    4-4-2, when will McLeish get it right?

    I simply cannot understand Alex McLeish, why can't he just start O'Connor & Chuco in a 4-4-2 formation from the start?
    he always tinkers when he is in trouble & it usually bacfires like today!

    resorting to a 3-4-3 was suicidal, sure we got an equaliser, but we were always likely to conceed!

    to have most the posession and then send in high ball after high ball for a 5ft 5" striker to try to win is just plain stupid!

    O'Connor & Benitez look good when they are playing together, why wont this prat of a manager just play them from the start????

    • WTF ??

      'One up front' Mcleish triumph's again. Chucho can't do it all by himself!

      Mcleish will never learn. I'm sure he thinks the best method of attack is to try to hang on for a point, home or away. we will never do any better than that with this manager. He must surely realise he can't cut it in England.......Bring back Barry Fry now !!
