I don't usually believe in over hyping situations, but I would love Kevin and Carol to be introduced  to the home support before the game,just so we can have the chance to show them our appreciation.

As long as she doesn't grab the mike and do a Delia .

I wonder if Norman Collier is still doing the announcements ?

What is the obsession with 4-4-2 at home? Askey will play his favoured and worked on 4-3-3 formation and rightly so. 

Also, it's not one up front, it's three up front with Oyeleke linking it all up. Effective and well drilled in my opinion.

Just don’t think Joyce is needed at home. At home I want us to take the game to the opposition so two up top (and I’d say two of our better players) are a must for me. Happy for us to set up 433 as long as it is 433 not 451. I still don’t see it as 3 up front. It looked to me at Colchester that worral and amoo were very wide so two wingers and a forward.

You only have to look at what Colchester  did to overrun us in midfield as the first half wore on, and it shows that with even less bodies in there that the same could happen again if we played with 2 up top. 

 

In that formation on Saturday when we were on top we had worrall and Gibbo getting joy down the right, Crookes and Amoo linking  up well down the left, Manny driving from midfield and Conlon picking up the bits with Joyce sitting. It can work in an attacking sense, people just see the fact that Pope is the lone striker and think it’s negative, but when it works it’s not a negative formation. It was when Aspin played it because he didn’t allow players the same freedom.

The dinosaurs love a 4-4-2!

It's not 1995 anymore guys!

Maybe the club read the outpouring of backwardness on the 'No cash at Colchester' thread and thought it best to bin the online ticketing system because it'd be too much for our prehistoric fanbase.

On a serious note, I hope this is sorted by the weekend. Carol has spoken a lot about 'the North of the city' being our territory and I applaud the sentiment and ambition of that statement, but there's a large number of people who go to watch Port Vale and want to spend lots of money at Port Vale who live absolutely nowhere near 'the North of the City' or Stoke-On-Trent at all. We need to look after those people, too.

Is that sarcastic? Did you see they got comprehensively beat by QPR? 

The more you go on, it is plain to see you have very little football knowledge. You are the typical ‘sign a name’ sort of football armchair fan. 

We may not have worldbeaters, but I guarantee we will finish above where we did last season.

That is good enough for me. Is that good enough for you Ern (moaning old fart) ?
