Stuart Posted April 12, 2009 Share Posted April 12, 2009 Plenty of criticisms there Chris, and plenty of em valid too. The hand of cards at Sam's disposal are not good. BUT given the predicament that we are in, given injuries to key players that we have, given the poor quality squad members like Mokoena, Treacy and andrews that we are having to play (and none of whom are likely to play Prem football when they leave BRFC,) given the fact that Tugay is having to play at God knows what age and that we are playing a couple of walking wounded, and given the run in that we have.......... so imagine that you were in Sam Allardyce's position ....... what solutions would you offer, what team would you have put out and in what formation? Rem criticising is the easy bit, finding answers is much more difficult. btw "Abbey, McClarky, Somerset Rover, Tris, LD Rover, Darrell H and RevidgeBlue" are all free to join in. Hope you don't mind Theno but this is a very good point and I think it merits separate discussion - both from the match thread and from the rather more general Sam Allardyce thread. If you were Sam Allardyce, how would you approach the final few games of the season, in particular tactics and team selections both home and away. Open question. For me, although disappointed with the performance yesterday, the team selection was hardly likely to be improved upon save perhaps using Diouf. Having said that I can understand why he might be rested: We have one single goal between now and May 24th - SURVIVAL, at all costs. However ugly or unprincipled...
