Its not brain surgery, he is using the last few games to try out players in different positions,

It seems Jay's on his way, Pato is clearly knackered, and Charlie's shoulder is carrying an ominous amount of strapping. Every possibility that Ings will be our first choice striker next season. He's been played mostly on the left-wing so far, but on Saturday Eddie was really pleased with his display in his preferred position of central striker in the second-half, and that's what we bought him as anyway.

So after a good performance, a goal, and a potential vacancy for a central striker next season, the Birmingham game was an ideal opportunity to give Ings another run-out in the position we bought him for, and we'll probably need him for next season. A perfect chance to 'experiment', try out our new centre-forward. So he starts him in midfield and plays a loanee winger up front.

I've tried, but I still can't follow the logic of that. Does he really think that's the way to go next season, Ings in midfield and McQuoid replacing Jay ?

I'll confidently predict now that that's about as much chance of bringing us success as getting crosses into Iwelumo had. None whatsoever.
