Has the makings of a bloodbath, given what I've been reading on here this morning. Very depressing...and the more so knowing that
nothing will change under Fenty. It'll be cheap options all round till he gets his money back, I fear. That includes the next manager....

I'd have a ton of respect for AL if - for Saturday's match at Northampton - he picked a spine of Macca, Waterfall, Hess & Hanson, and
picked academy kids (and Wright, if fit) for the other positions. Preferably in a 4-4-2, as that's the only shape that has worked for us in the
50 years I've been supporting Town.

One thing that struck me reading the match thread (apart from feeling the posters' pain) was the clueless reaction to going behind. We need
an outfield leader imo. From 'my' spine I'd choose Hess - but Waterfall and Hanson have the experience to draw on to handle the job, you'd think.
Making your goalkeeper captain is an admission you don't have an obvious outfield leader, I reckon. It identifies one of your team's problems.

Natural leaders are hard to pick up - every team wants them. I guess Welsh was signed with something like this in mind, but his legs had gone.
Right idea - wrong guy. I suspect a 'right guy' would cost about as much as JF takes out of the club each season, though...

What so playing the academy kids apart from spine of team and stripping Macca of captaincy would avoid bloodbath?

I’d take anything less than 3-0 on that showing last night - Newport were very very poor - Northampton however are full of confidence right now and in form and could well give us a pasting on Saturday - the players need to wake up and start playing for this club and show something, anything!!

Those 93 who went last night will mostly be going to work this morning , some maybe already at work - while those players will be taking it easy having a little train and pretending to be professionals- they need to have a long hard look at themselves and start doing the job they are paid for and do the job us as fans contribute to them doing

I'd happily see us lose Saturday against an in form team aslong as we attempted to try play football properly and look for feet or balls intoo the channel with players their ready to run onto it etc.

Why would you want a 442 when we have no wingers? (Despite the fact we were ace with that formation in 1980)

Bit optimistic to think that.

I'm hoping it would hurt the professional pride of the poorly-performing first team squad.

Harrison Smith looks a talent in the under 13s.
