Thread: 3-5-2?

  1. #1

    3-5-2?

    After failing to get a RB ysterday, just wondering if 3-5-2 might suit us better now...

    We could play Bartley, Hegazi and Dawson (If fit) in the back 3.
    Gibbs and Phillips wing backs.
    Brunt and Field (If fit) as central midfielders
    With Barnes as attacking midfielder behind Jrod and Gayle.

    Could easily swap Nyom with Barnes and put Phillips as the attacking CM if needed too.

    That would give us more legs in the middle. Right now, having Brunt and Livermore in there is killing us. I wouldn't drop Brunt though because of his set pieces and he can be a threat going forward. If you have runners around him, we could accommodate him in the middle.

    Just think this might suit us more than a rigid 4-4-2 where we've been outrun and outworked in midfield for the first two games..

    Please god no.

    Stick to a back four but make Brunt LB as itís now his best position and he does a better job there than Gibbs.

    I want to see Sam Field in our midfield as well.

    Why not sign Crainie for 12months. He's a natural right back and has been with us all summer.

    Is Sam Field injured?

    Agreed, we need Field

    and we shouldnt play our best attacker (Phillips) at wing back

    I would agree with this! Brunt in the middle is about as useful as a virgin in Lye! Like to see Field get some game time as not convinced about Morrison or Jake the England International! Gayle MUST start.

    I think this is DMs biggest challenge at the moment what is our best 11 and what formation suits them best.

    Gayle for me is a certainty up from but how do we support him with the players we have. Joy R works hard and Phillips has the skill and physique to dominate championship defenders but doesn’t do that enough. Neither is the perfect foil to get the best out of Gayle.

    After that where is the creativity in midfield. Can’t see much myself. Plenty of options but little standouts for me and that is a great worry. We need goals to get out of this division and with little creativity in midfield and only Gayle looking like he has the potential for 20 goals in a season it doesn’t look promising offensively.

    Defensively we look mighty vulnerable down the right back channel and surely we must improve that pretty quickly. Of the options we have a think Dawson is best but he is surely better at centre half than full back.

    All in all the signs are not great and I think that unless we get some great loan signings it looks like a long and potentially mid table season to me.

    I'm sure I read that DM is looking to loan Sam Field out and that he doesn't rate him.
    It may have been a dream

    Well, it's obvious DM has **** for brains ( nice guy though ) but hmmm - Brunt in the middle and loaning out Sam Field! Do me a favor!

    Personally I like to see the 3 at the back setup as its more progressive.
    Iíve got DM down as a die hard 442 man though
    Iíd like to be proved wrong

    Would be great to see this. Chadli pretty much played wingback for Belgium at times. We would be even more frightening going forward!

    The only place I want to see Chadli is in Besiktasís treatment room.

    The only ďfrighteningĒ thing about this p once of a bellend is the amount of money he steals from us in a wage.

    As for Belgium.....he was their weakest link.

    Absolute knob jockey of a professional ....an embarrassment to himself!

    So you would rather have Livermore & Brunt than Field & Chadli Mick?
    Fair enough, I wouldn't.

    Looks good Bomber.....Just Chadli I still see as a weak link mentally. Cant be arsed for us, but probably more so with a club with ambition and not stuck in a slog it out championship.
