Surely they will ship at least one of the two under performing left backs in Jan. What I can’t get my head round is why he has both on the bench - is it just to show them how he sees the team developing? Your not in at the moment - this is why?

I'd understand more in a 4-2-3-1, as he's sometimes played Mascoll further forward. But then he wouldn't need Taft and Greenidge on the bench too. Maybe when he has more options we won't see both.

Gordon he could possibly loan out to a National League side, even though it might be a slight waste of time if they don't play wingbacks (or don't play him). Mascoll, being older (but not by as much as you think) and from a higher division, might be harder to shift - but that would be up to IE & TP to fix a problem of their own making.

Interesting selection problem for Evatt. He's got Arthur, Fonz and Miller who all seem to like to play as 10s or at least 9.5s. But does his system need a front-liner? Doyle often dropped deep too...

One other thing on last night. Evidently, iFollow was shit for the first half, which seems to have been when we played our best football of the season. After half time we tired and dropped and we fans were treated to familiar scenes spied between our tented fingers. Had the first half been so visible I suspect we'd be a lot bouncier now.

Let's hope for another good show - and visibility - on Saturday...

I followed last night's game on Twitter and FlashScores and was definitely bouncier at the final whistle than many on here.

I was in full bounce at final whistle. It was the 40 minutes preceding it that I shat myself. Fortunately the bounce cleared it all out.

I bet they weren’t even man enough to tackle a full English afterwards, either! 😉

You'll all be pleased to know they don't issue refunds.
Wonders refuse to cease – EFL are refunding iFollow users for the other night. Interesting – I thought they might have given half back or a voucher for a future game (bumps up the numbers) but they've just swallowed it and promised to pony up.

Might be due to the numbers complaining. No such luck last year.

Received an email from the EFL apologising for the Bradford cock-up, explaining what went awry and containing a pass code to watch Stevenage away fer nowt.

Have to say that this was the second time that I've been let down by EFL/iFollow, but credit where it's due, it's also the second time that they come through by way of customer service; first with a refund and this time with a free game.

Refund here too - I hadn't actually asked for one - it wasn't the best but I saw nearly all the match give or take a couple of minutes and about 10 minutes lag!

I'm guessing they've given the refund to everyone who bought the game, because I've got one too and only missed out on a few minutes of the game. Hopefully the club haven't lost out at all due to this.

Long time lurker, 25th time caller. I also have an email promising a refund even though, luckily, I didn't have an issue at all with the iFolllow on Tuesday (I was watching on an iPad which I gather was unaffected somehow). I think I've seen somewhere that the EFL/iFollow are swallowing the costs for this so the club don't miss out on anything. I only knew there were issues from following this thread! We did play with a lot more freedom and fluency in that first half, maybe somehow they were subconsciously more relaxed without the home crowd pressure...
