That was a really good performance all around, except for the quality of shooting.  Probably the reverse of a lot of performances this season.   That back 3 looked really good, Clarke and Ja

Good enough to be called up for international football, but not good enough to start a game in League 2. Baffling to say the least.

Didn't see yesterday's game so cannot comment on that one, saw the Por Vale (shite) and Scunthorpe (much better) ones though.    The home form has been totally dross all season and 4 wins fr

In case you missed this, thought I’d share Keith Curle’s assessment of Pidge as reported in the Oldham Times:

 

“Carl is very good at organising the two defenders either side of him and the defensive midfield player in front, and if the ball’s in the air head it, and if it’s on the ground kick it.”

Quite compelling.

 

However Big Dog, as you well know, some say this reliability and basic competency is just not enough, Pidge should be chased out of town back to non league forthwith.

 

I would be happy for Pidge to stay and keep the armband next season.

Right come on then, how many is HE going to score this weekend...?

 

If we had Kewell in charge and the way he set us up, I think he would get so much space and fill his boots.

 

The way we set up with Curle should hopefully crowd him out a bit more, although I expect he'll probably score a worldie.

.... back to the opposition. 

 

As one manager once told me.."There"s a 50% chance it will fall to one of ours".😄

The main changes I'd make would be in defence to give us a bit more balance.  Moving Jameson across to the left of centre in place of Badan is a must.  Hopefully Clarke is back from injury but if not then Sutton or Jombati would be next in line.  Just not Diarra.

 

In the absence of CBJ, Badan would be the ideal left wing-back.  But after his poor defending for the Scunthorpe goal I'd keep with Fage there for the time being.

 

The only other change would be to bring in Bahamboula for Hilßner.  Whelan and McCalmont actually earned their places on Tuesday and Bahamboula is definitely needed.

 

Lawlor (or whoever is fit)

 

Clarke

Piergianni

Jameson

 

Adams

Whelan

McCalmont

Fage

 

Bahamboula

McAleny

Currently at 11/8 to score at anytime. It does seem like buying money...

Hard to see anything other than an easy away win

Usually do alright against Bradford, don't we? Away win... 

 

When we attack them yes, not starting Bahamboula will be a clue to Curle's mindset

Whiz wham Bam wins goal of the month and Curly Keith won't select him to play?

Even if we went with a defensive mindset Curle appears to be a clean sheets and set pieces type of manager. You would still think you would have room for a player like Bahamboula. Out of the 10 outfield players even if you pick 7-8 of them with the instructions to contain the opposition you should still have room for someone like that to give the opposition something to think about at the other end of the pitch. I'm hoping he was resting him Tuesday with the intention to be unleashed tomorrow

Nothing would surprise me at the moment, always expect the unexpected.

The Scunthorpe commentary team made a telling point on Tuesday stating that we appeared ‘an easy team to play against’. Much as I really like seeing Bahamboula take on the opposition it is entertaining more so than effective. Until he learns to avoid losing possession so much he’ll play at this level. Perhaps why Curle isn’t totally convinced yet.

Bahamboula didn’t play against Scunthorpe. You could argue that if he had we might have been less easy to play against ...

So Lawlor is definitely out.  If they extend Walker's loan then surely he'll be between the sticks.

 

If Clarke doesn't make tomorrow I'd like to see Will Sutton given a go at right centre back.
