MATCH: Bradford (A) Papa John's Trophy


Recommended Posts

This is a contender for the least important game in our history.

 

For anyone who does care about the competition, there's no way that we can't finish top of the group, so there's nothing riding on it at all.

 

With Scunny at home on Saturday and a great chance to get 9 or 10 points clear of the drop (and maybe even pushing towards mid table) added to the fact that we're short on fit players (going off not being able to fill the bench today), there's no way that we should be playing any player who played today who we need on Saturday.

 

So with that in mind, are there any youngsters in particular that deserve a game?  Surely confidence would be high for them after the 6-0 win against FCUM.

Have they sponsored it for 4 seasons?

What are the restrictions on the number of changes you can make?I'd play a back four of DMaarms, his senior director source, a steward and the groundsman. 

Cup and TV money have put £160k back into the club so far.  Probably not what some want to hear though.

Do the qualification rules not apply where you have to play so many who started your last game ? 

 

It might be the previous three games, in which case we've rotated about 30 different players so we should be fine.  👍

This might of been discussed elsewhere but why isn't Wheater on the official website first team player's page?  

Wheater must have accidentally dropped his dog on his keyboard when lifting it, and deleted his own profile

I'm willing to venture that it's not because last week's statement was a full and frank disclosure of all relevant matters.....

Don't think many of the youngsters are ready to be called up. More likely a reshuffle with those left out at Hampton starting.

Were there many available who were left out? Piergianni, Hamer, Bilboe, MacAleny and Dearnley all unavailable for various reasons

Well in that case I'd go for:

 

Chapman

 

Fage

Jombati

Jameson

Barnett

 

McCalmont

Whelan

Hough

 

Keillor-Dunn

Blackwood

Grant

 

If there's any other youngsters who could replace first teamers that would be ideal as well.  Just as long as we don't play any key players.

TMB says in the OP we top the group whatever happens tomorrow. 

 

I think we get a few thousand for winning each group stage match.

 

That said, if our squad is that depleted already I hope we prioritise the league.  Wouldn't put it past the owners not to though.

It's £10,000 for winning a group game.  Obviously we should be prioritising the league and I would hope we do, but we live a fairly hand to mouth existance at the moment so wouldn't be surprised if we go as full strength as possible.

Fair enough. I'd still play the back four as above. Perhaps add Shitpeas to run the channels.
