Depends on how much stock you put in Warnocks quotes that he was going to try and convince Clayton to be available

Suppose it also depends on the reason he missed the last game.

Hopefully Britt doesn't repeat his performance from the game at the Riverside....I still can't understand how he missed those two chances...especially the first.....time to redeem yourself...

I thought that Warnock had decided before the last game that Clayton wasn't going to play a part and told him he could therefore miss the game but that he'd probably be available for the final game if Warnock decided to select him?

I thought Clayton was dealing with a 'family issue'.  Warnock said something about that at the weekend, but there was no detail and therefore we have no idea what it actually means.

From the warm-ups looks like we are lining up with a back 4.

Warnock said: "I saw both Adam and Ravel yesterday and said to them that they needn’t be involved, but he (Clayton) would be available on Wednesday if I wanted him.

“He was doing something family-wise, and I said to him, ‘That’s okay’. But I think he’ll be available for Wednesday if I want him to be."

The manager said: “We had a chat yesterday, and I decided it was OK for him to miss the game. His contract is up, and I’m sure it will be discussed with everybody else’s contracts who are up."

Interesting that Warnock hasn’t started Wing yet. I think he was hyped this year and has obviously scored some decent goals but overall contribution not enough.

Probably because of what he saw when he came on as a substitute. Can't remember what game it was, but he came on as a sub and kept passing the ball to the other team

I see Pears is dropped to the bench again? Guess he blew his chance?

Yet another flip in formation.. seems to be every game under warnock, even more so than it was under woodgate 

Howson is suspended, Pears had a bit of a mare last time out and he has gone with Britt over Roberts how does that constitute a flip?

To emphasise the point Warnock has only named 6 subs, he couldn't flip even if he wanted to. By all means criticise him when and where its due but its a bit harsh when he can't even name a full bench and one of those six who is named is a teenager.

He later said:

Quote

On Saturday, Warnock said the veteran midfielder missed the match for personal reasons but in his pre-match press conference, he admits that Clayton has yet to commit to playing against Wednesday.

The 31-year-old is out of contract though reportedly signed a waiver to play in this month’s remaining Championship fixtures.

Asked about Clayton’s availability, Warnock said: “I will speak to Adam. He wasn’t available but I’m going to speak to him later on today about that.”

Yeah, that was why I said assuming it was Warnock who made the decision because I don't think it's quite clear either way.  I don't think he'd have started tonight and I suspect he didn't want to be on the bench so possibly a bit of both.

    • My problem is not the title my problem is that we have people on here on complain about a lack of respect in some situations and not others.  Plenty of people on here wanted me banned for criticising a manager and some of those people show very little respect to others at the same time.  I think if this forum wants to be invited to club events and fans forums then: either the topic of discussion (and title should be constructive and respectful, Or let's be totally independent from the club.  I haven't been the one complaining about respect and asking for posters to be banned for the last 10 years on here. Lets have a free for all if you want it suits me.     
    • So you're absolutely 100% fine with the topic people are actually discussing in the thread, the same topic people have been discussing over the course of at least 2 years. No problems there at all, we've had numerous different levels of feelings on this as it's quite a broad topic, we discuss the benefits of his tenure as chairman and the mistakes he's made which have taken us from good positions to bad positions. And as with every discussion, you'll get some who are wholeheartedly for one side of the discussion or the other and are beyond reasoning with, that is not something new in any form of discussion on this forum either. Your entire problem with this appears to be with the thread title and the use of the word abolish. So I say we abolish you. Do you care? I suspect you actually don't because I also suspect you recognise that it's a joke. I don't literally want you forcefully removed from the forum. Just as I suspect nobody wants Gibson literally taken to the gallows, to the guillotine, burnt alive, whatever you are taking from this word. You recognise it's something made in jest and still have a problem with it. I suspect even club officials who read this forum are aware it's a bloody joke, mate.
    • 6 or 7 bottles of it and you'll have a banging headache that makes you wish you were abolished! 
    • You won't be the first person to ask for that on here!
