Re: assessment by Tommy Wooton

The team collectively were poor tonight, with average performances at best. The style of football we are playing far too often is also poor. The persistent use of the long, high ball makes it look like we have lost the ability to pass a ball successfully along the ground and are relinquishing responsibility for the ball by just kicking it up and away. Training this week should concentrate on pass and move - get back to basics. I’ve lost count how many times a goal kick comes straight back, the midfielders are chasing back and forth, leaving big gaps in the middle, and it is so predictable that teams negate Walshaw by sandwiching him between two players and so we are getting involved in melees. Just a personal observation - I prefer to see Valentine play the more defensive role in midfield and Cadman to play further up in order to maximise their strengths. However, tonight is probably best put to bed and let’s move on hopefully to better things!
