Our biggest problem is that our game plan consists of:
A) Pickford launches it to the lone striker. [Go to #1]
B) Rolls it out to one of the CB [Go to #2]
C) Rolls it out to a FB [Go to #3]
#1: Lone Striker fails to win the ball, or has insufficient support to maintain possesion. Revert to defending.
#2: Ball is hoofed forward [Go to 1], played to a full back[Go to 3] or played into midfield[Go to 5]
#3: If FB is Kenny [Go to 4], if FB is Martina play is stopped and ball is played back to CB [Go to 2] or into CM [Go to 5]
#4: Ball is lofted Neville-esque chip down the line losing possession.
#5: If first time on this point then [Go to 2]. If second [Go to 3]. If third[Go to 6]
#6: Ball held too long and possession is lost.
And this is repeated 20 times a game, when what we need is an option #7.
#7: Midfielder turns with ball and carries it 40 yards forward.
Until we get either a LB who can carry the balk and take players on on the outside (Using, you know, their left foot) or a midfielder who can do this then we're fucked. Once we do get one or both of these players in then the whole team dynamic should change.
