Are we making the most of having 5 subs? We've only used all 5 in one of the last 8 games. Quite often we've ended better than we've started with the subs we have brought on, but could we be doing more, especially with the large squad we have?

Southend     3
Scunthorpe     5
Stevenage     3
Newport     2
Crawley     4
Harrogate     3
Leyton Orient     3
Forest Green     3

Hurst has always been reluctant to use subs. The 5 sub rule puts him at an even greater disadvantage in terms of changing games compared to other managers than normal

I guess it would be pretty daft to use all 5 given we have a manager who only makes subs with 15 mins left every week.

Useful (maybe) to see the stats for the average number of subs used for other Div 2 teams.  I do have the feeling that other teams use subs more effectively.  Why does this not surprise me?

Would be interesting to see a breakdown of how effective making 5 subs has been since the introduction of it. Not just for Town, but across all leagues. There's an argument to suggest making 5 subs within a short space of time would disrupt the flow of your team and put you at risk of performing worse.

When you're chasing games, are we often are, I struggle to think of reasons as to why you shouldn't use all your attacking options.

I get that we're not exactly blessed with quality throughout the squad, but not going for it and effectively defending a 2-1 defeat is frustrating as hell.   How many times have we turned the game around by just making standard changes?

Might as well throw everything at it including the kitchen sink and maybe, just maybe, sneak something back from losing positions every now and then.

Their wasn't a performance or flow against Orient, Harrogate or Crawley any anything would have improved a dire situation


You can please some of the forumites some of the time but not all the forumites all of the time
