I think the defense would not be good enough in the Championship, seriously i do. Charlton is half the player at left back. Fleming has always been a concern. Doherty is ok leaving edworthy as our best defender. Lets hope Shackle turns out to be as good as we first thought. Drury to timid and frightened of prem. Francis is our only true premiership quality player. When him and holt are in midfield we generally look quite tight. Jonson tries hard but offers little. Helveg is good when he is up for it. Mulrynne thank you and goodbye, same to mcveigh. Stuart is a Charlton reserve player. Up front Ashton will be very good next year, when he settles in. a good buy. Hucks has got class when he has the space, prem defenders not so easy to trick and have more pace. Leon, no one tries more harder than him and could still be a good partner for aston if we go down. Svensson same as Helveg, brill when up for it crap when not. Overall we seem to have got progressively worse since Christmas. We seem to be so defensivly minded. We should be going all out at teams take a chance at the back, not try and defend and snatch a goal. We have proved that when we have to score i.e when we have gone behind we can do it, so why not start like that? How can we try to defend with that defense. We have gone over 20 games without a clean sheet. So in effect we need to score at least 2 goals in each game to have a chance of a win. That is the approach to take. We know we will let in goals so send them out to score 3. Get midfielders forward in numbers, play the ball longer and get aston to hold it up and bring midfield in to play. by playing through midfield we keep giving ball away cheaply to close to our goal, if we give it away further up field we have time to get back and defend. Why don''t we foul when we give the ball away. all other teams foul as soon as we are on the break effectivly breaking up our attack, s o they can get back and defend. This is what they have got to learn quickly. You realise that palace have only failed to score in 2 away games! 82% of teams that score first go on not to lose the game! so by letting in first goal we only have a stat chance of 18% to win the game when going a goal down. I think Green has lost a lot of confidence playing behind ''that'' defense. He is still a quality keeper and will come back. I think we are dead lucky that Southampton have had a bad year otherwise we would be sunk. As it is we have a chance to stay up providing we change tactics. I want to go down all guns blazing, not surrounded by a series of comical errors.
