Town lose 4-2 on pens.
Paul Hurst hasn’t managed to win a competitive game yet with town. Like all games in this 4-2-3-1 formation, the striker has been isolated. Either go back to the 4-3-3 like we were against Blackburn and have the wingers cut inside and get in behind alongside the striker or have a 2 striker formation. The striker always seems to be isolated which is effecting their performance. We are lacking goals and fans are already lacking confidence in this new season. The players performances like Knudsen have been questionable and needs improving. But undoubtedly, our signings have been very average, getting no players proven from the championship even though we’ve spent more money than we did in any summer under Mick McCarthy.
Is this fault Marcus Evans for not giving enough funds as he refused for us to sign Josh Windass till Joe Garner was sold, which then he had already moved to Wigan? Or is it Hurst’s fault for his experienced lower league football and bringing them all to a higher division?
What’s all your opinions of the signings, tactics/formations, owner and manager?
