The worrying aspect is the injuries and those we have specifically picked up.  I happened to think that young Knoyle played very well on Saturday, so that will be a loss. 

Taylor, on the other side, whilst always a threat on set pieces and delivery into the box, looked like he is struggling for pace and may be vulnerable (I thought the same about Greer when he moved on to Brighton, mind)

1,500+ seems like a good gate to me compared with last year.   Won't be long before we start being told what a success the competition is.
Still won't entice me whilst the format stays the same.  Useless,  Pointless competition.

So if the format changed back you’d go? If so then it isn’t a Useless, Pointless competition, is it!? Just a format issue?

So while I try and understand your dogma, intransigence and hankering for not changing anything let me counter you with this. As it stands, I went with my lad and put £14 in the till including the pimped up fixture wall chart programme contained within to a game the club has to play and pay for. Secondly, it was a chance for all who did go to to a) see some fucking excellent football played by b) players who should be making a name for themselves at the highest level in the future. C) encouraged my DNA to want to go to a league match ASAP, thus putting more money into the club and d) getting a younger member of the community to continue at some level to support the club. INMH not a complete waste of time.

Looks like Knoyle will be out for a bit with a hamstring problem.

We have needed, and still do need, a proper back-up full-back on either side, especially the right, don't want Dunne anywhere near right-back. Hopefully this forces Phil Brown's hand.


That's a big shame.  We really do need proper fullback cover.

Oh FFS, Knoyle and Adebeyo were my two stand outs from Saturday. Injured for fuck all. Brilliant.

They already have. Some dribbling jizz-baton from the FA/FL last season told us that it was a success because attendance were up. They were, but what he somehow conveniently failed to mention was that the new format now means more games are being played, hence the 'higher' number of people attending. In reality, attendances at individual games were significantly lower than before.

And no doubt many people were just lapping the bullshit up.

It seems Knoyle might be available for Saturday and there are no other injury concerns. Even if Knoyle doesn't make it Saturday, it certainly seems as though it is not a long-term injury.

Still a fucking stupid competition, though.

Yes, In the format it is, I stand by  my comments,  it is a useless, pointless competition.
 You chose to go, thats up to you, you have a choice and so do I, I will not help finance a competition that was designed to allow a lower league club the opportunity of the chance to play at Wembley, it has been invaded by premier league clubs encouraged to use the competition as a youth training exercise (ie U21/U23 teams), and before you say it, it does not IMO, bring through future England players, and does not do what it was originally intended to do, give lower league clubs a chance to get to Wembley.
So if you choose to support this tinpot cup then feel free to do so, I and several thousand others will not.

I went to see if my lad was ready for the proper football.

He isn't. And I won't be going to any more games in this competition.
