I see that they COULD be at home to Spurs in the FA Cup. Their replay against Millwall is next Tuesday so, hopefully, none of them will want to get injured on Saturday  Smiley
    The ideal scenario for us is that they take it easy on Saturday and then get knocked out by Millwall, thus depriving them of extra cash  Cool
A bit harsh, Roger. They're hardly Man City!!!!

Easy to see why Bunney was top of the assist league over at Rochdale. 2 games 2 assists so far. Hopefully he can put on a big performance against his former club whilst Berto gets the majority of 90 minutes to torment his replacement.

Looking forward to this match. You'd assume he'd go with a similar line up to the previous couple of games, but with Hoskins looking out of form I think one of the new wingers will start in his place with Foley playing in front of Bunney.

Sorry, cut and paste hasn't come out well. But its enough to show that Rochdale are not just 23rd in the league, they are 24th on current form. Coupled with their FA Cup 'distraction' anything other than a win for us on Saturday would be considered a huge setback.

That said, they may will be deeming this as potentially their last chance salon game. Win it and they are back in the running (factoring in games in hand), lose it and it will be very very difficult for them to stay up. So we have to be very focused, very 'up for it' and come up with the right blend of 'respecting them and going for them' if that makes sense.

Id revert back to the starting line up we went with against MK but replace Hoskins with one of the two on loan wingers, whichever one is most fit to start. *

*unless we sign some amazing player before 11pm tomorrow of course!

I canít see JFH starting with Hilda in this game .
He has traditionally been a cautious manager , particularly when we need to win and are only just out the drop zone .
He may just start with Powell ahead of Hoskins but I wouldnít be surprised if he reverted back to the side that beat MK with foley on the left .
Everyone wants to see the exciting players on loan but Iím not sure JFH trusts them enough to start .

i would trust them both over powell, as they both have some quality going forward - powell does not.

that said, hilda hasnt looked fit so maybe the former MK fella will come in.

or as always, he might go solid and unspectacular with foley and bob on as the widemen.

If my memory doesn't fail me, Powell was one of our best players just before his injury. Think he'll be a straight swap for Hoskins.

He was looking particularly sharp at Oxford before being forced off, however it took him about 3 months to get up to speed and deliver the performance level required.

We can't afford for him to take that long again.

By all accounts Poole had a good game at Blackburn and Bunney is looking a real asset on the left side of midfield. So I would think same again unless he wants to chance one of the loanee wingers in place of Hoskins.

Strange that both Powell and Bowditch were looking good against a full back Oxford describe as their 'worst ever defender'.

Powell has had about a game and a half where he's looked good. Hoping Berto and Ariyibi can prove to be vast improvements.

In his interview at Blackburn I noticed JFH did a speech on how good Ash Taylor was, followed up by how well the full backs did. I therefore thought it notable that Poole, the third of the four defenders, was not included in the praise. Maybe it was only an oversight, or maybe Turnbull will be back in there, or maybe a new defender is on the way.

Poole was at fault for the goal and JFH said as much .
He had a good game otherwise but mistakes cost points .

He could have done better but Bunney was the player at fault for passing it their player who set up the goal and was lost a bit in the build up to it as well

I think that we should announce NFL style offense & defense line ups, given we have about 40 players in the squad.

Too soon for Van Veen to come into the side? I reckon it will be either the same side who beat Bradford or:

----------O'Donnell-------------

Facey---Taylor---Poole---Turnbull

Crooks--Grimes--O'Toole--Bunney

--------Van Veen---Long--------

So Hoskins losing out for the more unnatural Crooks on the wing.

Facey   Taylor   Turnbull  Bunney

                 Grimes

       O'Toole  Crooks  Foley

           Van Veen    Long

A little narrow but the full back can provide good width. Plenty of options on the bench if we need to change the game

Van Veen cutting inside, in that video he's scored a number of goals like that.
