    Our record against Rochdale is appalling. They're having a crap season though and we should go there to win the game. Chaplin ahead of Hiwula for me, Hiwula is really poor with his back to goal. Chaplin for a small player holds the ball up reasonably well.

    Yep. Full agreement with that.

    I would fully expect Bakayoko to be dropped too. Especially after apparently annoying MR in turning up late to the ground on Saturday.

    Burge

    Sterling Willis Hyam Mason

    Thomas Kelly Meyler Wakefield or Bayliss

    Enobakhare

    Chaplin

    A deserved win. 2-1 or 3-1.

    First goal in this will be vital, could be a few in it for us i rekon but if they score first our heads will drop

    Agree. I think if they score first it could be a substantial defeat.

    At the moment fully expecting a defeat. Chances are MR will set us up more defensively away from home. Probably have a decent amount of the ball but look totally toothless with it. Don't expect to create as many chances as previous games, so highly unlikely we'll be scoring many, if at all.

    We have to get a minimum of 3 points from this and the Walsall game. Ideally more. As others have hinted, first goal likely to be key.

    For a team down the lower reaches of the table they do score a fair bit. 40 goals in the league so far this season. Ian Henderson is the man to watch. Has been involved in half of their goals this season. (15 goals, 5 assists).

    I wanna try that little chippy across the road out, the one that's built into the row of houses. I can tell it's a good un.

    I've got a big decision to make here, trying not to go to mad on the bevy so was thinking of finding somewhere to go for a spot of lunch pre match.
    However, I'm hearing great things about this chippy and really want to try it, though that will inevitably lead to a lunch time sesh before the game.

    How has nobody gone in for him yet? Would anyone else rather we had looked at him instead of chaplin??

    Weirdly if you look at his career he's one of those who has only started banging them in whilst he's well into his 30s. Perhaps a few clubs have overlooked him and are guilty of being slightly agist...

    He was a right handful against Spurs last season though. I really rate him.

    Your moniker makes you sound like an aficionado. Praise indeed for the chippy.

    Ha ha. Hadn't spotted that connection. David Speedie was indeed renowned for his consumption of chips. :-)

    Has scored consistently for the last few years and a proven league 1 goalscorer, why aren't we looking at players like this instead

    Because it's no real foundation for a long term plan. In the short term OK but long term not.

    To be fair, we just sold two players six months after signing them.

    Inspirational story, heard him on Talksport a few months back sounded like a good lad and a fantastic character

    Beat cancer twice, came back and scored the goal that kept Rochdale up last season. Absolute warrior.

    Will be our last away game for a while (countless away trips taking their toll without much to show for it) Seasons over in terms of promotion, will take a Draw after our current run, to keep them at arms length.

    Can see us winning this though. 2 nil.

    Bakayoko should be at least be given a start to prove himself after recent injury.

    What's the connection between chips and getting trousered?

    If you're on the train from London there are no northern rail trains from Manchester up to Rochdale so I'd get the Metrolink tram

    Debated going to this, only an hour away from me but got someone's surprise birthday do at 7. The time frame is too tight and it would be typical I turn up late present in hand just as he's turning up for his surprise do
