Please not 4-2-3-1.

In among the bad stuff this season we have Sam Jones - someone who has this canny knack of finding the back of the net on a regular basis - so he needs to start up front.

Replace Clarke with Collins.

Dixon has to play left back because no one else can, Davies and Mills have been poor so far this season, and other than Debele and maybe Rose I don't think anyone else has staked a claim to start in midfield on a regular basis.

Good luck picking your side, Russ!

Jones played the number 10 role against Chesterfield, I think he works best playing off the striker rather than in a 4-4-2 personally.

I've just about lost interest at the minute to be fair, considering we have such a big squad there's doesn't feel like a great choice of options to pick from...

Not too far from what i expect to see (not what i might like to see)  although potentially Summerfield instead of Jones as i think he has the better engine than Jones and Slade i imagine will be all about not losing this game.

Would prefer to see Woolford drop out for DJ as well but just cant see that for tomorrow.

Whoever plays there are 3 things you must not do,

1.  Get sent off,

2. Give a pen away,

3. Score an own goal.

If you can all do that we might get a draw which would be a good result.


Did I just say a draw at Accrington Stanley ( who are they ) would be a good result ?

I'd perhaps expect a 4-4-1-1 and I think this would best suit Jones who probably remains our best goal threat, disappointing though he has generally been this season. Effectively a 4-5-1 when defending.

Not sure how well up to speed Matt is by now, but I expect he would be better as a lone(ish) striker as he's bigger and reportedly quicker than our other options up top.

This being the case, I'd go for the following:

                 McKeown
   Davies  Clarke  Osborne  Dixon
Dembele  Rose  Clements  Woolford
                    Jones
                     Matt

Perhaps a little harsh on Berrett who has been better of late than we saw last season, but I think Clements is much stronger aerially and in the tackle, not to mention his goal threat.

For that matter, I wouldn't perhaps be too upset seeing Bolarinwa playing on the left for his pace, strength and workrate. It would perhaps be a defensive move if Woolford is expected to be a more able attacker, but I'm not convinced he's anywhere near up to pace yet.

People seem to have got it into their minds that all our issues have derived from playing 4231. It's not the formations that are the issue, it's the way were trying to play within them. Personally, I don't get the obession with 442, it is no way neat as successful as it was 10 years ago.

From where I've been sitting I'm not sure it matters which formation we use, crap players are still crap no matter where you play them.

Clements was well off the pace against Hartlepool`s finest second eleven and looked overweight, Berrett will play or Summerfield probably.

Don't think Dembele will be fit and DJ won the penalty Saturday by driving forward with the ball into the box - something Dembele should do more often. If Dembele is fit I would be tempted to play both as they do track back and offer pace which hurts teams. Due to the lack of pace at the back and knowing Jackson has pace to burn, pace in midfield may be necessary.

Matt to hold up the ball and feed supporting midfielders. Clifton had a good game versus Doncaster and has since been overlooked, there can be nothing lost by throwing him in tomorrow night.

Not so much a change of system required for me - more a change of general tactics. Can we stop hoofing channel balls and hoping for the best and actually pass to each other, and can the players show some urgency and passion - pressing them, closing them down, especially high up the pitch?

Taken from the thread by Moosey:  is Macca setting up for an edge of the box free kick here?

Berrett will be the first name on the team sheet 😱😱


In his three stints as Grimsby Town manager spanning over 10 years the club was never relegated and he also guided them to three promotions.
Only 14 managers have reached 1,000 matches in charge of a Football League team by 1998 and Buckley is one of them.

Wouldn't disagree with this.

I think the fight, and determination Clifton will show if he plays, will be greater than the full team from Saturday.

I think Jones and DJ will come in for Hooper and Woodford. I also think we will get a positive result.

Woolford looked a bit rusty on Saturday, but definately think there is a player in there.

I don't really care, as long as we have two strikers on the pitch.

We need to go for the win. No prancing around, thinking about league tables and all that guff. I've no doubt Stanley are a good side, but it's too early in the season to be intimidated by league placings.

After all, I'm doing my best to ignore the league position we're currently in!

Going to Accrington and setting up for a draw - given the way Slade gets his team playing - isn't going to win over the fans.

A point wouldn't be a bad result, but I certainly wouldn't set out for just one.

I'd imagine the chances of Berrett being dropped for Clifton are pretty much non-existent! Would be good to see Clifton play at some point as I don't think I've seen him kick a ball since we were in non-league and I've no idea what to expect from him.

A ?  I see him two or three times a week and saw him less than a week ago and he hasn't got an ounce of fat on him. not sure about match fit though. People seem to use the words "not up to steam" but watching the players that turned out last Saturday, I would say not many of them were up to steam and perhaps never will be.
