Impressed with Dacosta after a difficult start. He's no Dabo but looks a good back up. Thought Sheaf played well too and James looked classy for the short period he was on. Eccles looked good too.

I like Bapaga and think he will be a good player but we shouldn't expect too much too soon. Maybe needs a bit more strength which should come.

Sorry to say I thought Giles was poor again. Our defence looks much less secure with him and he only got forward few times. I don't think this formation works if the wing backs don't get forward.

given we’ve signed James on loan I think the two coach story is a myth
Maybe but its ot far from the truth.
We are doomed while we own fuck all bar a training ground worth what Leicester a similar sized club to us payed for their training pitch.

Shipley clearly isn't fit and I thought you wanted to give players minutes?
Bapaga has only just turned 18 and 15 mins seems about right
Maybe Robins wanted to give the players that started a chance to get back into the game?
I've no doubt James will start against Sheff Wed.
Shipley has been getting minutes hasn't he? It's pointless giving him anything when even after 15 minutes he is not bothering.

It really isn't just this game is it? Pretty much every time we are losing its the same, delay any changes.

I really like O'Hare but that number 10 role is too much for him. We need someone who can be more effective in support of the front man, running off the shoulder and scoring. I'm old enough to remember Ferguson and Wallace. if we had a pairing like that today it would make all the difference.
o'hare does look like he works best alongside another CM/ACM like in the box, but can we afford to do that again after shipping so many goals earlier in the season?

Biamou made them into chances. The volley where he opened up his body from cross which was a good save I doubt Ohare would have even got a touch on it.
O Hare isn’t a number 9 the ironic thing is he gets slated but his movement in the penalty area is light years away ahead of both biamou and Bakayoko who never get space as they are just not capable

He's played 98 minutes in the previous 5 games, so no, he hasn't been getting minutes!

Tbh, I know what your 'discussions' are like on here Nick, they go on forever as you have to have the last word. Feel free to, I'm off to enjoy my afternoon :)(y)

Must admit though his finishing is really frustrating to watch sometimes.

I dont understand why we made like for like changes.

Would have been better to bring Baka on to rest Max and play someone up with him.

Then again I would have e taken Shipley off after 25 mins. Like at Wycombe.

I really don't get our tactics when it comes to subs.

It was probably to look at James in the role he'll probably play
