Burnley are a great example of playing to your strengths. If we adopted the same tactical philosophy as them, get it wide, get in the box early, get midfielders suppirting, I think we'd be higher up the league.

 

Irs getting to the point where we need wins. Playing one up top and packing the midfield isn't winning us games. At some point soon we need to adopt a more attacking approach.

We got the ball into the box a lot more than Burnley did yesterday. If we had a striker like they have we'd be mid table.

Aye Grey in for Heskey/Madine yesterday we'd have tatered em.

 

Heskey will always give you his all but nowadays his all isn't all that much.

and madine is bog average and always has been.

Don't think 190+ apparenaces was pitfull to be honest.

 

He was alright was deano. Not the glamour signing it was meant to be admittedly.

He didn't score the goals to keep us up first time round but he more than did his bit to get us back up and stay up so aye far from pitiful

About 4 times in the first half gonzo, his overall play is good and as I said before the critique, I like the lad, but just has this habit of wandering offside, saying that, he was our best player I just annoyed me as he was in some good positions on those occaisions

According to the bbc he was offside twice in the whole game

This game just shows the difference between top and bottom and s big money striker.  We were superb for our position and they were decidedly average.  Yet 2 moments from a good player have changed the game.

 

As pointed out, a half decent striker for us would have made the difference this year (eg Alf) and that short sightedness of not putting a few extra quid out there will cost us Championship status.

 

What been proven all year is that the overall quality in the division is at best average.  But mistakes week in, week out have cost us.

 

Looking at the division 1 table on the way home, shows a lot of local trips.

 

Every cloud.....................

surely years of spending money we don't have has got us the position we're now in financially.

 

we might be further up the table but would be in just as much shit off it and so heading down after administration anyway.

 

whether lennon should have spend the money/wages spent on Prince, Pisano, Casado and Wilson (you could possibly chuck in heskey + Ameobi too) on a striker is a different argument

Agreed, even if you look at how much we pay Madine.  There are a number of Lennon loan deals that will be on a few bob - think he just backed the wrong ones

Infact, looking at their line up, none of our players would get in the burnley team.

Id even take kightly off their bench and stick him in our team

 

well no, we're going down and they may well go up, says a lot

 

if the roles were reversed and, for example, grey had scored 4 this season with them in the bottom 3, he wouldn't be getting in a side in the top 2

 

Clough would get in though, obvs

Wasn't their strict 15k pw wage limit when they got to the Premier League a major reason why OC jumped ship?

 

No doubt they inserted clauses to reduce salary in the event of relegation why we didn't must be the biggest dropped bollock of all time shockingly poor management and that is now catching up with us.

Id say the biggest bollock drop was to continue offering contracts to players, when we knew we wouldnt have any parachute payment to cover it

 

We might be in the conference and still paying amos £16k a week or whatever he is on.
