If you are playing 3 at the back, with two very forward minded wing backs, someone needs to have a bloody word with the CH's.....

Flynn did mention the fact they were getting instructions on, but that is the issue you have with a team lacking that nous.  You really want to have players on the pitch who know what to do and when, not have to be told when to do it (because by then it is too late).  It's only a visual thing, as I am not at games, but you don't see anyone really driving the team on the pitch.  Same as last season really, just we appear to have a slightly better quality of player in the first team now than vs. May.

It's still really telling to me that defenders top the MotM poll, nobody can really lay any fault at individuals and yet we let the opposition have 16 shots at goal with < 40% possession in the game.

Flynn knows this, he did raise the balance of youth and experience himself.  The recruitment, while improving the talent pool, has not yet done that though.

...It's a real shame we couldn't have held out for the 3 points on Saturday, that could have really been a catalyst for the next league game, when Scott Lindsey is back in town.


Which you just know in peak Town stylee, they'll bloody lose. The daft shirt tugging, and unconvincingly fist pumping tactician extraordinaire will be creaming his tracksuit no doubt at how much CTFC means to him  Roll Eyes

I really don't want to dislike Scott Lindsey as he's had a tough old time personally, so I prefer to see him as a figure of fun. He's pantomime, unlike Sheridan, who was a nasty c***.

Annoyingly Crawley have started well and have had two decent results against promotion favourites, let's hope they've peaked already!

I'm in this camp also to be fair. At us, he was just out of his depth more than anything particularly vulgar. I do hope he doesn't attempt to play up to the crowd though in his interviews, he should just let bygones be bygones and move on. The comment about fans expecting Alex Ferguson was just a bit silly really.

Agree with most of that. Overlapping, adventurous CBs is a good route for the CBs we have. FBT and UGM are well capable of doing those roles well and its up to the players/management to sus out when to reign it in game management wise. I think a wise head in the midfield/defence would solve that.

I love Austin as a player and can see he is a good leader but Id love if we had enough leaders around the pitch that he could just be left to what hes good at, putting the ball in the net, you wont find anyone better in the league at that. Kinsella and FBT have that potential to lead from deeper and possibly Brewitt to an extent but Id love a proper experienced, leader type CB to come in and play in the middle of the back 3 who knows when to reign in FBT and UGM and when to let them go on their marauding runs.

Tbh, as inept as Jurassic John was, there's nothing glamorous about seeing the decline of someone with alleged dependency issues regarding a certain liquid vice. It's a shame because he was far from a poor player. Definitely should have stuck to cone carrying and those circa 3k appearance fees at public speaking events

It certainly wasn't glamorous but he was still a c***. You can have those issues and not be in cahoots with a rogue owner on a two man mission to destroy a football club.
