Third Place Winner, December 2011 Photo Contest
Teams: West Brom and Arsenal. Dallas Cowboys.
I think he played Campbell up front as Bolton are a physical side and Kanu isn't suited to that sort of game. But he had to pull Kamara back into the midfield to make a 5 as we were gettign overrun in midfield. He pulled Greening inside and dropped Kamara to a wide left position, and we looked the better team.
But really with Ellington out injured, it left us with KAnu Cambell and Nicholson as our only fit strikers. So I can see why he went with Campbell. Even though hes pretty useless and we may have well have stuck Kozak upfront with Inamoto rather than have Campbell there.
Gera was unlucky not to score with that header, but apart from that our chances were limited. Kamara showed once again why he is a winger and only a winger, under NO circumstances can he be called a forward.
I think some of the players will stay, but I think Gera may go alas, a real shame but cest la vie.
I would have liked to see us more adventurous in this game, by playing something like
-------------- Kanu ---
--------------- Gera ----
Greening - Inamoto - Quashie - Kamara
Giving Kamara licence to get forward.
I think we'd stand a LOT more chance of actually scoring a goal than playing 4-5-1 with Campbell.
