    Goal Drought Solution

    Goals seemed to have dried up completely for us these last 6 games with only 1 goal scored in all that time. But for our strong defensive performance we would already be out for the count.

    This seems to co-incide with Sam coming back into the side, first as a sub then later replacing Ashley up front. I noticed today that the ball stuck much more to Ashley than it did to Sam.

    Perhaps it is time to move Sam back to the bench and bring on somebody else to support midfield, like Freddy or Matt.

    The ball stuck better with Barnes because he's receiving diagonal balls in a wide position without an opposition player hung onto his back.

    Vokes had to contend with straight hoofs at him with a World Cup winning centre back up his arris. Meat and drink for Per.

    It does need changing though and I would be in favour of moving Barnes up top and sticking Taylor or Kightly out wide.

    Just been having this conversation. I'd replace Vokes with Taylor depending on how fit Taylor is which I imagine he isn't near to match fitness and have Barnes and Ings up top together again.

    Solution? Stick it in the net

    But yes, I posted the same on another thread. It may well be down to the quality of the opposition we've been facing. However you look at it, 1 goal in the last 6 isn't good and hopefully we're looking at it.

    Thank goodness we've got Sordell and Juke waiting in the wings - there's still hope.

    re: Goal Drought Solution

    Taylor was poor wide though and didnt have the fitness to do the job properly, not sure if there really is an ideal solution from the start, we just need to stay in games and try to knick the odd goal. Ulvestad central and Arfield back our wide is what id be tempted to do but thats just hoping that Ulvestad is good enough

    Dont worry, Sean Dyche will get some of the millions that the board have got, in the January transfer window.

    They'll have a look at what our relegation rivals are doing and strengthen in all areas of our team.

    They'll realise, its their job to give the best manager BFC have had in 40/50 years, the funds to secure a Premier League future for next season

    Oh, hang on...

    You sounded like clareturion for a minute there.

    And as for the 'best manager BFC have had in 40/50 years.' C'mon lad, behave yourself
