Re: The tactic of playing one striker up front.

Works if you have two fantastic wide midfielders like Pilks and Rowe and JG executed that tactic fantastically well 10 years ago. Dominate the midfield and then use the midfield to support attack.
However we don't have the same threat. I'm sure that is what Thomas and Stephenson are meant to do, but Thomas isn't really consistent enough and Stephenson has been awful and is now injured.
Only having 2 real strikers leaves us terribly exposed, especially if we have injuries. Without Oswell and Warburton we were completely toothless vs FC United.
