The Half-BackDelivery Issue 3 - 28/10/17Your Football Manager Fix - A new era 8th october 2017Half-back works withdynamics to recover from shaky startAfter a slow start to the vanarama national leaguehalf-back had to deal with some unknown squaddynamics for the first time to save their season taking a wrong turn,

Ba“rdrroaww”ainrge bboacarkdtaogatihne. 0-0 1-1 1-1 1-1After a positive pre-season Half-Back was going into the season withBarrow hoping to be battling out at the top end of the table with thehopes of promotion or play offs at the end of it. They got off to a poorstart with a 1-0 loss away to Dagenham & Redbridge. Not the ideal start to the season. This sent Half-Back back to the “drawing” board.You might of guessed where these nasty puns are taking us… Barrow went on to draw their next 4 games! Surely this wasn’t right.Their second game saw them pitted up against Halifax, a team theywere expected to beat. A stalemate 0-0 was a boring affair and one to be forgotten.Things got even stranger for Half-Backs men as they went on to con-secutively draw their next 3 games all 1-1. This left Half-Back scratch-ing his head and unsure where to turn, as things obviously weren’tquite working out with Barrow being deep down in 16th of the table and talks of relegation being murmured around the media.Page 2

Dynamic Disruption leads to successIt weren’t long with Barrow hovering just above relegation before rumourswere leaking out of the club. Reports were breaking that a few groups ofplayers were dissatisfied with the club and felt they were underachieving.Half-Back had a few issues on his hands with highly-influential Alex-RayHarvey being the leader of the discontent. Half-Back had this to say on thematter. “It’s clear to see we aren’t where we want to be in the league, but itis still early days and all it takes is the players and club to rally together and a few wins would see our fortunes change.”And would you believe it, it weren’t long before this happened! A shaky startof just 4 points from 5 games soon changed with Barrow now riding high in6th with 24 points having picked up 6 wins, 2 losses and 2 draws from thenext 10 games. Most notably ending the 10 game span with 3 consecutive wins.Clear highlights on this route have been a 3-1 win over recently relegated Hartlepool and a 1-0 win against table topping Leyton Orient.

Dinosaur Half-Back ditches old school 4-4-2 for the better. Originally going into the season it looked like Half-Back would lead his men with a standard 4-4-2 formation looking for high work rate from the midfield 4. It was quickly apparent in the early fixtures this maybe wasn’t going to be the way forward with goals being hard to come by and putting pressure on the defence. Central midfielders were feeling the force of this hard work and injuries came frequently due to the high workload and fatigue. A return in fitness for a few injured players coincided with a few loa- nee’s joining the club and a change in formation resulted in a huge upturn in form and performances. Half-Back’s men switched to a 4-2- 3-1 with a shadow striker who really benefited and helped the team to convert many of the stalemates to victory’s. Page 4
