Nice to see Clayts stay in with Leadbitter back too. Listened to his interview this week and didn't realise he was injured when Pulis came in, not sure if that was publicised and I just missed it or if it was kept quiet cause I don't remember it!

It was said a couple of times that he was injured. But many people believe it was an ‘injury’ to cover his imminent exit.

Really happy he is starting today.

Ah yes I do vaguely remember now, the it's an "injury" angle.

The bench looks solid too.

A young defender and an experienced one

A young attacking midfielder and an old experienced one

A young forward/winger and a proven striker.

 

Options for every eventuality there.

 

So

Cranie can come on for Downing with 15 left. Ha

So did Shotton though so not much of an argument there.

 

Well, Shotton is scooled to cover for Adama, as some of us read in an interview shared here today... So I think for sure Shotton stays on the RB.. Be it Fry og be it Cranie to replace Ayala... IF he is not playable.... We'll see

 

Literally anyone could play RB for Adama if the role is to "don't go past him" it's not rocket science

 

I mean going by what Shotton said the other day, it's not as simple as that and it's not just "don't go past him".

 

So he also has to tell Traore when to come back and cover, you think that's a job that specifically requires Shotton out there to do? Come off it man, you could stick Cranie in at RB and I'd put money on him doing an equally good job because it's not that *** difficult.

 

I'm surprised anyone would sit and say anything involving Traore's discipline could be an easy job that anyone could do. It's taken a year and a half to get the best out of him by the coaches, some of whom have insisted he plays on the side the manager is on to maintain that discipline. I think you're being very, very naive to suggest it is a job that simply anyone can pick up and do as well as maintaining their own responsibilities on the pitch.

    • It wasn't just a few minutes. I'm pretty sure he got more time than Bahamboula did on the pitch for us didn't he? That was someone who seemed to have the consensus of the fans that he was worth a go for the small fee we had to pay. Paterson didn't look influential, he didn't look fit, he was bang average. 
    • Given Warnock's apparent opinions on fitness and his performances in those friendlies, I'm not at all shocked that we didn't sign him and I'm still relatively glad we didn't. He's not setting the league alight every week just as his team isn't and really, whose place does he take in the team? Watmore? Tav? Hernandez? Jones? I'm not sure I'd swap any of those players with Paterson.  Sounds like he was influential today and scored a cracking goal? Good for him. But he's done that before we had the chance to sign him too, not sure why it would change many opinions on whether we should have brought him in. 
    • So any of those players could have been sat on our bench yesterday but instead we only named six subs, including the non-league player who hasn't looked ready for this level, who gets in for no other reason than Warnock signed him.  No wonder they called themselves Warnock's rejects.   It must be utterly deflating to play for this club unless you're one of the favoured ones.  One of the least professionally run football clubs in the country.
