Dec/Jan is massive for us. If we lose a lot of those games yes we're in massive trouble. Win quite a few of them (which I still believe we can do - last night MR arguably played into Brum's hands making sure we were tight at the back rather than letting our attacking instincts to the fore and I think we lost more than we gained from the switch) and we're more than capable of staying up.I just cannot see where the next 3 points is coming from. As said in the match thread, we're slowly drowning and getting cut adrift from those above us. 12 games in that's massive alarm bells surely?
I expect MR to continue with this new system as we kept a clean sheet and two up top saw us under pressure, and i don't mind that so much against the stronger teams. But against 'smaller' teams we have to back ourselves to compete and score. Hopefully when Godden returns he'll be eager to try Godden and Walker together.
MR usually stumbles upon a system that works for us - hopefully he'll do it again.
