I can see NC putting his strongest team out with it being the last pre season friendly and could give an indication of the starting line up at Brizzle, the team will possibly be wearing the new away kit too.

2 nil win for us UTMP👍

With it, I hope. ;)

Do you think we will fanny about in defence?

I rm think we will be pretty focused tomorrow and should win. Jerry needs a goal. Maybe try Connolly with Husband at the back. I hope Dougall plays.
I hope so too but you know that sometimes it can be like - to you Claud - in our defence.

Scrafton thinks Ekpiteta and Keshi are likely to be involved today, cos Critch has said they almost made Tuesday night, but doesn't know about Dougall, Stewart or Thorniley. This massive bunch of missing players really boils down to those three, and Gretarsson and Madine. The rest are flotsam and jetsam, and Lubala and Nuttall. And Virtue.

No mention of Josh Bowler. Wonder if he'll be around this afternoon? Will Tyreece get a run out?

Just those three plus the other seven then? 🤣

No. Three key absences. Two even.

Maybe one. Dougall. Him and Ward works well.
I was only making light patter.

I think Grets is a miss too, not Dougall level but he's in my best 11. Stewart is missed more sans Kenneth than he would be if the great man we're fit and I think Gaz Maz (if fit) will have more of an impact than people think he's going to. I also think, in the absence of Grets, Thorniley gets in my side if we're playing a 3 centre half line up, though wor Jimmy has looked good there.

Stuck in hospital. Missus has just given birth. Can we get a steam anywhere? Our little tanger wants to watch her first game!
Soz, it's not streamed. Is a replay later I think. Congratulations. My first game with the boy was a dodgy stream of the 5-3 Everton away game. That's weirdly one of my best Pool memories even though I wasn't there and we lost!

Yeah Gretarsson for sure but we've lived without him for ages, and Husband has become great.

Stewart back today apparently. And Bowler!

Looks like no Dougall or Stewart again. I think we are most likely to start the season pretty undercooked.

PS just seen the earlier post about Stewart. Maybe he will come on off the bench 🤞.

Got a free bet on Goodwood Festival, sat in a pub in Morecambe so stuck it on the first Orange-ish jacket I saw.

Dora Penny comes in at 6/1. Good omen for today!

21 players today including 3 keepers and Cameron Antwi. No other young players. And there's no Dougall, Gretarsson, Thorniley, Madine. Which takes us to 25. Full squad?

More signings? How? Antwi may miss out but who else?
