Iles live feed gone eerily quiet. Desperately trying to find out who Maddison has lamped/shagged to get dropped.
Aye, spotted that.

The no sub keeper thing is really stupid.
I'm absolutely convinced that we'll get caught out at some point if he continues with this.

It makes me nervous but there is some logic to it.

Yes, the sort of logic that has bypassed the greatest managers the world has ever seen...

“More attacking options” is his logic, but do we really need more than Fonz, Arthur, Miller and Thomason? Not for me.

And I’m someone who is all in favour of looking at statistical probability to inform decisions, but the upside of having Elbo there doesn’t merit the risk.

The only logic I can see is that Elbouzedi must be better int' nets than our spare goalies, which, to be fair.............. ;)

Well, we've picked up points lately by being able to effectively change our entire front line after an hour. We mightn't have been able to do it without that extra option.

I don't know if I'd risk it myself with a goalkeeper as old as ours, but Evatt's clearly decided it's a gamble worth taking.

Considering he trumpeted his recruitment as being based on having 2 and 3 players for every position, I've no idea why he keeps risking no keeper on the bench.

He'll rightfully get pelters for it when it finally costs us.

There were times earlier in the season where I genuinely wondered if Crellin might actually be third choice. :wink:

It makes a little more sense while we can use 5 subs but I still don't think it's worth it

Maddison is either injured or we'll never see him again.

I like it when the main complaint is the presence or absence of a substitute goalkeeper. Long may that last.

Our moves break down every time Doyle gets a touch with his back to goal. He really has to do more.

Edit: And yet again. That’s 4 times in under ten minutes he’s needlessly lost the ball when we could have built an attack.

I see that Isgrove's made the side now his figures have been buoyed by - Successful Pass Completion: 1, Assists: 1 :D
Still on 1 after that awful attempt at a cross...

He has started this game poorly.
