Width and pace. Both of which were lacking last season.

We hardly created any chances last season due to the fact wed just hoof the ball up the pitch.

Im still concerned that we lack a midfield general.

Good, attractive football would be enjoyable and good to watch, but everyone wants and expects Wxm gain promotion from the NL so league standing is the biggest factor.
Just a small but important point. For WFC in the fifth tier, the target should not be anything less than top. Top 3 is marginal underperformance versus target, play offs is barely acceptable underperformance. Below play offs is totally unacceptable, irrespective of who owns the club. A low target generally leads to lower expectation and performance standards resulting in lower delivery.

For me, good football and promotion are not mutually exclusive. The best sides in most leagues are usually more than able to look after themselves when needed as well as being able to play a bit.

I agree with much of your post but clarity on requirement versus achieved outcomes is vital for success in any endeavour.

Let’s face it, this more pragmatic approach has yielded better seasons. Under keates we were fully set for a playoff position at the very least until he left. Last season resulted in our best finish for years.

As long as we’re winning or doing well in the league, the stats suggest the fans aren’t fussed about style. We just want a successful team.

The last two seasons the football has been pathetic.Without our captain I would hate to think how far down the division we would have ended up,just hope we do not sell him after we have sold our 2000 season tickets.

It has but you could also say that getting the defence and keeper sorted played a large part of having better seasons.

Its the home games which drove you to despair last season, a complete lack of urgency and attacking threat in far too many games. This keep it tight and hope to nick a goal is probably best left to tough away games. Not at home against some of the dross of the league. There is no doubt that we have to have more to our game than lumping it aimlessly forward, as we've been doing for a while now.

Solid defence, midfielders who can move the ball with pace and strikers who convert their chances.

Our home performances may have 'driven people to despair' but we had the best home record of the national league. The balance between creating football that's nice to watch vs grinding out results will be tricky one for Bryan Hughes.

Yes that midfield general who we have missed for many seasons,the nearest we have got is Summerfield but he goes missing for 45 minutes,does not have a tackle in him.

our budget is directed more at the defence than attack. I don’t know what players earn but I’d be surprised if any attackers are earning more than Smith and Pearson.

If this is the case (I'd tend to agree it is) then it needs to be addressed because ultimately its not working.

I’d be amazed if Grant was on less than Manny.

Ultimately though, we need to make better use of the width the racecourse affords us. You can see from the match against Druids that Hughes is looking to exploit the wings more than last season, particularly with overlapping full backs.

I’d still be wary about playing like that away from home against some of the better teams though as I’m not convinced Jennings has the energy to get up and down and while Jazzi looked great going forward, I’d like to see what he can do defensively first
