Friday afternoon question
at 17:09 16 Nov 2019

I agree, all this election is likely to do is prolong the uncertainty. A referendum would have been better than this; at least there may have been some kind of result.

As for who I'm going to vote for, I'll do waht I always have done - wait for the referendums to be published and consider which one I can support the most in return. No single party as ever published a manifesto which I agree with in full so it's about how much I can hold my nose for.

Yes, I am that naive that I still think the party manifestos mean something.

Just like having no league game between 5th November and 22nd November convinced Lambert to field a strong team against Linc... oh.

So is the argument that the police do not have either the manpower or the will to implement the existing legislation instead?

"Its actually made him less popular which tells you something: he's willing to put the club first over his popularity."

Aka the Mick McCarthy approach.

I’d argue we’re acting entitled with some of our team selections - particularly at Colchester but also against Lincoln. It’d be nice to respect the cup competitions, particularly the FA Cup, especially when we have approaching a fortnight’s break between league matches.

We’ve had a strong start to our league campaign. Considering the gap between the Rochdale and Blackpool matches the team selections for Lincoln and a Colchester do rankle and have guv3n us a replay and two additional away matches which, in my mind, are unnecessary. Like when Mick made these changes and we performed limply in our next league match despite the rest, IMO a good performance against Blackpool will make it worthwhile.

An away match on top of an unnecessary replay
at 21:22 12 Nov 2019

We have a big enough squad to show respect to all the competitions we’re taking part in this year. Instead we’re even going for a sticking plaster make do approach in the league, bizarrely playing a reserve XI in the FA Cup then foraging the U23s for players in the EFL. Considering we don’t have a League game for a fortnight why not give the first XI a run out in the FA Cup and the reserves tonight?

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.

Tonight’s team

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

Youngsters tonight

“We don’t want a FA Cup replay.”

Plays a weakened team resulting in a FA Cup replay.

“We want to finish top of the group.”

Plays an even weaker team risking top spot.

Still don’t get why we didn’t field our strongest XI in the FA Cup and the reserves tonight, rather than reserves/U23s. Some first teamers won’t have been involved in a proper game for nearly three weeks by the time Blackpool comes around.

When is the replay? (n/t)
at 17:26 9 Nov 2019

Interesting it's on the Wednesday and not the Tuesday - presumably something to do with the international break?

Being 24 hours closer to the Blackpool game I have no doubt it'll be the second string now. Who's away who played today - Downes, Dozzell, Dobra and Georgiou? So Hughes, Nolan, Edwards and El Mizouni coming in for them?

If we're permitted to decline playing the match in the allocated midweek (w/c 16th November) then 1st December is the next available slot unless we postpone the Wycombe match due to take place in the previous midweek.

Would normally be week commencing 18th Noivember but not sure how the international breaks effect that? I can see the FA putting their foot down and telling us to play it then as we don't have a free midweek until Second Round day, otherwise.

If we start moaning then maybe we should have fielded a stronger XI today and tried to get the job done without a trip to Sincil Bank.

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.

I thought Downes, Huws and Dozzell offered a well balanced midfield but it doesn’t appear to be working out that way.

I am concerned that, with Nsiala at the back and Keane up front, we'll be liable to offer up mistakes and be blunt up front.
