Pretty poor or just not quite as good as his early games?

O’Dowda was in the 18 Saturday…..still wondering what Nige meant last week when he said “some perceive him to be a first teamer” (words to that effect, but definitely used the word perceive).  Does that mean he doesn’t have the same view.  I’d be surprised bearing in mind he started this season, but thought it was an interesting use of words.  Of course he might have picked up a niggle in training, and nothing more than that.

Me too, but Nige is good at surprising me….could be another 442, just to keep us on our toes!

Maybe I could describe him as below average. I think his levels have dropped a lot in recent games but thought he was quality in games before that. He also doesn't seem as naturally fit as some others and might struggle to play 3 games in a week.

To be fair to him   in the QPR game at left wing back he was not helped by Baker not really offering what Kalas offered Tanner going forward on the other side.

Pearson did say O'Dowda is a key player for us. I think what he meant by what you say is that he has to prove himself to get into this side.

I'd not have him in once back fit if Pring is raises his levels again consistently. I also think Semenyo should really be pushing for a start.

When we add in Massengo and Scott who have both shown they can be decent in wide areas, it is a good problem to have with so many options.

If it is a type of 352 tonight then it's Dasilva who has won a place in the side over Pring, and I agree with that as Dasilva is in decent form.

I thought Bakinson might be dropped but with Williams and James in it could really help Bakinson to do what he's good at, rather than playing in a 2 in a compact 442 where he has so much to do off the ball, especially with our low possession.

Takes me back to my days working at Lloyds and trips to London to see IT colleagues.

Sampson House?

Company I worked for, made redundant, went back contracting as they had no one to do my job,  supplied a   managed voice Comms service and I spent most of my time between London, Brum, Edinburgh and of course Bristol. 

Thankfully retired about 14 years ago.

Selection a tad harsh on Wells, maybe? Thought he had a decent game v Fulham and looked ready for a start tonight.

Also share Dave's slight confusion re COD, among other things. Did NP not refer to him back in the summer as a very important player for us in the coming season?

And as for Semenyo, who knows?

Not that I'm unhappy with the line-up. Just curious, really, as to the underlying thinking.

I think so too, just surprised he isn't retained in the 18...maybe two LB/LWBs negates the need?

yep, strong if not quite natural

yep, big opportunity for "T".
