Long ball .....

I often find that supporters make this accusation when losing, but seldom when winning. It’s an easy excuse

But in case of JG teams it’s valid. I admit it’s not as bad as I feared it would be.

The tactic is exaggerated (and more obvious) by Breedon thinking he can pass like beckham .

Since day one of JG the aim is to get the ball to the strikers at every opportunity - every free kick and most throw-in opposition half.
Once there the big men can hope to get their head on it.

Addison was seldom fit and certainly not mobile YET under JG he was expected to get his head onto every attacking free kick, throw and corner... JG can not hide behind that.
