Does the absence of Patten, Dobbo and Antoine really affect the balance of the team?
Is it that the 4-5-1 formation just doesn't do it for us?
Are we lacking the killer instinct in front of goal to take a shot more than ten yards from goal?
Have we found our level and now the league is half-way through and starting to level out, we are exactly where we deserve to be?
Answers on a postcard addressed to John Batch, cause I'm sure he'd love to know himself.
For what it's worth, personally I think it's the formation. You put in the best players for each position, you don't adapt the formation to fit in your favourite players. However, yes we do really need Dobbo, Patten and Antoine back fast.
