Good points, I'm not sure, but I would guess Bowditch is one of our higher earners, in which case perhaps it is time for him to go. On the other hand he has started in 26 games this season and been on the bench on numerous occasions, so he hasn't suffered from frequent injuries this season. Also, in a pretty awful season, his goals per game ratio is probably one of the best at the club. I suppose it all depends whether he features in Robbie Nielson's plans for the future.

That's because we're so used to Potter who (nearly) always makes the right choices.

Agreed

I thought he did the wing back's job pretty well. I'm not really sure why, if he wanted to play three centre backs, he didn't play Tilney at LWB and play Reeves where he can be most effective.


Did we play wing backs? George Baldock got forward a lot, but for most of the time Lewie was in left back territory, although as a defender and support only, while Ben Reeves was stuck on the wing.


Reeves took the throw ins in the second half, not Lewie.

Sorry, am I missing something. Does taking the throws mean you are playing wing back?

I agree, although I would caution that two of the goals were against Newport and he hasn't scored over 10 goals in a season since 2012/13. He can now make me eat my words. :D

It's a pretty good indicator - along with Lewie tucked in.

We will have to differ on this one, but I will look out for throws in the future. :D

I don't think anyone could have predict this, but Gills' kit man has been sacked for forgetting the kit.

Most of us will probably admit to making mistakes, but it's hard to imagine what else he had to do [balls of course]. Did he sit on the club coach thinking "Now I'm sure I have forgot something, but I can't put my finger on it" ? :?

Heard about this shortly before KO but when Gills came out with their correct kit on I just assumed it was an April 1st thingy.
Nearest I can remember about the Dons being without kit was an away game up north when the kit van broke down and the coach we were in had to pull into a service station to collect it.

The supporters coach was on its way to Swindon one time, they had to turn back and go to the club shop to pick up a new shirt for Daniel Powell.
