Well, yesterday certainly put a cat amongst the pigeons!

I feel it would be harsh to change yesterdayís XI v Rochdale. Surely, the players should be certain that individual performances like that deserve at least another chance.

Itís also getting harder to see just how Grant gets back in as a regular starter - should always be in the matchday squad imo.

Is Jonny Williams a bit of an extravagance?

An abundance of riches!

KKH comes in for me instantly, I donít think heís been as good in recent weeks but he is still head and shoulders above our other full backs. Rob Hunt hasnít been close to his first seasons form and Iandolo just isnít a full back.

The keeper thing is a tough one, Wollocott hasnít put a foot wrong this season, and because of that has been called up to international duty, as good as Ward was yesterday, Wollocott has to come back in.

Thought Rob Hunt was superb yesterday - also Iandolo. If KKH can play LWB put him in and leave Hunt on the right. Tough on Iandolo, though.

Iíd be mightily pissed off if I was Ward and got dropped. Maybe heíll get the nod Saturday with Garner using the tiring trip excuse for leaving out Wollacott.

No way McKirdy can be left out.

Same XI for me without a doubt

Harsh on JoJo admittedly.
Grant, Williams werenít starting anyway. Gilbert started a couple but would have lost his place to McKirdy yesterday even if heíd been available.
KKH hasnít been particularly great the last few games (not bad tbf) but certainly not good enough to be a certain starter.

I think Ward will play on Tuesday - If he plays well, then he stays in for Saturday. If not, then Wollacott comes back in.

Hunt keeps his place for Saturday after this week's performance. As stated above, his performance vs FGR was his best of the season and on par with when he was on top form. He is a RB who can fill in at LB if necessary.

McKirdy keeps his place on Saturday at the expense of Gilbert. Again, if Gilbert can play on Tuesday then he should (to keep McKirdy fresh). I might even give Simpson the night off and give Parsons a run out.

Reed and Payne I might rest for East and Lyden on Tuesday too.

Bottom line is an unchanged team for Saturday, with other fringe and returners getting a run out on Tuesday.

There may be selection at stake for Rochdale in the Pizza-Pot at Plymouth.  Ward has to start on Saturday unless he has a stinker at Plymouth.  Gilbert will be benched for McKirdy, who will increase the attendance.

Good point about Williams, you can't break up Reed, Payne and Gladwin, he's on the bench for sure.  Regarding wing backs, KKH may have to win his place back in the days ahead.  Garner may not be for having to win the shirt back, with KKH obviously offering more going forward, especially if Rochdale are expected to park the bus.  Tough on Rob Hunt, but that's just the way it is. So only one change for Saturday, KKH in for Rob Hunt.  That decision is probably going to be mainly tactical.

Expect Lawson and Dabre to feature at Argyle.

Would seem an abundance of riches, until we get some injuries and suspensions on a very small squad. That said, at the moment we do seem to be relatively injury free, suspensions not a worrying issue on the horizon, though as we have all seen over the years that can change very quickly.

The pizza cup is a potential money maker in the later stages and can be used instead of or alongside Ďdevelopment gamesí to keep fringe players fresh, match fit and injured players up to speed. As loathed as the pizza cup is, like yesterdayís £10k money in the till is very important, especially this year.

Wollacott comes straight back in, heís probably player of the season thus far and hasnít put a foot wrong over a sustained period of time including international duty for a pretty decent National team. His stock is rising so need to keep him developing as heís only gonna get better.
Iíd keep Hunt at RWB and see if KHH can play on the left hand side as thatís our obvious weak side. Other than that it would be as is.

Unchanged for me. We just won 2-0 at the league leaders and they hadn't conceded in 4 or 5 games

Wollacott back in and KKH for Hunt to give us more attacking threat at home are the only two changes Iím expecting to see next Sat. I hope Lyden gets a decent run out on Tuesday night.

It was a dusty old night and I'm the first to admit it
I've surely upset someone, but my memory has chosen to omit it
A tiny voice telling me I really should cool it
Chewing my face off, talking absolute rubbish
The first line hit me like a kick in the face
I thought, "I'd better have another one, just in case"
Next thing I knew, my heart was under attack

100% JoJo should come back in on Saturday, he is class keeper at this level and Ward is a journeyman (not a dig) who had a superb game

Play the best keeper, simple

Journeyman? Really? Ward is 24.  Spent his career on loan at various clubs from Reading until he joined Exeter in 2019. For comparison, Jojo is 25 and spent his career on loan at various clubs from Bristol City until he joined Swindon in 2021. I would say their careers have been similar until now.

Well if youíre 12 then @ 24 it would seem a lifetime away and therefore a journeyman (not a dig) of a player, with only shock horror another 10 years left in his career 🤣🤣🤣
