I can't think of a line up that works for this game. Thorpe and Derik in the middle means surrendering possession and being on the back foot for most of the game, without any pace or penetration to take advantage of our rare attacks. Trotter is out of form, or possibly disinterested, and anyway is at his worst away from home. Le Fondre to me doesn't fit in a Parky team, at least from the start. If we had Long avaiable I could see some merit in a 4-2-3-1 with Wabara at right back, and Derik, Vela, Morais as the three in the middle, with Long and Solomon flanking Madine. But Long isn't available and Solomon will be a risk Parky doesn't want to take, and Wabara might not be match fit.

2-0 to them.

I'd like to see us play a little less regimented and predictable and a bit more fluid and unexpected, sort of like our player scoring from the right wing whilst playing left back (Ricky Gardner) or a holding midfielder scoring from forty yards (Ivan Campo..both comments prompted by the recent article of all "our yesterdays" and both remembered well) . Surely Phil allows them to think on the hoof and be just a little bit maverick as a surprise move occasionally? Has football become so stylised that teams like Fleetwood can beat us by playing Subutteo because they always know what comes next? I'm really hoping the Wheelbarra chap can do the unexpected and shock the kippers.

Think it's pretty obvious we aren't going to dominate the ball tomorrow. Solid centre, pace out wide, please.

BN saying today:

Wanderers remain hopeful they can offer ex-Reading midfielder Jem Karacan a short-term deal.

The EFL say a one-month contract could be allowed under league rules if the club can prove they cannot name 18 fit players in a matchday squad.

To cite a time when we were at our most regimented and organised and ruthlessly efficient at it, makes me laugh.

The difference of course is that Ricardo Gardner and Campo were considerably better than our current team.

But then again, we're not playing 2005 Man Utd, Chelsea or Arsenal...so they shouldn't actually have to be as good as Campo...

I think the away end had sold out when I looked online. A few of the away games I've looked at have been sold out too. Is the allocation not very big or is the appetite for seats really that great?

It's certainly a novel way of announcing a new signing.
