Do we keep the same line up for this game (if you ignore Checkatrade)? I would be looking to go with:

                     Ingram

       Moloney Ash Pierre Buchs

                 McWilliams JJ

          Powell McGugan Grimes

                      Long

Crooks in for Powell if we think he can cope with a full 90 and tracking back to help out Moloney when needed. Otherwise summoned from the bench. We could swap JJ and McGugan if we are looking to go long, but I think JJ is better winning the ball from deep.

I'd go with this. Crooks on for McGugan if he tires. Hoskins can come on for Powell if he's useless... Start utilising our excessive squad options to full benefit.

Itís interesting to see how everyone tries to combine Crooks , Grimes , McGugan and JJOT into a midfield together ( including me ) .
The reality is that one of them will probably miss out at Oxford because there is not enough pace amongst them. Also , I think you can only have one of them as a holding player ( JJOT is best suited ) and you need legs and energy alongside them in one of Poole , McWilliams or even Foley .
I think he will select Powell , and leave Crooks out for balance .
The other thing is that Rico has a great record at Oxford , but I suspect Long will quite rightly start .

It is a tough one, and I agree that one of them will miss out. With Poole missing it makes things a bit easier as McWilliams is an easy pick in the middle of the park for me then. Rico is set to come on and net the winner late again, would **** love this.  Grin

Has anyone got any advice on parking at this

I have parked in Blackbird in the past. Its OK, as long as you dont block anyones drive way. However, be prepared for obnoxious individuals on your way back, after the match, over the river.
Having said that, I can recall one pub, in a housing estate near the Manor Ground, typical estate pub, rough as fcuk, **** beers, totally unwelcome, we went into "the lounge" by mistake. Only to find three people sitting there with some triangular sandwiches, and a bit of cake in front of them. Yep, it was a wedding reception,(no guests), and the best man wanted to take us all on. All five feet two of him. We smiled, and declined. I genuinely felt sorry for the bride, as she had no female friends with her.
The bar was no better, as I was immediately challenged by some scrote, as to wether or not I was selling drugs, as this was "his patch". Welcome to Poxford. What a **** hole.

I have spent a lot of my early years in The Melbourne. Back when big Barry was the landlord, and the place was full of nurses, from St Crispin.
One time, back in the early eighties, after a pub jolly to Huntingdon races, we got jumped on by a load of Cambridge fans. It was no contest. Male psychiatric nurses, can certainly look after themselves!  Grin
