It's ok to change formation and tactics boss. We must be opponents ideal preparation/set up. This is what I find most frustrating.

My question is what's going to change if we stick with Lindsey.

He comes across as a decent guy but they often don't make successful managers.

Want him to succeed but cannot see him getting us promoted- too inexperienced and lacking consistency for a top 3 finish

Weíve changed formation and personnel enough so far this season to suggest Lindsey isnít afraid to change it up.

Think currently heís a bit hamstrung by injuries and Williams going to the World Cup.
Like previously when weíve not played well we could see alternatives - be that personnel or formation but what could Lindsey have realistically done differently with todayís match day squad?

All well and good. Firstly we have to qualify to get in the PO. Secondly we have to overcome one of three teams equally as good as us (the table doesnít lie), thirdly turn up on the day of the final to join the promotion party.

Tell me, howís that looking right now? Now I know Iíve stated itís my belief we will un cork the cheque book in January but letís see how weíre placed on 01/01/23 then see who we get and who do we let go? After that it is the gunfight to the death up till May to secure that PO place. So many obstacles.

Edit. We could of course astound everyone and storm the league with who we have, thatís not looking to clever tonight as well.
It's looking like it always does. A thing worth winning. My point was you can't just dismiss the play offs as "not good enough" when there's a chance of winning em

4 at the back.
brought lavinier on and pushed Hutton wing.
brought on Reed
etc, etc.

apparently this squad has depth. we've only lost Williams and some center backs. So where is the depth?

Good points. Also why make the substitutions he did make so late in the game.

Fair but not sure any of that would have made us more potent upfront or turned Iandolo into a footballer or given us any additional outlet other than Hutton.

Just as example. If Shade had been on the bench he probably could have come on for Iandolo and added something different. Or maybe you could have put him through the middle and moved Wakeling wide left.

There is depth, but it's all the same level and same type of player.  We have recruited a bunch of players on the hope they will develop but I just don't see enough of a talent level to compete for the top 3 positions.

We simply don't have any players that change us from what we start with.  We don't have any game breakers.

Ending up in the Play Offs is not to be sniffed at, but we look like a team that's in a bunch trying to get into them, not a team scrapping for the Automatic spots that just falls short and ends up in the Play Offs.

The hope is we continue to get points with what we have and stay in touch until January and then invest.  I just don't think we will - the entire summer showed us we shouldn't get our hopes up on investing in players who are geared up to have a crack at the top of this league this season.  Everything is about seeing if we can polish players who haven't quite made it yet but are young enough that we might get lucky.

An example for me on the squad talent level is that I think a player like Davison would improve our front line.  He is not, n my opinion, good enough for the next level up, so the fact I'd have him in our team right now shows we are just not good enough (when assessing our talent vs a top 3 team).
