What do you think, as a partnership?

Doyle is clearly a poacher, whereas Yates is going to hassle the fuck out of the opposition's defense with his running and work rate. They will have some good service as well methinks.

I'd say Yates has the energy to play the number 10, along with a bit of craft and pace.  Doyle seems to be more of an in the box player but can put his elbows and body about when needed.

i reckon Woolery and Anderson will lose out to these two, or they may all get rotated.  That's good, creates competition and options.

Actually, they sound like a 1800's Detective duo TV programme, maybe on ITV?

I think Woolery will lose out, he's not quite clicked so far. Anderson has done better since being given a proverbial boot up the arse.

Woolery would be a fantastic option as an impact sub, though. You wouldn't want to play against him with tired legs.

Why not try all 4? No one would attack in numbers, they'd be too scared.

Isgrove is too good for L2.

The Bradford forum posters were in 5he main less than impressed with Doyle. His apologists or more open minded critics thought he might have performed so much better alongside a traditional centre forward.. Seems he'd been the lone front man (or no, 10) and that he'd disappointed.  Thus at full strength, I'd like first to look at Yates AND Doyle with initially Anderson and, as sub, the speedy and sometimes clinical Woolery. Any front 3 combo of Doyle, Yates, Woolery and Anderson - with Isgrove and Doughty additionally available to create is rather demanding at L 2, imo.  Keeping 'em fit and available will require a tad of good fortune but, if so....

Getting results with one up front - so no need to change it to accommodate both strikers just yet.

Didn't see today. 

Agree but horses for courses depending on oppo and whether home or away etc.

A goal to his name today will hopefully boost Doyle's confidence from its allegedly low base at present.

Fair point, but hypothetically speaking... ?

Also, which is better?

Playing them both upfront getting 10 goals each or playing one over the other and he gets 20 goals  Hmmm

Wellens, pre season, said he wanted to play with 2 up front - now, that has to be Yates and Doyle. You aren’t going to leave out the 2 players you have been after all along - especially one that has cost your chairman a fair old wedge.

Can’t drop Anderson on his performances so far, so it’d have to be Woolery unfortunately - and he’s done nothing wrong either.

Although we have a whole host of attacking players in the side, we haven’t, so far, looked like being overrun at the back. Whether some of that is down to our threat making opposition scared of committing, I don’t know.

The 3 managers we’ve played against so far have all commented on our pacy breakaways so the word spreads around.

Where we’ll struggle is when the likes of Lyden, Baudry and Isgrove can’t play for any extended period as we don’t have adequate replacements. Tbh, the FBs still look a bit vulnerable at times but even so they are an upgrade on what we’ve had previously.

Would anyone want Knoyle instead of either?
