So what do we next Saturday if you were in the hot seat.

Do you want a strong team or an experimental team that shows some intent and thought for the future with youth.

I would like to see Feeney, Dixon and Charters get a look in. Maybe Fish and Bell off the bench.

THoughts... and lets try and play some football b4 the lap of honour :)

On the basis all I pick are fit, and we’ll pretty much finish 10th regardless, I’d go...

Norman,
Tanner, Hayden, Feeney, Armer,
Guy, Furman,
Walker, Charters, Patrick,
Scott.



Subs: Farman, Anderton, Devine, Riley, Dixon, Mellish, Alessandra.

I’d not expect anything like it though!

Kayode, Anderton and Mellish have got to play. Three points up for grabs and you’ve got to play your best team.

I wouldn't want Walker appearing as he is a loan player - the team we play should be all with a view to next season. Similarly Anderton shouldn't be anywhere near the squad as, hopefully, he's "played" his last match for us.

Anderton should be with us next year, he is an honest pro who has lost his place to a young player who has excelled since Christmas.
Armer isn't the finished article yet and needs someone like Anderton pushing him for his place.

Based on his limited action from the Bench, and the fact PNE don’t have a Manager still, I’d be more than happy if we were to try and nab him full time in the Summer. A sideways look at Armer shows what can happen when you take the gamble...

We're a professional football club.
I would expect the manager to pick his strongest team for a league fixture.
Scott, Dixon etc stake their claims next season.

Feeney is not fit is he? Still. Anderton will have to play, we don't have any other defenders. Scott for kayode, got to be worth a shot.

Philips and Lumsden going on how kayode will be in league 1 next year. Is it just me that doesn't see it? When Zanzala got his chance he looked a much better player. In terms of strength, pace, guile I don't see that kayode has developed over the year. Our top scorer is in midfield.

Edited to say I think Walker looks good. But bringing him on as a sub then taking him off again when he is playing well is hardly going to inspire him to sign for us

Definitely play Scott the lad deserves a chance to prove he’s got what it takes to step up to this level.
Charters and Dixon as well for at least half the game. Bell hasn’t benn mentioned is he still not fully recovered from his Covid experience.

Feeney played a planned 60mins for the Reserves in their Cup game midweek, suggesting he’s just about ready.

Rotherham are more than likely playing in L1 next Season barring a great escape, so if they do go down, Kayode will probably in L1...

Beech has said he had a recurring back injury which is why he came off

It’ll not matter who plays really.

Looking at the league table we are only 11 points off the top 3. Even an average return since Christmas would have seen us in an automatic promotion position.

An unbelievable opportunity wasted to get out of this league.

I’d like to see us play a rigid 4-3-3 with Alessandra, Zanzala and Patrick up front.
Maybe bringing on Kayode I’m the second half if we’re behind on throw-in distance stats

It sounds a bit risky but might be worth a try.

And maybe bring Gime Toure on for a couple of step overs on 85 minutes and Cedwyn Scott on with 30 seconds left.

Surely this game must only feature players who will be with us next season or are staking a claim to be so. However, I fully expect the same from Beech because can you imagine if he started Scott and he scored a hat trick what excuse would he use then.

All managers moan about something, some do it differently behinds the scenes we hear afterwards sometimes.

Covid was something to moan about like the floods but Simmo and Curle just picked themselves up and behaved with dignity throughout the process - even our players helping those hard hit by the floods.

Beech just moans like a bitch about it though constantly and to top it off throws other things in to make it sound like he has had it worse than any manager in history.

I could put up with his constant excuse making if he won us something or at least got us into the play-offs, most of us weren't even demanding automatic when we were top - the play offs would have done us but he couldn't even manage that.

We need to give the youngsters a chance, pointless playing anyone on loan unless they are guaranteed to be back next season.

Just don't start with them all, our first 45 minutes have been an embarrassment the last couple of games, and they'll only get pulled at half-time. Bring them on when how we are supposed to be playing has been agreed between CB and the players, if this is agreed before kick-off, that would be awesome.

It could even be the elusive plan B.
