We now have 3 games in 7 days 15:20 - Nov 10 with 2031 viewsgeg1992

Wednesday 20th - Lincoln
Saturday 23rd - Blackpool
Tuesday 26th - Wycombe

The 2 league games are very tough ones too. Surely we will put out a very weak team against Lincoln?

Be positive. Our first game, after an international break isn't a league game.

Wolves are ahead against Villa and have plàyed nine more games than their opponents.

We've got midweek games for four weeks in succession.

Let's say we beat Lincoln, then draw in the 2nd round. Add the second round of the Leasing.com tie into the mix then I reckon that'll be midweek games for six weeks in a row in the run up to Xmas. Then throw in the rearranged game with Oxford, and should we get through to the FA Cup 3rd round another rearranged game Vs Fleetwood and more Leasing.com games it'll be a busy few months.

I can't see Lambert doing anything other than fielding weakened teams in the cups.

good job we have a big squad then. The amount of bedwetting about a cup replay is off the charts.

Exactly. And people seem to only be thinking about the short term. It's in March and April when the size of our squad will pay off IF we have ready-made replacements for all positions who've been given some game time.

Lambert's been here before. When he took over Norwich they were a mess and in the end they strolled to the L1 title. He got the best out of some players who had been underperforming and added others along the way, exactly what he's trying to do now, but we've had a superb start.

Why are Woolfenden and Downes such good players now? They got game time out on loan. Playing fringe players in the cups isn't as good a method but it's the same philosophy.

Apparently the Wednesday is outside the international break so I assume we can use players who are back, although I'm not sure how many that might be the case with.

To be fair, by the time the Blackpool match comes around the majority of the first XI will have had a two and a half week rest!!

Poll: Would love to see one of our midfield contribute 10+ goals. Who is most likely.

This is what happens when you try and second guess how you’ll do. Football isn’t like that, especially in the cup. We had a home draw against a team struggling for confidence. Start with a strong side, try and put it to bed early and then take off your best players.

Then you don’t have to worry about fitting in another match just before a key league game.

Same under MM where we had winnable games at home Vs Preston, Portsmouth and Lincoln, only to end up with long trips on a Tuesday night and defeats.

Ironically the only year we seemed to take it seriously was 14/15 at Southampton, only Skuse missing that day.

Suddenly we can see a positive to Lambert's squad rotation policy that he can make changes for both games with everyone theorethically up to speed.

Will make little odds on that front as the team at Lincoln will be pretty much what we saw on Saturday, perhaps even slightly weaker.

Not condoning the policy, although I can see why PL and virtually every manager we've had for the last decade has done it, but the point he made after the game does seem to have been overlooked. The 10 changes was more to give the fringe players minutes so they're up to speed than resting the regulars, although that will have come into it to some degree, of course.

6 of one, half a dozen of the other surely?

We now have 3 second string games in a row and the fist team will need minutes after that!

I'm guessing tomorrow might be as near as a third-string game as we can get away with.

Seems a bit ridiculous innit. I hope we don't play our next league match like we usually do after "first team" extended breaks. I guess Lambert would argue it's all part and parcel of his general rotation policy but I still feel we've lucked out more than usual in the league, even with our "strongest" eleven.
