I like the idea of Roberts and Tav supporting a striker and think its worth trying out for a few games. Im hoping we are capable of a convincing win where we score more than 2 goals. I fancy Britt to get his first of the season on Tuesday.
Howson can keep his hair longer. Embrace the length before age steals that opportunity from you. It makes him look like a smart price George with it longer as well.
Its a good drawing you did although my initial thoughts was it was Billy Ashcroft.
Much prefer him right of a back 3 than a traditional fullback; not sure he quite has it technically high up the field. Having said that, he’s the best right back at the club, so, if we’re playing 4 at the back I prefer him to Spence.
The only decent side they've played is Watford really, where they got a good three points to be fair to them. They've played Wycombe, Rotherham, Derby, Barnsley, us and Cardiff. How many points would we be aiming for from that lot? Say at least 13 points from the other 6 games, so as not to include ourselves, as opposed to 19 from the 7? Their win at Cardiff would look more impressive if I hadn't just seen where Cardiff are at the moment, and they look a lot like us to be honest - reasonably well organised but with next to no attacking threat. We can be right in the mix if we can win more games so the next two in particular are big in that regard. Two wins required to turn this start into a good one.
I remember when we had a 'brilliant squad', it didn't quite play like it though. On paper means nothing, they don't look like a brilliant side at the moment so I don't believe we did do really well to get a draw with them. It was a lousy game of football with a deserved result overall. I sincerely hope that isn't the template for what direction we are aiming for.
