<IMG align=right border=1 src="/new_images/doc2.jpg"> <SPAN>More of your answers to the question 'should Gary Doherty play at the back or up front?'<BR><BR><STRONG>Peter Hannon, Harrow: </STRONG>Gary needs to play as a central defender. I think that he would find it hard to gain a first team place with the strikers we have and Teddy's arrival. The second reason for Gary playing as a centre back is that he seems to score more goals from there!<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P class=MsoNormal style="mso-layout-grid-align: none"><B><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Luis, Hong Kong:</SPAN></B><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt"> Gary should be player central defender. He's the one potential centre back we've got right now. True enough, his striking abilities are good too, but I do feel our team will gain more stability in defence if Gary can stay in the heart of it. His versatility and high work-rate is very much treasured and this type of player shall be an integrated part of a successful team.<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P class=MsoNormal style="mso-layout-grid-align: none"><B><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt">Tim Grigg:</SPAN></B><SPAN style="mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt"> I feel Gary is a better defender than striker. However, he can still be used at set-pieces and corners to great effect. Also, he could always come forward late in a game if we need a goal. Gary was one of the main plus points of last season and I think David Pleat deserves a pat on the back for realising his potential!<o:p></o:p></SPAN> <P class=MsoNormal style="mso-layout-grid-align: none"><B><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: 'Times New Roman'&#59; FONT-SIZE: 12pt&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt&#59; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'&#59; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB&#59; mso-fareast-language: EN-US&#59; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA">Ross Fielding, Shrewsbury:</SPAN></B><SPAN style="FONT-FAMILY: 'Times New Roman'&#59; FONT-SIZE: 12pt&#59; mso-bidi-font-size: 10.0pt&#59; mso-fareast-font-family: 'Times New Roman'&#59; mso-ansi-language: EN-GB&#59; mso-fareast-language: EN-US&#59; mso-bidi-language: AR-SA"> Gary Doherty is a defender. No two ways about it. Glenn please use him where he is the strongest. Quality not utility.</SPAN>
