    I would like to see tonight Younger, Neil and Curry, get the chance to stake a claim for at least a place on the bench in future, or even better if merited.

    Graham is slow as **** but we do need a focal point, for the way Johnson wants to play imo.

    Bristol City played a lot with a big lad up front. Couldn't remember his name, had a check, and it's Famara Diédhiou.

    The ball wasn't sticking up front on Saturday so we really need to find a solution.

    He could also get crippled so it’s a win win.

    Dump 4 useless strikers, when the pick of a bad bunch is Wyke, you know you are in trouble. Any decent forwards would have lots of goals. All we are doing is fcuking drawing games cos we cannot score. FFS, Mcgeady scored with a header last time out, they are as rare as hens teeth.

    Bring in 2 new strikers in (3?) and use the 2 young lads from under 23s

    When he’s stretchered of into the dressing room just cripple him a bit more and say he’s had a heart attack. He’d be still and lifeless so a doctor wouldn’t know the difference anyway <laugh>

    Until we bring in a decent forward I'd honestly **** Wyke, Graham off and play likes of Maguire and Gooch in centre forward positions, just try something different, you'd get more movement from them for a start.

    I do care about this game, I want to see us win; not winning games can become a bad habit.

    Graham not even on the bench?
    Is Grigg injured?

    3 weeks I think for Grigg

    Not sure about Graham, other than he is a bit ****.

    Graham not on bench. Hopefully on the way out rather than injured.

    Dobson being a sub with Scowen still starting, despite a wish to rotate, is damning for him. He's clearly not wanted.

    I like the look of this squad, plenty of experience and a good mixture of up and coming players, adding that bit of pace and hopefully goals. The starting eleven looks just about right. I would personally have preferred Curry to Wyke , but one step at a time and his chance will come, of that I am certain. Maybe in the next round OaU.

    Don't give a **** who we are playing or what tin pot it's for, can we just have a ****ing win for a change, doesn't have to be 7-0 just a win.

    Great thread as usual RTB.

    Ha'Way the Lads.

    Are you extracting the f*cking urine? The bloke is absolutely f*cking w*nk. Give somebody else a chance. Everybody knows Graham is a waste of a good skin. I would rather play with 10 men.
