    Sinclair

    Pyke Nuttall

    Compared to 1st match of the season (for reference)

    Billson

    Pugh Davis Taft Thompson

    Bunn Kenyon Beestin Green

    No place for Burns IL but start the two new lads up front. I would play Burns with one or the other but the rest look about right.

    O’Malley is injured I think.

    Going to be an attacking line-up that is for sure because we actually have 2 strikers.

    Watson
    Matheson Onariase Delaney Lewis
    Grant
    Pugh Feeney Sinclair
    Nuttall Pyke

    That’s about right assuming O’Malley is injured and Beestin is not fully fit. Lewis has earned a go in his preferred position so 442 is another option if/When O’Malley is fit.

    Also Burns deserves to stay in and see how he goes with some support up front, so could start with Pyke on the bench.

    Can’t believe Pugh gets anywhere near the best 11.
    ” maybe Beestin when fit but i like Pugh’s box to box qualities)” when tranlated means runs around a lot with minimal effect.
    Watson
    Matheson Onariase Delaney Lewis (for now)
    Grant
    Feeney Beestin Sinclair (rotating throughout the match)
    Burns Nuttall
    Please bear in mind I have never seen Delaney or Nuttall play but I have seen the alternative in Delaneys case.
    Bench looks a bit thin without O’Malley, Hackney & Bunn.

    CT’s lineup is the one I’d go for (very much agree with the comments regarding Pugh, shouldn’t be anywhere near our best 11). If everyone is fit I still think Thompson is our best left back.

    Will leave it till I see what Keith serves up on Saturday, I see Taft is as popular as ever 😂 but he deffo needs a rest IMO, like till May.

    I said 4/4/2 might be an option with the players we have now. I think O’malley is close because he only had a tight hamstring.

    When he is fit it would be interesting because we could go

    Matheson Onariase Delaney O’Malley
    Feeney Beestin Grant Lewis
    Burns Nuttall

    Until O’Malley is up to speed, the line up which cassidy suggested is about right

    Matheson Onariase Delaney Lewis
    Grant
    Feeney Beestin Sinclair
    Burns Nuttall

    I know Hill does like a 4/4/2 with a big striker up front with umpteen crosses being slung in as he played like that religiously at Rochdale.

    Lewis is a natural left winger so don’t rule out a 4/4/2. I can’t for the life of me think why people would favour Pugh over a fit Beestin.

    I’m hoping our new signings are really good WG but we will probably still need a goalkeeper.

    Also when was the last time Beestin looked properly fit?

    What an arse !

    I didn’t feel the need to include the Gk, we only really have Watson in first team contention. I think that’s obvious.

    If you didn’t assume Watson would have been the keeper then I worry for you.

    Ha, I forgot about Burns, yes probably Burns in for Pyke/Nuttall.

    Still believe Pugh>Beestin for his B2B qualities. Grant won’t be that mobile and likes to sit deeper. I have read in the past that Grant prefers to play in a three so could rule out a 4-4-2.

    Pugh will help get us up the pitch. In terms of footballing ability Beestin is better than Pugh but with Pugh in CM we have a better balanced team and a better first 11.

    Calm yourself. Not a very good one I accept but a joke nonetheless.

    Mind you Collins is having a blinder down in Spalding according to the Twitter feed.

    Defense still looks pretty flimsy. With the honourable exception of Rory Watson.

    Burns has done enough so far to earn a start on Saturday IMO.

    Isn’t he our top goalscorer? In fact, depending on the team sent out, he could be our only goalscorer.

    Think Onarise has got one this season and you’d assume he’d start over Taft? Can’t think of many others though, you’re right.

    Taft is not going to be just playing for a contract but to find any club.
    If Delaney is match fit – must start.

    Taft has gone to shit. Delaney has to come in to partner Manny. I’d go Burns off Nuttall but going by comments from people who went last night, he supposedly looked way, way short of match fitness.

    Understandable though considering how long it is since he’s had a run of games. I suspect he’ll probably get 60 mins like last night for Pyke to come on.

    How match fit will Pyke be? Has he been playing many competitive games this season?

    16 matches mostly from the bench but has apparently played in their reserves regularly. I suspect he must be there match fit wise as he didn’t play a part last night.

    Think Sgt Wilson and Captain Mannering kept him pretty busy on the Home Guard assault course.

    In which case, start him and bring Nuttall on later

    I’d play Nuttall from the start personally as he’s only going to get fit with minutes and if he can pinch a few whilst not fully fit, all will be good. we could always bring Pyke on after 60 minutes.

    One thing about Pyke is that I keep reading is that he’s powerful, very quick, decent hold up play but can’t score for toffee. I hope that changes here !

    Let’s hope we’re not paying him in toffee then.

    We’ve needed a player to hold the ball up front in all 28 games and never looked like having one.
    Those are the guys who create for others, make defenders worried and set up the chances.
    The worry is that a number of players in our squad have never seen this phenomenon before. They need to be taught what it entails and to start getting used to this – and bloomin’ quickly!

    Burns has shown he could snaffle up those chances if created
