Is it ready that big a call to leave Law out with what Matt Jay has done in that time, scored twice and been a pivotal part in a number of goals that he hasn't scored.
It's a big call for Sir Matt in the sense that he has more or less said that MJ is understudy to Law. But on the other hand, Law played v Pompey and MJ has been playing very well. It's a call and a nice call to have to make. I'd bet that MJ will get the nod, but it could quite easily be Law.
Atangana, Taylor, Collins, Law, MJ, or even your mate Lee Martin : 💪👍

Behave yourself. Or are you planning to go Northampton with your six man midfield again?

The funny thing about Lee Martin is that he seems to have gone off the boil a bit since he came back into the reckoning.
Yes, I was pointing out the strength of our midfield. Good, ain't it?
Wonder if Matt will stick with Ajose and Bowman or if he'll just play Bowman upfront in the theoretically difficult games and stick in a genuine midfielder to replace Ajose.

It depends whether he learns from Swindon or not. He changed his side worrying about them. Let then worry about us. Ajose is scoring goals in places that we weren't scoring from before. Goals win games.

Matt Taylor will have to balance fitness, any knocks, the opposition etc. but I would expect the starting 11 to be:

Ward
Sweeney Martin Parkes
Williams Atangana Collins Dickenson
Jay
Bowman Ajose
I suspect that's the most likely line-up and if it is we could be looking at a bench of Moxey, Taylor, Law, Lee Martin, Richardson and Holmes or Fisher. I know we keep banging on about our strength in depth but that's a serious amount of quality and experience to have in reserve - although it's perhaps no surprise at this stage of the season the 30-somethings are finding themselves out of the team and being replaced by younger, fresher legs.

Wow, that's a coincidence. My guess of 412 was for this season's attendance. I had no idea it was the number from last year. Maybe it's a sign. Not sure what it's a sign of, but I'm pretty sure it's a sign.
Its a sign that your predictional psychology is currently in sync with the lunar eclipse of Mars. Despite you believing so, this is certainly no coincidence. Please inform me of the score, whether positive or negative, and I will be lumping on with the bookmaker.
