I spent the last 20 minutes of the game last minute screaming at my PC for us to get forward and carry on attacking. There was a point at 3-0 where the momentum was with us and we could easily have got a couple more but players like Watson decided to slow it down. Brownie in commentary seemed completely supportive of this approach and unaware that we still had a 3 goal deficit on Oxford who arguably have the easiest game on Saturday with Burton at home. Apparently, its only Pompey that we are worried about. Had anyone on the commentary team or indeed our midfield looked at the League Table !
442 would always be my preferred system. Apparently Nigel is a tactical genius because we put two up front in the 2nd half. I suspect every Valley Pass subscriber spent the first half shouting for a 2nd striker to stand closer to Stockley. Its completely pointless hoofing long balls up to him so he can win it ( which he does very well) and flick it on to noone. We are playing in the THIRD division, we should be winning more games at home by being more aggressive and attacking not playing with a lone striker.
Apparently Washington and Aneke both have coninuing fitness problems but still get to sit on the bench – its all very frustrating.
Anyway, at least we won and for a spell in the 2nd half we played some decent football for a change. Football produces some strange twists of fate so we can only hope that Accrington and Burton do us a favour on Saturday.
