No wonder our football has been so dull the last few years when we've got 'sacrifice positivity' plastered on the dressing room wall...

Get better I suppose. Certainly looks like Warnock doesn’t rate him at all. Think he’ll be gone in January. 

On loan, perhaps. If Gibson sanctions a sale after giving the lad a new contract less than a year ago, he wants to give his head a wobble. Surely after this year so far, there's no chance anyone with any money comes in for him. I wouldn't welcome offers either, the lad came out of nowhere and there's a tenacity in his play that makes him perfect as a wing-back. I think it's mad that he can't get a game still. I wonder if he told Warnock that Santa isn't real.

Here's my contributory doodle:

If Roberts scores tonight you will win the competition by default 👍👍

I can see Coventry exploiting the space behind our wing-backs when they attack. Think Howson and Morsy will need to be vigilant of the runners they have from midfield too. 

I'm confident that we can win tonight, but (famous last words) I can see it being a struggle for large parts of the game tonight.

It’s great to have versatile players in the squad isn’t it @Neverbefore 👍

Good for the team if he can provide consistent performances in all of those positions no doubt, but he wasn't great at rwb. And I worry what it will do to his long term development for such a young player having to change his game every single week and not be able to concentrate his development in one area.

That'll make a nice change.

Akpom put a picture on his Instagram story immediately after Saturday’s game v Cardiff of him in a fancy car saying “London bound” so I’m imagining Warnock has always planned to give him a few days back home in London and not playing tonight. He has covered so much ground for us lately that he’ll have been at a very high risk of picking up a muscle injury if he played tonight. With Assombalonga and Roberts both now fit, this was probably the first time we could rest Akpom.

He will be fine. He’s a bloody good player already

We had a 2 week break just passed and he got taken off for the final 3rd of our last match. Theres no way I'm buying this is a complete rest for akpom, no one else requires it after 2 and a half games so he wouldnt either. From the bench maybe, but not altogether. He must be injured.
