The very same thought crossed my mind. We've had at least one decent frontman all season. Presently we have enough fire-power to sink a battleship, yet through-out we seem to muster two or three half chances per game.
Something is clearly fundamentally flawed. Our SJP form is pathetic, we have struggled every week to gain any passing and movement of the ball of any purpose. Last Saturday reminded me of dark days at Earlesmead, I thought we had gone backwards. The players themselves have remained upbeat but they themselves have to question the outcome. On that front, I think they deserve a huge compliment.
Other teams play one-two's and neat little triangles around us and it creates havoc. With our fire-power I would prefer a traditional two man partnership, then I think about a conventional 4-4-2 and my head explodes. I genuinely don't think we have the right type of players. Ironically, the approach which many slated last week, may well be the solution in the conditions you would envisage Saturday.
I think it's a fascinating game Saturday - we could win or lose 4-0 and I still don't know if we would be any the wiser.
Just get a result - give us something to work with.
