Wiseman

Blewer, Kreyling, West, Crow

Jay, Roberts, Dobbo, Corbell

Rugg, J. Curran.

SUBS:
Johnson
Lamb
Batch
Reade
Gordon

Basically, the same line-up as against Fakenham. However should Ryan come back into contention, who the hell do you drop? <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/confused.gif" alt="" />

The way Crow is playing, Bourne wouldn't fit into my starting XI. The two 'old' heads in Kreyling <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> and Crow need to accompany the inexperienced youth of Blewer and West.

Should Ryan be fit though, I would have to relegate Corbell to the bench and make Lee Jay switch sides and push Roberts out on the right for Ryan to take his position alongside Dobbo.

i know I'm on my own here, but if Ryan is fit i would drop Dobbo.encourages the "wrong" ball.if the team are to get anywhere they must keep it on the deck. hoofing it forward is costing us, the ball just keeps coming straight back at us. keep it simple, pass and probe.

I'd keep the same team as last Saturday. Doubt Ryan will be fit to play until the following Saturday.

I can see your point Gully, but I think if you were to drop Dobbo you would have to play Stuart Batch in his place.

Batch can definately play it along the floor and has shown some nice simple play, but like Dobbo he is really the only other defensive minded midfield we have capable of keeping the midfield solid.

Edgar, Roberts, Corbell are all attacking minded when they play in the middle and although Clyde is often seen to track back when he's out on the right to help defend, I think putting him in the middle he would be pushed off the ball too easily.

Every game I've seen so far with Batch playing, he clings to the man with the ball, often giving him little room for maneuver. yet with the ball at his feet can still pick out an attacker on either side of the pitch.

Stuart Batch would be an obvious replacement for Dobbo. agree with your comments on him Matt. He is strong and is a good passer of the ball. but unless Dobbo is injured i cant see Stuart in the starting lineup.
Ryan said last night that he wont be available until the following week.

I've just spoken to Chris and he says he can still feel a twinge in his groin, but if he gets through training tonight then he'll be okay to play Saturday.
He's really excited about playing for us at the moment and is looking forward to Sudbury and especially Hornchurch.

I really don't understand how you can even think about dropping Dobbo and replacing him with Batch.

Its a personal opinion which i respect but poor comment Gully. Dobbo was man of the match, scored the winner and worked until the dying second. Not sure what "the wrong ball" is anyway.
