From an entertainment factor - would we prefer an edge of your seat 3-3 draw? Or a solid defensive 0-0 draw? Either way, I’ll be happy with a draw. But after Tuesday, I think some of those fringe players have now got their tails up and will fancy it today.

I’m strangely confident for today. After Tuesday and how everyone eventually fitted together so well, I think it’s given them confidence in spite of the injuries, that they can deliver. Cheltenham are nothing special and if we can deal with their aerial bombardment I think with Doyle back and Kachunga finally starting to show some form we can win this. Both Johnson and especially Gordon looked more than comfortable in their unfamiliar roles so hopefully with another similar performance today, they can do just as well. Wanderers to win 3-1.

I think the first 11 picks itself today. My only issue is there won't be many options off the bench. Basically Delf and that's it really as far as attacking options go 

I think for that reason, Xav will be the one on the bench. If things are going wrong, he could change the game.

The only way Delf changes a game is by going off. Doesnt look interested

I completely get where you’re coming from, and reading Evatt’s comments I actually think he’ll go with Delf and have Xav on the bench, BUT it’s a funny way to rationalise it, essentially saying - I’ll start my shit player so that the good one can come on and change the game 😂

Wouldn't be surprised to see Delf start to give the full back more cover but bring on Xav with half an hour ish to go.

Gordon at RB & Johnston in the MJ role did really well on Tuesday but we'll get a better idea how good they are today when they are given more of a defensive test.

Quietly confident.

Just put mine on, ready!

Bastard fleeing out there. Quite nice though, very refreshing. 

Which keeper scores today?

North wind. Keepers will hit Shaz in the Directors Box.  Except we’ll be fannying around at the back.

Be fine in ESL, Arctic in WSL.

It swirls about though, but if its a north wind, it will come over the north stand wont it? To be honest, can't see Dixon doing it, as he tends to throw it.

Think that's harsh

And, either way, we need a bit of something unpredictable imo

It was just a hunch, definitely not saying he is, I haven't seen enough of him.  Just has the look of someone that might have that as part of his make up.  Ronaldo was a bit of a show pony in his early days at OT (the 6 stepovers and feinting to cross or shoot a few times, then doing neither very well) - and he did OK in his career.  Ameachi has potential, hope it comes to fruition with us.

My geography A level tells me that the North Stand is really the North West Stand, but you’re right it does swirl.  Sunglasses needed for ESL I think.
