Maybe he had to hold back quite a lot because none of the back three were able to cover the left side, thus leaving Williams often stuck in no mans land . Williams staying deep allows Jeff King more freedom to push forward, it all comes down to keeping your defence balanced and not having both wing backs stuck at the wrong end of the pitch

Bradshaw and Thackeray used to cross it to one another

Town always had Jon Brown to watch their backs when they went forward. I would love a Jon Brown in this seasons team.

Biography: Jon joined Exeter City in 1990 until 1995 playing over 200 first team games scoring 4 goals. Leaving to help Halifax Town win back promotion to the Football League in 1998. Jon's final league appearance was back at St James for Halifax in May 1999. Since leaving the professional game Jon has become an Chartered Architectural Technologist working in a Wakefield based Architectural practice.

So thats 17 players now on board, but Browny & Hanson still remain on the transfer list. Would be good to know what the situation is regarding these players, whether any offers have come in etc.

16 by my count if we are including Brown and Hanson

I think this is it. With no pace to cover, he couldn’t leave it exposed.

Most clubs tend to have one wing back that kicks on whilst the other shuffles across and creates almost a back 4

Have we given up on a Brown compromise deal.

Ah good old Browny. Designed us a bus depot in Leeds which was all very well until it came to my office and he put all the electrical sockets and computer whatsits at one end of the office. I had to threaten coming in one Sunday and ripping it out before it got put right. Never trust a footballer.

Sounds about right. I once worked on a set of brand new medical centres across what was then known as North Kirklees (Dewsbury, Batley, Cleckheaton, Ravensthorpe and Heckmondwike) and spent most of my time walking around buildings with architects drawings telling the Site Manager where the electrics and network points needed to be moved as they were at the wrong end of the room or would be at the wrong side of the desk. I even had one site where the network connections where on the wrong side of the wall, in effect outside of the office they were supposed to serve.
