Lots of bodies on the line yesterday and a goalkeeper who looks like a goal keeper helps

Yep... that stat  is brilliant... promotion indicator.

I could guess that if we had this keeper last season we might have stayed up. Matthews is good at RB..James at LB is giving it his best shot but I reckon we have a couple of others better.

Baldwin I reckon is one of the best CBs we have had for a while (I would make him captain).  When Flanagan took a knock yesterday and Ozturk started to warm up there was a few gulps around me. When Loovens is fit he is very strong in the air which helps in particular with set pieces. As the present two  get bullied a bit from bigger stronger players.

If Catts and Power are in front of the back four that is a big plus defensively. Imho the wingers should help out the defence more, although I might make an exception for McGeady as he is a menace in our third of a pitch as much ad he is a menace in the final third to the opposition.

The better team defend ad a whole team and attack as a whole team. For instance better distribution from the keeper would mean pressure would not come straight back onto us.
