1-0 down sounds a shocker! Aidan Stone booting a clearance against his own man into the net
I said the same on this thread before. It needs going in the shit bin. It’s not what it was.They made 11 changes we made 8, sums up this once decent competition
That won’t change. Fa cup and the league matters - teams don’t care about the league cup until the semis.It’s only going to shit because teams are making it shit by not giving a shit.
I hope it doesn’t get axed, just fuck off the Pizza Cup instead.
Yeah, you need good fortune, pleased for Scott Brown. Expect a 2nd round exit, interestingly enough we drew Everton 2 years ago at home in this competition. Got stuffed 5-2 , Jordan Pickford had an absolute shocker. It was in the middle of the pandemic so zero crowd, hopefully make up for it this timeSome teams get all the luck!
We still ran you ragged when Alfie May & Liam Sercombe and the likes came on.Whilst they might be experienced, they're certainly not good enough. Of the 11, Southwood, Raglan and Bonds are the only ones I'd consider starters for a league game. Raglan is not good enough, but better than the backups. Arguably, Ferry will become one as well, but he only signed yesterday.
Of the rest:
James Taylor - young loanee from Bristol City making his debut, will be lucky to make the bench again
Grant Horton - reserve player who will probably make the bench again but won't start
Tom Bradbury - big summer signing from Halifax, hasn't made the bench in the League yet
Dan Adshead - I thought he would be a first team player, but was his full debut last night
Ellis Chapman - Seems to think he's made it because he signed a new deal in the summer, has only been a sub in the League
Charlie Brown - A waste of money, MK Dons saw us coming. Don't think he'll ever score a goal for us.
George Lloyd - Been on the periphery for years now and doesn't look like he's going to break through - certainly not a player to lead the line.
All of these should be replaced on Saturday. Our first 11 is ok for League One, what's concerning is the backups are so far off the pace that a few injuries could be devastating to us.
I will have a £100 bet with you now that it will not be 0-7, or 7-0 or any other instance where one of the teams scores 7.Same result though
They came on when we were 6-0 down - what were you expecting them to do, run around like blue-ass flies trying to get a goal back.We still ran you ragged when Alfie May & Liam Sercombe and the likes came on.
On the bright side the lardies went out, would have been worse had they got through and we'd have had them but got knocked out!The one time this competition would have drawn interest for us and probably been on TV and both Vale and Stoke fuck it up.
Staffs dibble must be pleased at not having to pay the overtime I guess.
