    Many have moaned about the multitude of changes yesterday.
    Dicko and Golbourne are having to be treated with kid gloves.Dicko still has problems with his back and hamstring and Golbourne with his foot.Both were benched and not just left out because we have very few options.Iorfa was not dropped either .He had a tightness in his groin.
    I just wish we would get a degree of honesty to prevent finger pointing from the fans.

    True Jonzy but wild speculation and assumptions suit some people's agendas better.

    With respect mate, they shouldn't be on the bench then in that case.

    Few options -why not use transfer window then. Doubt we will use the loan window until the 93 day rule allows to do so until end of May.

    Spot on, or does that highlight our lack of strength in depth

    Just shows the comments about having a good enough squad are what most of us thought. A load of $$$$$$$$!

    Absolutely. The issues of working with such a small squad! Kenny's wish?

    So how many would you have them sign Bumbamuffin? How many 1st team players do you want at the club? What if all players are fully fit, you continue to ave a substantial wage packet to pay. We are after witnessing the farce of the bomb squad, should we re-establish that renowned facet of our club once again.

    Our current options on the bench sum up how lacking this squad is in any depth, apart from the defence.

    Yeah,because signing another player or 2 would ruin the dynamics of the squad.

    A couple more would have made a big difference. Edwards has no replacement, central midfield is weak and no back up for Sako.
    We must have one of the smallest squads in the league and it is starting to tell!
    Our subs bench is laughably bad.

    Too true. Dicko looked off the pace when he came on IMHO. I hope he is OK for tuesday, we need him.

    We need Iorfa and Goldbourne too. Fingers crossed.

    It's nice to know the facts now - thanks v much, as always, Jonzy.

    Jackett took a lot of, perhaps unfair, abuse for these changes.

    It is becoming clearer and clearer that the club never intended to push for promotion this season,instead settling for mediocrity.

    I find that disgraceful tbh.

    Thanks for the info. He should have left Iorfa off the bench and put Jacobs on then, so much of the criticism came from that one change. It would take a bizarre and freaky turn of events for us to need to make 3 defensive substitutions

    As the previous posts have said, makes it even more stupid as a business- which the club is- to not strengthen in the transfer window IF the club does want to get promoted and progress.

    Does seem the club is happy to remain static in this Division. If they are- perhaps there should be some honesty about it.

    The squad is too weak but at least have one of Jacobs, Doyle, Eusebio or Keita on the bench! Three defenders is ridiculous.

    What's the point when Jackett has no intention of using them at the moment?

    Swallow your pride Kenny and put Doyle on the bench.In treating Dicko with kid gloves boy you will look an idiot if you run him into the ground and then expect to play VLP up top .

    He needs to buck his ideas up and start using some of them then. He has chosen to have this squad lacking in depth. We need more attacking options on the bench.

    But he won't. He's got his 18-21 or so players and keeps saying it, but yet people still expect him to change his ways. He won't, so let's not moan about a reserve or kid not making the bench.
