If he is going to insist on putting Taylor in CM why not play Brophy at LB instead of attempting to shoehorn Iandolo.

Yes, or I actually think Brophy would do alright in front of Taylor, on the left hand side of the 3. Hes got some defensive instincts, which Taylor needs in front of him, and can also get down the wing - something which the likes of Goddard are obviously not capable of.

I don't envy Power's position on this call.

I know I'm stating the obvious, but its a tale of two halves. Mathematically we are very close to a shot of promotion. Just need to win a few at home and after Notts County we are into an "easier" run (in theory).

But a collapse in away form could see us enter a Regageddon scenario of looking over our shoulder. I think with such a big gap we will be fine though.

As somebody said, the season is on a knife edge.

One thing that worries me is that Power said in an interview:

other than sounding like we aren't making changes (well he would regardless wouldn't he). Does "all in" mean this season is shit or bust? Is this our one  'big budget'  season.

Notts County is tough but if we lose to them and fail to beat Barnet and that should be it. Whether it will be, however...

Think it through. Gates are sliding anyway due to the total lack of entertainment and losing at home. Its the home gates that generate our revenue. We have no players to sell. Vigs stock has fallen considerably from last season. Carry on as we are and gates will slip to 3.5k season ticket holders, away gate plus a few. Budgets will reduce and you get into an existence cycle unless you chuck money at it, which we haven't got or you strike lucky with a manager capable of putting a team together cheaply - John Coleman / Keith Hill but not Flitcroft.
If we don't make it this season then we're in for a long hard slog. Last time we got out of it because Lowndes Lambert sponsored the Town, threw a little bit of money at it but demanded a name as manager and got Macari. Can't see any knights in shining armour out there while Power remains.
Unfortunately, I think we're left with Power going, which I can't see happening. Shit is the new normal.

FWIW, I heard that Vigs, Iandolo, Goddard and, surprisingly, Woolery will be available for loan or sale in January.

Some of these are the better bunch. It's the experience lot that have been a let down.

Surely BS on Woolery, unless he's got someone big time lined up.
