With all the frustration and unhappiness around this place, I thought it might work to get the next match thread up and running.

Assuming we all had a clean slate and drew a line under old systems, past results and so on and look to the future, it'll be interesting to pick a side for Saturday if we were in charge for the day.

It took a while for me to be sure, but I would like to see 4-4-2 :-

White Inniss Barrett Coker
Demetriou Atkinson Leonard Wordsworth
Cox Ranger

Subs : Smith Ferdinand Fortune McLaughlin McGlashan Mooney Bridge

It's a toss up between a diamond with Atkinson at the base and Wordy at the top or Atkinson and Leonard playing deeper together and Wordy and Demetriou further up. If I had to choose, I'd take the diamond.

I like the 2 x Mc's, but for the moment, I'd rather see people who can link the play and pass and move the ball around. Not saying they can't, but the other options seem better for me and we definitely need an engine in front of the back-four.

We'd need to play a tight pressing game and definitely get the ball into Cox feet early, in my view.

The Mc's would be good impact subs, alongside Fortune and we have Ferdinand as a back up if one of the centre-halves gets injured or is having a poor game.
