Square pegs, round holes

Tyrone Marsh had a decent strike rate for Borehamwood last season – playing as a striker, I imagine. I don't know whether he could replicate that in League Two because I have scarcely seen him play up front. I do know he is a liability as a wide midfield player. He can't tackle, doesn't track back effectively or close down opponents. But then, he's a striker.
By the same token, Pett was really influential in his first few games for us in centre midfield. He isn't the same player out wide.
Carter played up front twice and scored three goals. Now he's out wide again, where he tends to lose possession all too regularly.
So why are we reduced to using these players in this way? Because we don't sign wingers, right or left.
Remember Lawrie Wilson and Luke Freeman? Wasn't it good?
Is it asking too much to ask that we pause the current obsession with signing striker after striker and add an old-fashioned wide player before the end of the transfer window?
