I just can't see him starting the Longmeister and VV up top.

Maybe Van Veen can play just behind and cause a bit of havoc like JJOT has been?

Please show me an example this season where I have actually criticized somebody for not going - happy to apologize.

Rochdale were below average no better. We made them look good. Fair play to Keith hill tho, the way he shackled jj went a long way to winning them the game

To come up with that opinion seems to suggest that again you were not there?

It's not one poor game in five that's the problem though is it?
I've been unconvinced by JFH since the beginning. He's got the biggest budget of any Cobblers manager in my lifetime and we're still sh*te. Tactically he's VERY hit and miss and Saturday merely served to illustrate what poor decision making he possesses.
I gave him the benefit of the doubt before the transfer window but he's been backed by the board and now it's time to deliver.
So you didnt see Blackburn , MK , Southend and Bradford games then ?

Very poor reviews of the lad of the coventry fans site, I will wait to see him before making judgement, but it's not encouraging

You haven't been to the last 6 games or more.

Not direct "criticism" but certainly using it to imply that your opinion is better than someone else's.

Anyway, lets stick to the football.

I see Jimmy has stated that we will add energy to the side this weekend .
I think he will play McWilliams in midfield with Moloney right back .
Van Veen up front and rest either Long or JJOT .
Hilda may not be in the squad and replaced by Powell .
Changes are needed and no one can complain at being dropped after last week’s showing .
My team would be

            O’Donnell

Moloney.   Taylor.  Turnbull.    Bunney

Ariyibi      Grimes.   McWilliams.     Foley.
           
                   JJOT
 
                 Van Veen

I do quite like the look of this, JFH is right extra energy required and Mcwilliams gives us that. It maybe time for Long to have a rest too.

Is Van Veen as mobile as Long? Only problem I could seew with this is we end up a bit slow and "hoofbally" like we were with Rico/Revs up top. Suppose it could work if Bunney/Foley and Moloney/Ariyibi offer support quickly out wide for them.

I see no reason why we should be any more hoof ball with VV up front as opposed to Long .
If he plays VV and Long , he would have to drop JJOT unless VV played wide .

So a person who hasn't watched a movie's opinion is as valid as one who has?

I try to avoid commenting on individual performances where I can on account of never being there, although my temper does get the better of me on occasion. Therefore I do have some sympathy with my fellow non attendees. In my case I put it down to staying up till 4am in an alcohol induced haze. Although baring in mind pre match I also advocated 5 at the back against Rochdale, I appear to not know what I’m on about before the game whilst stone cold sober either?

That's the exact point though. If you are there, you are witnessing with your own eyes and coming up with your own interpretation of what you are seeing.

If you watch on Ifollow you are still seeing the game, but only certain parts of it depending on where the camera is focused and zoomed at any given time. I have seen cameramen miss goals on many occasions.

For all those who listen on the radio, they are spoon fed one person's interpretation of what the commentaor is actually witnessing. I think therefore that radio listeners are more likely to have the same opinion as each other, because they did not interpret themselves and were simply handed an other's own interpretation.

For me i give more credit to the opinions of those that were there. It goes like this -  There in person>watched on ifollow>listened on the radio

Having said that i don't understand why evers keep calling out posters about whether they attend or not, and all opinions are valid, but for me some carry more weight than others.

Agreed. Regularly we read that those listening on RN abuse or praise players based on what they are listening to, sometimes these are found to be diametrically opposed to the opinions of those who attended and begin contributing, once in a position to do so.  It's almost as if they have listened or watched a totally different match. 
(But then again, sometimes those who have attended also give the impression that they have turned up at the wrong ground and watched a completely different game!!)

... but I don’t call people for not going ; how can I when I miss quite a few! It’s an argument introduced by some with a chip on their shoulder. A good example of this is Rauldinho a page or two back. He goes to more away games than I do!
