    Sounds like you are the one having the melt down.

    Am I missing something or do we not think Kwame Thomas will be in MR's plans? I thought he showed real promise back end of last season

    Apologies if I missed him being injured/leaving. Was he in Spain?

    To be fair the best qualified on here is Slower Than Platt and I think he's said he's probably not ready for first team consideration.

    Robins intimated at the kit launch night that Ponticelli would have a chance to be in and around the squad but did make a point of saying that he'd only been here a year. Suspect he'll be given a chance at some point, all depends whether he can grasp it. Clearly has potential based on the goals he's scored at under 18 level but first team is a big step up from there. Maybe will need to prove himself in the under 23s first.

    ...................Burge................
    Kelly Evans..Willis.Stokes.Haynes
    ................Doyle...Kelly.............
    ...Jones.......................Reid (if still here)
    ...............Biamou..Beavon..........

    Obrien
    McDonald
    Moorhouse
    Stevenson
    McNulty (to replace Reid)
    Vincenti
    Grimmer
    Hyam
    Ponticelli
    K.Thomas

    The squad has more depth than we have had in a long time.
    I would like to see a loanee in the mould of J.Jones to cover the other wing or shake things up if Jones disappears in games.
    I would also like to see a proven scorer at this level signed.
    With two such signings we could challenge the play off places

    Ponticelli seems to know where the back of the net is and that's important, I suspect Robins will ease him in starting on the subs bench, doubt he will start, as for Kwame Thomas I too thought when he came back from injury the back end of last season he did okay had a presence and scored one or two, biggish lad so unless we sign one I expect he could start, I hope our impatient fans give him a fair chance.

    Also we must remember this is almost a complete new team possibly from one to eleven we have 9 new signings perhaps with a couple more to come, add Stokes who missed vertically all last season a few youth who have been added to the squad and then there's the loan market. I expect a stuttering start just hope our supporters are patient.

    Breen. Breen.

    Think 442, not decided yet. 351 might suit with the lack of pace.

    I think that would lack pace if I'm honest.

    Quality will make up for the lack of pace!

    Football manager head on here.

    GK
    O'Brien

    CB
    Willis
    MacDonald
    Stokes

    WB
    Grimmer/Vincenti
    Haynes

    CM
    Doyle
    Kelly

    FW
    Mcnulty/Vincenti
    Biamou
    Beavon

    Wouldn't mind seeing a 3-4-3 variation like above. Beavon and McNulty playing off Biamou, making runs in the channels. Could fit Vincenti either up top or at wing back.

    Having gone to the friendly yesterday my starting 11 for Notts County would be:

    O'Brien
    Grimmer
    Willis
    McDonald
    Stokes
    Kelly
    Doyle
    Vincenti
    Mcnulty
    Jones (do think we need another option for the wide positions of the 3 behind the striker)
    Biamou

    For the starting XI i would love MR to go with

    OBrien
    Grimmer
    Hyam
    McDonald
    Pearson assuming he signs
    Doyle
    Kelly
    Vincenti
    Biamou
    McNulty
    Moorehouse assuming he signs

    An entirely new XI from last season. Make a statement that all those players with us from last year contributed to our relegation including Thomas, Stevenson, DKE et al. Make it clear that this is a fresh slate and nobody can dine out on reputation....they need to win their places in the side.

    The above might be our best side in any case
