Midway through the second half did we go 3-6-1 for a time??

It certainly looked like it!!

It didn''t look like any formation at all. More like 11 schoolboys chasing a duck.

No idea with that but I really hope Granty should learn he cannot play 3 or 4 different formation in each game, because we are not play "Championship Manager", that''s real football!!!

Hux didnt go up front yesterday until deep into the second half - we were 3-6-1 for a short while;  lappin was sat too far infield for anything else. I am sure grant willk say it was the ultimate flexible 4-3-3

The tactics and team selection were the key problem for yesterdays game,  we looked better wehen we finally had a natural width when lappin and croft were wide and players finally had some sense of shape.

Shapeless is how we were yesterday

It was amongst the biggest shambles I have ever seen...4 different formations in 1 match?  in a plainly struggling side? Grant cost us any chance of a victory yesterday with his idiotic inept decisions...Struggling side needs to keep it simple Play 442Safri is head and shoulders above anyone else in midfield...he should be first name downHux is best player in team...play him through the middle where he is liable to do the most damage...and not have to revert to picking the ball up deep in his own halfDon''t play a 17 year old isolated up front on his own... or right wingDon''t play 451 if you''re chasing a game...Play Lappin in his best position...left midfield ahead of Drury...would also encourage latter to overlapNo more easy games at home now either...this week at Luton and Barnsley is looking vital...
