Ye, I saw it like the rest of you...we put a lot of work in, especially in the first half and perhaps the result was a tad harsh but the reality is they were missing for fun at first. Of the reserves that played I wouldn't be worried to see Brooks, Eastwood and Baldock in the first team.

 On Ched, he missed a lot of pre season so is well behind the rest but CW has to keep giving him game time ( from the bench ) and reserve games to get his match fitness and conditioning up.

 I really hope CW gets a couple of pace players in we are woefully slow and perhaps the 3-5-2 isn't working as well, time will tell on that but i've always liked 4-4-2.

 I'm at the game on Saturday and if we get a draw i'll be happy, I spoke to a Derby fan today and he says that they're already being written off but I see them as one of the top six sides in this division.

 So what team would you play on Saturday?

I'd replace Sharp with Deane but otherwise that's not a bad side  :ok:

Looking at the striking options, with Clarke suspended, and the question of whether you go with Brooks or Duffy, I would like to see Brooks AND Duffy playing behind Sharp, still keeping the back 3, still with fullbacks getting forward, and with Fleck and Coutts central.

Tyler Smith got 2 more for the U-23 last night v Cardiff. Maybe he's worth a punt?

Maybe a bit early for him, but I would give him some exposure to the first team squad.

That one started yesterday on the back of an unofficial Spurs Twitter account. Not sure if it's true or not but he's a big unit.  He's either the next Ledley King or the next Nyron Nosworthy depending on which Spurs fan you listen to.

Personally I think this is more smoke and mirrors with Lenihan still being the main target!

I would be quite happy with Carter Vickers although the Spurs fans don't rate him very much. It seems he is brilliant in reserve games but when playing 1st team in front of a crowd he turns into  a bit of a bomb scare!

See the usuals in The Bath tomorrow.....about 12.20 for me. That southern poofta can't make it again!!
