    I think he has to use this game as both a rehearsal for Exeter but to further understand his fringe players and his shortcomings in the squad.

    yeah, Chesterfield was a good example of that. Heard he was a bit blunt regarding the youth players.

    I would think the team on Saturday will be very much the team that plays at Exeter,with the exception of Songo’o who probably won’t make Saturday but hopefully fit for Exeter. Unless of course he follows the familiar pattern of our injured players from last season. He’s got a slight knock. He’s going for a scan. He’s going to see our specialist. He’s out for 6 to 8 weeks. We don’t see him again until next year.

    Treat this as our first league game, you don’t learn real lessons about a team until they’re in a competitive environment.

    I think he knows the shortcomings of his fringe players already. Doesnt strike me as a man who needs two bites to learn which bit of the apple is poison

    I'm traveling over so it'll be my first game this season. Hopefully I'll see a strong side and a matching performance.

    Joking aside, have the club actually said anything at all about what the issue is? They posted a video of him on Twitter arriving at the stadium before the game on Saturday looking fine and ready to go, then no sign of him since then?

    Just seen DAs reaction on City's YouTube and he said he won't be playing his team for the Exeter game at Accy. And that anyone can read into it what they will

    Why tell the opposition one of your main men is going to be missing. That type of info is crucial information to the teams we play. Think about it grumps

    Yes just seen that you would have thought this would be the match to play the first eleven but whether he thinks Exeter will be watching I don’t know

    Adams “Im not playing my first 11” Exeter: we won’t be going chaps he’s not playing his first 11.

    More psychological stuff goes on in this game than…. we imagine. He will mix and match over 90 .
    He’s no mug!

    I see Adams comments a bit differently. To me he's saying that there are places for Exeter still open for those that aren't selected from the start and whoever he does pick to start on Saturday shouldn't rest on their laurels as it doesn't mean they're an automatic pick for the first game.

    Standard management practice in keeping everyone motivated for me.

    I have thought about it Kevin and how many times did this drip feed information happen last year. Staunton, Novak- It was social media that revealed his injury then the drip feed started. Hosannah was another one. To be honest Kevin most of our players are much of a muchness and I don’t think the opposing team will be that bothered if the club discloses if a player is out. We don’t exactly have someone like Harry Kane. Just hope Songo’o isn’t going down the same drip feed path and hope he’s back for Exeter.

    I get what you are saying, but if it helps in any way whatsoever to get a win….say nothing to the oppo.
