    I hope he gets his chance , I already said before he proved in the cup game the other night and pre season he is one player we have that can pick it up in midfield and play a pass that splits the defence and creates a goal scoring opportunity.
    Whether he can do that on a weekly basis I'm not sure but I don't see anyone else in the squad capable so give the lad a chance

    Exactly marra, I'll leave the team selection for Johnson as I'm sure he'll be seeing their performances in training and the task in hand

    As has been said we have to trust the manager at the moment, we can't be carrying passengers any longer. Whoever is here should be desperate to play, I doubt the likes of Graham care if they ever play football again tbh.

    I hope Johnson goes through that squad and really sorts it out.

    He'll come in for Max Power who is now going to play Right back for the rest of the season.

    Then what about O’Nien? Power actually looked ok at RB. Would personally like to see O’Nien given a prolonged run in midfield by someone!!

    Think Winchester is more likely to do that. Can see Neil making the bench though

    Winchester will hopefully replace Dobson.

    I read that Johnson's going to wait until O'Nien's back from injury and assess what to do with him (fairly obvious) but if Power's doing a bang up job at RB, and with Luke's ability to get forward into the box and take risks which Johnson will like I'm pretty confident we'll see him in CM.
