    Matchday Thread: Gillingham v Port Vale

    Stormy times at present, our chances don't look good after Saturday. By the time we play again in Burslem, motivation and organisation need to have improved, the best use of the new arrivals and existing players to be progressing, a large task indeed. Will we have a team giving it a go against a hardended bunch like Gillingham?

    Drop purkiss and tanser as they are either out of form or not good enough. Play 5 in midfield so we dont get out battled and fought like we normally do.

    Playing Walker on his own up front will be a receipe for disaster away from home, the ball will just keep on coming back to us, he is too lightweight to hold the ball up, gets knocked off the ball too easily, not sure we have got anyone good enough to play this way. After yesterday's poor performance, got to be a couple of changes. For me if everyone was fit it would be;

    Farsan
    Gibbons Smith Streete Kiko
    Shodipo Guy Foley Thomas
    Forrester Hooper

    Hooper is wasted on the wing, get him up front, he has proved in the past he can finish when given the chance, the full backs have been poor in the last 2 games, would be a massive gamble but think Gibbons should be given a chance, Purkiss has really poor for a number of weeks and think Kiko was made a scapegoat after the Wimbledon game and never been seen since, he did well in the couple of games before.

    Kiko is garbage. Hes too small and cant defend. Play him left midfield yes play him left back no.

    I know that some lads were poor yesterday but I would not be inclined to throw in yet another youngster (Gibbons) at this stage. We've enough of them already and that's the core of the problem.

    Away from home I'd go 3.5.2 and try and strengthen the defence. Bring in Knops, possibly pair JJ and Forrester (agreed), and have a solid midfield three, hoping we might get one on the break. Midfield? It's perm any 3 from about 8 isn't it? Foley is a cert. Pugh for his experience I think. And one more? Who knows? Thomas? Guy?

    It's a tough tough ask for Brown and anything we can get out of these two games will be a huge ask and a massive bonus. Don't Millwall have a cup match after they play us? Might help a bit but I'm clutching at straws.

    The bottom 3 teams look as good as down. We've just got to make sure we're not 4th bottom come the end of April.

    Tanser out of form?
    He's only played 2 games.
