A small squad and a number of absentees. Its a fact of life and we just need to live with it. I am sure the Management team are aware of the issues.

As for the game, we played well and defended heroically. Pity we couldn't hold out, but to be fair they deserved a point at the end. We could/should have had a penalty which might have made the game safe, but overall it was entertaining and the effort was first class.

A bigger squad requires a bigger budget & until 350/400 plus people start coming through the gates EVERY home game, I guess the club will have to work with a smaller squad & budget. If the fans want a bigger squad & success then they need to start coming to games & spending money which will then give the club a chance to give the manager a bigger budget. Look at what the management team & playing squad have done with a small squad, A GREAT FA CUP RUN, AN OUTSIDE PLAY OFF CHANCE, A DECENT FA TROPHY RUN. So get behind the club & who knows where it could go?? I also have noticed how quiet the fans are at home games on Tuesday 40 Stafford fans made more noise than 260 witton fans. LETS MAKE SOME NOISE & support the lads.

All valid points guys, but doesn't answer why Development/Academy players cannot be used in an emergency to fill our bench. They would do it for free I'm sure!

I can only assume that the Academy lads are not quite ready & putting them in too early could set back their development both physically & mentally as this league is a tough league. I'm sure the management aren't ignoring them on purpose so there must be a valid reason. I am playing devil's advocate here as i can see it from both sides.
