Think the ideal route is Dover then Daggers in the final, knowing our luck we'll lose on pens to FGR in the final.

Do a grimsby, rest all the players next couple games, and let the fringe have an audition to make the play off squad

The difference is Grimsby were secure. They couldn't go second or third. We can't. I'd much rather finish second. Rest the players for the last game if we can. That's enough.

Was going to edit that as it made no sense, but as Hoots agreed it must have to him! Grimsby finished third. And were guaranteed that spot about 3 weeks out. We aren't secure in second by any means. Let's go into the playoffs with confidence and finish second.

We can win the play-offs but not with Hughes and Norwood who I'm afraid were appallingly bad today again.
Maynard wasnt much better but he has just come back from injury and did improve as the game went on.

Cole played well up front & scored another cracking goal but needs a strike partner who can score - Cook or Collins.

Jennings played well again, also scored another cracking goal. Wallace could play the holding midfield role with Souza wide midfield.

With those changes we can definitely win.

I am certain that every Rovers poster hopes for the same thing. But the record show that the play offs are such a lottery that they are unpredictable.In these circumstances it is no unreasonable that some fear the worst I remember the heart break of the loss to Notts County, Swindon and Hartlepool all games teams where there was reason to feel that we would be the stronger side
Ok some are more hopeful than others but it is no reason to feel superior to those that fear it is often not the best team that wins the play offs

I really don't think there is any beef with Cook. Simply put, as an attacking force the team has looked miles better as a unit over the last 4 games than at any point over the last 2 seasons in this league. Does it need to be any deeper than that? I am one of Cook's biggest fans and was from day one. I was also Norwood's loudest critics. I wouldn't change the forward line at this time though. Stockton is scoring goals and the movement of Jennings/Norwood plus the overlapping wing backs is what is creating the chances.

If we change tactics then things change. But as it stands I wouldn't.

You said the same over and over again on the other board about Stockton and just talk absolute bull about Norwood. Collins has scored one goal when we were already eight up and has hardly played at all for us!!

couldnt disagree more. Constantly offside or fouling, and failing to hold the ball up. And failed to score again when in good positions.

Because of our poor record against the top sides I can see why some people think we wont win the play offs. I don't see why some people think that Wallace is the answer. One of the main problems we've had this season was lack of pace in midfield Wallace wont solve that. When Harris got into the team we played a lot better because of his pace.

I agree about Harris but if Wallace were to be recalled I would put him instead of Hughes.

With regard to the ''poor record against the top sides[apart from Dover],I would say that the only game we deserved to lose was against Dagenham at home[I didn't see the Lincoln home game as I was on holiday]

Thing is teams like Dover, FGR and Daggers aren't used to playing with so much pressure on them. Come the playoffs, the pressure may just get to them. For us its another game were expected to win, so no real extra expectation on the players. But the players at Dover will now have this extra pressure on them to perform and I reckon we can do it against them, same as the final. In the league they just come and play with no pressure hence the sh*te record, but in the play offs its a different story.

I said after FGR Lincoln will drop points, don't think they will know as they are secure. Ultimately what has cost us this season is our inability to score goals against good sides. We don't take our chances, second half we created very little and for all the possession offered little danger. Harris' us a big miss no-one offers his effort from the rest of the midfield. I really like Hughes but he's ineffective in the 5 3 2. That system requires a midfield runner getting into the box to support your forwards who bar Norwood are pretty static. Think I would drop Hughes, move Norwood back to midfield as he is the only other who can match Harris for running and invite him to get forwards as much as possible. Maynard would have to sit deep and then bring either Mangan or Susa in up front to try and give an extra dimension. Without something different we won't progress past the semis. We have beaten no top sides bar Dover which has ultimately cost us the league, and nothing from that game would convince me other wise.

Dover/aldershot

If them, at Wembley, I can only see us a daggers having any form of decent following. We would take 20k, which would be more then the rest, and at least double FGR and Dover.

We really could be the 12th man!

Aldershot looked good yesterday with their very fast forwards, credit to our defence 2nd half we got the measure of them.
Dover - who look as if they will pip them to 5th spot - also looked good against us at PP - big, lean, quick players, and not the bunch of play-actors that we had here last season.

Dagenham - didnt see the game at PP but the TV game away, there was an outstanding performance by Mitch Duggan.

