The Bristol Rovers Question

Post by Bevan » Sun Aug 26, 2018 6:48 am

Next up on Tuesday night is the Mighty Bristol Rovers who shouldn’t be underestimated

The Question is, do we keep the same team to carry on the momentum from yesterdays win or do we change it and give Ingram another chance, maybe put in Washington to see if we can get him a goal?

Does Kakay come back in? Could Hall get a run out? Chair? Goss?

Based on what? First half yesterday he appeared to be under instructions to win the ball and ping it out wide to Hemed , a task he failed at because his quality of delivery isn't what is required. Second half he was back to his usual harrying in the midfield, short snappy passes and supporting the attackers, a role he looked much more comfortable in and, as such, improved his overall game performance.
Even though I know it won't happen I would put the same side out to give them time to work together as a unit but the tolls the body pays to play modern day football means that there will be changes, I expect Lumley to be dropped just because that is what happens and I don't think SMC is a massive innovator.

I wonder if our hands slightly tied by parent club's not wanting Hemed or Wells cup tied? Sylla might be Blackburn bound, so maybe we are left with Smith/Washington?

If Lumley has come in and done well, see no merit at all in bringing Ingram back in - need to build confidence at present and consistency will help.

Rangel
Leistner

Bidwell

He didn't play a minute at the world cup but did train so it shouldn't be a factor, I believe the club allowed him to be late back just so he could have a family holiday like the rest of the squad.
A quick check on a stats site confirms he was the same as the other two in midfield with a lower pass completed % in the 1st which confirms what I saw at the match. If they are to be the 3 in midfield then keep them together to improve their understanding of each other IMO.

We have both Hemed and Wells on season long loans. So, being cup-tied shouldn't be a problem.

I would definitely play them both on Tuesday - neither has played any football this season (before yesterday). It will help with their match fitness and building understanding on the pitch.

I'd also play both of them from the start for the reasons you state.
Pav for Eze is a no brainer IMO, also put Kakay back in to rest Rangel.
Play Hall: we need to get him back in somehow.
Keep the rest of the team the same, especially Lumley.
Try to give Chair and Smyth some game time from the bench (although I expect SMc is intending to loan Smyth out so I doubt we'll see him at all)

SMC saying on the offish that he will “ utilise the squad” for the Rovers game, so a lot of changes to come. Smyth and Sylla could be out on loan by then.
I still can't come to terms with Manning and, seemingly, Smyth going out on loan especially if the recipient teams are Championship rivals.

Yeah based on his comments there could be loads of changes tonight: hope he doesn't try to shoehorn players into the team out of position as a defeat tonight will wipe out any momentum gained from Saturday. Our squad isn't strong enough for wholesale changes: he could be putting a lot of pressure on himself if he's not careful.

Same here, don’t mess too much with a winning formula. Hemed and Wells should definitely play as need match fitness.

Wasn’t too sure about Manning going out on loan, and definitely unhappy we’re letting Smith go too. I fully understand we need to survive first and foremost, but keeping our younger talent around to bring through seems essential longer term. Smyth looked like he could contribute last season so don’t really want him bolstering the ranks of a competitor.

I hope he doesn't rest Toni tonite. He looked like he enjoyed the win on Saturday and I think he should get another chance at keeping the ball rolling as captain.
Come on you Sooopa ........
