Rochdale Away : Wed Jan 31, 2024 11:44 am  
In anticipation of Wakey putting 40 on York...i'm going for 72-0 to keep the season alive..
The appointment of timekeeper N.Hope is probably a better indication of what lies ahead.. :(

Lol! We got £3 return tickets to Manchester (via Rochdale) on't train a few weeks back for this weekend. With it now being another friendly to add on to all the league games i think a wander around Manchester's hostelries sounds a better bet tbh.

Seen has we are pretty much out seems pointless attending.

I would drop keyes for this and play widdop

Also if salty is fit drop Crooks and play salty after last weeks effort.

For me Tibbs looked good last week and is worthy of a place

I personally thought Crooks was playing well until the dropped pass. It wasn't dropping it, was a poor pass, but to just stand there and let the Oldham player pick up and score was nowt short of disgraceful. That cost us the game in't end up.

Cost him a move to Castleford too... :lol: :lol:

Scrape a win here with a few ups and downs . Tibbs in for me always manages to score if there is half a chance .
Re: Rochdale Away : Wed Jan 31, 2024 2:27 pm  
Seeing it in real time and then watching the replay, Crooks does not just let the Oldham player pick up the ball, yeah maybe the Oldham player reacts faster but Crooks simply can't turn around in time to recover. Anyhow he would not be the centre that I would be leaving out, I simply don't think you can afford to carry a defensive liability out in the centre and Oldham exploited that on a few occasions. As for the Rochdale game I will be waiting till its on YT to watch it, I don't tend to attend friendlies and this is just a glorified one now and because of that I think Finn will be carful with team selection. Playing Widdop in this sort of game against a League 1 team would be madness if we think about it as would playing anyone carrying knocks.

He ran a great line for his try but his defense lets him down time and time again. If he can improve that aspect of his game he could be a really good centre at this level, its just not happening up until now and Im sure he will be really disappointed with his tackle attempt on Turner for one of those tries along with a few other misses.

Tibbs' defence is awful. He costs us as many as he scores.

And that is the problem we have at centre summed up by the comments already. We do not have many options Tibbs is better in attack but poor in defense, Mccomb is good at carrying the ball away from your own end but is also worrying in d. Crooks always seems to beat the first man but hasnt got the pace of Tibbs to really punish the opposition and can also get caught in d. All in all i think we need a new centre. As for the game as already been said do not risk anyone carry knocks but at the same we need some confidence going forward so pick the strongest side possible and hopefully we can get a big win.
