Macclesfield T v Barrow afc

Post by spirit of 1990 »

Without knowing the line-up yet and with Pilks out, it'd be good to see E. Newby getting some sort of game time tonight and not just a ten minute appearance at the end of the game. Probably a bit too much for him to start so out of what's left I'd go for BvdB over Symington.

If Williams is available he too must be pushing for a recall.

With a bit of luck Wilson will get a decent run-out as well, although I can't see Edmo risking giving him much more than twenty minutes or so.

Possibilities for some players to stake a claim for a game on Saturday including Mellor, Grimes & Fofana.

We didn't underestimate them, we just didn't think they were that good.

I can't get my head around people saying Newby is too young. He'll be 20 in a couple of months. There's players playing in the Premiership/Football League who are 16/17. If you are good enough, you are old enough. He'll do a better job than both van den Broek and Symington in my opinion. Get him in there.
He who pays the piper calls the tune.

Not saying he isn't good enough, but it'd be a shame to throw him in when perhaps he might be one of those players who would benefit from being built up to a full start over a period of time - that also happens in the Prem/football league.

I would like to see Williams start, however, he's still struggling with a groin injury. Worries me because it sounds as if, from my reliable sources, we have a Ledley King-esque player on our hands. Plays one game, out for the next.

Whats wrong with Williams & Mellor ?

How Newby cant get in ahead of Symington and Van Den Broek is beyond me.
