    The older I get, the more time I've spent living in Australia, the more I want to move to the Lake District. If there is a better place on earth I've not yet found it.

    HA'WAY THE LADS
    MACKEMS ATTACKEM

    I think this squad of players is capable of beating any team in the championship. But I don't think Dodds has a clue how to set up against opposing teams.
    Just seems like he's blindly chopping and changing after each defeat.
    Need a head coach in and the sooner the better.
    And the longer it takes. The better the coach we will need i fear.

    Another Beale'esque type appointment and there'll be a meltdown.

    I would like to say that neither Ekwah or Roberts were solely to blame for that display. Our team as a whole were under par and underprepared. Have we learnt anything from it we will see tomorrow. OaU

    I was cursed by poetry as young man. Nothing comes close to the Lakes for me except perhaps the Yorkshire Moors but I think you'd have to be a ****ing psychopath to live out there.

    Fantastic thread again from RTB. You can have a rest soon mate!

    After Monday's debacle, I'm expecting a gritty reaction. I think it's important that we are as solid as possible. For that reason, I wouldn't play Ekwah or Roberts. Hopefully Clarkey is fit.
    I would start Neil and Evans (if fit) and bring Styles on around the hour mark to replace Evans. Play Rigg in the 10 and bring Aouchiche on when they are tiring. Ba out wide as he provides the best cover for the full back. I'd be tempted to try Pembele at RB, with Hume at LB.

    Would be happy with a draw, but a win would be a major bonus. Just want to see the Lads giving all they've got in this one. Something they didn't appear to do last time out. Going for 2-2 draw.

    I'm now doubting we'll see Evans again this season, if at all.

    'Minor setback' might be 'comparatively speaking' knowing our luck !

    Unfortunately, I wouldn't be surprised if we never see him play for S.A.F.C. again :undecided:
