It would probably be a chance to rest a couple of players. Pretty sure Kelly will come in for Lumley. Another chance to rest Manning, so assuming we're playing four at the back Wallace again, and Kane, who haven't been overworked this season. Leistner maybe needs a break and may have a strain which leaves Grant Hall probably having to play. Could we try out Conor Masterson in a Cup game? If not Cameron could fill in at centre back.
Amos and Ball should be okay in midfield. Then Pugh, Chair, BOS with Jordan up front. So resting Eze and Nahki Wells.
I know we get annoyed about resting players for Cup games but wondering what people think about resting a couple of them? Chair looked rejuvenated after his mini break. Especially since Swansea are in a play off position and therefore likely to rest a couple of their best players.
I know the parent club can recall players but can we also send players back in January? Of our loanees I'd keep Hughill, Wells, Amos (who's starting to look good after injury), and send back Matt Smith and Mlakar, neither of whom look like they could hit the ground running at this level, which is really what you need for loan players.
I'd replace them with a DM and a right back and use our own u23s if necessary instead of Smith and Mlakar as I don't think they'd be worse (although I'm happy to be corrected on that).
All this is provided we don't lose Eze in January.
If this link doesn't work, I'd appreciate someone posting the link to his YouTube post, as many of us have children/adult children. Really admire him for speaking about the issue of young boys and men taking their lives. I've got two boys who are now young men and I just can't imagine anything worse.
If you remember he's the Bolton fan that came to KPMS last season and did a funny vlog about the match. RIP his friend Zac.
Last season we lost six out of our first ten league matches and drew one, albeit we lost against some difficult sides, including two of the teams that eventually went up. But still we only got ten out of a possible thirty.
So far, we've got four out of six.
What do people think we can get for the same period this season.
Our fixtures are:
Bristol City A Swansea H Wigan H Sheffield W A Luton H Millwall A WBA H Cardiff A
I reckon we can get a further twelve points here. What's the view?
Anyone involved in this tonight? My son played and had a fantastic time playing with Andy Sinton and Rufus Brevett and against Don Shanks and Wayne Fereday. Anyone in the afternoon match? Apparently Shittu and Rowlands played. It's not cheap but he'll never forget his time on the hallowed turf.
