On your last point, be fair NH isn’t one to just make like for like subs, like our last few mangers have been. He very often changes our shape and tactics. Not always to good effect of course.
Yeah, should've phrased it better. I tend to find the Pan B tends to be "hope Tomlin does something".

My point is that they have to play on the wrong side, as they can't go outside a full back, whichever side they are on. Very few wingers can these days.
You can find space, as Hoilett did today, without running past defender and hitting byline. The incident I refer to, Holiett had found space on the left, ball ideal for first time cross... but had to bring it back onto his right foot. It kills momentum.

It's also a deliberate tactic a lot of managers have used for the last decade or so, trying to give three attackers narrow, lone striker with wide players cutting in - using full backs to attack to give natural width.

If we want Moore as lone striker, no ifs, no buts, he needs service in the area not dropping deep like a false 9. Gestede profited at Blackburn by early and often crosses - other teams including ourselves wanted him to be a complete striker. f**k that - we sign strikers like Madine and then put them in position to fail by not playing to their strengths.

Midfield is our problem all 3 are much of the same and can’t pass water, Tomlin is our only creative outlet and i imagine teams are going to focus more on him this season, this isn’t the 80s anymore where you could have steve heighway just running down and crossing the ball to nod home

The wingers have to cut inside, because they are not quick or skilful enough to go outside the full back. Until quite recently. we did have one who could do that.
That’s the modern game. You can’t just knock it past a full back and get a cross in like the old days they are too fast these days. Teams are also clued up tactically, if a fullback is getting rinsed they will put someone out there to help him.
The days of 1v1 all over the pitch are long long gone.

Wingers hugging the touch line and not contributing much else except trying to get to the byline for a cross are a thing of the past. The width comes from full backs these days.

Because it’s old hat and out of date. There’s not a successful side in modern day football that plays with wingers getting to the byline and crossing. There’s a bit more to it these days.

Who said "hit the byline"? That's as predictable as cutting inside everytime.

It means we cannot get quick crosses into the area which Moore needs.
