    Whoops. Choose any three from the four options depending on performance and how likely to be playing on Saturday

    I have a feeling this is going to be a case of who has the better second string.

    FGR top of the league and a big game on Saturday vs Exeter who are 2nd. Can see them resting most of the team.

    Would imagine Robins will take the opportunity to rest a few and test out some fringe players.

    I would like Bremang, Wakefield, Bapaga and Ngandu to get some experience, and see if any can stake a claim if we get further injuries. I would probably give McFaz a run out just to get the Rotherham game out of his system (otherwise he will have longer to dwell on it). We ought to have a stronger second string than them, but it often comes down to attitude on the night.

    What has happened to Callum Maycock?, seems to have disappeared into the abyss. Could be the perfect opportunity of bringing him back into the squad, to see how he does.

    They obviously don’t think he’s good enough so why bother? Would much rather players like Eccles, Bapaga etc get a chance. Maycocks time has come and gone.

    Don't understand why they don't release him if that's the case.

    I would start Godden who needs goals in his game as a number 10 feeding off Biamou as the number 9. Play Kasteneer and Westbrooke wide each side, with Kelly and Walsh in the middle.Rest O'Hare on the bench. Play McFazdean and Rose with McCallum and Dabo who needs to play after his nightmare the other day.. See how that works with a 4-4-2

    Jeez - that's a much stronger side/squad than I was expecting (maybe with our next game being Sunday he was happy to do this-bit surprised though, and he will probably get stick if Kelly, Rose etc get injured!(

    Just arrived....never been here before. Feels like a village club, and of course it kind of is. Took 5 minutes to walk around the whole Nailsworth town centre at a slow pace. Stopped at Stroud on the way down and there's little by way of diversion there either. Feels like the sort of place you'd come on a walking weekend, not a professional football game.

    Bit surprised to see both Rose and Fadz play. Thought it'd eiher be fadz and someone like Williams or Hyam and Rose together to give them time to gel for the weekend.

    Kelly I doubt will play the full 90. Likes of Westbrooke and Baka playing to get minutes. Guess Biamou is injured.

    Christ it's like going to an early pre season friendly. At least if it's a dire game we can amuse ourselves by counting the total crowd (won't take long though!!)
