    Only if it's a shite back line. Generally one centre half will compete and the other will drop 10 yards behind to cover. Added to that the 2 full backs will tuck in narrow to cover as well. If you're talking about long diagonal balls that's different but would also suggest Gallagher is playing wide rather than central.

    Takes me back to when MGP was given an assist for taking a throw in

    No. I'm just pointing out that ultimately strikers are judged on goals not headers won. I'm delighted he put himself about yesterday and was a handful in the air but he needs to hit the old onion bag once in a while too.

    All well and good but if he doesn't contribute goals he's not doing the main thing a striker is paid to do. I daresay no-one will mention how many headers he wins if we lose a couple and his drought continues...and that's before his price tag is taken into consideration.

    I think there's an awful lot being put on being 'able to adapt' to different formations. My lad plays at a reasonable under 18s standard and they seamlessly drop into 4-4-2, 4-3-3 and 3-5-2 during games when needed so I'm pretty sure full time pros have the ability to do so too. One thing is for sure, it's hardly worthy of the gushing praise I'm seeing on here.

    Be interesting to see how the next couple of games pan out now. TM like GB before him usually sees his arse when the top 6 is looming, let's hope he takes the handbrake off and goes for it this time.

    Lewis Holtby

    Now this would be an exciting signing, he's a step up from anything we currently have. If there's a chance to get him it's one we have to make happen.

    It's not fact. You said everybody thought they were good appointments, I bet 'everybody' didn't.

    Raya joins Brentford

    Raya has all of the natural attributes to be a top top keeper, what he lacks (decisiveness, distribution, command of the penalty area) can all be coached. I'm not sure our YTS keeper coach had it in him to gain that necessary extra 15% improvement.

    Things you dislike about football.

    Minutes silences before games, especially at Anfield when the kitman's dog has died. Seriously though, tragic as it was, I remember minutes silences for Ken Bigley and Ian Huntley's victims Holly and Jessica - really? At a football game?

    West Brom Away

    Just watching the highlights, what the hell is Walton doing rooted to his line as Cunningham is trying to shield it back to him? Surely he should be taking charge of that situation.

    Hull (A)

    A great win and a thoroughly enjoyable performance to watch. I thought we looked a good side.

    Downing is a class above anyone else on this pitch
