    Godden isn't as mobile as McNulty.

    So provide some stats to stop your claim being anecdotal

    Thank god some of you lot aren't in charge, the answer to missed chances from completely dominating the game is to change formation

    Well something needs to be changed if we can't score... maybe going 2 upfront?

    Dominating a game with pretty football is one thing being effective & winning is another Godden has been isolated since he come pretty much in the 433.We don’t have a right winger/inside forward fit & Hiwula is not doing it from the left 4321 allows O’Hare freedom behind a front 2 of Godden Hiwula/Biamou

    I find your love for Biamou a bit odd, he's not fit enough and completely unproven, Godden isn't a player to work alongside a target man either by the look of it, he is the target man.

    What’s the alternative ? Baka or Hiwula ? Max when played with McNulty worked well with sparky stating he enjoyed playing alongside max.433 we don’t have the inside forwards/wingers at the club good enough for me My view that hasn’t changed since pre season,either bring in 2 proper players or change it 4321 keeping the 3 midfielders & give O’Hare freedom.

    Last season Peterborough played 41212 with Godden upfront with a partner when he played scoring 18 goals according to wiki.

    Can't see the cautious Robins going two up front away from home.
    But it will be another defeat unless Robins changes something.

    Baka is a better bet

    I watched them both in the under 23’s the other week Max looked a clear level above Baka was his usual self we are used to seeing bullied by young kids at the back.

    I’ve got no problem with 433 with the right wide players we don’t have them we are not scoring enough hence the leave goal difference.The wide players are not good enough hence Godden being isolated his confidence will start going backwards soon Peterborough played him in a 2 we did this with Chaplin went against how he was used at former club.

    As you wish

    McNulty played 1,945 minutes without Biamou and scored 10 goals (goal every 194.5 minutes, or one every 2.16 games)
    McNulty played 1,749 minutes with Biamou and scored 15 goals (goal every 116.6 minutes, or one every 1.3 games)

    Now perhaps you can use that supposedly photographic memory of yours to remember those stats and not bring this up again.

    Picking the team is hard. If we go with our best 11 players within reason formation wise, it would mean O’Hare out wide but he’s much better centrally.

    He scored 28 goals not 25 and he scored 1 more with Biamou on the pitch than without

    100% agreed with Keresley on all the points above.

    There could be a case for starting Baka in the front 3 since Hiwula is clearly lacking in confidence and Kasta hasn't proven himself as a starter.

    I would like to see Max paired with Godden at some point as well (as a plan B in games) but as others have pointed out that would require a major change in formation.

    Agree with most of this Dreamer. Agree with the recall of Kelly as the DM. Can't bring myself to drop Walsh though as he's class and I really want to see him play more advanced once Kelly is back. O'Hare should be the focal point of our team but as an attacking midfielder - I don't think he's in his best position as part of a front 3.

    We can only wish Dreamer!

    Just as the sun is guaranteed to rise each morning, Grendel is 100% guaranteed to repeat some pointless and flawed stat millions of times over. The difference of course is that the sun is useful and serves a purpose.

    Most people's final words are usually along the lines of 'I loved my family and had a great life.' I'm personally convinced that on his death bed Old Grendel will summon up the strength to whisper....'statistics show that in the 2017 season McNulty was more effective without Biamou'...before finally dying a 100% contented and happy man......

    It’s Dreamer that lives on statistics

    We should play Jordan Ponticelli beside Godden surely?

    For the hundredth time, and this is all I’m saying on the matter, it’s nowt to do with distance for the vast majority.

    I'd keep the team pretty much the same as vs Tranmere, maybe Mason in for McCallum if he did pick up an injury?

    Looking at MK Dons form of late we are fucked whatever we do to be honest.

    Anyway, don't get this demand for Max to play. I like the lad, like his character, hope he comes good, and think some are a bit unfair on him.

    But it seems his reputation is growing by not playing!

    Done well playing in a 2 with sparky & I think people are seeing this 433 is isolating Godden & if not him who else
    Do we have if we went into a 2

    Why would we change the system? It's taken long enough to get it working and the team's doing well.

    Ha! Beyond some banter, I actually think that Godden situation is tricky. I really like 4-3-3 as it is resulting in some brilliant possession football that I love to watch. But in that formation it leaves Godden battling on his own all day long against two 6'4 L1 centre backs. I think in general he's playing the role well but can't see him doing that for 90 minutes of every game this season. You could even argue that his energy should best be utilised in finishing chances vs. battling himself into the ground every game. In that case he needs a strong strike partner in certain game situations. But that involves a change of formation - I don't have the answer but I'm sure Robins is working on it.

    This is a serious question for Grendel or anyone else who likes stats. Where does an away following of 6,000+ rank us in a league table of away followings for a league game in England this season or last? Given restrictions on away followings at Prem grounds for league games I would think we'd be up there in terms of largest away following this weekend for example across all 4 Divisions?

    We don’t have a fit right sided player for next to Godden,Hiwula cannot seem to be able to finish & with a number 10 I think we will see the best of O’Hare.Have the wide players performed well this season yet ? Most games they have been passengers leaving Godden isolated
