I also left Walsh out due to injury but probably goes in for Wootton if fit


Pawlett goes on my subs bench with Ugbo, Cisse & Seager. I would include Walsh instead Williams as we need one big centre half (don't forget the last season we were letting in many goals from set pieces). It would be interesting if we can get another left defender, but I hope he is experienced as we don't need another Hendry.


Walsh is out for probably the rest of the season.


We know that. :roll:


So why did you say you “would include Walsh instead of Williams”? :roll:


Because the poster asked for the most likely starting XI ( (when everyone's available), but we still referred to the injury.


Fair enough, I wasn’t sure you knew that’s all.

I think Nesbit when fit is the most exciting player we have and would like to see him and Pawlet on either side of midfield running at opposition defences and getting the ball in hard. We seem to be frightened lately about crossing the halfway line. We need to put free kicks into the box not pass it two yds with nobody set and it ending up with defence or Nichols. Infuriating to watch and not practiced by any other team I can think of

No Tavernier? Our best player at the wobblers


I missed that game.

You can be mighty thankful. It was dreadful. I wish I hadn't bothered.

I agree but would like to see Nesbitt come on as a super sub to inject life into a game (when their defenders are tiring) than to start.

Hear, hear.
Quick free kicks make sense if the opposition aren't ready and you can get a forward in on goal, but its usually our team that aren't ready. The ball is then passed back to the taker, who is in no better position than 2 seconds earlier and is being rapidly closed down by the opposition.

Edited after change of signings:
If no one else joins (bar Tymon and Ward) and everyone was available (bar Walsh) would this be the best starting line up?
4-2-3-1. (Understudy)
Nicholls

Williams / (Brittain)
Ward (Walsh if he was fit)
Cisse
Tymon / (Lewington)

Gilbey
Upson / (McGrandles)

Tavernier / (Agard)
Aneke
Pawlett / (Nesbitt)

Sow / Ugbo

I think that's as good as it gets but still screams of being short of a goalscoring number nine.
I think we could maybe get by with that lot of defenders if we were scoring goals, but we just don't have a source of regular goals. We've got 2 days left: we just have to bring in a penalty box striker before the end of January.
But who? Ay, there's the rub.

Is it just me that's not seeing where all this 'Cisse is going to be our new centre back' has come from? Granted I wasn't at Coventry, but he's never been played there as anything other than cover when necessary. He may be good there, but he's a CDM for me that can play at CB when needed.

If i'm honest, for me he is a bit like Agard. Nice chap, but not good enough. I get we are the third tier, I get that we cannot pay anywhere near higher divison wages, but I fully reckon we could offload these two and get in far better replacements.
