Judge out for the season

Post by Ando » Wed Mar 11, 2020 7:17 pm

Judge has broken a toe in training and is out for the rest of the season...... time for Dobra!

He has been underwhelming this season. But I still feel that there is more to come. Family issues, injury pre season and QPR bids didn't help him.....nor did being played out of position. Hope he has a full pre season and comes back stronger.

I’d play Dozzell in Judge’s position. Dobra should start...I think in a striker roll. A bit like Eric Gates, I bet he’d scrap a few goals.

Where would Judge’s position be? Wide left or number 10 role? I don’t think Dozzell fits both those positions... I’d say he’s better in a deeper Skuse role, as long as he’s got a minder - someone like Downes - beside him. I’d prefer Dobra as a number 10. Dobra needs a chance and I just want someone to just run at a defence and stretch them.... rather than the usual pedestrian, telegraphed approach of passing it sideways.

You'd know better than me, Tang. I solely base my opinions on highlights and sports literature...sprinkled with a bit of football acumen. I'd be fine with Dobra as an attacking midfielder who focuses on finishing rather than creating. Let's face it, you could give our strikers the ball in front of an open goal and they'd still miss. I was thinking of the No.10 role regarding Judge; I believe Dozzell is more of a creator with his accurate passing and his through balls may be beneficial...if we have anyone to run on to them. I could be wrong though, as I've said.

After all this time, I wouldn’t know Dozzells best position. He’s s still a bit of an enigma. He’s been played mostly deep. He certainly can thread a ball through, but don’t think he’s got the energy to play behind the strikers. I think he’s planning his exit from Town anyway, so I’d prefer to see Dobra given a chance. More chance of keeping him and I think he could become a better player (at League 1 level anyway ) than Dozzell.
