Quick round up - I may have missed some, please add if I have.

Excludes players we had on loan.

Flanagan played a full game for Burton - interestingly McFadzean was on the bench

Baldock played a full game for Sheff Utd - and scored in a 3-0 win - a header!

Alli scored one and had two assists for Spurs v Southampton

Williams back from injury and played a full game for Millwall in a draw against leaders, Wolves. Martin was on the bench

Ojo played 86 minutes for Fulham. They won 4-2 away at Cardiff.

Spence was on the bench for Ipswich

Gleeson on the bench for Birmingham

In L1, Reeves scored for Charlton in their 3-1 defeat by Southend.

They in a different league.

We only started Williams Walsh and Aneke from last season and people on here think he should be given more time to put a side together. Any idea what he's been doing since April. Although I don't blame the players its the formation systems attitude and general malaise which has got us in this position.

Don't quite get this: when you say you "don't blame the players" did you mean you don't question their potential ability or something? Because if "the attitude and general malaise" have got us into this position, then surely the players have to share some of the blame for their part in the attitude and seeming malaise around the club?

I'm guessing you don't really expect a proper answer and that's rhetorical, but I've put a bit of thought into that anyway. They would have an interesting line-up. I would guess at:
----------------------Martin---------------------
------McFadzean---Flanagan---Williams-------
Spence----------------------------------Baldock
--------------Gleeson----Carruthers------------
----------Alli----------------------Reeves-------
-----------------------Ojo-----------------------

I think Ojo prefers being out on the left wing, but him, Alli, and Reeves could all do a good job as a false 9 and so would be pretty interchangable. They would be able to pass through our defense with ease. Gleeson and Carruthers would just run our midfield into submission. Their defence would be their weakest point, Flanagan and Williams not being the strongest defenders (physically strong I mean), and Sow and Aneke would be able to bully them a little bit (KMF would be up for a battle though). That being said, I'm fairly certain that Martin would not be troubled much.

I'd go for a 4-1 win for them.

I haven't forgotten MK Dons third-highest goalscorer - he's scored this season, unlike MK Dons other third-highest goalscorer... ;)
