    Possession will be lower, need pace, no Jones thank you. In fact As much as I like Wyke, his performance was so lethargic v Plymouth I wouldn't mind him rested too if that's what he needs.

    I know you hate Jones regardless Abbomf and if he scored a hat trick you would still jeer him if he misplaced a pass in same game. However if your now turning on Wyke who got battered and bruised whilst working his nuts off, who the hell would you have up front. Poleon has been hopeless as has Patrick lately.

    Did you read my words and then change them to whatever suits you?

    I don't hate Jones and often said l'd be happy to see him in another position. The last time 2 days ago. I don't rate him as a striker, that's all, never did. If he's outside or wide in a 3 we might see a productive player, bring it on.

    Suggesting a one game rest for Wyke, IF it's beneficial for him, is the opposite of "turning on him".

    Don’t agree with the content, but the sentiment is spot on. People who accuse those of hating someone just because they are highlighting weaknesses in players are void of argument imho.

    It’s the same when those pointed out JH weaknesses were accused as haters. Utter crap!

    Rubbish!!Every comment you make about Jones implies that you despise his presence in the team. It's just total negative. Also having axed Wyke and Jones you haven't said who should replace them.

    Think it was perspective rather than anything other.. People clamouring for him to be involved when in reality he had scored 3 times against the side 92nd in the league and once against man city's 17 year old backline, whilst looking out of his depth at league one level

    Come on Kevin, JH has NO weaknesses in his game. The perfect centre forward. Joking aside, I've always thought that what JH needed was to be played with another big man and play the battering ram game. Hawley & Campbell being the perfect exponents of it.

    Doing bits with that line up. It's a wonderful selection of pace, power, panache. It's down right dirty.

    Catmuck!! Please stop making things up, look at my quote that you used to disprove your nonsense. I'd be happy for him to be in the team as long as it is not as a lone striker or one of a front two. Nor have I "axed" Wyke, what are you on? All I said was that he was lethargic v Plymouth, very, if he is out of sorts, been pushed too hard, taken too much punishment, all after a missed pre-season etc etc Then I would be happy for him to have a rest IF it's needed and IF it's useful.........hope that's clear?

    Killa at LB, showed glimpses of apptitude last season and would allow Thompson in at CB and more balance.

    Too slow, scary in an away game.

    But reliable, pace isn't the only way to play.

    Yes they were. Away game last of season at Cambridge once. Loads went down from Bradford, Needed to win to go up. They murdered their defence, if I have the right game.. We won at a canter. Think Ron Atkinson may have been their gaffer then??

    Our dream front two today would be Moore at Rotherham, type player ( I know that won’t happen) and Charlie. JH just not mobile enough for me but that’s my opinion, but in the air, in the box he would do a job.

    JH was all over the pitch, He never stopped running, Mobility was one of his better attributes, He just didn't score enough.

    I really have no idea what team hell pick but I'll be shocked if the formation isn't 4-5-1.

    Even though we all know Wyke can't play up top by himself he's still going to do it.

    Didn’t mean it in that sense S. Yes agree he was all over and ran his Charlie’s off. It’s hard to explain but tanners v roundabouts spring to mind.Bit like Rory was in defence. Great in the air but could be turned easily against pacey opposition. Not as some may deem as “hating” in any way!.
