We will beat both Pompey and Wycombe. One of those will be the usual sh*thouse 1-0 road win against the run of play but the other will be one of those wild, one-off 4-3-type games when everything goes in, which will lead us to believe we have finally found our touch and that every game is going to be like this from now on. (We haven't and none of them will be.)
Gillingham at home and Lincoln away... Both underwhelming draws. Boo count higher against Gills.
Bonus def info ... Exeter away in the EFL Champions League. Start a front 3 of Morris, Folami and Sears, with Donacien as a makeshift central attacking midfielder and Judge slotting in at right back. Holy, Norris and Przybek play 30 mins each. Go 1-0 up. Spurn a hatfull of chances. Georgiou replaces Sears with 25 mins to go, but never makes it onto the pitch. Concede late equaliser. Lose on pens.
If the OP's intent was to generate a thread of blokes talking about prostate cancer, then it's a genius piece of disease-awareness trolling. Well played Phoenix.
If not ... Bianca's badge has resulted in a thread of blokes talking about prostate cancer (this one), which is exactly what it was supposed to do. It's not about who is wearing the badge, but who might see it. Sky Sports has a large audience of at-risk males, so it's an ideal target market for this campaign. Well played Sky/Bianca/prostate cancer awareness folks.
Agreed. Aside from a handful of essential players, this past week has shown that it doesn't really matter who we put in the starting line up as long as there is a bit of balance and a formation that suits the personnel. I love the idea that we are progressing as a squad, and not just a first XI. It just feels more like a proper longterm strategy. And like you say, rotation keeps everyone happy, rested, and match fit. And hopefully the injuries and suspensions that we'll inevitably pick up over the course of the season won't have such a devastating effect as in previous years.
If you have 10 mins to spare, you must check out her diary of the EFL deadline day last week. It's absolutely stunning the way she reacts throughout the day and how she puts it all together. It really puts you in the shoes of a devoted fan whose club might not make it past 5pm. The last few mins will send shivers down your spine.
Bit of a freak result. Cov had 24 shots to 5, 68% possession, and 2 goals disallowed. Bolton had 2 or 3 senior players in the team that day I think. They also had a manager and an assistant mgr of course.
