Discuss the Rochdale vs. Coventry City match, tactics and predictions
Won't be as easy as it looks on paper. I think we'll win 1-0 (Max) and hopefully Accrington hold Rotherham to a draw and we go top.
Jamie Allen back in for this, maybe alongside Shipley behind Godden. Ohare Giles Biamou all off the bench if we've not broken the deadlock after an hour.
Can't see O'Hare not starting after Saturday. He deserves to really.
Allen & O’Hare in for Westbrooke & Shipley 100% probably stick with Godden make the changes from the box to 2 up front with O’Hare if & when it’s needed.
can’t see anything but an away win 2-0
Need to be careful here, big game Tuesday we need to be fit and ready for but this lot are no pushovers. Held Newcastle and Gillingham at home recently and beat Rotherham away in Dec.
I’d play the same team that started last match I think. But as always depends what the performance data is saying. If we need to rest one or two for Tuesday I would and keep them on the bench if things aren’t going our way after an hour.
Massive game, biggest since the last and until the next. Three points going into the next three could be vital. Need to make sure we aren’t looking past this one.
Agree, we need to be thinking about resting people for Tuesday and go for subs if we're struggling to win. They're not on a great run
Play our strongest 11 forget resting people let’s take each game as serious as possible 3 points is what’s needed
Its not simply three points this game three points next, our next game is a six pointer against a team come down from the championship who battered us earlier in the season.
We will play them off the park Tuesday no chance we lose to Rotherham I’m certain of it
0-6 City, fuck it were due to give someone a spanking
according to BBC page, and CCFC site, we're not playing until Saturday??
A loss isn't the end of the world. Remember that.
With a week off for this match and then 3 huge games (Rotherham, Sunderland and Ipswich) in succession, I think this set of fixtures will define our season. Cannot take Rochdale lightly, and I'm tempted to go 2 up top with the same lineup that finished the last game except I'd bring Dabo back in and maybe replace McCallum with Giles to give him some game time (and also because McCallum's performances the last couple of games suggest he could do with a rest).
Silly to rest players for rotheram. Lets guarantee 3 pts sat then think about rotheram
Table way too close to risk 0 pts in hope of increasing chances of 6
I'm bricking it about this already. It all seems so real after moving up to 2nd with a game in hand.
Let's just hope game goes ahead, weather forecast looks awful and they already had game called off Saturday with waterlogged pitch.
Wouldn't be the worst thing if it was called off. Extra recovery time before Rotherham and Sunderland.
I'd rather keep momentum going, if it's called off we won't have played for 10 days.
I get your point but I'd rather get this game done, we're in good form and beating teams lower in the table. If this gets called off and our form falters in the more difficult games we might find it harder to pick up three points later on.
Only two home games in that run though, a win and a draw.
would for fans with tickets who cant make a Tuesday
Is Dabo 1 booking away from a suspension, was he trying to get sent off Saturday to miss this one and be available for the next 3, if so we may see Pask start this game. Other than that i can see the same starting team from Southend
Yes that would be a shame.
Another two I thibk
I think he is two bookings from suspension Eakin mentioned Saturday that it had to be league bookings and he is now on eight.
Regarding Rochdale, play our best eleven, no good “resting” players for Rotherham, take the next game as the most important and that’s Rochdale, get the game won and move on.
Robins' great achievement in imho is to give us something positive to play for right until the end of the season. People up this thread are "bricking it" How good is that. Except for the last two games last season, we have always been in contention. Compared to the previous 10, 20, 30 seasons that is a fantastic achievement on scant resources. It's just more fun being a City fan.
Pask looks ok. Keep playing Dabo until he gets his quota
Anyone in the Milton Keynes area need a lift? I have an empty car.
Dad is going to Bristol v West Brom (not by choice - he was obligated)
Will probably leave around 10.30 or so.
Wash. Your. Mouth. Out.
Trying to get sent off ? Lol you serious that challenge was at 1-0 he goes off we could of dropped points hence why robins took him off
It wouldn't be the first time it's happened, not an issue anyway as he is two bookings off a suspension.
Loving the positivity.
