    The Bench

    I know things are easily said when we lose but Iím just wondering why do we have Yates on the bench?

    We normally have 2 strikers on pitch and 2 on bench, Ball, Smith,Lavery and Yates

    It seems to me that Yates is last in line so why not leave him out and get maybe another defender on bench.

    A waste if you ask me and it doesnít help when we need to make changes

    He played last night which must mean that he's doing something right in training. To be honest I didn't think that we'd see him play any part again this.

    Good on him really because he must have known he was less likely to play when with the signing of Lavery and Smith.

    Itís obvious that warne likes Yates but he will come unstuck if heís not careful with him.

    Didnít do too much wrong last night, seem to remember two decent shots on target and unlike most of the others didnít badly miscontrol the ball several times. Take the point though that as yet Iíve not seen anything earth shattering from him.

    I agree Yates is not pulling up any trees and he would prob struggle with a few weeds though lavery a championship quality players has not looked any better..
    Personally if were chasing the game, instead of switching ball/Smith for lavery or Yates I would take off one of the back 4 and stick Taylor along side ball and push Smith infront

    He pushed Smith wide right and Taylor down the middle towards the end of the game, much too late in my opinion.

    Yates is non league standard and it must only have been bonus payments that Warne put him on last night. Problem is we don't have a decent striker on the books -Lavery is poor, Smith is a lump (12 clubs?) and Ball is skilful but slow. I think the answer is to play Williams and Taylor up front. Unorthodox but it might just work in this league.

    He must be great at running past cones, but to be honest I canít see what he brings to the team, other than perhaps effort.

    Williams and Taylor up front. Hilarious.

    The dictionary definition of unorthodox is "contrary to what is usual, traditional or accepted". In this case I would define it as "mental".

    Taylor could possibly play there ... I don't think Williams would fit that role very well though

    Didn't Warne come unstuck Tuesday night, by fetching Yates on, instead of Ball.
