Whether you/we like it or not I would imagine that Hoskins will be a certainty after his goal scoring cameo/performance on Saturday through the middle. Itís telling that Austin went for him as replacement for van veen and not Long.

Iím not sure about Barnett and Taylor either . Maybe Poole should play instead of Barnett .

It seems we are now onto our 3rd manager this season who prefers Barnett to Poole.

Hoskins through the middle is a different proposition to Hoskins wide .
He is a threat playing deep if we play that system .
Itís his finishing that has been the problem there but goals breed confidence .
To play him behind Long would mean dropping JJOT back into deeper midfield . Iím not saying thatís a bad thing ...,,

I too would rather see Poole than Barnett, but think Leon is there on experience.

Although, as weíve seen with Taylor and Barnett...both are susceptible to at least one major unforced error a match! Easy to say now, but a wily Jason Taylor type DM in front of the centre backs would have helped us pick up a few more points this season. On Saturday we need JJOT to get a big meaty challenge in early doors (a la Shrewsbury at home) to lift the crowd.

Aaron Pierre canít be far off a return now?

Big meaty challenge yes, but followed up with WWF, no

I have said it (for most of the season) that Grimes and JJOT should have been swapped; JJOT in front of the back four and Grimes in the more advanced creative position without having to worry about what's going on behind him.  Which would allow him to provide the ammunition and killer balls for our wider players and those through the middle running off him.  (See his advanced position to supply Hoskins on Saturday)
JJOT would naturally be a forward threat when able to do so from DM.

Pierre is just as much a liability I'm afraid. At least 2 new centre backs are required if we go down.

I thought Austin said that Poole was ill on Saturday - having said that he probably would still have gone with Barnett against bury for the experience factor (even though heís always got a clanger in him) and the fact that he used to play for them. Iíd still be tempted to go with Poole at defensive midfield but I wouldnít imagine Austin will change it, the most interesting selection will be where he plays Hoskins - will it be through the middle where he impressed on Saturday or will he shunt him wide to accommodate crooks.

Get a win against Plymouth then we will have real momentum. We will then take full allocation to Walsall feeling the escape is on. Win that then what a final game of the season! My glass is spilling over  Cheesy

When selecting centre halves I think you also have to consider who is left / right footed .
If Taylor plays , I think the natural partner is Barnett or Pierre whereas Poole is right footed .
It would be great to have Pierre back but I suspect itís a choice between Barnett or Turnbull .
Three at the back now seems to have been abandoned !

Barnett is right footed isn't he? Pierre and Turnbull are our left footed centre backs

The same Pierre that was consistently performing at league 2 level and had a trial at a championship club before we signed him?

I don't think we have seen enough of him this season to form a valid opinion to be honest.

He was quite flaky to begin with, but had just started to show good form before getting injured.

I agree we should give him plenty more time before making a judgement, I for one will be glad to have him back when we start next season.

I'm sure he'll be better in L2 next season and would certainly keep him on, but there's a reason he's never player higher than L2 before signing for us, and also why the Championship club passed on him this summer.

You are right that we haven't seen enough of him yet, but from what I've seen he has made a few clangers (which is what I was replying to in the first place - not calling him a poor footballer).

I'm struggling to find any optimism about Plymouth. They always beat us at Sixfields and combine that with them striving for the play offs and our recent form I can't see beyond an away win.

I hope I'm wrong obviously as it would set up the Walsall game as huge but I think our season will be over at 16:45 saturday.

1400 Argyle in the away section, some talk of them coming into home areas!
Also think they are beaming game back to their Barn at Home Park (as they did for Oxford Utd game, where allocated 1800).

Also (Barton noteing comparative travel prices for Posh) they are bringing a 'Senior' coach...£34 Inc breakfast!
