    IPL 2019

    Happen to be in India this week for the start of the new IPL season. Some pretty eventful matches so far, but Jos Buttler has just been "Mankaded" by Ravi Ashwin, i.e. run out when backing up at the non-strikers end. Disgusting way to get a player out in my book, especially as Buttler was in no...

    Team For Swindon

    Interesting choice for the game at Swindon. Do we blood as many youngsters as possible, who it seems we will need to gain valuable experience for the coming season, or do we assemble our strongest team with the aim of generating some much-needed extra Cup revenue? With the injuries right now...

    Team For Walsall

    IMHO, no reason for MA to rush either Pratley or particularly Rhodes back, I guess Willock will play if fit. How sexy does that bench look :cool: Definitely expect Pratley to feature at some point, with a brief cameo from Rhodes at 2-0, with 10 minutes left:sorted: ---------Nelly---------...

    Team For Stockport????

    If the match was played tomorrow, we could name almost an entire "unavailable XI" Kev-Gayle-Dobbo-Framps Brooker-Skulason-Pratley-Tabby -----Fitz---Rhodes----- As it is, to make life a bit easier, I expect Kev & Brooker to have done puking by Saturday..... ----------Nelson----------...

    Team For Rotherham

    MA on Wednesday suggested that Kev O'C & Eddie The Hutch should be OK and available for Saturday. Just hope that our injury glut for the year is now on it's way to being done & dusted...... For Saturday, I'd say we're more desperate for a right back than a midfielder (just!), plus MA is very...

    Team For Forest????

    Seems that Martin Allen has had to make a key change or changes: http://www.brentfordfc.premiumtv.co.uk/page/News/NewsDetail/0,,10421~708433,00.html This tells me that Sam is out & we desperately need a centre back to deal with Eugene Dadi. Marcus by all acccounts didn't cover himself in glory...

    Sky TV Money For Play-Offs

I have read another thread indicating that all four Div 1 play-off games AND the Div1 final will be televised live by those champions of lower league football ;) , but...

    Team v Barnsley????

    The starting XI is more difficult with each match lately, desperately need to get Kev O'Connor &/or Jamie Lawrence back, they can cover so many positions. With the injury to Hargreaves, we are very short in central midfield. I think there are two options, either to play Rankin centrally...

    4-5-1 For Away Games??

    As an exile, I wasn't at the game las t Saturday, but the tactical change to 4-5-1, with the extra man in midfield seemingly kept one of the top sides in the division pretty much at arms' length on their own patch. This resulted in us securing a rare away win & from memory by a 2 goal margin...
