Experimental XIs

I WOULDN'T mind it if we were a little more adventurous with our lineups, as the quality of squad we have this season is so good that we need to be utilising their abilities to control the games:

In Bogle we have a big, strong, skilful and clever forward - the target man., with this in mind we could play with a single striker up front, and swap them every few games, or bring on Amond for the last quarter.:

            McKeown
East   Pearson   Toto   Robertson
Arnold   Disley   Clay   Marshall
            Monkhouse
              Bogle

Amond, is a good player, and so to swap him in would be a waste. So to carry on with the current 4-4-2 we could properly utilise our fast wingers (Marshall and Arnold), and so by pushing them up we leave the central pairing as defensive midfielders; which complements Disley and Clay's styles of play:

            McKeown
East   Pearson   Toto   Robertson
Arnold   Disley   Clay   Marshall
         Bogle   Amond

But since Monkhouse is neither quick nor defensive, he is very much one of our best players, and so we could line him up in the centre and drop a centre-mid and push him further up:

            McKeown
East   Pearson   Toto   Robertson
            Disley
Arnold     Monkhouse    Marshall
            Bogle

These are just some experimental lineups that could be used to spice up or XI and maybe make us a more unpredictable, and freighting side to play.

These are my opinions so please do not get aggravated by them :D
