind Etete became Pinnock, Hoskins and Connolly. Connolly's end product has left a lot to be desired but his pace causes problems against L2 defences and I think he's offered more of a threat than Lewis based on the games I've seen. The solidity of the DM pivot of McWilliams and Sowerby should give Brady a bit more scope to experiment with different options further forward.

In the long term, I'd like to see Brady bring a number 10 type in for January, even if it was a loanee.

Definitely agree with others that the club need to be proactive about offering Horsfall and Roberts new contracts. Both would be extremely hard to replace and both would potentially have significant re-sale value.

Could not agree more about dropping Lewis and giving Connolly a go.
I think he must be hard trainer though because Brady seems to like him.
Agree on a no 10 being a priority in Jan too as I'm happy with Sowerby and McWilliams in the pivot.
