Default What Style does it take to get Promoted ?

The experienced physical sides normally do well , but they can be mindnumbingly boring.
We had an excellent defence last year and it got us to the playoffs, but at times was less attractive than watching paint dry.
BH has set out to play more attractive football with more emphasis on breaking quickly and scoring more.
I applaud that , but will it be at the expense of leaking goals ?
Will we have 2-3 defeats ,where we had 0-0 or even 1-0 wins last year.
If we finish 8th ,but play more attractive football will fans be happy ?

No the play offs have to be the minimum, with top 3 the target and strongly challenging for top spot. Fans will only be happy if we get promotion but the plan for this season has to be build on our improved showing last season and add a bit more quality going forward, scoring a few more goals that might just be enough to get us those extra points required.

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.

There was nothing wrong with last years style of play if we would have had genuine strikers who could score goals. I enjoy watching a good defence - it was just the finishing that let us down.

I disagree, we barely created any chances, let alone missed any

Totally disagree. Although I am not sure whether our strikers were good enough the biggest problem was the lack of creativity from midfield and very slow build up play. Over the last few seasons the same problem has existed and we have failed to remedy and relied solely on a solid defence. In very few games were we entertained and we created very few chances. Any forward would have struggled to score.

Can't agree with that. We barely created anything. Long hoofed balls to Beavon or the other midgets up front was the 'style'. Attacking wise it was dreadful.

Blimey. It was mundane boring Shite majority of the season. I lost count of the amount of times I nearly nodded off.

Successful teams are the ones the score goals. FFS attack.

I have to agree with this. We never seemed to build through midfield. We didn't even play into the channels for Beavon, he became a target man against giants. This never changed under Hughes either. Hopefully, the type of signings he has made pays the end of that style.

I think it's a fallacy that you have to play boring football to do well. Don't remember the two title chasing teams during the 98 point season playing turgid shit.

Yes I think we've lacked creativity for a few seasons, Boden is living proof I believe. He scored 20 last season because he had the chances to. I think we have upgraded the guns this summer but are still a little short on ammo. I think Redmond will supply some but we still need a pacey right back who can cross the ball and that holding midfielder to help keep our defence solid. Add a Walker and an Obeng (not the actual ones) and I think we'd be stronger title contenders.
