Right, back to football, the game of god!
Who should we have as first choice up front,we have seen lots of variations recently, what is our best partnership? I personally think abbey and haworth, abbey plays well off of him, and haworth is an absolute legend in my eyes!

I'd agree with that choice but I'd like to see Louie just behind them as an attacking midfielder. He can hold up the ball and supply Rob and Ben from the centre. As Protheroe is unable to play there may be a space for him.

Where's Gladwish when you need him?

Personally, I think I'd like to see Andy try Rob with Louie. Although Ben has had a few good games recently, I still think Louie gives us better options - and let's face it he was probably our only player on Tuesday night who came out with any credit.

That said, a lot will depend on what the Weston Super Mare defence is like. If they have a couple of lumbering centre halves in their team then playing Louie and Ben may be a better option to make use of their pace. But please let's not commit Tuesday's tactical error of playing high balls into the box and expecting two blokes who probably measure just over 10 feet between them to win headers, let's try and play balls in behind the centre halves for Ben and Louie to run onto (round the goalkeeper and slot home - he says tongue in cheek)

If you want the speed option then the ONLY choice is ben Abbey and Dennis Oli.

Personally I would go for Ben and Rob.

You're right Dave, forgot about Dennis - in which case I may even consider Rob and Dennis so we'd be able to combine height and pace.

No wonder mangers go bald with the choices they have to make!!

.....actually if you are talking about 'that miss', the Dover defender did remarkably well to get back and block the shot.....can't understand why Ben didn't simply chip the 'keeper!

The Weston Super Mare Centre back are slow they will be Billy Clarke ex Newport and Lee jarman ex Barry Town........Jarman has no pace at all but will be dangerous at set pieces.up front they have a couple of useful players Slater ex west Ham and Mac Gregor ex Bristol Rovers...Anyway we should be far too strong from them...At most they will be around 20 fans...

See you all at the Halifax Game

true, i was pleading with him from behind the goal to do just that,but in his wisdom he went round him with bewildering skill <img src="/images/graemlins/shrug.gif" alt="" /> , only to miss, i agree the defender did do well though

Isn't MacGregor the player returning from injury?

Apparently Weston Super Mare's manager claims he won't be risked?

That's how we started against Chester, but we didn't really get going until Ben came on according to the commentary on Radio Kent.

Oli played the first half at Chester on the right of an ineffective 5 man midfield, leaving Haworth the lone striker.
It was only when Rob went off , to be replaced by Abbey that we went 4 -4 -2 and pushed Oli further forward.

Forget about Oli. According to our website, he's been recalled by QPR due to injuries.

Er may i put you straight there Mc Gregor has gone back to Tamworth if you mean Mc Keever then he has a 50-50 chance but i think he will not risk him other than from the bench. As for Clark and jarman having no pace i,ll let you decide that for yourself. Farnborough said simular comments and look what happened. anyway see you all tomorrow. By the way can we loan a couple of hundred fans to make it look good please?

What annoys me is that QPR have only recently let Pacquette go to Dagenham!!!!!
