Hibbo has looked shaky on return the past few years but at his best agree he should replace Nev. Offers more on attack.

Question - how do we use Tmac when Brown/Weidmann are available? He is crap. Could be a damaging swingman from defence I guess but don't rate him atm

I think TMac, Fritsch, Weed and Brown all battle for 2 spots. Can't have more than 2 in there.

This will be fascinating.

Cats have no match-up for Max Gawn. But I reckon the Cats' defence could make it hard for you guys to score.

Do you guys reckon you're in better shape than in 2018? On paper I think so. Petracca's improvement is massive. Pickett is a great addition. And the combination of May and Lever makes a big difference.

Still big 2018 vibes until we beat a top side at the G I think

Yeah agree Hibberd for Nev, Melk for Sparrow. Sparrow has been ok this year but didn't do much at all last night. Not a natural HFF like Melksham is.

Really? Fritsch is a classic third forward. Especially with Jackson rarely playing down there.
Yeah I have thought that before and Fritsch has shown some ground ball nous, but I just think forward pressure wise we can only afford to have 2 medium/ talls flying for marks. Especially when Jackson/ Gawn occasionally float in.

If they bring in another tall forward Fritschs role will change, but if Melk also makes his way in our forward pressure will be seriously bad.
