Little positive to say, Mellor and Riley had decent games. The rest 5 or 6.
One of Crawley's centre halves was playing his first game back for 18 months, one returning from injury, the first goal scorer can't play 90 minutes and they had only 6 subs on the bench. Just not good enough to lose.
Tactics- last season 433 got us into the promotion places, then teams learnt how to play against it, and we plummeted down the table. Changing it at half time is too late, we need a variant.
Alessandra- model professional, does what is asked of him, trains hard, but we have better players. This crazy notion that he is a top defensive forward that will keep play in the oppositions half was disproved 18 months ago but still we persist with it. Abrahams Wanted to play centre forward at Newport and Orient where he wasn't allowed. Like Alessandra, model pro, runs miles, just not in the right direction at the right time. We were completely toothless up front for the whole first half despite Beech again trying to big him up.
Young, couple of very good turns to get shots off in the box. Please let him start
Gibson Great runs, covered back and professional foul when Crawley were on the break Clough Provided some enthusiasm and energy up front where he buzzed around and played several decent passes
MoM Mrs Mellish who as well as being cute as a button proved she has brains by giving Tim a roasting on Facebook for slagging off her husband. Best attacking moves of the day by a mile.
