interesting to see what happens tonight if we take two squads of 18 players as we'll have to fill the benches with quite a few nippers!
Can see a repeat of rolling subsgate tonight

I'm not sure the club has recovered from the humiliation of last time that happened.
Before I got tickets for Burton I asked the ticket office if they had any inkling about which game the first team squad would be at, they said they were under the impression the squad would be split between both games.
5 a sides it is then.

Safe to say Rodriquez will be playing centre forward tonight! Although will also be interesting to see if Pulis selects in one of the games what he believes to be his strongest first 11.
Which match will Pulis be at?

It seems to be the in thing at the moment to play two games on the same night and split the squad, I think we are doing it three times over the next week or so. Ive got no issue with the dual games but don't really understand the secrecy, why not just name a squad (however depleted it may be) for each game and then people will make up their minds which one, if any, they want to go to.
Or is that too simple for them ?

I guess that is the question I really should have asked.
Taking into account our small squad I'm fully expecting us to be calling up 15 and 16 year olds for tonight and Saturdays games.

I'm off to Slough and expecting to see Shan and Big Dave lead out the under 16's!  Big Grin
To be fair you can split the squad in to 2 teams if you use 2-3 kids per side.

Foster

Nyom
Dawson
Evans
Melbourne

Leko
Harper
Yacob
Rodriguez

Roberts
Rondon

Myhill

Wilson
O'Shea
Hegazy
Brunt

Phillips
Livermore
Field
McClean

Chadli

Robson-Kanu

I'd imagine the team at Burton will be slightly stronger but you can get a decent spread across 2 teams. Apparently Morrison isn't playing in either game, someone asked him on Instagram which game he was playing in and he said he wasn't involved, so it does make the midfield option a little sparce.
That isn't including McManaman either who may well get a game too. The benches will then be other kids like Campbell, Donnellan, Howkins, McCourt and a few others, probably 5 subs for each team.
