Fletcher doesn't track back because he's pressing up the field, once you beat the press ofc your defence is exposed. You either want them pressing up the pitch or sitting compact as a unit, you can't have it both ways.

Exactly, the team has to work as a unit. If the wide forward is pressing, the next man along should occupy the space to cover the full back. 

Will take us at least 10 games to iron out the issues

SDS, it’s Dijksteel at Rockliffe

For all those asking about these 4 players at rockcliffe just before weekend. I have done some digging appears it was bola Browne and 2 premiership loan players, sketchy with details but I believe the

I still wouldn’t put much faith in Johnson, we played Luton where he was up against players more his level, let’s not forget he was at sheff Utd most of last season and barely got a look in so he can’t really get the ‘ah but pulis’ excuse either.

With the comments about Fletcher not assisting Coulson I think that put additional pressure on Shotton, causing him to be 'caught between two stools' on occasions, in addition to not being a naturally left-sided player?

Well they didn't play wingers so he has that excuse too ? no one's saying we can hang our hat on him this season but he will be useful.

Agreed, especially the left sided point.

I mean he was on course for that with us if he was a starter and he got no real service... 

His best return at this level is 12 in a good season, I think that's about right for Hugill. He didn't get much luck or service for us and will do alright at QPR, just not the right fit for us

Agreed with most on here, Shotton was awful too weak for a big lad and passing is useless. Offload him to Birmingham, West Brom ect. I would rather play young Wood. The sooner we sign Dijksteel and another winger the better. Browne looked good when he came on and wing was class. UTB

Think we will concede a lot of goals this season from set pieces. Hopefully Dijksteel signs as he is 6”2. We only had Ayala, Shotton (?), and McNair with any decent height.

Judging by today we will concede loads from set pieces if we sign Dijksteel ?

I agree as otherwise as Luton did play a long ball down the flank to Mcmanaman and all of a sudden we're exposed as the rest of the team's pressed up the pitch.

I am hoping for 4 incomings this window as a minimum.

RB

CB

2 pacy forwards.

I dont think that is being greedy. I see mfc website have bulked out the first team squad with a few youngsters but we have a really thin squad. I am not sure if Liddle or Malley are in Woodgates thinking this season or if they can play CDM but if Clayton gets crocked or banned I think we definitely need cover there.

I hope its a really busy week for us.

    • Agreed, there must be some truth to it. I hope so anyway.
    • If only we had a king to ask🤔
    • Personally, I quite enjoyed it. Scotland played fantastically well, but then they would. I’d liken it to when a lower league team draws a premier side in the cup. If they come for their big day out and they stick to the game plan, anything can happen.  Always the same when there’s a gulf in class (though Scotland have some good players here and there these days). If anything England got off quite lightly. 
    • England were far too slow getting the ball forward, Southgate favorite Sterling came into the Euro's out of form and struggling to make the Man City 1st 11, watched him get owned by James in the cup final and Tierney last night not good enough. Rice plays DM for West Ham yet  still manages to get into the opposition box and score goals so he's obviously being told not to venture forward. Mason Mount persisted on taking the corners despite not being able to clear the 1st man and he's tracking back and putting a challenge in non existent. Kane is playing with he's back to goal most of the time he's a top striker and the midfield created absolutely nothing for him shouldn't need to be going deep. I don't rate Lyndon Dykes very highly yet he won just about every ball in the air and numerous free kicks. A good coach can see when and where its going wrong and makes the subs and tactical changes to try and put it right, Southgate just isn't good enough to do that, fits the England coaching/manager role well, nice inoffensive guy who won't criticize the team regardless of how they play says all the right things, and as done nothing at management level, he fits the profile, stick with nice guy Gareth, its one of the reasons Brian Clough never got the job and that is why we are still lunching out on 1966.
