  1. Not much on the bench in the way of midfielders
  2. Thorne, Martin and Butterfield all played last night for the under 23’s and therefore definitely won’t feature tonight. Im pretty sure you can’t make 4 subs even in a league cup match too.
  3. I think we’ll see a few changes from the weekend. As people have mentioned, the team needs to gel, but this is also a great chance to introduce some new players without risking too much. Malone in at left back. Keogh out for Davies/Pearce. Evans in at DM. Holmes in for Bryson. Jozefzoon to start in one of the wing positions. Marriott up top.

    Scott Malone - Signed on a 3 year deal

    Did anyone else find it weird he didn’t mention Martin when Gibson asked him which players he already knew at the club. He played with Waghorn at Millwall and went to a wedding with Keogh, but no mention of spending a season playing in the same team as Chris Martin.

    Maybe Bennett hasn't scored a match winning goal yet but this happened a few days ago... you don't remember?

    Martyn Waghorny - Signed on a 3 year deal

    Following in the footsteps of Wisdom. He parks where he wants. Do we know it's Waghorn's car or are we speculating? WNH? William 'Neil' Hughes? Return of the messiah.

    Matej Vydra - Signed for Burnley

    Not bothered either way if he leaves or not right now. If he does go, it seems like Waghorn is the plan and I can’t say that I’m too bothered about him either. If he stays then we can’t be sure he won’t work in Frank's system. A lot of people writing him off as a lone striker, but from what I’ve seen, the centre forward role so far looks very flexible and could see him roaming the pitch with two wide forwards cutting inside and/or switching positions. Think of it as a low budget version of Messi, Neymar and Suarez. Without the world class skill, theatrical rolling over or biting opponents. I think Vydra could work well in that sort of system and Marriott seems very similar to him but sacrificing some finishing skill for a bit more energy in his game. Bennett and Lawrence work well out wide cutting in and by the looks of things, so do Jozefzoon and Wilson.

    v Coventry (A) Match Thread

    Did you go to the match in Crocs?

    Matej Vydra - Signed for Burnley

    I like the idea of trying Vydra as a false 9 as others have mentioned. Pretty sure Marriott would be brought in as a like for like anyway. Any 3 of Vydra/Marriott, Lawrence, Wilson, Jozefzoon, Bennett, Thomas interchanging in the front 3 would be a handful for most teams and we'd probably still have at least one of Nugent, Jerome or Martin as an option from the bench to shake things up if the match isn't going our way. Of course, if we could get hold of Tammy Abraham I'd be much more confident of the season ahead.

    Just like you missed out the word reportedly when you claim we're "cash strapped"?
