Been a while, but I reckon I nailed this one!

I'm thinking same team as last league game with Hickman in for Jones. Maybe a sneaky 1 or 2-0. They've had a start like ours but only played 2 games.

Seems like Evatt is contemplating bringing in Baptiste. I suggest he leaves the winning side alone barring injuries. Hickman replacing Jones should be the only change.

Maybe Baptiste has "UNH" next to his name and has been promised First Team football... :-) Not sure I'd change it from last week. For all the criticism (deserved), Santos got pre-game, he played well during the game for the most part and almost looked decent.

I agree, however, having seen Crawford tire so poorly last week I'd have Darcy stripped at half-time, after an hour at the very latest.

What you do at half-time is your own business, Bruce. I prefer a cup of tea and a chocolate digestive.

Disappointed with the lack of fish puns following the excellent thread title. No one taking the bait on Ali Crawfish?

Hopefully we score a few early goals to leave it halibut over and done with by half-time.

A disjointed but convincing 2 nil win, with Doyle to score both and Ian Holloway to ramble on about rodents with big cocks.

Just one change: Hickman for Jones.

Regan Riley stays on bench, with Darcy and Gordon, Greenidge, Comley, Gnahoua and Baptiste - no GK again.

Glad he’s stuck with the same team from Harrogate (bar Jones), was worried he might be tempted to tinker with this talk about Baptiste being available again.

I assume Evatt has crunched the numbers and the benefits of an extra outfield player on the bench outweighs the lack of goalkeeper. Who do we think goes in goal if the unthinkable happens though? Brockbank?

I'd want somebody taller than 5'11" if possible, but it really depends on who wants it most. Ou sont les McGinlays d'antan?

Jumpers-for-goalposts rules usually state that it's either the tallest or whoever's shittest at playing outfield, right? It'll be Santos on that basis...

This not having a keeper on the bench seems an unnecessary risk - it’s not like we can use more than 3 of the subs anyway. I get statistically the chances of a keeper being sent off or injured are low but 1 this is Bolton wanderers, the kings of bad luck and 2 Crellin is a young lad learning his trade - a few instances of having his toes stood on at corners and he might see red...

It's not letting me pay for a match pass, for some reason. Anyone else having an issue?
