Swindons Pirlo. I mentioned this last season as there was clear correlation to wins and starts for him. It's carried on again.

Games Started P8 W5 D2 L1 (The great Northampton Robbery)
PPG 2.1

Games Without P5 W1 D1 L3
PPG 0.8

I wouldnt even say he's playing his best, I dont like him that deep but it's clearly his assigned job and it keeps the team ticking with his passing and movement. We talk about the importance of the new boys Isgrove, Doyle and Grant but he is right up there and it can't be coincidence its happened again.

Good stat. The question is how we squeeze Doughty, Grant and Lyden in. It probably means Yates playing wider in a 4-3-3/4-5-1. A diamond removes the wide men. Nice problem to have.

Either that, or we played some right old shite teams with him in the side and lost to the better teams when he wasnít playing.

I was sitting in front of someone Saturday talking a pile of crap; including saying how more points we got when Doughty wasn't in the side. Couldn't be bothered to correct them.

To get our strongest midfield on the pitch you have to go 4-2-3-1 and sacrifice Yates

Lyden & Grant as the 2

Isgrove - Doughty - Anderson as the 3

My fave player. Not hit the heights of last season yet(goals wise, but is playing deeper)Still think he has the most quality/creativity in our squad, isgrove close behind.

I disagree with DV.
I think Yates is integral to our way of playing - his work rate, holding the ball up and bringing others into play is underrated by some. On Saturday he played wider after Anderson went off and did a good job in that position.
Iíd also play Lyden further forward - his vision and first time passes will create chances there. Doughty has a wider range of longer passes which are particularly useful for quick counter attacks. Neither Doughty nor Lyden are particularly quick and donít appear to like running at defenders (unlike Anderson, Isgrove and Yates.

Itís probably academic anyway to some extent as with injuries and suspensions we will probably be fitting in those who are fit and available most of the time.

And thatís without even mentioning Danny Rose. Less than a year ago we thought McGilp was this yearís hope.

Doughty isnít a 10 or a 4 (deep lying centre mid) where heís been playing recently in a 442. Would be great to see him at 8/attacking centre mid - as he was second half v Crawley in 433

Yates has to start. With isgrove and Andersonís fitness there will always be some natural interchange there.

I'd agree Doughty is capable of making runs in the box and getting shots off, at the moment playing deeper he cant do that.

Didn't he end up leaving P'Boro due to playing out of position and not enjoying his football there
