Healy for Joyce and Liddle for Raynes. No need for any defender's or defensive midfielders.

If Asamoah starts i won't be going, I'd maybe be tempted to put Devitt in against his former club

Theres people with some bloody strange ideas on here theres only really one position that needs sorting thats Joneses then we can go back to how we were if you want to drop Brisley then its Ellis or Gillesphry and if its going to be the later then get it done and get somebody in now at full back either from within or get someone signed asap.

Myself i have a list of 8 and if anybody wanted to take any of them i.d let them go as none of them have been anywhere near the roaring sucsess that it was hoped theyd be and if getting rid of some of them meant Keithy got a second chance to get it right this time then lets do it

Devit
Miller
Lambe
Atkinson
Penn
McKee
Assamoah
Brough

and obviously McQueen and Wright who were clearly only signed to make up the numbers over the holiday period surely there must be some idiots we could offload some of them to and if we need numbers i.d get the lads from the youths whove been travelling recently in to make the numbers up and put what youd save on those two to pay somone like Liddle.

But what weve got to stop doing is counting on Jones and Grainger being back anytime soon when clearly thats not going to happen i,d rather just see it as a bonus if either of them played again this season.

Would definitely keep Mckee myself, think there's a decent player there when he's fit and given the opportunity.
Agree with rest on the list...hardly set the world on fire??

Tend to agree but (speculation alert because i've no inside knowledge!) i'd be surprised if Devitt and Miller are on top wages, they weren't at Morecambe and doubt they'll have needed much persuading to come up here. On the other hand, i'd guess Jabo is probably on a good wedge and escapes so much criticism at times - his finishing is average at best.

If wages are the issue, i'd rather ship Jabo and keep the two from morecambe, think there's some real potential in them somewhere.

Jabo will be gone in the summer anyway and i doubt he.ll want to be rushed into a deal somewhere at this point and if you got rid youd only have to repace him or are you proposing playing one of the Morecambe duo up there ?

But say Jabo was gone Wyke was injured/suspended would you be happy with either of them as as the main/lone striker ? Coz i certainly wouldnt and the fact that neither off them has managed to make a position his own says it all for me and as a Morcambe fan said to me in the summer " neither of them is as good as they each think they are. "

No doubt it would leave us short of cover but by the same token if we released many of the 8 on your list we'd be equally short - issue of having a thin squad and no coin to spend!

Clearly it's not an acceptable permanent solution but Miller looked lively on his own up front at Doncaster.

Won't be many young footballers who don't think they are God's gift, especially when you're in a town like Morecambe.

I didnt mention releasing anybody other than Assamoah Wright or McQueen i said if anyone came in for any of those 8 i.d let them go and then replace them with someone else so no reduction in numbers and as they arent getting ant pitch time you could release 2 or those 3 and add the two youth players into the mix keeping numbers the same but freeing up a chunk of cash to fund someone like Liddle

Not sure what you meant about the SOH though Seesaw ?

In hindsight I think it was a waste of time re-signing Asamoah on the basis that he was rarely used and would have been better to fill the bench with Salkeld or Holt but maybe Asamoah was playing for peanuts to keep himself fit and was a better option.

What's surprised me as much as anything is the cry for us to return to 3-5-2. When we used this last season we conceded even more than we are doing now. I think it's more a sign of how badly gillesphey has faired at LB. I accept that it isn't his natural position, but I think it's time he rolled his sleeves up and realised in the real world you can't always pick and choose where you play, it's not kids football anymore. The thing that frustrates me with this lad is his lack of urgency and his demenior. At times he mopes around the pitch as though he doesn't want to be there! It's time he shows a bit of fight and shows us the ability we all know he has.

My team would be

Gillespie
Miller Raynes Ellis gillesphey (last chance)
Devitt Kennedy Joyce Adams
Miller wyke

Big danger for us will be Ellison up against Gillesphey, however defensively Ellison offers nothing so hopefully Adams can exploit this.

We've had far colder weather and far worse conditions and still managed to get a match on, so I'm quite confident.

For me I think our best formation is 451. Curle at home seems to switch to this when we are getting beat or under the cosh. Early on in the season he got slated for playing one striker at home and said he wanted to go more attacking. So 442 has been used a lot more.

I just think were a bit light in midfield when we play 442. No space and ends up with hoof ball up top.

Having that extra man in midfield we play better football on the ground imo and allows Lambe/Adams when playing to switch and come inside at their will and thats when we really hurt teams going forward.

I prefer 4-5-1, I wouldn't be against the possibility of putting Miller out left/right in a very fluid 3 behind Wyke, Which could change to a simple 442 at any point.

Joyce Kennedy
Adams Devitt Miller
Wyke

I'd be more worried about the surrounding areas being safe and accessible than the pitch being playable.

Are you referring to Botcherby? :)

I'd go with Crunch's team but I think Keith will go with LLG's. Why he'd want to stick with a defence just not performing I don't know, but think he will.

That looks about right.

McQueen was mostly a left back at Tottenham apparently. Not sure about Liddle.

I think Curle may play Liddle in front of Brisley and Raynes with Joyce and Kennedy in front of him..

I think The Archer might have inside knowledge.

Can't keep blaming the back four all the time, since Jones has been injured we have missed that little bit of protection, so not really bothered where GL starts.

Also we score shit loads of goals and as a result we let more in, same as Liverpool to a degree.

We could shut up shop completely with the players we have but would not be as entertaining.

You can. You can also say they weren't quite as shit with Jones playing in front of them but they were still fairly shit then ;)

Even the best defences struggle when they don't have the support in front of them cutting out attacks where they begin. Stands to reason that if attacks are constantly getting through they are going to concede.

Unfortunately the only replacements we have for Jones are more attacking minded players, who don't offer the same protection he can.

Strange that when people refer to our defence they never include Gillespie in that. Regardless of how many goals we concede he's never called into question.

Well KC has decided enough is enough and the defence has been thoroughly dismantled. Interesting times ahead!
