    Hard luck tonight..

    This. Exactly this. Some people need to realise this team is still in transition. Lowe has done the first thing he needed to do and get us working for each other and become difficult to beat. We need to be patient until the goals start coming. We will see a few 1-0’s, 0-0’s and 0-1’s over the next couple of months.

    What's your team, Tourist? Not that it matters, of course, as most away fans get a friendly welcome at Gigg, apart from Bolton and Oldham obviously. The Swan and Cemetery is a good recommendation for pre match with plenty of street parking on the adjacent streets like Redvales Road. Hopefully you'll enjoy the game, new territory for us with Forest Green Rovers the visitors, should be a cracker, (Vegan obviously).

    Skarz sadly wouldn't be in our 2nd 11, and don`t think he will play in the Checker as other players need game time. Shotton, Cooney etc. Like you say the back 5 won`t alter much so only 5 outfield places up for grabs. With O`shea and Telford looking so good who do you drop? Telford with Gold looked a handful so how do we go back to 1 up top? I`m pleasantly confused.

    Barjonas Signs on Loan

    Because, as I recall, we got all giddy when Clark arrived on the recommendation of Flickers best mate at (a massive club) Rangers and we all know how that one turned out don't we. Hopefully that's where the similarity ends and this lad turns out to be "something special" but lets see him perform first eh! Oh and welcome to The Energy Check Stadium at Gigg Lane Jamie....

    I take it you are referring to 'wee Sam' 😂

    From what’s been said, it sounds as if he’ll be in competition with Styles for the deep lying playmaker role. Danns and Dawson fighting it out for the other spot. No place for Burgess it seems under Lowey!

    Oh fair enough. The little I could find seemed to place him more where Adams & Mayor have been starting for us this season. That assessment is certainly more encouraging.

    Forest Predictions

    It will be interesting as it seems different players are linked to different formations. What stays the same is the keeper defence central midfield. (Apart from the tussle for left wing back, seems Skarz has been just left)

    Looks like another clever signing, chalk and cheese compared to looney tunes last year 🤡

    Hard luck tonight..

    Lowe suggested in an early interview (I think after the Yeovil game?) that we had a squad that could "mix it up" it terms of formations. I think that's great tbh. I wasn't at the MK Dons game, but people seemed to suggest the the one up top formation worked well there & the striker got support etc. I'd much rather see two strikers too, but most of all, I want to see us win. If we have a number of options formation wise to help us do that over the course of the season when we'll face many different tactical approaches, all the better!

    My mate who's a Rangers fan says he's a deep lying midfielder - plenty of energy and tidy on the ball. Sounds like what we need and it sounds like he's impressed in training. Sadly pushes Scotty Burgess down the pecking order who I was hoping to get a chance this season.

    The thing last night showed more than anything was that 532 is by far our best option in formations lots of time on the ball for everyone looked solid at the back.

    Barjonas Signs on Loan

    He has been down training with us before sealing the loan so seems like we are doing things better!
  18. QWERTYOP

    Hard luck tonight..

    Interesting. I thought that's where he did best (relatively speaking!!) for us last season. We appear to not be exactly short of attacking options!

    Barjonas Signs on Loan

    Indeed, but I like to think that we don't employ the kind of managers these days who sign players without watching them as Flitcroft did then.

    More as a second striker really.

    Right so what relevance does it have to the current Rangers signing.

    Barjonas Signs on Loan

    Yes that's why I said THE THEN Rangers manager!

    Or dare we say it, the same Bury manager!

    You are aware it’s not the same Rangers manager now aren’t you.

    Barjonas Signs on Loan

    Didn't Nicky Clarke come highly recommended by the then Rangers manager? Just sayin'. Sorry!

    Barjonas Signs on Loan

    I wouldn't be 100% sure. The little info I can find on this guy has him down as an attacking midfielder rather than a ball winning midfielder type. Which I hope is wrong. If accurate though, the Swindon player seems more like the type we need IMO.
