Timi was immense last night, ZFA was very good as well who in my opinion was one of our more consistent performers this season until Lee came in and he seemed to just drop out of the team.Luke Hendrie has been well under-used for me. Solid L2 defender. I will actually give Lee some credit for the defenders. Several seem to be pushing on under him, not least Odusina who has been outstanding lately.
Definitely should change it up but Lee, even if he hasn't brought any discernible style of play seems very safety first so he'll probs bring back Liddle and the 532 unfortunately.
Completely agree with the feeling about the trophy with the youth teams involved, out of curiosity if we did make it to Wembley would you go? That isn’t a dig I’m just curious either way.It's a weird one isn't it. I've always supported the Football League Trophy, and I don't remember ever missing a home game in the comp until youth teams were allowed to enter. I haven't been to a game since, the whole thing just leaves me cold. I was sat at home last night, a couple of miles from the ground, but I never even considered going
I haven't given Wembley any thought to be honest. I think it's pretty unlikely that I'd want to go, I certainly wouldn't alter any existing plans.Completely agree with the feeling about the trophy with the youth teams involved, out of curiosity if we did make it to Wembley would you go?

I think it’s more the fact that the twice previous we could’ve gone, it’s ended up at Millennium Stadium then Ashton Gate. Feel like we have missed out on something, but I suppose I was too young for the old Wembley for comparison.I think it would be a tougher dilemma if the old Wembley still stood. I don't have the same feelings about the current stadium.
Rip off. £7 for a burger as fat as a beermat.
It is nowhere near the old place. The former Wembley was without doubt a total dump but the first time i walked up them stairs and saw the pitch and stands it was a real experience of history. The new one is just the fat brother of the Emirates Stadium.It's a number of factors really. As you say the food and drink is over priced, (But there are loads of stalls so easy to get it) It always seems like the atmosphere is flat in the place, for such an impressive looking place from the outside it's just been underwhelming. That said, the 2 times I went we lost and I saw us promoted to the Premier League at the old Wembley so perhaps I am biased. (I also saw a tedious England friendly against Belgium which I have just recalled)
Of course for those fans of teams who have never played at Wembley, it's the pinnacle of English football so it's completely understandable that fans dream of playing there. It's not all bad, the pre-match bars are great craic and I think there are more bars actually around Wembley so that should improve the pre-match experience no end.
Its a back door to B Teams.Can,t understand people slagging this comp off.
At the very least it gets your fringe players mins on the pitch, Bizarre.
Certainly hasn,t made a mockery of our bank balance.Very much this. When B Teams from the Premier League were allowed in it made a mockery of the competition.
