with a few maybe struggling and the obvious sight that the silly formation paul tries this is what I would go with..

                                     Macca

Magnay            Pearson (if fit)           Toto          Bignot


Neilson           Mclaughlin       Brown        Mackreth


                     Pittman            Lenny

442 get it on the deck and pass it.

If you're playing Pearson and Toto as CB you want Pearson as LCB and Toto as RCB. Why would you want to do it the other way as you are suggesting?

And MacKreth on the left side of midfield???

I think Saturday's starting 11 and formation is the toughest one to call this season so far.


Agree with this, we have players with knocks and Pearson could be doubtful too.
Just been looking at Torquay's stats and clips and feel it will be a tough game this.


Grimsby and proud!

Are we really not ready for either Winfarrah or Walker to step up yet? Walker might be in need of gentle exposure to first team duties but Winfarrah looks confident and very able, a balanced and steady back four will see us climb the table.

I'm not convinced that Walker is ready for a first team starting slot. He's looked OK on the odd occasion I've seen him play, but unless he's developed a lot in recent months, I'm not sure he's ready. Despite his error the other night, I think that Bignot is likely to remain in the team for his experience alone.

Tinkering again , proves with one or two injuries we appear to be struggling to get a competent side out again .

I know it's early days, but I haven't seen too much evidence to suggest that Mackreth is able to beat his man.  So far there has been a lot of promise, but little end product from him.  

If he starts tomorrow, I'm hoping for something more from him. I really hope he can supply the bullets for The Pope to fire!


I remember being pelted with ice by the Norwich fans during the Milk Cup match, do you?

It's not tinkering if you have to make changes due to injuries!

With everyone fit, I'd expect to see the following formation:

                McKeown
Bignot  Nsiala  Pearson  Magnay
Neilson  Clay  Brown  McLaughlin
             LJL  Pittman

If Pearson and Clay aren't fit, we'll see Doig and Disley coming in, I'd have thought.

Alternatively, perhaps McLaughlin (or Disley) in for Clay with either Mackreth or Arnold coming in on one of the wings.

If Pearson isn't fully fit, I'd rest him to allow a bit more time to recuperate. Doig is a capable defender as long as he's not playing week-in, week-out.

Amazing how things work out really isn't it, my biggest concern for Saturday is whether Clay will be fit or not.
