Straight forward/simple analysis of where Harriers issues lie from last season - but nevertheless totally accurate, and I see someone else is coining the phrase 'same old' and I do wonder IF Eustace is still at the helm come the first game of the new season whether the same tactics/formation will be employed? It wasn't good enough last season against the top six clubs in NN (mostly).Trialist wrote:I'm not sure why people try and debate passing football v hoofball! You've got to have a balance in the team. You need players that can win the ball and stamp their authority on a game and you've got to have players that can pass it, have a bit more flair and win you games.
Our defensive performances this season were embarrassing at times and extremely unorganised. We lack height at the back and we haven't got anyone who can actually go and win the ball. No one takes responsibility to win the ball off corners and free kicks, hence why we concede so many in the last 10-15 minutes of games. We certainly aren't going to get promoted with our current back four. I can't say I'm a massive fan of O'Connor at centre half as he's not tall enough and doesn't win the ball. New centre half to partner Horsfall needed.
Not sure on resigning Mcquilkin! I get the feeling it's going to be same old same old in midfield with Croasdale, Weeks and Mcquilkin. I think we could do with some height in there and a fresh face.
Are we going to keep the formation from last two seasons? If Eustace stays, then I assume so. Dan Bradley has to play more centrally! I would love to just have two pacey wingers and someone up top with Ironside.
Which is why I do have strong reservations that if nothing changes - then nothing changes and Harriers will still be in NN at the end of the season, playing the 'Right Way' but still losing to Chorley ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
