So after two consecutive games called off in the frozen north, what weather forecast for Tuesday do we not want for a potentially waterlogged Newport pitch?
Something like this?
So how would a team composed of exclusively ECFC Academy graduates now look? - as they are today for a game in a couple of weeks, so players like Dan Seaborne no longer count etc. A few changes I reckon since last season:-
Key Storey JMT Friend
Jay Sercombe Randell
I think MT said this is a dead rubber as we have already qualified(?) though do we need a result to clinch top spot and a home tie in the next round?)
Easy to pick an eleven of players who need the game time, who didn't start on Saturday, but include the required 4 with over 40 senior...
MT wants to use ’different personnel’ on Tuesday. If he wants a completely different starting eleven from those who started on Saturday:-
four players who didn’t start on Sat with over 40 first team career starts - Taylor , Fisher, Ajose and Parkes (MT is optimistic he will be fit)
Another prediction guessing game!
we have six exciting youngsters on the verge of the first team. Randall, Hartridge, Dean Dyer Key and Kite. Not Sparkes, because I think of him as already a first teaser. But you can also choose from even less experienced like Diabate, Smerdon and even 17 year...
Here are my thoughts pre Covid 19 impact.
we have a squad of 32 professionals. That is a maximum number.
Thompson 3rd choice keeper
Woodman, Warren, Holmes on grounds of age/injury/not played much this season
richardson returning to parent club
fisher- we need a centre forward to challenge...
I always like to see how the possible line up evolves over the summer.
As of now..
Jack Arthur or Matt Taylor(!)
In reserve - Sparkes,Randall...
I can only think of three examples-
Last season when Wheeler left, but we got in Stockley and Boateng and finished fourth.
Ten years ago we lost Mackie in January and Exeweb went into meltdown on deadline day with no replacement signed, but we went on to get promoted.
In 89-90 we lost Dazza...
Following on last week's successful starting of the Matchday thread on a Friday, I've decided to repeat the magic! Apologies to last week's thread starter for stealing his gig but more than nine hours of Friday have already elapsed.
OK I'll take the rap for a poor result, but I've rarely been...
First the line up. How many changes will Tis make?I'll go for three,but he could decide to make as many as eight.
For example if Sweeney and Reid are fit then it could be just Pym,JMT and Boateng (or Stockiey) retained.So
Sweeney TAH JMT Woodman
Edwards James Boateng Harley
...just so important to us that this pair both play. Hope JMT is OK
here's the stats from last season
With both starting its W15 D8 L6
If not its W8 D3 L14
So if they're together...
A bit early for this thread but with 18 under contract already..
Let's also assume Ollie will be gone So..
Sweeney Brown JMT Woodman
Wheeler Harley Holmes
Subs Hamon Tillson McAlinden Jay Reid (J) Simpson Ampadu
this evening marks the anniversary of Ollie's first League goal (courtesy of an assist from Clinton!) A year is a long time in football! In Jan and Feb last year Ollie was making the occasional appearance usually as a sub
And its been quite a 12 months! The 22 goals and all those...
