If we pick a versatile selection, TonyM, we can make THEM find they are up against it.  If we play a defensive line-up, we will be under the cosh, IMHO.  Surprised Notts Country arenít higher, as they looked very good in the snatches Iíve seen, particularly the attack and their offensive midfield.  We have to make then defend, not attack so often.....

All about opinions, of course, but 3 CHs, a GK, 2 FBs, and 2 defensive midfielders , though understandable, gave us every chance of spending most games in and around our own penalty area. (IMHO! !  Found a good shape now -the next 6 games could be fun !

Great performance, and result.  Much more balanced and versatile selection (IMHO) ensured we had a chance of being up their end a lot more, if youíll pardon the expression, thus giving us much less defending (and failing) to do.  In the end, to have lost would have been a travesty.  Power was immense, but all played very well indeed.  We need fear no team in this league if we stick with that shape of team.  And King, Kelly, and Carey wonít lessen our performance.  Good thinking from the management duo, and great support, as always, from Stephen.  Notts County players may have double-stuffing over the Xmas period !......

Hi Mall - The Dilly line-up only uses the numbers (451, 442, 433, etc..) for the line-up at the start. They have to stand somewhere.  After that, they move, which messes the numbers up straightaway.  So the plan is most behind the ball when the opponents have it, then, when we get it, move forward in ways that aim to have a man free for the next pass.  Seriously, weíll have to be ruddy mobile on Saturday, but you never know.  I might play yet, but I wonít charge....Happy Xmas to everyone on here, particularly KES, WLM, Tony M, B&G, and yourself, ie those who have benefited most from my tuition......Sorry I havenít offended everyone, Iíll get round to it asap.....
Oh, The Dilly team for Torquay...(not knowing the injury news)....  Mair:  Jones/Barrows, Smith, McFadden, Brown;  Carey, King, Loza/Kelly/Richards. Power;  Marriott, Southwell.  If we can sneak more than eleven, letís go for it....

True story - Peter Morris came up to me in Tamworth, and said ďShould I play Gary Setchell at Centre- Forward ?  I rue the fact I laughed and said that it was up to him !  I shouldíve done a Mourinho and made out he needed me more than I needed him !  I might have been at Barcelona by now ! (Instead of a forum nutter - this isnít the only one !)

TonyM - Happy Xmas !  For the record, I donít have a formation, or rather, not just one.  Formations only work on a Subbuteo board, for me, because in real life, players move !  And they move at a secondís notice, with a marker having no chance to keep up.  I certainly donít have a 2-2-6 formation.  I have a 10-1 formation when the opponents are attacking in numbers, less when theyíre coming at us with less.  When we have the ball our ďformationsĒ should be ever  changing, to try to outnumber them in triangles, or whatever.  Home or Away.  Teams with a GK, 3 CHs, 2 FBs, and 2 defensive MFs only have 3 players to try pin them back.  Tonightís result, IMHO, had very little chance of scoring more than the enemy !  I have decided to charge £20 for that one ......

Very true KES - they are the two problems... money/full time fitness, better stadium, but also geography.  Itís down to us to keep turning up in large numbers to ensure that we eventually compete with the better teams.  I think we can do it.

I donít think it was just the water logging.  I suspect they didnít want our team of Centre-halves, full backs, defensive  ďholdingĒ midfielders, and goalkeeper to mess their penalty areas up for the rest of the season !

I think all the suggested line-ups on here would struggle to get over the half-way line.  A GK, 5 defenders, including 3 CHs, then 2 more defensive M-Fs.....  Who is going to play the football necessary to win a game ?  And how anyone could leave out Power from the team is beyond me !  I believe we should pick a team to pin them back at Alty.  A team can defend perfectly well with an attacking line-up, by getting back behind the ball when needed.  Donít know if Sam K or AAron J are fit, but I assume not, or Rory Mc and McF.. so, the Dilly team for Sat is..... Mair;  Barrows, Smith, Fleming, Brown;  Carey, King, Loza, Power;  Southwell, Marriott.  Iím beginning to lose faith.  Happy Xmas to all our readers...(thatís my Xmas joke !).  Just off to take my neighbourís lights down, theyíre getting on my tuts......

I always expect Refís to get a drop of mouth at The Walks.  Donít ever remember one getting through 90 minutes without any.  If the crowd arenít there, we can always rely on Clunan to give him some...... Thereís a bloke who sits near me who canít stand seeing Ďem come out of the tunnel !....

I feel we were wrong to lose Street and Nathan Fox.  I donít know why Fox slipped down the ladder so quickly.  He replaced Blake-Tracy, and did very well.  Only had one chasing last season, IMHO, and that was by the dynamic Chester right-wing nipster.  We are picking such defensive teams, including 2 midfielders most games, that there arenít enough players coming forward as a team, and therefore hardly any balls to feet or ďthroughĒ for the strikers to use.  I still feel Chorley were the best lesson weíve had this season.  The wife wants me to get the bin in.  I dunno, Iím not keen on the dark.....  Further advice available for a small fee.....
