  1. Use science to assess the players …. Unless a player is showing signs of fatigue and a resultant increased risk of injury then play a strong team and let’s see if we can progress … there’s always the option of easing back in training.
  2. Ok fair enough… so you d change the whole system to accommodate Denis when we are well on top with both forwards well in the game with an assist each? i ll leave it with you then… for me this is as good an away performance as you could wish for at a difficult place to go. I think the fact we are second in the league shows we have some aspirations of promotion surely irrespective of today’s result?
  3. There ya go… pretty much as I thought.. no need for any substitute s just keep doing what we re doing…. Surely anyone can see we re the better team?
  4. Think I must be watching a different game…. Vale played well I thought disappointed to concede an equaliser but come on we were the better team in the first half of a difficult away game.
  5. Great pub that…. Always start off there on a Friday night pre covid
  6. I'm always surprised how quickly we want to move away from a system which has served us so well.... and we signed Lloyd as cover for a central striker so surely he should be the player to get a first chance at it in an unchanged formation i.e. as part of a front 2. If he doesn't get in the team now with 2 central strikers ruled out he may as well be sent back ! The other issue is if you don't start with Lloyd then by process of elimination we would be starting with at least 2 of Amoo, Rodney or Politic none of whom can last a full game..... that leaves the manager with a problem because he will automatically be making 2 subs after 50 - 60 mins which restricts his options for changing things if we aren't going well or if there's injuries elsewhere in the team. It should be a cracking game but it will be tough, typically league 2, we have to be physical and come out on top.
  7. correct.... DC didnt play him for football reasons, in the same way as hes chosen to not play him on previous occasions... could it be he doesnt trust his fitness yet or his work off the ball maybe?
  8. Yes he could, but personally I can't see Lloyd playing at all well as a lone striker. Hope I'm completely wrong of course if he does go down that route yep its great having DC as a manager as you can be sure whatever decision he comes to will be on the back of some serious consideration and research... but of if LLoyd comes in for Wilson as the only change then he would be up top in a two with Amoo not a lone striker: I really dont know what he ll come up with for this one, if I was pushed I think he ll keep the changes to personnel and the system to a minimum which would mean a chance for LLoyd I think....
  9. Or DC could keep it simple and just bring in LLoyd instead of Wilson... this allows him to keep the formation that has served us fairly well this season. I don't think he ll trust Politic to start away from home... not sure he works hard enough off the ball for a tight away game where possession will be exchanged every third pass !.... anyway we will soon find out
  10. It was a fantastic game…. Great to see Stockport back at it… difficult night for Bolton they looked to lack physicality but it’s always difficult to judge on a single viewing. I always remember Jim Steele scoring there as we stood on the benches behind the goal on our way to promotion… bloody hell how long ago was that?
  11. Good idea that… we tried it in the bycars but there wasn’t enough of us to get it across the width of the penalty area without it dropping on the floor !
  12. Probably a lot of good ideas stated here, I d be surprised if the current owners weren't aware of some of them and may have even costed some of them. A simple one we could fix for no cost which would be more beneficial to the club and the team is to create a better atmosphere in the ground more in keeping with a club near the top of the league. I thought it was a bit too quiet against Bradford.
  13. Is the view of the pitch from behind the new build houses still ok ?
  14. With respect I am far from stupid… but to get 3 major decisions where linesmen take the lead in the decision making process out of the last 4 (1)v Accrington (2)v Crawley and (3) Smith vs Bradford and (4)the potential sending off of the Bradford player is doing not too bad in my eyes. We d bettter get used to teams are going to come and try everything they can to get a result and if we continue to get 3 out of 4 major decisions going our way then we have definitely done not too bad. apologies for being stupid.
