Luton Vans - Match Thread 10:22 - Jan 11 with 35472 viewsCFW

Never had the confidence to start a match thread, going early and hoping first time lucky!!

The obvious questions - will Charlie start? will he be used as an impact sub and can we keep a clean sheet? I really, really hope and pray that bringing him back works out for both sides. There are two Charlie Austins - the one we took on, burning desire to do well, worked very hard for the team, played on even though he was in a lot of pain and gave everything to every game. The other, unfortunately, (if you read and believe the reports) is someone who lost his desire, had his head turned, went off the rails, put on a load of timber and is not, and will never be the same man or player he was in the past. Could go either way, but I hope for both the club and his sake it goes well for him and I wish him all the very best of luck.

I am going for a 1-2 win - and after being awarded a penalty Charlie picks up the ball and gives it to Dykes who slams it into the back of the net to win us the match. They embrace and it is the start of a beautiful partnership.

I originally forecast a 2 nil to Luton and a nil nil draw with Wycombe and Warbs on his way after that


Now I see a 1-2 win at Luton with Dykes and Austin Scoring

Then a 4 nil thumping of Wycombe and Warbs remaining for the rest of the season.

Future results sufficient to save us from the drop. Warbs getting a new contract ......................and the cycle of doom starting again next August as I cannot see us paying to keep Chaz

Hells bells we aint won a game for 10 games.
Lootown have lost 8 league games this season-we've lost 9, Lootown have won 8 league games this season whereas we've won a paltry bloody 4.
A draw for us tomorrow night wouldn't be a killer as such but it wouldn't be a lot of good either, stupidly it is a game we somehow have to win.
Charlie wont be the same player he was when he left us, all I can say about Charlie is he often got his shots on target of course they all didn't go in but mainly they were on target, hopefully that part of his game hasn't gone missing that and the fact he is good at his defensive work defending corners and free kicks coming into our penalty box as I posted on some other thread over the weekend.
He's always struggled to get up to speed when coming back from Injury, I was at Bournemouth when he come on after being out injured (play off season) and he wasn't at his best that afternoon.
Charlie Austin alone won't keep us up he aint gonna be no saviour but I'm delighted he's back I hope he has some sort of John Spencer impact.
Our current squad of players, the Manager and his coaching team have got us into this bloody mess It's about time 'they' pulled their fingers out and get us out of it.
Pissed off reading about us playing well but not winning and our so called bad luck, load of bolox.

The Lootown game will be tough at their place, I hope we stink the bloody place out and steal a win.

Our Manager is a dead Man walking at the moment.

Hey ho--whatever--nothing ever changes.

What a difference a year makes - we totally expected to smash them last season.

Charlie 11/2 to score 1st, same price to score last and 23/10 to score anytime.

Amazingly Bonne and Dykes are exactly the same prices.

We're the outsiders at just over 2/1

I am going for a 2-1 win with Dykes getting the first, Luton pulling it back and Charlie to get the winner.

Followed by a 2-0 home win against Wycombe with Chair and Barbet getting the goals.....you heard it here first

Charlie played 45 mins for WBA the previous weekend and therefore should be fit enough to start but maybe only for an hour as we will need him again on Saturday.

I was impressed by Thomas when he came on at the weekend and depending on Balls fitness I would like like to see a 3 of Chair, Thomas and LTC. Small but industrious and all good ball players.

Thought we played well against Fulham, reckon it will perk ‘em up a bit. Luton 0. Rangers 1

Warburton needs to avoid defeat against Luton and then beat Wycombe to keep his job. I'm more confident with Charlie on board but obviously the other deficiencies in our squad persist and won't be resolved by tomorrow. Really don't understand why Willock has been frozen out recently. We need to start this match on the front foot and get in front because we've all seen what happens if we get to half-time level. I'll be optimistic and say 2-1 to us with Charlie showing our forwards how to finish with a brace.

After Wycombe y’say, but the oracle that is Tomtit 75 says he’s off if we belly up at Luton. Do keep up.

It would be sooooooooooooo Warburton to leave Austin on the bench, introduing him only for the final five minutes of a 3-1 defeat, and then spend the post match chatting sports science and time on the training ground

That would be seriously annoying if we don't start Austin tomorrow night. He played 45mins against Arsenal didn't he? You'd think he could manage an hour against Luton.

There is no way Charlie is starting IMO.He did play most if not all the second half against Arsenal and had a chance to score with a snap shot and could not get up to a cross late on.Not saying he cant jump he was being held down it looked like .
The downside is pretty obvious he is not able to go from our box defending to their box shooting right now either from fitness issues or injury recovery issues .
He should spring on 10 minutes into the second half after watching how things are going then stay high and try to poach one .

Luton's recent home record is seriously good. Personally I'd take a battling, confidence-building point here if I knew it would be followed up by a relatively comfortable win vs Wycombe (yeh, yeh, I know...).

I'm cautiously optimistic, which means absolutely nothing.

If, and that's a big IF we can string two or three wins together it will change our season completely. Hopefully tomorrow is the start of that run.

2-0 QPR.

Yep, only two home losses, the second of which on Oct 31st.

They're 9 points ahead of us. It's going to be a tough game and if we do win it will be a very good result.

Poll: Come on then, let's have it.
