I'm going to take my radio up Scafell with me on Saturday and see what the reception is like while we perform our great escape.

Scafell and not the Pike?

Which route you taking?

And why would you start a thread without a poll!

Brown tongue, lord's rake is a great ascent, always find mickledore to Scafell Pike not particularly interesting or enjoyable and busy!

Scafell is easily the better walk. The pike is a bit boring.

Nobody I'm with wants to go up Lord's Rake. It's a social walk, the route is largely irrelevant tbh - it's just something to hang a couple of nights camping on.

Yeah I know that story. The other half rarely wants to do the fun stuff! Though obviously camping and hiking are fun in themselves.

Back to the game, we're obviously doomed because OOJW's beloved Lambert is in charge at Wolves. He's the greatest manager ever, he's even been to Allemagne.

All games are utterly unpredictable now. Blind hope is the only way forward.

I will have no hope with no poll, except Hope Akpan, I always have room for Hope Akpan.

I'm disillusioned that even Mowbray has started playing Lowe and Akpan together in midfield.

I demand a Guthrie.

How much will having 5 players back impact the outcome of this game?

I for one, would care not to see two of those in the starting 11 (Steele & Greer). Keep Raya & Ward.

Mulgrew, Lenihan & Graham should be useful.

Well Greer was punditing on the Brighton game tonight, so probably won't be in the team tomorrow.

If Lenihan and Mulgrew are available it would make our defensive options better. Ironically we played our best football against Bristol City with Conway and Bennett as full backs. Mulgrew is probably our best midfielder and is wasted in the back four. A statement of intent would be...
-----------------Raya----------------
Conway---Ward---Hoban---Bennett
Mahoney--Mulgrew--Guthrie--Feeney
---------Gallagher-- Emnes-------------

Plenty of options on the bench with Williams, Akpan, Lowe, Graham, Joao,
