An away match on top of an unnecessary replay
at 21:14 12 Nov 2019

Squad rotation is all well and good but Lambert’s given us an extra match and seemingly an away trip just because he doesn’t want to play some of the first XI in any cup games whatsoever.

The midfield lacks balance. Interesting the defence, Huws and Georgiou are playing two games in a row. Is Nolan injured?

So a replay it is
at 17:01 9 Nov 2019

The last thing we wanted was an additional match but we’ve got one now. It’ll give the reserves another run out I guess. At least we’ll have some interest in the Second Round draw.

Interesting team line ups in the FA Cup early kick off

At a glance Sunderland have only made one change from their last league match and Gillingham three. Taking it seriously?

Line up for the Cups
at 11:06 6 Nov 2019

Considering we have Colchester in the Trophy followed by, presumably, an eleven day break I’d
prefer to see us put out a strong XI against Lincoln:

Norris, Woolfenden, Garbutt, Wilson, Chambers, Rowe, Georgiou, Skuse, Downes, Jackson, Norwood

We can then rotate players for the Colchester match:

Holy, Donacien, Kenlock, Wilson, Nsiala, Dobra, Edwards, Huws, Nolan, Judge, Keane

Unfortunately I fear we won’t see our strongest XI against the Imps and could easily go out at the first hurdle - again.

Team for Tuesday?
at 12:05 3 Nov 2019

I’d go with:

Holy
Donacien - Woolfenden - Chambers - Garbutt
Rowe - Skuse - Huws - Georgiou
Jackson - Norwood

Substitutes: Norris, Wilson, Edwards, Judge, Nolan, Dozzell, Keane

If KVY is fit put him in for Donacien. I have to wonder of Lambert would be more inclined to bring in Wilson and move Woolfenden to right back, though.

Is it time to go back to basics?
at 23:11 23 Oct 2019

A flat 4-4-2 which offers us width and a steady influence across the field? As unpopular as this may be (and against the grain of the constant chopping and changing) I'd consider bringing Kenlock back into the line up, pushing Garbutt into midfield.

Holy
Vincent-Young - Woolfenden - Chambers - Kenlock
Edwards - Skuse - Downes - Garbutt
Jackson - Norwood

At home Skuse could possibly be replaced by Huws or Nolan though my real concern is we're losing the midfield battle at the moment all too easily.

It may not be the prettiest line up on paper but it was effective early on. With the 3-5-2 we seem unable to play out from the back - particularly if KVY isn't on form - and with a 4-4-2 diamond we lack width.

"Good teams bounce back"
at 22:34 23 Oct 2019

That's all I can hear Lambert say now and it's hardly a good comment to recall after what happened tonight.

I thought the line up was wrong and said so on here; our midfield still looked weak and we lacked width. To be fair we started the game well, with an early chance and it seemed like the cobwebs had been shaken off from the visit to Stanley.

The opening goal seemed to kill us. And after that we seemed pathetically clueless as to how to break Rotherham down. There was no variation of play, no attempt to change angels or stretch the defence, very little overlapping from the full backs after Edwards and Georgiou were introduced. We were a one dimensional long ball team, which was Rotherham's meat and drink.

Saturday is massive for both Southend and Ipswich, far bigger for the latter than it should be but the wheels seem to be falling off and we need to quickly put them back on again.

Hopefully we should be able to field our strongest available XI v Lincoln
at 19:40 21 Oct 2019

The game's followed by a Trophy match at Colchester and, presumably, an international break where we'll postpone the scheduled fixture (and gift a win the following week to Blackpool). There's no reason why we can't put together a strong XI and give it a real go.

Line up for Wednesday with just Wilson returning
at 14:34 20 Oct 2019

In other words, if KVY, Downes and Norwood are still out injured.

I'd go with:

Holy

Donacien
Garbutt
Chambers
Woolfenden

Edwards
Georgiou
Skuse
Huws

Jackson
Keane

Subs: Norris, Kenlock, Wilson, Rowe, Nolan, Judge, Simpson

Without KVY we do not have the players available to play a wing back formation so need to switch to a flat back four again. Skuse and Huws should have enough about them to control the middle but we desperately need two up top.

If they are fit, bring them all back in:

Holy - Woolfenden, Chambers, Wilson - KVY, Garbutt, Skuse, Downes, Huws - Norwood, Jackson

Holy
Vincent-Young
Garbutt
Chambers
Woolfenden
Skuse
Downes
Nolan
Judge
Norwood
Jackson

Substitutes: Norris, Donacien, Rowe, Edwards, Dozzell, Huws, Keane

Donacien for KVY, Huws for Downes and/or Edwards for Norwood if they’re not fit.

Injured and out for three months in mid July so back training by mid October. If all goes to plan he might get some minutes at Colchester?

I’d have taken a draw...
at 17:00 5 Oct 2019

Whatever Barton prattles on about David v Goliath I think that’s an excellent win albeit with blots on the landscape - KVY presumably picking up an injury, Jackson missing a penalty and Wilson’s red card. Can’t see us risking Skuse as the third defender at Accrington?

Line up at Fleetwood?
at 00:46 4 Oct 2019

Expect a similar line up to the Tranmere game; question is whether we’ll push for more width and will Skuse be a defensive midfielder or a centre back? Wouldn’t be surprised to see Nolan in for Judge.

Holy

Vincent-Young
Chambers
Woolfenden
Garbutt

Skuse
Downes
Huws
Nolan

Jackson
Norwood

Substitutes: Norris, Wilson, Dozzell, Edwards, Georgiou, Judge, Keane
