Just drop Timlin and Guthrie for Parrett and Cassidy and it will be like having 11 players playing again.

Annoying that Cuthbert is injured but defensively we are still doing well.

Edit: for Saturday I would to with

Farman
Wildin Fernandez Nugent Stokes
Kennedy Parrett Digby Leesley
CMS Cassidy


We need Digby in midfield as without Soares and Byrom we don't have a sitting midfielder who isn't Timlin.

The added bonus is the young Barmy Army will love singing Fernandezs song at Cambridge and get an atmosphere going.

Cowley to come on at 65 mins. Lakin and List on 70 and 80.

Job done. Programme it in, don't even need a manager

I'd have Lakin the middle and Digby at CB. He's looked half tidy there.

On that, why was Lakin LW last wing? He was great in CM vs. Colchester.

Was he shit at the weekend?

Not shit, just didn't really contribute anything.

I just do not understand Timlin. Why did GW bring him on for Lakin and before any attacking sub against Vale, and why did he start last night?

I think Timlin is in the side because of his organizational and leadership capabilities. We've often seen players in the team because of 'what they bring' rather than because they're actually any fucking good. Simon Walton being a prime example of that. I think in a team void of leaders, presumably this is Westley's attempt to rectify that. I would imagine he probably works hard in training, too. Speculation, of course.

I honestly don't get it, he's awful. Even if he is a good leader or a good influence on those around him, when his contribution to actually playing football is so negative, I don't see that as a fair trade off.

Farman, Cuthbert when fit Stokes, Digby could all play for a top 5 club in this league. Wildin looked so uncomfortable in possession and must stop crosses going into the box, Carter offers nothing going forward anymore, Timlin should of stayed retired, Lakin tried and showed so good touches, Cowley works hard but lacks real quality when needed, Guthrie needs to go, 6"3 didn't win a header all night, didn't put himself about,List didn't effect the game again in his forward position, Leesley showed us what he is a conference squad player. Nugent i like but his distribution had been dreadful lately, Kennedy not on long enough to have an influence. Conference football next season!

"Farman, Cuthbert when fit Stokes, Digby" Agreed.

"Carter offers nothing going forward anymore" I think that's possibly to do with his midfield partners and the job he's being asked to do not being his natural position. Stick him as an attack-only midfielder and I think he'd be much better.

"Cowley works hard but lacks real quality when needed" I don't think Cowley has had a sniff of anything this season. He isn't being helped by anyone around him, and he isn't getting any decent service. I don't know how you can say he lacks quality when all he's been given are long aimless punts up the field for him to chase. I think if you can create good chances for him, he'd start banging them in for fun. I'm not going to be remotely shocked when we let him go and he goes elsewhere and absolutely smashes it.

"Nugent i like but his distribution had been dreadful lately" Lately? His distribution has always been awful. I honestly don't get it. He's a decent defender, but how can he be so fucking shit at passing? Like why is no-one working on this with him and getting him working almost solely on passing under pressure. It's all well and good him winning all his headers and most of his tackles, but if he's just going to whack the ball to the opposition, it's fucking pointless.

When we signed Cowley, my feeling was that we've snapped him up as one for the future. He has the quality, but from the level that he was signed from it's a big learning curve. But you don't score 70+ goals in two seasons with out having that nowse as to where the goal is.

And yet he never gets on the pitch.

Honestly, if I was Cowley, and they signed Revs and put him on the pitch ahead of me, I would have handed in my transfer request. I thought that was so disrespectful. Revs wasn't even remotely fit. Not to mention isn't even that good. It's not like he was hammering goals in all last season. If Westley would rather play Guthrie, Revs and Kelland fucking Watts up front ahead of Cowley, then that tells me that he's never going to get a look in. Presumably because he isn't big enough.

Considering how much we are struggling to score, the fact that we have a striker who has a proven track record, albeit at a lower level, sitting on the bench, is mind boggling to me. I just hope that he eventually gets a chance to prove himself. I doubt that's going to happen, though, especially now we've signed Cassidy (also a target man, isn't he?)

First game I’ve been to in a few years tired as I wanted to see whether we’re truly as bad as what I read on here.

Having looked at the team I feel that what we’re missing most of central midfielders. Timlin is an absolute waste of space and we’re literally playing with 10-men on the field with him there. The man can’t tackle, track back, control the ball or even give a pass that isn’t sideways. He reminds of a Stacy Long type player except he actually ‘cant’ pick a pass.

I was really impressed with our defending today, given that large spells of the game we were under the cosh and our back 4 were really impressive. However for every header we won and clearance we made, there was no midfield to pick the ball up.

Whilst Guthrie can certainly work harder, I think it’s unfair to say he didn’t win anything when he’s only getting 3 opportunities a game. I’d like to see him with some decent service.

Signing this new striker won’t help us I think, we could have Salah up front and we would score goals because first the first half we couldn’t get the ball beyond the half way line.

With the wind behind our backs that made their defence shaky and we clearly built on that. But that being said we looked our best when we got the ball on the floor. We do not have the strength mentally or physically in the centre of the park to contest aerial balls, we lost every first and second ball.

Personally I’d maybe look at a 4-1-2-2-1

Stokes, Nugent, Cuthbert, Wildin
Digby
Parret, Kennedy,
List. Lakin
Guthrie

Give Kennedy the freedom to play in the centre of the park behind Guthrie whilst hopefully getting a bit more of a physical presence from having Digby in midfield.

From what I saw Wildin offered more going forward that TVC (not really counting the first half as we were boxed in the entire time)

Correct.

Granted, I've not seen loads, but based on 2 of the last three games, Farman, Nugent, Digby (at CB), Lakin (in CM) are the only ones I'd want to see regularly.

I'll reserve judgement on Leesley as I didn't think he was terrible last night. Cowley hasn't had long enough for me to form a full opinion on yet. TVC looked better than Wildin but then the gap that was left there while the sub was being made looked better Wildin.

Stokes, Wildin, Timlin, Carter, List can all fuck off and then fuck off again when they get there.

What's wrong with Stokes? I don't think we'd get much better than him as a League Two full back.

I don't think the back four needs drastically changing. I think, when all of them are fit, a back four of TVC, Cuthbert, Nugent and Stokes is fine. Conceding goals isn't a problem, so I don't think we need to reinvent the wheel at the back.

That would free up Digby to play CM. I don't think he's exactly what we need there, but he would at least be a physical presence. Stick him along side a player with a bit of creativity and an engine, and I think we'd be better than we are right now. Parrett would have been that player 5 years ago, but I don't think he has the legs anymore to play the box-to-box role he used to play. I think he is best employed as a number 10 now.

I also don't think Carter is THAT bad. I don't think he's a starter, but he isn't awful.

List had a few good games at right back, but he isn't good enough to be anything other than a back-up right back. Timlin can go, as can Wildin.

Stokes is a solid left back and half decent at going forward.

Lakin is still streets ahead of Timlin. I'm sure his decision making will come with getting experience/coaching.
