Cup Game v Luton

Recommended Posts

Scandalous that we are having to play this with so many players unavailable. What the hell are they doing having an international break anyway. Ridiculous that in the middle of a pandemic we are sending players all over the world.

Thoughts ?

Yes it is completely stupid, but we could have played the game on a different date if we’d wanted to.  Preston are playing Mansfield this weekend due to PNE potential call-ups.  We chose not to do that for some reason.

Whilst over the years i have taken an interest in all cup competitions there can only be one on field objective this season and that is trying to get promotion. We are not going to win this cup, there are no crowds and virtually no prize money unless you get to the latter stages so, get the fixture out of the way with what we have, give the youngsters a go, Luton may not want the fixture that much themselves either. If we get through this round fine if not i will not lose any sleep this season

This game is looking like a farce as we obviously cannot be taking it seriously. Have we even got a goalkeeper for it ?

Mansfield didn’t want to rearrange the fixture but say that they were threatened with expulsion from the competition and/or fines if they didn’t rearrange. Although the EFL has denied this.

Barden will probably be in goal - there are no U19 international fixtures it seems.

I know we chose not to but internationals should not be going ahead. Not yet. 

I don't think International fixtures will have any impact on the spread of Covid. Players are tested regularly and will barely meet anyone from outside of their own camps. I would agree if hundreds of thousands of fans were travelling around, but that isn't the case.

Barden or Jon McCracken will be available to play against Luton.

It is strange and a shame to clearly not take the cup seriously, however as expressed by other posters before, league is priority this year!

Why is McGovern bothering to go with Northern Ireland? He won’t get a game there but could get a game here. You’d think, given that he rarely plays for anyone, he’d fancy a run out!

Skipp might be in the England U21 team and Buendia serves the 2nd of his 3 game ban against Luton. Cantwell and Godfrey might be available as well, unsure if they will continue in U21 team.

What about Martin, Plancheta and Sinani? I assume they are called up too?

Placheta and Sinani have been called up. Martin will be around.

OK, we could still probably put out a decent enough starting 11.

Presumably because it would have interfered with our pre season schedule.

Could be a great game to watch this one with our ressies, youth and a few new ones involved. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if we won the tie.

I don't blame the club for having it go ahead. We have a large squad and would have used a second team anyway in the main.

To be fair it's looking like we will still have a big squad by the time that game comes around and we will be able to give some competitive minutes to fringe players. Not all bad.

Hanley’s not been called up and expected to be fit I believe so I would guess he’ll play as will need game time.

We should still be able to put out a team good enough to get through, although GK worries me. I know nothing about either option, does anyone else?
