I’m not sure I can bring myself to do it yet! It’s one thing driving back from the game letting your frustrations out but another sat shouting at a laptop at home! Could end in divorce!

It looks certain that the weather is going to be absolutely atrocious for this one, which I wouldn't necessarily say is a positive for sides prone to defensive errors...

Iles thinks Delaney may be recalled as Evatt says “We have to defend and fight, and I’ll pick a team that I think I’d want to be in the trenches with.” There’s that metaphorical militarism again...

Of course, in the trenches, they had blokes whose job it was to shout:

"ccccccchhhhhhhhhaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggeeee"

Don't forget that bit Ian. :-)

Aye. Just paid my ten Quid. That's the only charging I reckon I'll be seeing from our lot today. ;)

:lol:

That article is fookin scary. He's on about back to basics - where basics is "tackling" and "heading" - how's it taken this many games to spot that wasn't happening? When you have to teach a "defender" that they're supposed to fcuking win headers, you're usually in the doo doo.

I'm assuming they've kept a fair proportion of players who know how their "promotion team" works, we have a collection of school yarders, last picks (which is good coz we're handy for the school run - credit LE) who we're need to teach to fcuking head the ball. I fear the worst. The sky is indeed falling in. I usually trip to the pub at half time, the pain grow less from that point.

FIVE changes - Santos stays in!

IN Delaney, Brockbank, Sarcevic, Tutte, Mascoll.

OUT Taft, Hickman, Comley, White, Gordon.

Surely a back three? Brockbank-Santos-Delaney, with Mascoll and Jones wide. Most experienced midfield trio (Tutte/Sarce/Crawf) and front two.

Back to 3 at the back?

Santos the new one with information on the manager?

Major axe swinging and Santos still there and Hickman benched. Feels rather random. Sorting Hat.

Aside from the competition winner still starting I’d point out we have no sub goalkeeper. 2 fukin guesses what’s going to happen today!

Reversion to back three - fine by me
That midfield trio - fine by me
Probably most experienced XI possible (bar Brocky) - fine by me

Who plays where in that back three - mystified
That Santos plays at all in any system - mystified

Where Santos plays isn't a mystery. It'll be wherever he happens to be stood.

Thing is Every once in a while Santos might have a blinding game but You know that even during that particular freak event he’ll still switch off at a corner or free kick leaving an opponent with an easy chance. Liability!

If he just keeps picking Santos until we manage a win and keeps shuffling the other 10, then he'll be able to say "see it wasn't Santos fault"....

I'm a glutton for punishment: I've got another match pass for this one. I just don't want to miss it when we win! – we have to eventually... right? :shock:

Just thought the same.

What he sees in training must be magical.
