The best way to make up for “lost” iFollow revenue on Sunday would be to win the game and receive the £25k prize..... I’d definitely agree with sending Roscrow away on loan - there must be at least 2 youngsters who could step up to the bench with ease.

Didn’t watch the game last night, but all the comments being made seem at odds with the stats on BBC and the highlights. Both sides made changes from Tuesday (understandably), so which side was weaker is a moot point. Happy we progressed, and Round 3 (with more fixture congestion) is a distinct possibility.

We were far worse against both Haringey Borough and Halifax, IMHO.
Re On This Day, why were we playing Middlesbrough on Wearside ?

Would expect to see either an upturn in form from our strikers over the xmas period and/or a bit of a change around in January depending on the transfer window specifics. Longman is a tricky one because if we've agreed a season long loan with Brighton then it might be seen as bad form to hand him back in January. Might save face all round if his hamstring goes. Palmer can still be forgiven for not having enough appearances yet so continues his stay of execution. Big day for him on Sunday against his former club. If it were me I'd move Roscrow on and give one of our youngsters the opportunity to be our 'last resort' striker.

WJ, the £10 iFollow must include 20% VAT - thus we require in excess of 3,000 paying for the service.

Silk - yes that promotion squad had more L1 standard players than this one. I'd say we've upped our level from previous years (especially the midfield although I still think there's too many ok but nothing special players there). I think this year we've benefited from a better average level to the squad, a better approach tactically and more genuine L1 standard players to drag the level up.

Trebor not saying they're starting but saying they're match day squad players on a regular basis. As you say we have a small squad. What I was saying was more a reply to the idea we sent more or less a reserves side. I don't think we can call it that - especially since our reserves are generally the under 23s not the first team squad. As you said, Barrow had same situation.

And Barrow had the same fixture congestion as us so they also changed their side.

What it comes down to is who is in the second round on Sunday. We know we have an average side and we know that Glyn is getting decent enough results from this average squad. The bigger problem in the long run is we do not know our best starting midfield and apart from Piggott we have no forwards opposition managers will be even the slightest bit concerned about. and yet still we are doing aright. We won't make the playoffs but we can spend a season with relative safety from the bottom four if we continue in this way.

The squad that got promotion to L1 was stronger than this one. We have to be more pragmatic about performances and marvel we are mid-table and a win from R3 of the cup.
Nervo, ifollow profit for FA Cup is split 50/50, so we'd need an audience of over 2400 subscribers for the BBC option to turn into a loss

(Not that Rudoni has been starting.)

We have such a small squad it's almost inevitable that many will have featured. 😊 But not sure you can say that Nightingale, Hartigan, Rudoni etc are first choices, even if they've been starting lately.

Not sure we can call that a reserves team. Starting 11: Csoka, Woodyard and Hartigan all started previous match. Nightingale, Rudoni, Thomas, Chislett and Palmer all came on. Tzanev and Alexander were unused subs only NGW wasn't involved. All the used subs played the previous match. And by the sound of it Barrow had to make a similar amount of changes anyway. I think there's a point we can't hide that as almost a youth side put out to play a full strength opposition. That match day squad is pretty much (bar Cox) the same squad we field most weeks.

Only half caught their explanation on their commentary (I usually prefer the oppo commentary over Radio WDON), but I think they were concerned about fixture congestion (!). Was funny when they like us did a sub and the commentators kept saying stuff like "Now Nightingale will find out what it's like to play against a proper striker."

Why would Barrow put out a reserve side?

It was pretty much Barrow's reserve side, apparently.

Give Tsanev the shirt send Trueman back in January if we can, save some dosh. Our youngsters deserve a chance.

Oh and well done to Next, M&S and Wilko for shunning Black Friday. The madness isn't contagious it seems!

Deeply uninspiring performance but to be expected with what resembled a reserve team. Rudoni will take YPOTY if he keeps that up, looked class at times, hopefully will find his scoring boots soon. Tsanev seems to be improving too.

A win nevertheless - and that's all that matters in the cup. Eminently winnable tie on Sunday then our first Prem opposition at PL. COYD.
Reading back, if I was Garry Lineker I'd prefer watching a 0-0 Wimbledon game on the vidiprinter than on WUP.

After the COVID disruption and the fact that was our third match in six days then I am not too worried about the performance. I do hope that Palmer can get fit and become an offensive weapon and Rudoni continues to progress. As I said earlier we cannot afford to selling Piggott. If we want to survive in L1 we are going to have to take the hit of letting him go for free in the summer.

It would be unfair to Glyn to sell him for £50k especially if that is what we are going to get from this week if win on Sunday.
Is Slavo living in a time warp? On the match report from last night he wote "the midweek defeat at Peterbrough" Prescient or a typo?

Not sure who will win the NFC East but can't see any of the teams having a winning record. But one of them will make the playoffs!
Palmer definitely need fitness. Thanks for the reminder SA, I thought Alexander looked decent last night. One of the few non guaranteed first teamers that seemed to do OK.

One positive about Sunday's game is that it will be on the carpet that is Plough Lane, rather than the bobbly affair of last night. Do Barrow share their pitch with the Rugby League team? Haven't seen a pitch quite as bad as that since Tranmere and we are only in November!

Goodd result in the end and getting some time into the legs of Palmer, Alexander et al is no bad thing IMO. Onwards, ever onwards!
