    I would favour, North, South and West as well instead of Gillead.

    Good performance tonight, much more intensity in our play both on and off the ball. Really encouraging defensive performance after Saturday's antics too.

    Much better side when we play with width and was definitely a much more balanced looking team. Banks was promising and Chapman looks more influential centrally.

    Need to back it up on Saturday now.

    Can I put in record now that all through the summer I while heartedly supported Andy Cook?

    Feel free to search and dig out my old posts :cool:

    Just looking through the results - half the championship are out!

    12 OUT and at least 2 more will go tomorrow.

    As likely to get an L1 or L2 as we are Champ or PL. Looking forward to the draw - for a change!!!

    Newcastle, Everton or Leeds please.

    So MK Dons or Exeter nailed on.

    Defensively yes , offensively no. East is a lovely player for me going forward. So horses for courses perhaps?

    Was a really good day that, got upgraded to a box as we bought McCall suite tickets early. Then got to see that magnificent performance from Cook. Has he had a better game?

    On to round two.

    Up The Mighty Bantams.

    Sutton in midfield for Gillead would be best choice. Excellent work rate tackling and breaking up attacks and winning possession and makes up for Smallwood been a bit slower

    Thought Smallwood was excellent.

    No Gillead is perfect for that position

    Just got in, not caught up yet, but what a performance, not withstanding the score, reminded me of the win against Villa back in the day, so much organization, desire and commitment, really proud, well done all...

    Apparently it’s still regionalised in 2nd round.
    I’d like to play Barrow again - prove we’ve learnt from last Saturday!

    Kev, Gilliead couldn't tackle a hot dinner. He's been forced backwards because he's ineffective further forward but for me he's still only really an average utility player and definitely shouldn't be anywhere near a promotion chasing first XI.

    Thanks for reinforcing my belief Park. I was wavering slightlybut your opinion removes any doubt whatsoever.

    Spirited performance from the Bantams.
    Thoroughly deserved and what an atmosphere created in the stadium.
    One of those special nights to savour under the lights down at VP.

    The problem with Gilliead is he's predominantly a forward thinking player. Then we had Young, Chapman, Banks, Cook ahead of him - also forward players. None of them are good at sensing danger and that's where their goal came from. If you watch it back, in that move every player, including the guy who shot, had too much time and space and no City player near them. Smallwood was dashing all over trying to close each of them down. The team isn't balanced with five attacking players although it worked last night.
