    I hate to label players or pigeon hole them into set positions and look at Wallace thinking he would be best used playing across the front line using his intelligence to find holes in defences.

    Jackett doesn't like creative number 10s - he likes whoever plays there to harry and chase opposition players to try and win the ball higher up the pitch, or to be running late into the box to try and get on the end of a cross if the striker misses it / hits it but it rebounds out or gets knocked down.

    Both types have their advantages and disadvantages when used correctly, but I think under Jackett Wallace is always going to be seen as more of a winger (of the Henry kind) than a number 10.

    Not my preferred style of #10 but can see that working. However, Jackett just doesn't set up like this, he likes his #10 to be a runner but doesn't press the ball anywhere on the pitch, he tries to suck the opposition and get them to make a mistake rather than put a tackle in to win the ball. It's this kind of muddled nonsense that has us playing the worst football since Hoddle (and I include Saunders in that).

    Surely the easiest way of making the opposition make a mistake is by taking away their time on the ball.

    Yeah that's what I mean - we sit off the opposition across the pitch, with the exception of Edwards, who actively seeks out and tries to make himself a nuisance for the opposition's midfield and/or defence without actually pressing in the true sense. He's good at the running side of his game, as we all know, but isn't good enough in the tackle (nor actually fast enough a reader of the game to anticipate opposition passes) to "press" as much as just hope to be in the right place at the right time if somebody misplaces a pass, for example.

    Preaching to the choir here LK. I think that's the case too. But when you look at Leicester and At Madrid they sit off, suck the teams on and then press the ball in their defensive third so they can isolate their speedy front players and wingers 1v1 against the generally slower defenders.

    Problem is Jackett has built a team without any pace in the wide or front man so essentially he has to give the ball away every time as there is no pace in the side. I can't work out whether this is an exact plan from Jackett himself or a complete change of philosophy throughout the club as I haven't seen the youth/ reserve sides play for a long time. I really hope it's the former as that is dealt with easily.

    I'm not a coach, but what I do know is that you have to press as a unit, one person doing it is pretty pointless. If the rest of the team pressed at the same time as Edwards he'd look less like a dog chasing a wasp, however as it is whoever he is chasing down has a number of options as the rest of our midfield sits off

    Wallace has been playing wide right for Millwall and doing well by all accounts. In the absence of many other options we might as well give him a go, VLP doesn't deserve to keep the shirt after Saturday. In fact, even leaving that aside we might as well have a look at him, you could have three months here to see if he's really up to Championship football with no real penalty as we have nothing to play for, or we could make sure he is definitely good enough to play for Millwall in League One. Which one is more beneficial to us, I wonder.

    Play a proper front two, again why not try something different to the formula which hasn't worked all season, Sig is no lone striker and nor is Mason if we try wanging the ball at his head. At least they might be able to link up if they're not stood 30 yards away from each other.

    We can't stifle a team by sending out a defensively minded midfield so don't even bother.

    Swap Byrne for Wallace and put Rowe on the left.

    Wish I'd read this earlier... My tickets are going to be sent down "on the coach" as I can't collect them from Molineux and only bought them today. I'm sure you'd have done me a favour and met me for a beer as payment Trev

    KJ has confirmed that Williamson will not be playing at Huddersfield. I thought he was meant to be back for the Preston game. I hope this is not another injury that will go on for weeks longer than expected.

    He is fit but needs a game, either for U21's or a friendly before he is put back in the 1st team. He hasn't played a game since November and hamstring injuries are a bitch for going again if the comeback is done wrong.

    Fair enough, that makes sense. Has he been injured since November? I know Newcastle recalled him, but three months for a hamstring is a long time unless he tore it.

    Injured pretty much as soon as put the Newcastle training gear on after his recall. Returned to light raining a few weeks ago and full training this week

    I strongly recommend that you visit the Grove too for pre-match warm up.

    Said six weeks when he got ruled out post-QPR - so I'd guess Bristol City/Blues is the earliest we'll see him.

    While not defending the current regime, it must be said that we have had a lot of injuries this season. I may be mistaken, but in the last two seasons, where we did very well, we were rather fortunate on the injury front. So who knows what might have been if we had not lost vital players through injury during the course of this season.

    It wouldn't have made any difference.

    Injuries didn't force him to play football that makes the eyes bleed.

    To a degree I would say they have. For example, Dicko changes the way we play by how high up the field we defend. This was highlighted when he was last injured and we has to get by with alternatives - as such, our style of play changed.

    When Dicko was fit in the opening three weeks of the season, we took him off at half time when we were winning in one game, dropped him for another and were playing Dave Edwards on the left wing throughout. The incomprehensible decisions and woeful performances - the QPR second half, all of the Cardiff game and the first 75 minutes vs Charlton were an abominable spell of football, genuine bottom end League Two stuff - were already happening to a degree before Dicko got injured.

    Losing Graham was a big blow given his contributions to the team but lest we forget Ken didn't see fit to give him a single minute in the opening three and a bit months of the season.

    Yeah injuries is no excuse. We were shit before. Same as we were shit with Afobe and are still shit. Shit with Stearman and still shit.

    It's the way we are playing not who we are playing.
    As usual, Wolves fans being fickle. - Waggy on the Wing
