Awful start, but what do the tactics look like... Passing around more or playing direct?

Goes to show what a bit of build up play can do doesn't it, rather than going route one all the time. First goal from open play this season, lets hope it gives us a confidence boost. Come on Whites!

I think it's quite clear where the problems are on the pitch. According to BBC Sport in our 1st 4 league games the highest percentage of possession we have had is 50% vs Watford. The other 3 games have been around the 40% mark, with our match vs Boro being a measly 38% and so far today we are on 40%. This is not good enough.

That's why we need to play 5 in midfield. That extra man can win, or at least challenge the 2nd ball and we can start from there. Players like Mason and Chung Yong Lee are excellent players when we can actually get hold of the ball. Any defence would crack under so much pressure and it's no surprise that ours usually does. As for the 3 in midfield. When fit, I'd have Spearing, Holden and Mavies. If no Holden then Josh Vela. Let's just keep the ball first instead of tossing it up to Craig Davies and hoping.

Beckford showing what he can do. Last season his run of goals got us out of a tricky spot, can he do it again? Let's hope so. For me Mason wasn't good enough the past few games, get Beckford in there and hope he takes one of these chances Dougie has been saying we've been missing!

Hopefully onwards and upwards, Leeds the real test. Had more of the ball this half, limited them to little chances, and now bagged the winner. Take note Douglas!

We just can't hold a lead. We need more protection and tenacity in midfield when we get a lead, because the back 4 has little protection at times

For Leeds away I think Dougie needs to ignore pressure from the fans and go back to his favoured 4-2-3-1 with Beckford alone up front. We need to be solid at the back with a poacher up top. We clearly can't hold on to any form of lead, and for me thats the only way in the short term where we can improve. With a few more solid performances, maybe then we can open up to a 4-4-2. However right now, I feel the team isn't ready for this 4-4-2.

As I write this, Beckford grabs a second! Just goes to show what a poacher we already have. Be positive my fellow Wanderers fans, we do have some good strikers. We just need the right tactics instilled from the gaffer, and hopefully we can push on

I agree. We always want a Wanderers win but frankly this papers over the cracks. It's Crewe we played bottom of league one with no points and we talk of formations etc. get real we have struggled again against so called inferior opposition.

Couldn't poach an egg. Sorry I just don't share your optimism but wish I could. Get set for the Beckford bromance with Leeds fans on sat.
