We have 3 tactics.

1; Play it out wide, especially from midfield with sideways passing only in their locker, 2; direct (Hoof) up to Dickinson from the back.3; Midfielders bursting through to be an extra striker (Timlin and Ferdinand).
This was paying results earlier on in the season as Dickinson was O.K.ish at holding the ball up and laying it off, the crosses from wide were finding their target, and Timlin and Ferdinand were getting into the box and finding space and scoring goals.

This is where it has gone horribly wrong. Dickinson can't now hold on to the ball, it's bouncing off him all over the place. The crosses are rubbish, with most not clearing the first defender(Criminal), or going over everyone's head. The midfielders are not backing up the strikers, and not going into the box apart from dead ball situations.

Poor Benyon must have realized very quickly that he had come to the wrong club. He thrives on balls from the midfield. That's how he mainly scored all those goals for Torquay. I can't recall him having one pass from our midfield, which has resulted in him hardly having a shot in all the time he has played for us.

Do you think that it's now time to get this team playing in a different and hopefully more entertaing way? A style that would allow the likes of Benyon to score the goals that he was brought to the club for.
