Quoted from Chrisblor
5 defenders? Playing Winfarrah as a defensive midfielder? I think everyone already knew it, but you're an absolute nutcase 80s.

2 defenders trying to push forward and 3-4-1-2 in attack.
Not sure why you think he's playing as "defensive midfielder", moreso it's Paddy playing as an attacking midfielder.

If Hurst goes full strength (as he can), really hope we win and we're not scratching our heads wondering who plays on Tuesday.

Appreciate the insult.

Quoted from Maringer
A front 3 of Pittman, LJL and Arnold could be a real handful for any defence to cope with but I wonder if it would leave the midfield a little bit exposed as the two wide players are the sort you'd expect to see pushing on more than coming back to defend.

Lose in one area, you gain in another.

Looking at the table I reckon Oxford are more Braintree than Huddersfield.

PS. Scoring loads in the Lincs Cup does not make Hannah a 'cup man'

Those who looked at the table earlier in the season probably thought we were worse than Braintree too.

In any case I wasn't really thinking about "strength".
More that it's likely to be a rough and tumble rollercoaster FA cup game.

                                     McKeown
Bignot                  Nsiala               Pearson              Thomas
                                      Parslow
                       Disley                        Clay
Mckreth                                                                Arnold

                                         LJL


I've a feeling it will be this; its cautious and defensive, but allows us the luxury of Pittman, Neilson (if fit) and Hannah as 3 to bring on.  Also, Parslow's versatility means you don't really need defenders on the bench, maybe Walker, and then Paddy, Winfarrah, and Venney/Humble the other subs.

Having said that; I'd rather Parslow at RB and Pittman in from the start




What a time to be a Grimsby Town Fan!

Mckeown

Bignot
Nsiala
Pearson
Thomas

Mackreth
Parslow
Disley (c)
Paddy
Neilson

John-Lewis

Walker
Winfarrah
Venney
Clay
Arnold
Pittman
Hannah.

I have gone for this 4-5-1 which can also be attacking with Neilson and Mackreth down the wings, Paddy can get forward with Disley and Parslow sitting, i have left Magnay at home to recover put Clay and Arnold on the bench can't risk them getting injured big game on Tuesday and wanted to rest most of the first team players if was up to me i would throw in Walker, Winfarrah and Venney from the start.

McKeown


Parslow
Toto
Pearson
Aza

Disley
Clay
McLaughlin

Mackreth
The Shop
Arnold

Subs:

Bignot
Humble
Winfarrah
Venney
Neilson
Hannah
JP

Magnay won't be too bigger loss. Parslow will deputise well and Magnay will probably be fit for Tuesday. So you could shove Parslow into holding midfield and leave Pell out if Clay plays well or if he is poor play Pell.
