  1. DG doesn't like to reveal too much (the next opponent might find out we're going to do exactly the same thing as we did last time).
  2. Do you think we would have won that game without the sending off? At the moment he has a slight weakness. As a massive Brown fan (who wanted him to stay), I'd say Lucas' confidence in commanding his area makes up for his 'going walkabout'. It's certainly an easier thing to fix and will cost fewer goals.
  3. I'd love us to go 4-3-3. Covolan Cass Smith Martin Jones Pett Walker Garrity/Conlon Wozza Wilson Rodney The big thing for me is having energy high up the pitch. When we've done that before, we've shaken FGR. Rodney and Woz terrified them at times. I'd stick with Wilson for now. Our biggest hope of getting the goals we need is him finding some form. Askey went through a phase of chopping and changing forwards and it didn't help any of them.
  4. Carlisle are not a good side. There's a bold, absolutist proclamation for you.
  5. I must say, having been very sceptical of DC's approach, I think we could have a serious chance this year, based on what I've seen so far. I can't see any real dud signings. Feels like we just need a couple of goals to get us going. The only thing that's missing for me is an identity. We've got a lot of versatility now, but a settled side and formation is important. I think DC is still trying to figure it out. Personally, I like the 433 given the personnel we have. Jones and Pett have been absolute stand outs and two great bits of business. With good full backs, Legge and Smith are still our best combo IMO.
  6. This looks an amazing signing. Flitcroft knows him well. He was on Soccer AM's "You know the drill" a few years back and looked incredible. Hopefully the injury hasn't set him back. I wonder if this might see us play 442 a bit more often.
  7. I think we might have spent our 'experienced striker' budget now. Playing a patient game is a wise move by DC. A top-end prem youngster on loan or a non-league goal machine would be a decent result. I just don't see the value in another 'experienced' 1-in-6 league striker.
  8. On reflection, I think you're right. We must be better at RB, as Mills was dreadful. LB too as Fitz was also dreadful.
  9. We still need a little more quality for me, if we want to challenge. Obviously, my opinion might change once we've played more games (speculation is the nature of this thread, after all). Compared to last season I'd say we're: Goalkeeper - Similar last year Defence - A little stronger than last year (I worry about Legge having to play too many games) Midfield - Much stronger than last year (Walker is the signing of the window in my eyes) Forwards - Similar to last year A lot depends on how Wilson goes. Like other posters, I think DC will look for a young striker (I like the look of Bailey as 4/5th striker), but we're low on proven goals. For that reason, I really hope DC doesn't want Wozza at wing back all year. The extra work takes its toll on him and he's out best source of chances. The sooner we can pack off Whitehead and Robinson, the better.
  10. The buzzword bingo is what I'm talking about. I don't trust it at work and I don't trust it in football.
  11. It's ok. You didn't need to. Deliberately misrepresenting the views of others just to reinforce your point is so poor, especially when I was positive about the signing in many ways.
  12. Had a chance to Google what a "definitive statement" is yet?
  13. No we don't. I said "I personally think..." In the same post as saying he's a decent signing. Get a grip.
