Back four

Post by Zook » 04 Sep 2018, 00:24

Needs addressing in January... Ozturk, love especially are wild, far too unpredictable but especially positionaly vulnerable to the system Ross has adapted... Donald Love is careless in possession and his passing ability is poor.... Ozturk.... He seems as though he would be better suited as a sweeper as pace even at this level is certainly an issue... We are great going forward but are vulnerable again at the back with really only Baldwin looking comfortable. I fear this might (without panicking) scupper promotion if its not addressed... I know early days though.

Being vulnerable at the back is a nasty thing in the Premier League, we just would be humiliated every week with this defence. However, we are where we are and as long as we get up the field and score it balances out in this league. Saying that, we all know that you build a team up from the back. Jack Ross has tried but this back four are not good enough. To think we have to wait until January as well :?

I agree about Ozturk.
The back four can be shocking at times.
I am surprised we haven't been punished badly yet.


What was that you said again?

Our defence is a little slack but as long as we score more than the other teams I will be happy.
