Let's start the thread with the obligatory Yeovil injury news. Wes Fogden badly broke his fingers against York on Tuesday and he's out for 4 weeks (I thought it was called football, but hey ho).

Thankfully Dolan is back from suspension but we're still severely depleted with only one non-loan central midfielder available.

It sticks in my craw to predict this as I've hated Luton for as long as I can remember, but I can't see us getting anything

Why do you "hate" us? We've played 3 times... at least we provoke emotion in people I guess.

We need to drastically improve on mid week and I wouldn't be surprised at some changes in shape, hopefully away from 352 and maybe bringing people like Green back into the starting 11.

I'd personally go to 4231 but we are pretty locked in to 2 up front formations as that is obviously how you get the best out of Mackail Smith.

Think it will be a draw, we just looked bereft of any ideas and indeed ability on Tuesday, hopefully we can get going soon but not suren it will happen away from home.

Born in Watford, lived there and supported them until I moved to Yeovil as a kid. Born 50 yards from the Vic, Uncle played for them, most of my family still live in that area. It's kind of built in. Sorry about that.

Can't knock that for reasoning to be fair!

We've signed David Norris, he'll go straight into the starting XI tomorrow.

Hopefully that means we don't have to watch Ryan Bird attempt to play in central midfield...I'm already more confident!

Not surprised with the players they signed in the summer to be honest.

We're shit.

All well and good saying judge us after 10 games but we're embarrassing at the moment. Awful

Really didn't expect that, especially when we were 0-2 down. There's been a lot said about the standard of our squad but you've got to have some character to turn that around. Phew!

Still early days but given the money Luton must be spending, they should be nowhere near the bottom. I still expect them to to have a good season mind.

To be honest, although it would be harsh to get rid, I do think Luton may be better off with a less limited manager. Still is a stubborn so and so.

Big calls for Still to go already..

"Already" implies that it is just based on these four games. It isn't. Over the last 20 league games, we've won 4 and lost 13. 15 points from the last 60 available, and just 7 wins in the whole of 2015.

Still got the benefit of the doubt last year despite a catastrophic loss of form - he got a remarkably easy ride considering we were one game away from matching our record ever consecutive loss tally at one point. He was always going to be under more pressure from the fans this season, especially as the board have clearly backed him in a pretty big way in the transfer market.

Personally I'm still very much in the pro-Still camp, but it is getting harder and harder to defend him. Stats don't lie ultimately and they make for truly awful reading for the whole of 2015.

True - making loads of signing means he has clearly spent some money and as you say its not just a short term bad run.

He's got to be under pressure now, prior to today I thought the Still Out fans where ungrateful but you can clearly see their point after throwing away that lead.

It would still be kind of harsh on him but you can't live off past glories for ever.

I'm definitely in the still in camp.

Give him a chance with these new players he has brought in first before booting him. Today was frustrating but we were actually largely in control for the first half, Yeovil put us under a spell of pressure toward the end of that half, scored and then we just capitulated, the Oxford game probably played a large roll in that.

5 or so more games and if there is no discernible improvement then we should probably start really worrying.
