  1. Absolutely right - we tried to replace Emile Heskey like for like and got Ade Akinbiyi
  2. Me too - what a game .I've still not got over us selling The Doog before the end of the season
  3. Credit where it’s due , I thought she was a quality ref .The way she let the game flow and ignored the now familiar overreaction to challenges ,was a breath of fresh air - in total contrast to the fussy , card happy officiating we had in our CL league campaign and are accustomed to seeing in European competitions
  4. I think we have an unallocated space in our squad ,so could still sign a free agent
  5. Losing Wilf also massively diminishes our aerial competitiveness ,which I think is partly why he played 3 at the back last night .As Choudhury is nailed on to start on Sat , I wouldn't be surprised to see Benkovic brought back in if he's fit , especially as Fuchs has played so much recently ( although on form there would be a good case for dropping Chilwell instead )
  6. Luton have made 10 changes from last Saturdays starting XI
  7. Benkovic’s positioning was very poor for the fourth goal as well - his performance against England will be fascinating
  8. My mind went straight to the Sunderland game after Saturday , which prompted me to recall other 'false dawns' I can remember, including beating Plymouth 4-0 in Sept 1987. This was Jari Rantanen's third game and three days after we'd beaten Oldham 4-1, when he'd scored his first goal for us . His awesome physique and aerial power complimented Mike Newell's pace and skill perfectly and the side containing Russell Osman ,Steve Walsh , Ian Wilson, Alli Mauchlen and Gary McAllister seemed destined for a real promotion challenge . Sadly, Wilson was sold immediately afterwards ,Rantanen got
  9. Just looked in on the live stream and saw that the game is being played at Alfreton Town’s ground which has a serious slope towards the end we are defending in the first half .In theory, we should have a significant advantage in the second.
  10. I agree completely -he’s got a lovely left foot ,can pick a pass and rarely concedes possession .I fully expect we’ll see him in the first team before the end of the season .
  11. Charlie Austen just been banned for two games so misses our game on Sat .
