if we add 3 quality players in the right positions it improves the whole team, adding 5 would disrupt it - though there isn't much to disrupt.

No. 5 would be great. New LB, CB, RW, LW and ST. It would be perfect.

Itll be bonkers to not sign any like

Forced into a new formation because of garbage recruitment so instead of fixing the problems we'd accentuate them, fill the squad with wing backs and no full backs/wingers for the next manager even though our current one, in an ideal world, wouldn't play wing backs 🤯

It's a choice, you can't blame recruitment this summer when we haven't even been linked with a winger. This is a choice, clearly

it would, but the club have to be able to afford 5 of good enough quality.

Because we need at least 5 sihnings not 2-3. If either Blackwell or Warnock think that is going to sort our problems, then they are both deluded. I understand it might be down to the lack of money but its a fact.

Isn't it just as delusional to think we are going to get 5 in?

I’ve seen the wing back system played well, Chelsea being the main example. When you watched that team Alonso and Moses were causing problems for 90 minutes, our wingbacks simply aren’t good enough to make the system effective.

I mean this is a problem. But not the biggest problem looking at the first couple of games. The problem is the mentality. 352 can be very attractive to watch but our manager doesn't know how to make that happen regardless of how good the wingbacks are. I dont like Johnson but he's not exactly being given a chance being asked to provide our width when his starting position is deep and our passing style is long diagonals into the channel. The man isn't the flash, he can't make up 60 yards in 3 seconds.

I never said I thought we would. I said that is what we needed.

Maybe not. But it wouldn’t disrupt anything. It would just make us a lot stronger. Unfortunately we are shambles behind the scenes so it won’t happen.

Flipside of the doom and gloom is, if you assume Akpom comes in, Warnock clearly has a guy in mind to loan as the last striker he's gave us attributes and age profile on him then there's still some fringe Prem CBs on low wages like Nat Phillips available that's 3 spots right there.

Then hopefully a creative midfielder from somewhere we'd have 4 in then we all have to pray we have 2 wingbacks in the club already that can step up.

Got to be the most average player I’ve heard a manager constantly talk up. 
 

Get the style right, Spence & Coulson are promising attacking wing backs.

There's hardly any point in a manager or assistant manager saying they need 5 in, knowing fine well they will get 2-3 at most. They gain nothing but annoyed fans and a squad who have been told they're not good enough

I wonder what the goals and assists are for our wing backs since Warnock came in?

Johnson gets such a hard time on here.

    • But Is it coincidence we look a better team when it's not been tweeked  all the time 
    • We got 3 points by weathering a onslaught over the last 20 mins. It’s not the way I would like to win games but it’s winning, horrible yes, but winning.  I think the team is now tougher even fitter but still goal shy and a small sized squad. We needed a couple more players and it shows and other teams know we are a bit of a bark without the bite  I think NW is over cautious as we seen yesterday but he knows his players and there condition and he took 3 points against another inform team, now who would have put money on that?    Im not getting carried away the football to watch is dire and it’s very early in the season, and who is to say the teams at the top we played will sustain there status. I think we tend to agree the league will start to reveal itself in 10 to 15 games and we will know much more about our club and the players. conclusion.  i fear the squad is to small, we lack goals and the football is hard to swallow...  UTB.  
    • Agree with this. Great to see a solid look about the team
    • Puzzle results: Thanks to those who took part in the great match day puzzle-athon The wordsearch answers were: AKPOM, ASHTONGATE, BAUSOR, BOLA, DEANHOLDEN, REDFACTION, SESSEGNON, TAVERNIER, WARNOCK The crossword answers were: 1. Robins, 2. Cotterill, 3. Lansdown, 4. Robson, 5. Coulson The spot the ball was in grid M2!.  No-one guessed the spot the ball correctly, but as @Brunners was the first to get the wordsearch and crossword answers correct, I name him the winner! Honorary mentions to @RiseAgainst and @AnglianRed for valiant efforts.
    • I love the team being tough to break down again. We were the better team last night anyway, but I've missed it.
