Whilst we deal with lots of stuff well at the back, the more opportunities we give a team the more chance they'll score.
Evans ethos is to pressure high and stop teams getting at us, but when we leave so much space out wide we're asking too much of the wide diamond positions and full backs.
The diamond helps compact and shut out a midfield, but in L2 teams dont play through the middle.
I'm hoping that now we have a solid defensive midfielder we can play a proper 442 with at least one of our wide men staying wide and stretching teams.
Who's the solid defensive midfielder ?
Good point. We don't seem to have one. The guy Bostwick who played for Lincoln on Tuesday, looks the part. I'm surprised we didn't sign him.
