Is it time to take some risks?

Post by Ratscoot » Sun Feb 11, 2018 1:09 pm

Unlikely to get into the play offs, definitely won’t make automatic promotion this season, can’t see us getting dragged into relegation so what’s to play for?

So does By Heck give some of the squad players and/or under 23s a chance at the first team in preparation for next season - sure some of them can’t be any worse than Sacko!

What about mixing up the formation trying 3 at the back for instance from the start of a game rather than waiting until we get someone sent off?

Just a thought

He made O'Kane captain, played a winger at right back. They look like experimental moves to me. One didn't work and lets hope he learns from that and the Dallas experiment went ok...

If I were manager

BPF - Ayling - Pearce - Jansson - New CB - Alioski - Viera - Klich (c) - Hernandez - Roofe - New CF

Cooper, New Winger, Beradi, New CF - Weidwald - Saiz (if he stays) - Forshaw

3 at the back is ok if you are up to it .. mainly havin the experience centre halfs and talented midfielders to help operate the system . Were I'd say a few players short of that though.

Heck just finding his feet atm Rat, he did say he would play different formations pending on the players who are available for each game. I do think he'll stick with the nucleus of the main squad although he may try one or two youngsters when a play-off place is out of the equation

I think until thing are mathematically certain you would want to pick your strongest XI and if a youngster is good enough then they force their way in on merit.

I agree with Weasel, giving up now would be silly. As unlikely as it is that we will make the play-offs, you never know what a little run can do.

It won't happen while we are still in with a fair chance of making the play-offs and it certainly won't happen so soon after a new manager has been installed. He'll want some stability and it's too early for him to evaluate the quality of players who haven't been making the starting team regularly.
