Can Ollie Palmer Be Our Creative Solution?

Phil Parkinson illustrated on Tuesday that a little lateral thinking can work wonders.  As everyone obsessed over our need for more creativity from midfield, the win over Grimsby suggested that Parkinson had come up with a solution by looking at the question from a different direction.   Rather than look for midfield invention, he’s simply shifted the onus to other parts of the pitch. Before going … Continue reading Can Ollie Palmer Be Our Creative Solution?

The Battle of Eastleigh

In November 1955, a packed Racecourse hosted the most notorious game in its long history. On Tuesday, behind closed doors, we staged a remake.

It certainly wasn’t the clichéd “handbags” that sexist commentators like to describe with a blithe lack of awareness. It brought back memories of that brutal Welsh international, played 66 years … Continue reading The Battle of Eastleigh

3-5-2 Starts To Add Up

Last Saturday was an interesting glimpse into the evolution of the 3-5-2 Dean Keates has reverted to. There were some interesting alterations, some forced to an extent by injury, which made the new formation look more fluent than it had done previously. The combination of Adi Yussuf and Jordan Ponticelli up front was a revelation. This was the first time they started together in the … Continue reading 3-5-2 Starts To Add Up

Davies and Jarvis Benefit from the Power of Three

Last Saturday wasn’t great. Losing to a lower division team on penalties with a heavily-rotated team isn’t all that of a shock: it’s not as if the FA Trophy was ever a priority, after all. However, we have enough squad depth to be able to make 9 changes from the previous game and still come through. Still, there were things to learn from the game. … Continue reading Davies and Jarvis Benefit from the Power of Three
