In the automatic spots and off the back of a 5-1 win... the manager's team's all wrong and the young kids who've shown about 15 minutes of action should replace all the established players... I don't get this. Joel Randall will get his chance. So will Seymour. Taylor has, and continues to, nurture the young players. For some people, no amount of caution is acceptable.
That is a rather large exaggeration of what RM posted. He simply said he is disappointed Joel can't make the bench. I agree with him.

Edwin. I think you're over-reacting a bit and misquoting RD's post.
Holmes is clearly getting near the end of the line : surely it's fair comment to opine that Randall could be on the bench instead of Holmes? RD certainly didn't suggest all our young players should be on the bench

Give me reasons why it isn’t ?
1. 4g isn't allowed in the Football League.
2. The players hate it.
3. Players with chronic but manageable knee conditions wouldn't be able to play.
4. From a purely personal perspective, the aesthetic of the game is ruined.
5. It's an expensive solution to a problem that doesn't really exist.
6. 4g pitches also suffer from wear and tear and need replacing after a shortish shelf life.

Plus they're flammable (https://www.thesun.co.uk/sport/football/4839487/hyde-mk-dons-fa-cup-pitch-fire/) and of course they cause Cancer (https://www.politico.eu/article/eu-tackles-chemicals-in-artificial-football-pitches-cancer-rubber-pellets/).

Hold you’re horses where did I say that Matt got the team all wrong.
I just had a option that Randall Williams didn’t look as affective
On the left, I even said he could have had a off night.

As for Joel Randall of course he will get his chance and if
Lee Holmes is fully up to speed then no problem with him
Being on the bench.

I hope this will satisfy you
