UTFB! Saville and Johnson excellent tonight. Wood up front - a clear message to Gibson and Bausor 

Progress. Unmistakeable progress. We're getting more solid defensively and more slick in our passing. The signs are more positive than they have been for a while. And Roberts could be immense for us i

I think it's more just a case of him playing back in his favoured position. He clearly can't play left side of either a back 4 or a back 5. When he's played central or on the right he goes back to loo

That's my point, Bola did nothing wrong then out after 1 game. Johnson has been the worst player on the pitch 6 or 7 times and hes still getting starts.

I'm agreeing with you haha. Just saying he didn't stand out as really good but did the job quietly and effectively. Deserved the chance to show he can do it consistently. Especially considering were just back from an international break, no one should be tired - apart from Saville and mcnair.

Nobody should be tired yet, sure. But we have 5 games in the space of 2 weeks (just about) so I think it's a bit unfair to say players have been "dropped" when it's far more likely that he's just rotating the squad.

Team screams out putting men behind the ball and hoping for a set piece or bit of magic from Roberts or Akpom.

I would of liked to see Tavernier and Roberts playing together in behind the Akpom but unfortunately Warnock won't come away from the wing back position.

Not his fan at all, but I hope Spence comes in and performs and bounces back from being out the side recently. No excuses tonight as for me he's playing in his best position.

Rotating the squad is only a useful tactic when youre still picking up the wins. Im not convinced thats going to happen tonight with that lineup, but let's see!

Although I hate the line-up, one thing I will say is Bristol's midfield 3 includes Paterson and Weimann*, so I'm thinking the midfield battle is a potential area we could get the upper hand on. 

*Although both did play in midfield in the game at the Riverside last season, and we got shown up then.

When is the last time we controlled a midfield? We've stiffled midfields for years but i don't think we've actually  dictated play since leadbitter and clayts. Maybe the first couple of mikel games before he got turned in a pulis midfielder.

I don't mean control, just think the midfield battle is ours to take in terms of winning the ball and the physical challenge of it. If that makes sense? 

Edit: I suppose in a round about way I do mean control, but in a sense of not allowing Bristol to dictate or control the midfield.

    • I'm rather excited to see todays starting 11. It'd be rather refreshing to see him 'mix it up' a bit, by throwing in a few of the young lads to see how they deal with the championship. Not just todays game, but the remaining fixtures. At least then NW gives himself a more clear indication if they need loan time elsewhere or if they can make it next season, amongst the starting 11. Gives us less to do in the transfer market, and may help us steer from throwing money about wastefully.
    • This is hardly encouraging considering we are going to need two “Striker wise, we’ve probably been looking for 12 months – and we’re still no nearer getting one.”
    • I think there's a clause in his contract that states he's to blame for every goal we concede...even if he isn't playing. Apart from the ones that are obviously Bettinelli's fault. 😉  
    • Good point - probably the year after then. God its like discussing how much longer Warnock is going to go on for, isn't it? 😁   Fair point. A big part of longevity and how long you maintain your physical fitness, mental faculties etc. is down to how active you are and how you exercise the grey matter. She should probably start doing a couple of laps of Sandringham every morning, Captain Tom style. Followed by a leisurely afternoon of sudoku, then an intense evening session of Call of Duty. 😉
