Of course we have a plan B, says Bradford City winger Kyel Reid

Bradford Telegraph and Argus: Kyel Reid claims James Hanson’s improved link-up play has given the Bantams  an extra dimension when they push forward Kyel Reid claims James Hanson’s improved link-up play has given the Bantams an extra dimension when they push forward

Kyel Reid is the latest to pour scorn on suggestions that City can only play one way.

The long-ball tag has followed them around since Coventry boss Steven Pressley’s derogatory remarks about “dark age” football after last month’s 3-3 draw.

Winger Reid wants City to keep utilising the aerial strength and power of James Hanson. But he insists the targetman’s head is not their only route to goal.

Reid said: “Hans is a very big boy but he’s improving now with the ball at his feet. It’s better for me because I can feel confident in giving him the ball.

“He’s confident in holding it up and bringing others into play. That’s another dimension we can play instead of going direct or hitting the channels.

“It gives other teams something to think about. We’re not just a long-ball team like people are trying to say.

“You’ve got to laugh it off and take those comments with a pinch of salt.”

With more variety in playing styles among League One clubs than in the basement division, Reid feels City have had to mix it up and adapt to different scenarios.

He has full faith in Phil Parkinson to call the right shots in their push for the play-offs.

Reid added: “The gaffer’s had success in this division and the one below. He’s managed in the Championship before so he knows what it takes to get where he wants to be and where this club want to be.

“He also played a lot of games in his career. If we just listen to what he says then things will work out for us.

“There was a point last season where he said to us ‘you play the division and then you’ll win it’. We did that and showed that we are a good team and we got promoted at the end of it.

“You’ve got to mix it up at times now we’re in a different division and it’s a different style of play.

“Teams will be looking at how we had our success last year and trying to nullify that game-plan.

“So that’s when we come with something different and show that we’re not just about long balls and can actually play football because we’ve got good players in the team.”

City are keen to get going against leaders Leyton Orient on Saturday after their free weekend – the first of four clashes against teams above them in the promotion picture.

Garry Thompson has not yet returned to full training after an injection last week to calm down an Achilles problem. He has been working one-on-one with physio Matt Barrass.

cracking game coming up: let's hope the non season ticket holders turn out in their numbers as it will be an entertaining game and, apparently, the club needs funds!

I would like Reidy to vary his play. Cut inside more--instead of taking out two defenders down the wing. Then losing the cross. Plus, if brought down in the box. No theatrical diving. Go down--either stay down--or get back up immediately to win the ball. Let the Ref decide--not you.
*
OFF TOPIC.--We were not allowed to comment on yesterdays article. No doubt it was deliberately removed--legal reasons ??.
*
I think back to the Tranmere Match at City. When " Reidy " was fore-arm smashed in his face. The offending Player was not sent off !!!. Further fouling tactics, and he did not get a second yellow. BUT in this players next match, he was sent off !. He has been arrested,and has assisted police with 24 Hour inquiries.( I think ?--bailed until April.)
*
The Tranmere Goalkeeper--did everything to delay his goal/free kicks. Eventually, after several loud crowd complaints, he was cautioned. He seemed satisfied then, with his intentional ?-Yellow Card??. Although his intentional delaying tactics, wasted time, and lead to their win.
*
In view of this " Spot Fixing " investigation. I am further suspicious of that match against Tranmere.

First of all the comments were, quite rightly, not allowed on the 'spot fixing' article as it's an on going criminal investigation. Someone on here could say something that a jury member could read which could cloud their judgement and influence their decision. If you were on trial would you be happy if people were allowed to public (and anonymously) air their suspicions as to your innocence?
Also the Tranmere player who elbowed Reid was Goodison and the player who was arrested and bailed was Sodje. This is proves my earlier point as you just have implicated someone who has nothing to do with the investigation.

If Reidy reads this he has to mix his game also, that includes looking up and releasing the ball quicker to a team mate when in a better position and not just giving him it as a last resort when the chance is lost as the other player is picked up. Of course he won't always get it right, he is only human, but if he is seen to be trying to be less greedy and more of a team player, it will be recognised. This is just my opinion.

Goodison is under investigation. That investigation must include the City game against Tranmere in October.
In the immediate aftermath of the Tranmere game, I bumped into a friend. Both of us concurred that there was something not right about the whole of the afternoon. The bitterness in losing to cheats was not there. Instead, it felt like a fait accompli. Without checking, I also think this coincided with a dip in results.

If anything gives rise to the events of that day being reviewed, I would be very happy.

The plan b comments are not since the Pressley outburst.

I mentioned them in previous seasons. There is nothing wrong with our tactics when its working. Coventry is perfect example of their centre-halfs not been able to deal with it. Why play tippy-tappy when a direct ball is working.?

Its only when we are nullified e.g. Hanson is been given attention and/or
also Reid is doubled up on. and there nothing coming from either flank.

Thats where an attacking midfielder should be available etc e.g. a plan b....too often we merely play the same or simply throw on an extra forward in the last 10.

It again highlights the need for supply from the right thus immediately adding variety to our play.

We also look most effective when we allow the full-backs to over-lap but quite often this simply doesn;t happen.

Too often fans, players alike count passing across the back as a sign of playing football. Well when it ends with a big punt up-field anyway its not. especially when its allowed to happen and as dragged no-one out of position.

teams should play what works for them. If England aren't technically good enough then why try to emulate Spain etc.....noe its Germany evryone wnats to copy. Play to your strengths as there is many ways to win a football match......PS hopefully attacking one's ;-)

If it is true that Goodison tried to fix a sending off, perhaps the FA were already onto him. That might explain the performance of the ref and 4th official in refusing to red card him. Or perhaps they are just crap!

That's a proper conspiracy theory now ...

Let him play dirty !! Observe him but don't send him off ...

A double cheat in effect.

Someone will have a far east triad betting gang after them if that is the case :-)

If anything the Triads would be after the incompetent ref Darren Drysdale for not sending Goodison off and perhaps costing certain characters and syndicate's a lot of money, if these theories are correct of course re the Tranmere Rovers game...... but I must admit looking back, events in the game do now seem a little peculiar, or perhaps sinister. But I guess we've just to let the Police, FA and Gambling Commission do their jobs and not reach our own conclusions just yet.

Absolutely right "nowt fresh", and that is why I am not prepared to "hang Ian Goodison" at present. We should all not judge him just yet based on our feelings over the Tranmere game. He will stand or fall on phone records, betting patterns and other stuff beyond our knowledge. As for plan B, of course 4 defeats out of 19 is pretty good, but as supporters, management and players, all should be striving for even better. It is not a question of it being broke, it is a case of "how can I make this thing run even better" ? I am sure Phil Parkinson, Kyel Reid ( as he was quoted on the issue ) and all his team mates will be thinking likewise.

So what would you suggest we do as a plan "B" ? as your implying we don't have one, were 2 points outside a play off spot only lost 4 games so far this season (even though as you say we have not won at home since September) so just what system/formation do you think we can play to get us a better points haul than we have achieved so far this season, when Nahki was out Parky played Yeats off of Hanson hardly a sucsess, weve tried Yeats/De Vita wide instead of Thompson yet Thompson keeps getting a start in the number 11 shirt, tried Kennedy in midfield against MK Dons he lasted 1/2 game at home against Notts County then Doyle was brought on, we have tried playing the same players/formation for 70 or so minutes into a game then brought Yeats/Connell,Folan,
De Vita,McBurnie on, asI say Dan please point out what "plan B" you would use to get us back to winning way especially at home.
