FFS, all roads leading to Gwion and LDSL playing wing-back again.

Obviously the Peterborough Telegraph people read this message board.
“We’ve missed Gwion,” Posh boss Grant McCann said. “He gives us that something a bit different. He carries the ball well at good pace so he’s been a hard man to replace.

“Marcus will also resume training tomorrow. He’s been playing with a slight problem in the last few games so the rest will have done him so good. Hopefully all the lads will feel refreshed as we have a tough run of games coming up.”

Marcus was sitting in the Family Stand against the Cobblers. Topcat spoke to him and he confirmed that he was sitting things out as he was injured. I hope that he is not brought back too soon for his sake and the team.

Good to have Marcus and Gwion back. Along with Grant and Taylor they make us tick. Wing backs look nailed on and a win will paper over the cracks of a system that for us is flawed. But what would I know.... May knock a few more 000's off Leo's sales value in the process. I wonder if persevering with wing backs us more a ploy to keep Captain Calamity in the side rather than Leo?

For certain players...It appears to be harder to get out of the side, than it is to get in it.

LDSL is one that has to be accommodated somewhere...and there's been talk on social media that he should be tried in the number 10 role for this game.

Well....he's been played in every other position so we may as well give him a go there.

Play four at the back and both LDSL and Calamity Jack are benched.

Play three at the back and both start.

Such a no-brainer.

Which also means we lose Hughes and Shepperd. Surely playing a team who couldn't win a game of tiddlywinks we need to be as offensive as possible

They don't let that many in...only 16 in 12 which is 1 less than us.

They don't score though....only 6 in 12.

If we go 3-5-2 this could turn out to be a pretty dour affair with one goal settling it...or even 0-0

Surely he'll go 4-4-2...try and control the midfield like Pompey did on Sunday...

Won't he?

Gillingham parted company with Peter Taylor this morning.

New manager syndrome coming up then....

New manager syndrome remains a myth.

Could put Mourinho in charge of Gillingham and they'd still have the weakest squad.

There will be no excuses against this mob.

Maybe when we get a new manager?

Afraid I have a bad feeling about this game again.

If he plays three at the back...crowd under 5,000, Family Stand start moaning at LDSL, Gills come to defend, keep it to 0-0 at half-time, atmosphere goes flat, etc etc.
