Poshies v Southend

Postby Chompy » 19 Feb 2017, 01:52

13-10 Poshies, 11-5 Southend, 5-2 Draw.

Brown Phil and his boys are the latest to try and eke something out from an away day at Fortress ABAX. They must be terrified.

Let's be honest, we're probably not winning this one and we're probably not beating Rochdale next weekend.

We're reliant on PoshDrummerAdam for atmosphere and the central defenders for goals. Coz sure as eggs is eggs our lolstrikers will again be as much use as a chocolate fireguard.

No Gwion, no Grant, no Forrester.

Southend-Southend, HT-FT @ 9-2 for me, plus Southend outright at 11-5. Money's money, so might as well make a few quid while I'm watching the season fizzle out.

this should be a laugh if nothing else....and a great chance for southend to enhance their play off claims.

no doubt we'll get the usual from the gaffer...."15 cup finals, this season won't fizzle out under my watch" blah blah.

with our first choice midfield wiped out and our impotent strikers continue to fire blanks...multiple changes are required.

lets go...mcgee..smith. ball. tafazoli. hughes...gooding. halsall. gynn. quow...waddle. hankin.

No Tony Shields? A shocking omission.

Don't forget the 'great bunch of lads' line SP.

They show it by fighting with each other, getting sent off and generally underperforming.

At a time where you need an old head....We have a rookie manager and his bunch of (mainly) novice footballers heading into no man's land...ie mid table.

When McCann looks back at this season...He should watch back all his post match interviews. Praising his team one week, slaughtering them the next. They sum up the whole win lose win lose season...How the hell we are 9th remains a mystery and sums up the standard of this dour league.

Onwards...and sideways and backwards probably.

Although it is a tactic favoured by his boss.... at some point he'll need to take responsibility as the boss... but then he may be more like fergie than he'd like to believe

"the standard of this dour league." Therein lies the possibility of Posh making the playoffs.
"more like fergie than he'd like to believe" Fergie got us out of this league twice.

Mcgee
Smith - Taffazoli -Hughes
Inmann - Lopes - Ball - Chettle - Binnom
Maddison - CMS


I think we'll do well to find a team that won't lose at home to Southend,

Samuelsen should...and surely will play.

Nichols won't start coz of the LR booboys. CMS prob won't start coz of the Sat-Tue thing.

So guess it'll be Junior and Gutless Lee. Junior has gone from St Albans roffler to our first choice striker in a few months. Shows where a good attitude can get you.

McGee; Smith Ball Taff Hughes; Samuelsen Inman Taylor Maddison; Angol Morias.

Don't like that line up at all but options are rather limited. Quite like Jimbo's idea of Ball in front of the back four though. Hughes at CB if Baldwin not ready to start?

Hughes played CB for Newport...but for whatever reason McCann has been reluctant to play him there.

I worry about our midfield without Grant and Bostwick....Lots of pretty footballers but no steel whatsoever and that's where the game will probably be won or lost.

Will he stick with those bezzies from Borehamwood up front...Who McCann appears to think can repeat those halcyon days about 8 levels higher?

Personally I'd go Nichols and Taylor if only because they're the most successful of the 11 different strike pairings this season.

Nichols has taken a lot of stick at London Road this season...Much of it unfairly imo...but he's got to man up and rise above it if he's going to have a successful career.

3-5-2 would make sense given personnel, but can't do a diamond in that case, so forget it.

Swap Maddison and Lopez with Maddison playing behind the front two , Samuelson on the left and CMS up front with Morias. Agree apart from that .
