Harris starts slow, conservative, shape seems to be everything to him, he defends the middle of the park with his life, no penetration through the middle. Fullbacks and wingers it seems. Bacuna can press, and ralls, even pack can get involved in the final third, they're not brilliant, but certainly not shit at this level. When we decide to play a little higher players like Moore and Wilson become more effective and our wide players can become more narrow.
    I agree he is risk averse. I was clumsily trying to say that with a bit less caution in the first 20 we seem to have a record of looking after leads. But not with that formation. Harry Wilson needs to be in central left or right midfield positions not isolated on the wing.

    This team are ponderous in possession, play with no pace and spend most of the time passing the ball around in the middle third. If this is a tactic to draw teams out it clearly doesnít work and bores me to tears.
    I hate the new offside law. Parrott is offside, goes towards the ball and he's interfering with play.

    Wilson definitely needs to play central.

    Moore - Wilson - Ralls - Morrison - Smithies is the spine. Build the team around it.

    I actually thought that it was good play (on their part) in that Parrott purposely left the ball for the player running onto it (so a bit like a dummy, but as you say he influenced the move) and poor play by our defenders to stop for the offside.

    Is that part of the new interpretation of the offside law (I thought that it only affected VAR games where they let the game play on for 29 mins before blowing)? Iím not sure that it is. But someone on here will correct me Iím sure! 👍

    I haven't a clue, but what I do know is that our defence is looking distinctly shaky, something that we are not used to.

    Smithies

    Bacuna Morrison Benkovic Bennett

    Ralls Pack

    Ojo Wilson Murphy

    Moore

    I'd quite like to see that (JOT back in when fit obviously), Harris has been far too conservative so far this season. We have the talent to punish teams (as is evidenced by our regular onslaught in the last 20 or so minutes), he needs to take the shackles off or it'll cost him his job

    I was thinking of the goal that Everton scored at NP in the FA Cup which to this day Iím convinced was off side 🙄

    I think it's time for Benkovic to step in. Perhaps push Nelson out to right-back and let Bacuna return to midfield at the expense of the pedestrian Pack (who can often start brightly enough, but almost completely fades away by the second-half).

    Yesterday, I decided to make a start in thinning out assorted clothes and junk in what is euphemistically called a third bedroom and I came across some old City programmes, the one on the top of the pile being City v Millwall, dated 22nd August 1970.

    The cover price was a round shilling (5p to the whippersnappers on here)

    There are ads in it advertising the sale of new houses in Caerphilly, Newport and Swansea - all for less than £4,000

    The 'Football League Review' insert refers to the 'first piece of football sponsorship' i.e. 'The Watney Cup'

    The Review also states that only 12 of the Football League's clubs made a profit 'last year'

    and last but not least.....

    The programme's main editorial is by City's Chairman, Fred Dewey, who 'has made it clear he is in favour of the birch being brought back for the use against football hooligans'.
