It's baffling to call any team a one-man team when they also have the 2nd highest scorer in the league. And he (Yates) has not even been used as a striker most of the time.

I think we would probably have lost even with Doyle on Saturday tbh, given the current crop of absentees but no doubt if we do it will be attributed to his absence. Unless he signs in the next 36 hours

That's my hope, Yates steps up to the big boy role, we've then got space for another loan, shore up the defence, let Grant go back to running other teams around in midfield, Robert's your mother's brother.

Richie De Laet won a prem medal with Leicester and a championship medal with Middlesbrough in the same season

Fair enough. Wonder if it matters if say you start a season with your parent club and go on to sign for another? Whereas say Doyle, goes out on loan (that club get promoted) and goes back to parent club, gets promoted. Or does the order not matter?

Anyway, pretty much rebuffs my thought. Thanks.

Yates scored in both the games Doyle wasn't with us at the start of the season.

Anybody fancy looking up our points to games ratio in games without Doyle this season?

The kind of form that gets you promoted, odd.

We also scored 7 goals in those 4 games, and Yates got 4.

Not bad for a one-man team that was playing without that one man.

It actually puts Yates on a similar path as Doyle, which might suggest the way we play has a significant impact on the centre forwards ability to score - i.e we create chances for the middle man.  Obviously we still need someone, because Doyle coming was the result of Yates being suspended and it showed we didn't really have someone to fill the gap.  The reassuring aspect, although only 4 games, is that it suggests a decent enough player could be brought in to help provided we fill the gap with Yates out wide.

We could be a modern day version of the Spurs team with Clive Allen upfront.

Combined losses is ultimately what is going to hurt us short term as I'd put Anderson, Baudry and Fryers all in the same bracket as Doyle in terms of key players. With Doyle gone we could have done with Anderson's creativity and goals, Lyden is a miss also but we have cover for him on paper.

Yes, that was the risk with our recruitment this season.  However, only one or two are long term losses, so if we get through this month still intact, add a few players here and there along the way, we could be well set to maintain the momentum for the rest of the season.  Doyle is a loss, but the analysis of the 4 games without him give hope that we could replace it.  On top of that, a few of the teams below us have a couple of games in hand, which means they'll have more clogged fixture lists.  That could help us in a few months, especially as we banked the points.
