We are a bit stuck formations wise - the midfielders we have are all central bar McGlashan and maybe Iandolo.  The front players are all set-up to play off someone who isn't there and we have a left back who is not really a left back and can only really perform when he doesn't have to worry about defending (even last night he was targeted and lost either the header, the player or put the ball into touch reaching for a header).  It is all a bit squiffy.  I think the squad can really only play 4-5-1 or 3-5-2.  That means we have to work out the best starting eleven that will work as a team and get it gelling.  I don't see Alzate and Anderson working together for example.  neither is really much good out wide and both are too likely to go down a blind alley to play together in the middle of midfield and could not be relied upon as the central forward.  Richards is never going to work in the 4-5-1 with his current legs and style of play.  He might work in the 3-5-2 with the right delivery and partner.  Lancashire would probably have to play in the three man defence and that is a problem, something is just not right with, I do think he is broken somewhere and it is not his fault.  So then you think you have to go with 4 at the back and that exposes Taylor..................messy.

I've stated it before my ideal starting XI would be;

McCormick/Vigs

  

  Lancs/Conroy (CB)

Woolf (RCB)                    Sid (LCB)

            Knoyle (RWB)                                                        Taylor/Iandolo/ (LWB)

      
       Dave (CDM)
 
Dunne/Alzate (RCAM)             Doughty (LCAM)


Crazy/Woolery (S/S)
                                            
                           Richards/Someone new (ST)

Issue with that - the Exeter game showed the back three didn't know how to work together.  Taylor doesn't have the legs to play wide without another player able to back him up unless we play a team using the same formation (Plymouth never doubled up out wide).

Hence the need for an out and out LB/LWB and a striker. The two positions most of us have highlighted from the off. We need those two positions sorting in Jan.

It really was, wasn't it?

My first game since the Forest Green League Cup match and little has changed... Something needs to change, and fast.

Called in to Phillips fish and chip shop  in Gorse Hillfor our tea tonight.  Robin informed me that apart from his football special offerings Phil King had obtained an order for him to supply the Cambridge team and officials with their supper after the game.  Had to be delivered to the team coach at 10pm.  Pity he hadn't delivered it before the game, they may have been as slow as us for the first 15 minutes!
