    LEE TOMLIN

    Why didn't he feature yesterday?

    Re: LEE TOMLIN

    Because Damour showed why he deserved his shot. I think he will start on Tuesday but I like Damour a lot and he deserves to keep his spot in the team.

    Agree. Players that finished strongly against Burton and played well yesterday deserve to keep their place. Tomlin will get his chance and then he needs to take it. Competition for places will keep us moving forward.

    I think it's because this season we have a proper squad, rather than just a team.

    Agreed.

    Re: LEE TOMLIN

    Fair comments, it's just that as our most expensive signing I thought he could have been found a start in the line up.

    Re: LEE TOMLIN

    Two league games, two different formations and personal - 6 points with no goals conceded. Tomlin may feature against Sheffield United based on Warnock's approach to the game but hard to argue that anything should have been changed about yesterday's starting side.

    When he's playing well enough he will play himself in to the team.

    Re: LEE TOMLIN

    I may be wrong, but the way I read it, we went with a more defensive midfield.
    Against weaker opposition I see Tomlin playing just behind Ken in a 4-4-1-1 type formation.

    That's the way I see it.
    To have options is such a welcome commodity. Nice to know that our top signing "can't get in the side"

    Well, if that was a more defensive performance can't wait to see us remove the shackles.

    Know where you're coming from...
    That's how good a performance Ken put in.

    We have so many options now it is looking good

    That would be harsh after yesterday.

    I'd certainly stick with the same team for Tuesday.

    Yes. Totally different players.

    Yes it would, but it's a long season and different opposition might need different tactics.

    Looks like we may set up a bit more difficult to beat away from home with a more attacking approach at home

    Yeah, isn't it great to have options? It seems a long time since the team didn't effectively pick itself

    And isn't it nice to have good competion from the bench , it keeps the chosen eleven hungry

    Let's hope he wasn't left out for fitness or disciplinary reasons. He's had his off field issues at other clubs.

    He played 97 minutes against Pompey, maybe a bit tired?

    I suspect that he was left out because on current form he is not amongst the first choice eleven. Hopefully he will also kick on and make himself undroppable.

    Possible fitness issue then?

    ^^ This. Great to see competition for places. I think we will see some changing startings regardless of previous results The fact he has quality to come on and change things when needed is good. To be 3-0 up against promotion favourites without using top two summer signings (in monetary terms) says a lot about the strength of the squad. In NW we trust. Onwards and upwards.

    I'm sure I heard somewhere that Warnock said he was "Blowing from both ends" on Tuesday. Whether it was a fitness issue is hard to tell, how hard did he work against Pompey?

    I thought that he put in a good shift in fairness, in attack and he also did a lot of closing down & chasing back

    Tomlin was behind the other players in terms of match fitness but it could well have been a tactical decision.
