FFS.

I am now seriously considering not buying this.
What selection would get you purchasing it? :-)
Jussi, Gardner, NGotty, Jaidi, Hunt, Nolan, Campo, Okocha, Djorkaef, Anelka, Davies
Jaidi's a liability man, bring back Gudni

:pray: They'd still beat this lot fairly comfortably - we should see what they'd doing on Saturday's currently...

Well I think it’s an error starting Baptiste again. Have to hope he was just rusty on Tuesday...😳

Other than that I get it - not convinced by Brockbank left wing back but it’s more defensively solid (or at least that’s the argument).

Think Darcy’s unlucky and Crawford is lucky.

Bench is still odd.

I probably will still buy it because I have feck all else to do, but Brockbank at LWB and Baptiste anywhere WHYYYYYYYY??????

I don't know if you're seriously asking, but it seems to me that he doesn't trust either Gordon or Mascoll defensively.

I think you're right, but then it does beg the question 'Why have them both on the bench?'. More so, since we're going again without a sub keeper.

Judge the team after the game. It looks odd. Really odd. Baptiste in and Brocky at LWB. Certainly not what many would pick. But perhaps it’s about the right characters? We will know by 5pm or perhaps much earlier....

Baptiste has clearly been doing his Sergio Ramos impression in training again.

Has anyone’s i follow stream kicked in yet? I thought it started an hour before kO so having usually missed the first five minutes of games I’m trying to get organised! I don’t want to miss us go a goal down!

He's been rusty since 2013 - I don't think he's going to come out of it.

It's usually a bit random for me until right upon kick-off (assuming I've been able to actually buy a ticket in fcuked up iFollow land). I'm just getting shitloads of adverts at the moment on the iFollow Android client...Edit: got pictures now with ads playing over the top of them..

Crawford I also feel is fortuitous to keep his place given his anonymity so far this season, but not as big a concern as Baptiste.

I'd like to see Evatt display a bit more tactical nous mid-game if things aren't going our way this afternoon. He's been reluctant to make early subs so far and has generally made a lot of like-for-like changes, which doesn't fill me with confidence regarding his coaching ability.

Yep restarted my browser and sorted now, was just a blank screen. Cheers worthy. Might try and inject a pre match ritual now and have a few beers before KO to numb the pain.

I agree, and I don't think Brockbank played poorly on Tuesday night either. He isn't a proper wing-back, which is a problem in a system that relies so heavily on them, and it disrupts the development of the back three we seemed to have set upon on sticking with, practically forcing us to go with Baptiste, but if Evatt feels he needs character in there I can sort of understand if he feels it's a case of needs must.

If it’s a disaster in the game then we should and will say so. It’s not what I’d have picked. But equally he might be picking those up for the fight, we will find out.
