Let’s Drop Three At The Back And Move On

Last Saturday’s game against Ayr United was, inevitably, an odd affair, but surprisingly enjoyable nonetheless. It might turn out to be much more significant than you’d expect, too, if it leads to the definitive ditching of our three-at-the-back experiment. In my first column of the season I admitted that I wasn’t keen on the 3-4-2-1 formation we trialed extensively throughout pre-season, and watching us start … Continue reading Let’s Drop Three At The Back And Move On

Withdrawn Roles

I misled everyone before the game on Tuesday, but my enthusiasm in announcing the wrong thing was indicative of how much I wanted it to happen. Upon seeing the team sheet, I noted that Akil Wright had replaced Devonte Redmond and leapt to the incorrect conclusion that we’d switched from 4-2-3-1 to 4-3-3, with Wright anchoring the midfield. It was about five minutes into the … Continue reading Withdrawn Roles
