Albrighton Snubbed for Ayoze, Holloway Under Fire for Tactical Swap

CHARLTON - Ian Holloway's start with Dial Square has begun in the same manner in which he was sacked by Millwall in March. The 2-1 loss to Blue was marked by one player in particular and he didn't even see the pitch. Ollie was heavily criticized that Marc Albrighton was not on the pitch for the duration of the first half. "He sets the tempo of play, he's got an unbelievable range of passing," retorts the Armory boss continuing that he wanted to be conservative in the opener. He wasn't particularly happy about questioning his decision to instead start Ayoze Perez in a 4-4-3 instead of the 4-4-2 by replying "are you sure you haven't been drinking or something? Now ask me a sensible question."

This criticism highly overshadowed respectable performances by César Azpilicueta and Jesús Navas. Meanwhile, Blue one-upped those performance with contributions from Dusan Tadic and Graziano Pellè. Dial Square executive Ricky Mazella made a point that all it took was "one mistake" and that will change the complexion of the match. "Our match against Ferguson on the weekend is pitting a modest forward line to a great defending line and we'll need every bit of help we can get." Floyd Road is still awaiting it's first match for it's new tenant at The Valley.
