THE TEAM

I know there are loads of other threads where LB's tactics are being dissected but i think its as plain as day that something is going on behind the scenes that is making his selections and substitutions so illogical. Almost universally, nobody could believe that JFC had been selected yesterday and that Williams and Morgan hadn't featured since playing so well against Ipswich - why? to me, the back four, when fi,t is famewho, innis and martsen and then gunter and mattews can be rotated - same with purrer and pearce  who can be brought in occassionally as needed - the midfield is then 1 of pratley or watson to anchor , the attacking mid can then be rotated between williams, morgan, shinnie and gilbey - the wide mids are doughty and maddison then any one or 2 of the above 4 who isn't picked as the nr.8. jfc can be used if desperate. up top chucks and smyth. the window needs 3 attacking players added - 2 centre forwards and one proper wide man - at least 2 of these need serious pace.

its not a difficult game but anybody who puts pratley, watson and jfc in the same midfield, needs to take a long hard look at themselves and sort out whatever issues they have in their head that is making them do this because it is totally irrational.

    Apart from attention seeking, why did this need a new thread. Could easily have posted this in one of the other threads discussing this.

    We don't have a team. We have a collection of players......many of which are very similar. Only proper player with pace is under 20 & currently out injured. Only proper player who can create anything is still unfit & now ill. But we have plenty of defensive players who can knock the ball sideways & backwards 10 yards.

    Too much rotation for me, I think he’s been burnt after injuries season on season and he’s trying to keep it fresh. But by doing this there is a lack of consistency and we don’t know what team is turning up each game.

    coz this specifically addresses the fact that something very illogical is going on with LB's team selections and that there must be something going on behind the scenes - to pick that midfield on saturday is not normal

    We know Bows likes Pratley and Watson. With Shinnie out, he wanted an experienced creative player instead (JFC) and he clearly rates Gilbey otherwise he wouldn’t have signed him. Then on the bench he had Morgan and Williams as impact subs if needed. In fact it was likely he was going to play Maddison in the Shinnie role but had to pick JFC as MM had rung in sick.
