Am I right in thinking we took inspiration for our badge from Charlton's? I'm sure I read something on COTN.
They get a free pass anyway as they're not a member of the modern roundel rabble (nor are we, really).
Merging those two badges would be bad news for our swan!
Idk, it might be the only way to extract the chain
They started it. The only reason theirs doesn't look so generic is that it was decades earlier, didn't I read that in your article? I think it's the font that gives it a bit of style but it looks a bit too much like a kite safety mark on a patio door. Btw if they've gone for a red line that makes it look like it's levitating why don't they carry that through under the hand too?
Yeah, they were one of, if not the, first. I think the current one is a 'shiny' version of this.
Starting 11- same as Barnsley with Taf on the bench.
I think AAH starts if fit
That would be great.
Ahead of who?
Wheels, although the fluid attack at Barnsley seemed to work well
would love to see a back 5 , below would. be my team
Leaving Gape out?
Odds must be on the same team as Barnsley even if Taf is fit.
toss of a coin between Wing and Gape , think Wing has better of variety of passing but Gape more competitive and hassles
Not saying I would start AAH necessarily, just feels like Gaz will
But what a strong bench we could possibly have today:
Freeman, Taf, Horgan, McCarthy, AAH, Pattenden and Tyla.
Gape, Scowen and Wing gives it a bit more structure. No need to shoehorn everyone in straight away, there will be time and need later on.
Yes maybe, that is if we did play 5 at the back.
I don't think he will play a back 5 , think Gareth will stick to his usual , if vokes was fit that would be a heck of a side
Me Charlton mate fears McCleary (probably because he’ll have seen plenty of him over the years). Not sure he’s entirely convinced by the threat of Mehmeti. I did warn him!
He came for a meal with us yesterday evening before I dropped him off at the Falcon where he was planning to have a massive breakfast this morning after a couple of pints with fellow Addicks and a night in the Premier Inn. I said we were planning to swap League positions this afternoon.
My late brother was a lifelong Charlton fan and one time director so matches against them are very special.
Considering the use of Samuel and others in the past as foils and holders rather than direct goal threat GMac can do a great job for us up there until Vokesy returns. He's played part target man, part winger for a while from out wide passes, shoots, crosses well.
I thought for a moment I was seeing “eats, shoots and leaves” !
We'll have to give you editing rights and a red pen function one day
So the Barnsley side but Jacobson for Obita (who is ill.) Tafazolli on the bench.
fearing our line up today , love JJ bit think his lack of pace kills us, wheeler is not a number 9 ....Square pegs in round holes
I've got a feeling it will be McCleary as the centre forward but might be wrong.
I'd imagine the four playing in front of Gape and Scowen will be pretty fluid. That's how this system has worked best.