I do not think that any professional deserves a game.They have to earn that and Jennings,Meekki and Dawson do not merit selection before those currently playing.
As for negativity breeding negativity it is founded on the false assumption that those that see the play offs as a lottery lack passion at matches.Well I fall into the group that recognises that all too often the best side is not the one that comes out on top.But I will totally hope that we succeed and at games will be as positive as anyone..The whole branding of people as negative is just far too simplistic for attitudes to a club and its situation are multi layered

Good idea, particular against the Guiseley "bruisers" and the plastic Maidstone pitch.
Maybe Southport (home) play the regulars as it will be a "nothing" game, maybe even a mock penalty shoot out in front of the Kop and sheds. If there is a penalty shoot out in the SF's it will be at home.

What you say about the 532 is correct. (Are we really setting up like that by the way? I see it as more of a 3421). But I digress and I do disagree with your conclusions. Hughes is the one who holds the team together and keeps the ball moving, getting the wing backs involved. He is not the midfield runner and never has been but he is very effective in his role and it allowed Harris the freedom to attack the ball and make forward runs knowing he has protection behind. Wallace and Jenno could hold,they may offer a better range of passing, but can they hold the middle of the pitch as well? Similarly Maynard can make forward runs like Harris, but I seriously doubt his ability to get around the pitch in the same way.

Norwood in the centre of midfield? I can't see that at all. He's great at chasing down the ball but being disciplined in the heart of the pitch. I can't see it at all.

I also don't see this fascination some have with Sousa. He's tricky enough and has made contributions off the bench but I don't at the moment see a player that can come in and dominate in a full time role. Is he miles better than Mekki?

I think most managers know which team they would rather face in the play offs.. who thinks the best for rovers would be Dover in the semis and Daggers at wembley?.. Aldershot v dover this Monday. what would be worse for Rovers in the play offs, a bang in form Ricky Miller or the Aldershot Front line firing on all cylinders? was mightily impressed with the shots in the final third of the pitch yesterday. their movement and touches were very good and some of the little one-twos they played in and around the box left us completely flat-footed at times. we have kept Miller quiet in the 2 league games this season and he hasn't scored against us.

It was a simple question, why give the options if when you tick a box other than "final winners" it is seen as being negative. There are arguments for and against each of the options given I sincerely hope we are final winners but this is a forum and people bring there own view point based on their knowledge and experience. Eachof the teams vying for the finals are good teams based on their season performance.

If we had all of our players at the managers disposal I would have no doubt we would win, but our lack of midfield options is an issue it may get better over the next few weeks but I think we will struggle if our only midfield options are Hughes, Maynard and Wallace. That's not being negative it is my opinion based on watching 30+ games this season.

Would it be worth experimenting with vaughan in CM alongside Hughes? Might seem a daft idea but he's very much the same player as harris - chases all game, decent ball on him and knows how to defend, got a wicked strike in him too? Does seem to have a lot of energy which is clearly lacking in Wallace and Maynard.

In reality it's only comparable to last season as we've only spent two seasons in this marvellous league. It almost does a disservice to some of our great teams of the past who may have had less wins and fewer points. The National League; "You can't polish a turd but you can sprinkle glitter on it".

Yes, but remember our budget and players directly reflect the league we're in. It's not like we still have a league 1 side playing in this league. So the points total IS an achievement.

We're down here because of what happened in the past. It's the deck of cards we've been handed.

Being directly comparable to part-time teams doesn't sit well with me and never will. It is far from a level playing field. It's also the deck of cards, as the dealer, we shuffled ourselves. Of course the points total, by it's nature, is an achievement; certainly not the biggest or proudest moment in the club's history as I feel the sales pitch is trying to lead me to believe. As an off the cuff and ill-thought out comparison, it's like we've come runners-up in the employee of the year for Netto after recently losing our well-respected position at Waitrose.

Would have meant us being crowned Champions on Monday sad ain't it.

Just shows how costly those Lincoln games turned out to be.

I remember the lincoln away game, we had harris on the wing with mangan up top. Looking back, Micky probably didnt know his best 11 by then hence we lost. Reckon if we played that game 2 weeks ago theres no way we would have lost. The home game we had FOUR centre mids playing!! No wonder they won and we didnt score. If we won 1 and drew one we'd be 5 ahead of them right now, which essentially cost us the title. Thank f*ck we now have a grip on the best formation/players which eradicates some of the results against the teams around us.

My big concern is that our record on penalties means all a team has to do is grind out a draw in the final. If it then goes to a shoot out we're stuffed.
