I’d 100% drop him. He’s not even been that great this season bar the Peterborough game. Give Johnson the chance.Hopefully our RB and Captain Perry Ng is nowhere near the team tomorrow. He spat all over Wade Elliot, Cheltenham’s assistant manager, after the final whistle. Artell has bizarrely defended him, despite there being very clear video evidence. Seems to be a bit of an issue with Crewe, people are so biased they can’t see what’s right in front of their eyes.
Pragmatic approach will be more than enough to beat us at the moment. We’ve completely stalled and look absolutely lost on the pitch.Still got over half our first XI out injured - plus 2 more from Saturday. We’re a pale shadow of last season’s team and under Sheridan I’d imagine we’ll continue to be ‘pragmatic’ in our approach. Be chalk and cheese v Crewe tomorrow.
With the club looking likely to be sold in the near future his only task is to keep us in L1 so any new owner can appoint their own man without compo being a problem.
Not a brilliant performance while beating Oxford - who were dreadful - but we dug it out with a CB playing striker! Maybe start that way tomorrow, who knows. Down to whoever is fit I suppose.
Two words should give you a lot of confidence. Olly Lancashire. Also we’ve bizzarly benched Kirk tonight. On the plus side Mandron and Beckles are back but only on the bench.I’ve won an Ifollow pass so will be watching tonight. As always I’m pessimistic and predict a 2-0 defeat.
From what I can glean from this forum Crewe at times have played some sparkling football this season but probably have less points than they have earned. We haven’t been absolutely awful but our keeper and defence has given away ridiculous goals, yet we find ourselves level on points with Crewe.
I saw both games last season and Crewe absolutely played us off the park at Gresty Road. Sounds like they are not clicking at the moment which is good for us, surprised to read Ng hasn’t been so good this season, was fantastic last.
No idea what ‘style’ we will he adapting tonight, I think Sheridan is still tinkering a little but he seems to have been able to get points on the board without us playing well, which was exactly what we need down at the bottom.
Swindon’s 2nd half was terrible. We literally could have scored 10 in that second half. Poor Caddis was ripped to pieces by Powell.
