    It's a steep learning curve Mr Warne.

    this is why i said that he (Moore) needs help up front, can not keep playing him on his own in every game when he's a target

    Ok fair enough but who would you leave out if you play another player up front with him?

    It would be disastrous to revert back to 4-4-2 until we can learn to defend properly.

    Warne needs to keep 4-3-3 as he calls it or 4-5-1 as everyone else sees it

    Be a massive blow if he's out Saturday, we would have to change our approach from the last few games and change formation because we have no other striker capable of winning ariel duels against big defenders and bringing our midfielders into play. Basically Moore being out buggers everything all the tactics what has won us the games so far.

    At the risk of being shot down in flames could we not consider playing Ajayi up front? Moore came to us as a defender/striker and why not? He's a big bugger who could hold the ball up and he seems to fancy himself as a bit of a footballer he would be safe to do it at that end of the pitch, alternative is JCH who it seems is not in favour/can't be arsed or both

    No shooting down from me mate I think it's not a bad shout,Dave Watson did we not sell him as a C/F.It would give us options to pull him back if we came under the cosh.JCH not for me we would would be playing with ten men half the game & it will be a hard game with 11 men but I fancy us at Bradfud we have a decent record up there.

    On his own? I think it be a brave man to do it. Along side Ball maybe.

    I don't think ajayi has had the training to be a striker

    Besides you don't realy need to be tall to be a striker, you just need shot accuracy, power and ball control.

    But anyway defender to striker would take months of training

    Potter on the other hand may take a few weeks to learn and he's just as tall

    Some of us talked about the Ajayi option at the match last night but I think it would be risky as his close control doesn't seem that great.
    We don't have to play with a big man up front. We could have Ball as the nominal striker as there is enough pace and threat in our side to give him adequate support.
    It would be no good putting high balls into the box but we have plenty of guile in midfield to slip clever passes in behind their defenders to give them lots of problems.
    After all, our fifth goal last night came as a result of a superb pass from Newell to Forde who then laid it across goal for Frecks to fire home at a time when Moore wasn't on the pitch.

    Good question Grist, hard to answer really
    if we play Ball upfront with him to start he can always drop into midfield if needed to, I would have said Frecks for yesterday's game (good job that didn't happen) maybe Towell

    I just think we need to use other options because it's a risk using him every game on his own, He's not superman

    It would by nice for warne it could just give him that plan (b) that we have been looking for,just hope he does not go with JCH it does not seem to work with him.

    JCH is carrying too much muscle and as a consequence he's lost some of his pace.

    Maybe though PW's comment on Moore might just be a smokescreen to keep Bradford guessing?

    Excellent idea if true.

    Got to agree with ya Grist JCH lost his pace and is too top heavy. But ya never know he may just need some time to train and get in shape. Maybe he will be back in top forum for December.

    Who knows maybe Moore will be back for the game against bra but I for one won't lose sleep over it if he's missing for one game to keep him fit for rest of matches.

    Moore has been great in the last few matches, but can I sound a note of caution? He can't be as good as he seems. He's 25 and Ipswich picked him up last December for 10,000. I reckon if he was capable of doing this and keeping it up, he'd have done it before now and he wouldn't have been available for peanuts. Really hope I'm wrong, and he's the next (taller) Jamie Vardy. We'll see.

    Towell is a strong lad with an eye for goal - worth pushing forward as a striker?
