Could be a very long afternoon. Injuries hitting us hard. Seems incredible so many are missing.
Putting my negative hat on, the bottom 4 is beckoning. Just what is it with these injuries….
Another mess of a line up. What a miserable start to the season
Thought Ali did enough in his cameo on Tuesday to justify a start if Vokes wasn't fit today. I have a bad feeling about this afternoon.
Good job we've got that nice new training pitch to make sure we don't get as many injuries
Would be very happy with a bit of parking the bus and some negative counter-attacking grindball just while we’re so hit with injuries.
Today won’t define our season but a string of defeats will do nothing for confidence.
There's enough in that team to give it a good go.
Let’s hope we’ve been practising set piece defending. Or hope they didn’t see the show against Exeter
Not quite sure why the moans are reaching a crescendo here?
It's basically what we had last game, with a 1st team keeper and Gape back. Plus McCarthy on the bench.
All of those are welcome improvement surely?
Mellor picked up his knock on Tuesday didnt he? Not sure why I'm defending the training pitch but pretty sure he had treatment from the physio fairly soon after coming on
If I start feeling miserable about the days prospects now, a draw will feel like a fantastic result and even a defeat not so bad.
Be great if Mccarthy can regain his previous form from a few seasons ago, Grimmer has been dreadful!
There's more than enough talent in that line-up to get a result.
No, clearly everything is shite blah, blah, should have bought 12 strikers just in case, Vokes should play on crutches.
Can't believe they wouldn't let us have Sam Parkin back and Ian Rush wouldn't come out of retirement, sure Keith Ryan will plug away.
Does Freeman have to figure out world peace to get a start? Just curious.
He'll start midweek I dare say.
Let’s hope Max has a blinker!
Maxwell’s silver hammer!!
Was out injured a long time. Patience and a slow rebuild is to be expected isn’t it?
Surprised Wing was selected today, I thought he had a shocker on Tuesday.
I suppose. I guess we don't know exactly how fit someone is. Mawson did come in and play 90, but players are different of course.
For Mawson to be starting today after 90 mins on Tuesday must mean Gaz believes he is fit and ready to perform.
Barnsley are a very good side but hopefully we can get going today.
Welcome to my world!!
More need to play Mawson and Forino now with no like for like options and the stand ins struggling.
One of them gets a rest as soon as Taff is back.
Where do you put him?
As a replacement for Wing - who of course will now dictate the game and score a couple!
It's basically what we had last game
The game we lost 3-1 and looked like a pissed pub team.
Rb or Am... Wing and Grimmer have been poor.
If Wing isn't fit then I agree, but Wing > Freeman if both fully fit imo
Did Phil just say David Wheeler adds extra height?
