Presuming we get a CB sometime soon, Id imagine most of our business is done. So, how do we line up on Saturday?

4-3-3 seems to be the formation Brown fancies, so

Vigs
Knoyle New Fella Conroy Taylor
Dave Doughty Alzate
Anderson Fortune McGlashan

Assuming Fortune signs, if not, Adebayo

Someone has made a bid for Mansfields Danny Rose. Wouldnt mind him. But with Twine impressing Brown I doubt another forward is coming in.

Id be surprised if a new centre back came in and went straight in the line up for Saturday. I also think Diagouraga and Doughty could need another couple of weeks to get up to full fitness.
Of course, I hope Im wrong.

I don't think you are far wrong with that line up Audrey TBH.

Always a curve ball or two opening day but reckon PB has got it pretty fixed in his head.

                  LV
Knoyle Lancs Conroy Taylor
              TD Smith
McGlashan Doughty Anderson
               Adebayo

Lots of noise when Alzate signed but has he played? Don't recall much chat about him from the friendlies.

Thought he looked good v Pompey, and v Ciren.
But you know, friendlies... so caution required...

edit:  Or am I confusing him with Smith..

Pretty sure a couple of people, Audrey included, have said he played well in at least 2 of the games.

Alzate wins a penalty and scores it 3-1

Positives - Alzate is classy, very classy. Smith looks an excellent carrier, pass it on player.

My old man said Alzate is a 'gem' and that Town will make the play-offs. Heady stuff indeed.

Alzate looks the kind of player who could receive the ball just inside the opposition half, do a bit of magic and release one of the strikers quickly. Cant really think of any players weve had recently to compare him with.

 According to PB, Lancashire isn't fully up to speed yet... whereas Conroy is closer.  A little over a year ago we went into a second home game with Conroy/Lancashire and lost 0-3 to Crawley..... then followed it up with swapping Conroy for Robertson and lost 1-4 to Barnet.

 In theory with Toumani and MD in front of them we should be a bit tighter, but as we know, and the WC showed many goals are scored from set plays, something especially true of Div 4.

 Not having centre halves willing to head the ball, was a lament of Brown's last season.  So it's been surprising that we haven't as yet done anything about this weakness, if serious about going up.

I agree fully thats a major weakness we had last season and so far this pre season, but with PB its obviously not for the want of trying, he (it would seem) does not want to get more players in than he will use so is waiting for the right player to come along.

Yes its late for that going into the season in a few days but I personally wouldn't blame PB for not getting anyone in as he wants the right player, not just cloggers as Fliflop brought in last year.

Does Alzate suit playing CM with Doughty, in front of TD or is he competing with McGlashan, Anderson, Twine etc for a wide forward spot?

Looked more like a 10 against Pompey so should form part of a central 3 rather than playing wide.
