    Interesting that most people in this thread, including me, when they have included him at all, have put Tomlin in the 'hole' just behind Tammy and Duric.

    This has always seemed to me to be the ideal position for him - either that or up front alongside Tammy (not now we have Duric) - he creates panic when he takes the ball into the box and draws 2 defenders to him, creating space for the others.

    Perhaps play a diamond with Tomlin at the point and Hegelar holding?

    3 at the back makes me nervous after what happened to Cotts side when we came up

    with Cotts it was slightly different in that he didn't really have the players to do it with .. hence he leaves == 4-4-2 and heyho

    it is always look at the wider picture .. 3 good defenders ... yuuup a balanced mid field ..... yup and a couple of attackers .. yuup
    opposition has to get past the 5 ( 3-5-2 ) and if played correct it quickly becomes 4 -4 as opposite side of field player drops back . or through the middle wing backs / full backs drop back to cover the flanks 5-3-2
    Joe seems to have been given the mantle of wing full back???? .. so we need another?
    having more possession should give you more chances ...
    I think we will play along the lines of 4-3 -1 -2 / 3 -4 -1 -2 ?
