I don't think the conditions helped the midfield as the goalkeepers and centre backs were all adopting the "hoof-it-high-&-long" tactic to try and use the wind to their advantage. Unfortunately this meant that our midfield looked like they were watching a game of tennis with the ball going left & right above their heads. In better conditions I think they have the ability to get the ball down and control the middle of the park. If we could get another Mancienne on loan from somewhere then I think we'd be sorted. He had a certain poise and composure about him that made him stand out. He wasn't coming across arrogant but he was strutting like he was in control of everything (which for most of the game he was). Promotion.... it's a certain as picking the winner in tomorrows Melbourne Cup!!!

I think you are being a little premature, remember what happened a few years back when we were 11 points clear of the Baggies? As for the defence, yes, we have been leaking a lot of goals but I would also be pointing the finger at centre midfield. Just by watching Jones in the last game against Cardiff it appears to me that he goes "missing" for too much time during the game. Henry had an okay game but not one of his best. Mancienne looked very accomplished and showed some classy touches. Hope he stays in the team and improves further with more games. With him and Stearman we now have the very quick centre backs we have all been asking for. In regards to the Keegan tactics I would much rather us play this way than we did last season! Great to get a bit of luck for a change as well, Cardiff could have had 2 penalties on another day. Roll on Birmingham for our next TV game!!

Fortunately at the moment we are able to score more than we concede but surely this tactic isn't going to work when we're in the premier league. I think we need to start reinforcing our defence now for when (a) our strikers hit a rough patch (b) we get promoted. The information contained in this email is confidential.
