    Attention Jackett and powers that be at Molineux. We need a new no 10.
    Dave Edwards tries his best but is simply not good enough to play this role.
    Unlike your dithering in January can you please get this sorted next week when the loan window opens.
    Thank you!

    Of course we do, needed one all season (well since Jacobs went out of the picture).

    Edwards is a squad player at best and him occupying that no.10 role is the cause for many of our problems.

    Jez/Thelwell here is leicester's number: 0344 815 5000 give that a ring and ask about a player called Anthony Knockaert

    I couldn't go today mate but I have seen and heard enough to realise Edwards is not the answer and never will be.
    I have been told be was very poor today in a key role.
    No 10 is a massive role in this formation and he simply isn't up to it, in my opinion.
    He must be one of the most uncreative no 10's around.

    He wasn't the reason for today mate. Evans was very very poor and RVLP and Sako did very little too.

    Cheers. Evans has to be dropped. Our options are so limited though. We lack quality at no10 and central midfield, in my opinion.

    We do. But with Price in we are too negative so we have to find the happy medium.
    Price with Iorfa and Golbourne. Provides the shield. Evans is too Hollywood. Price has to develop going forward otherwise he will
    Keep being rotated

    You can give Jackett all the money you like.Let him buy 7 'number 10's'.

    His negative,safety first approach will not get you promoted from this division where generally the sides that score heavily prosper.

    His tactics have drained the life out of the team this season.

    We could buy Messi and he'd still play Edwards.

    He's one of the most uncreative players in our squad only Ikeme, Batth and Ebanks Landell are less likely to make a key offensive pass.

    As you say the number 10 role is vital in this system in so many ways, not just the straight forward output of goals & assists but linking the wide players, forward and the two sitting midfielders it really has to be the hub of the team.

    Anyone who plays this system successfully will have a no.10 in a certain mould and that is completely the opposite to what Dave Edwards brings to a football team.

    Totally agree.
    Take a way the few goals he scores and what does he offer exactly apart from running around?

    I've said it before.Our 'number 10' is being picked for his defensive ability which sums up the approach under Jackett.

    He protects the CM who,in turn, play ridiculously deep to protect the defence.

    Negative,negative,negative.

    Edwards was anonymous, but McDonald and Evans were both dreadful. The midfield balance is all wrong - needs sorting! Number 10 is getting a joke now, why do we insist on shoehorning Edwards into a 442 when its obvious he can't play there

    No we don't.

    We need a new central midfielder full stop to enable us to play a different formation to 6-0-2-1-1

    We need a No 10 and a quality partner for Macdonald. He is trying to get on the ball and pass but 60% of the time theirs no one available to pass to.

    Whilst all of the above is true, our two wingers had huge amounts of the ball today, if we play with wingers should we not expect a delivery now and then? One delivery of quality from RVLP, other than that it was mediocre ,being kind. Sako marked out of the game. Edwards in CM was distressing to behold.

    I think that "a lot" is pushing it, there were a few moments, after that there were two or three on him every time he had the ball.

    Edwards tried manfully to do the job of three players today with Evans and MacDonald missing in action for large periods - especially first half. If they were any good at this level he might just possibly not have to cover for their lapses and be able to concentrate on attacking the opposition. As things stand we are woeful in those two crucial roles in a 4-2-3-1 formation. Price is a definite improvement but we need to trade up MacDonald at the very least to an experienced Champ level midfield general which disappointingly he isn't.

    Ask Jackett. We don't have many options but he is happy with his squad so that is ok!

    Absolutely right aside from Edwards IMO who was admittedly ineffective.
     
  25. Jacobs is the answer! Looked a great prospect last year, and hasn't at all been given a fair opportunity this year....
