Evening all. Today we have a few little bits of news.
SORDELL CALLED UP TO ENGLAND U21 SQUAD
Stuart Pearce obviously sees something in Marv that Owen Coyle doesn`t. But I can see why. This summer I was lucky enough to watch the Great Britain Olympic football team play at Old Trafford, and for the second half of a game against Senegal, Mr Sordell played up top on his own in a 4-5-1-cum-4-3-3 system. He did very well, which surprised me.
Marvin isn`t your average lone striker, and is certainly different to the two we have most recently implemented in SKD and N`gog. He is small and pacy, but this doesn`t affect the ability to hold the ball up in attacking areas. It does, however, mean we would have to play a different type of ball into him; one that would definitely help some of the footballing purists in the squad`s ranks.
He wouldn`t be the first of his kind as a smaller lone striker. Any doubters reading this need to look no further than what Jermaine Defoe is doing at Tottenham this year. If the tactic can allow a team to score three at Old Trafford, we should at least give it a go in the Championship. One thing is for certain; Sordell doesn`t link well with SKD. And despite Kevin`s supply of goals this year, he has often offered little else and given the likes of Mills an excuse to hoof. Maybe a change up top would allow a more expansive style of play?
FRED BARBER JOINS BURY
What a shame. The man is an incredible goalkeeping coach; and Jussi, Al Habsi and Adam Bogdan can all thank him for any success that they have had or will have in their careers. Why Coyle wanted his own men, I don`t know. Our loss is definitely Bury`s gain; it`s just unlucky that his low profile has probably been the reason he didn`t earn himself a more prestigious role.
OWEN COYLE SENDS ANGRY DVD
Give it up, Owen. Accept some of the blame!! Be a man about things. Show some decorum about your work or we will begin to lose respect as well as confidence.
