And at £5 a head absolutely great value for money, that's of course if you don't mind watching an understudy performance, which in my opinion are usually much more fun and certainly bring a sense of anarchy to the sometimes formulaic offerings of the Bard.
If you want a cheap day out and certain entertainment couldn't recommend anything more. 10 May 2013 08:49 Started on 'Eli's' forum

Yes of course the whole side needs to function to gain success but certain areas functioning well together are critical.
The two centre-backs.
Full back and winger.
The central midfield pairing,
The two main attackers.
Of course linkmen between these pairing also are vital as Alexander Blake and Elliott used to show.
At present we're still lacking in many of these pairings and most certainly in the linkmen. Our future success will depend largely on how these partnerships and glue can be found and bonded. 05 May 2013 16:29 Started on 'Eli's' forum
Perhaps that was no great insight because three defeats and I'm sure he'd have gone,possibly even three soulless draws wouldn't have saved him.
But at the last he grasped the opportunity and experimented with that holding midfielder which has served this club so well since SC and then OC employed one.
It was not as if he hadn't tried it but he'd paid no notice to the results he'd obtained with it. Yes Edgar is no natural incumbent but the prescence of some solidity in front of our back four gives us our most attacking options a side. It has allowed McCann Paterson and Ings to blossom, and they are our three most important players.
The sad thing of course is we're about to lose two of them, and it is going to leave two massive holes to fill.
If only we hadn't wasted all that money on wingers and got these two back on our books next season might have looked quite promising.
Sadly the lack of insight into the balance of our squad that was evident in this seasons signings has now come to haunt us, unless the Board have a bit more clout and good sense than they appear at present to possess.
So SD deserves his spot in the sun, but it will be a short reprive unless he can get this squad sorted pruned and balanced, and his first two signings don't auger well in that direction.
But we will see. As for now his willingness to experiment has saved his bacon, one can only hope he's learnt that being bold has more chance of success than shielding oneself in some defensive cocoon. 05 May 2013 09:20 Started on 'Eli's' forum
