  1. The coverage of this game was absolutely superb. Congratulations to the whole team, I can’t believe there is another team in the UK that has such well informed and professional media coverage. Well done, I can see a cascade of Pulitzer Trophies coming your way.

  2. I’m leaving another comment, because I didn’t want to detract from my first one. The 4-3-3 versus 4-4-2 debate must rage on, and yesterday’s game was a very important contribution.
    In the playoffs games last year, a crucial element was the removal of the threat of Lee Vaughan, superbly done by Johnny Hunt and again by him yesterday. In the playoffs the formation was 4-3-3 and vitally the formation won us midfield supremacy against Kiddie’s fantastic midfield pair of Storer and Jackman. Yesterday we didn’t gain that supremacy, our strikers did very well on scraps, and we saw little of Carrington as an attacking threat. In a 4-3-3 with Hunt on the left we could have kept Vaughan quiet, and also got more traction in the middle. With Anyinsah wider I think he would have found more joy.

    Mr Griffiths, what is you’re view of the formation after today’s game? and what did you more specifically mean by your comment on the squad needing refreshing?

  3. Firstly, thank you very much for your kind words! We love doing it and I hope it shows!

    As for formations, I’m confused. As I said a week ago in my match report on Hereford, I had a blockbusting post ready on how 4-4-2 wouldn’t work with the current squad, and our performance forced me to spike it. I’m starting to gain the courage to return to it after yesterday.

    I liked our energy at Hereford, but 4-4-2 does feel a little flat to me, and Malbon found space between the lines that wouldn’t exist so readily in a 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1. We’ve kept two clean sheets with a 4-4-2, which is very encouraging, but is it the solution to the fact that we’ve failed to score in four of our last five games? I’m not sure.

    In terms of refreshing the squad, Andy Morrell acknowledged the need to do that in his final press conference and there’s bound to be a big turnover in the Summer, either on the manager’s terms or the players’. Certainly, if we make a switch to 4-4-2 there are certain types of player I’d like to see come in, and inevitably a couple of players look like they probably need to make way. But I’ll tell you who in an email as I might end up chatting to them after they’ve scored five goals past Grimsby on Saturday!
