    • good luck Scotty, fingers crossed for you mate 
    • Ok so we all think we need to play Polly and to play in his most effective position which is central mid. We all agree we need to win games and our current formation of 4231 isn’t winning  is enough games We have 3 Strikers who have good ratios and it’s my view that we need to accommodate more strikers on the field of play to give us a greater chance of getting more goals and therefore winning games So if Polly and one other can’t be trusted in midfield as in you words ‘teams would play through us’ we need 3 in the middle but we also need two up top so that leaves another suggestion of playing to our strengths like Livingston do and employ a 352 Of the players available we could have McCart Donaldson and Brad who could play in a 3 central combination  Rooney who most feel is better going forward than defending on right side with Walsh on the other side  Centre 3 from Polly Welsh Chalmers Doran and Trafford  Up Top 2 from White Oakley and Austin Livi play to their strengths maybe it’s time we do too, get the two strikers starting get the ball wide get the ball into the box  and give it a go, can’t keep saying we haven’t got the strikers as the stats prove otherwise . We need wins we won’t win without goals and the players to get us goals are the strikers.  What is certainly obvious is by playing only one striker we are not winning enough games .Keeping a striker on the bench who has scored 6 goals in his last 6 starts and continue to play 5 midfielders instead of him isn’t working. A tweak is all that’s needed two up top instead of one is the change that’s required  but we need to keep Polly in the middle as on the wing he is a man down. We need to be bold recognise where we are and play to the strengths of the players we have just like Livingston Not doing them much harm is it.  
    • We'll be thinking of you Scotty. The whole Gringo clan wish you a successful outcome and hope you recover quickly enough to enjoy Christmas with your loved ones. 
    • 4-4-2 has generally meant Polly being shunted out to the right from where he struggles to impose himself. It's all very well having him in a central 2 when we're chasing a 3 goal deficit, but if we did that every week teams would play through us. Playing two holders behind him frees Polworth up to make the the forward runs from which most of our goals are created. The system already plays to his strengths, it's just that the players around him aren't good enough.
