Team selection for this Saturday will be interesting! Last week's team was very nearly our best .

I agree with you, Compo, that tomorrow's match is worthless, however, our performance matters much more than the result. Losing, rather like winning, becomes a habit and this season Bedford have woefully under-performed. Against Newcastle there was spirit and fight despite losing the match but the same cannot be said for any other game this season as far as I can see.
This squad, small as it is, is not short of talent but is short of experience (and, currently, short of match-fit players). The new No 8 might make a difference but will take time to bed in but, as has been said on another thread, our centres are not firing in offence or defence and our half backs are not pulling the strings in the same way as in previous seasons.
A win tomorrow is much more important than securing some points - it is about setting the scene for Boxing Day and beyond.

Well Iíll be there, cheering them on. First match of the season.......once Iíve caught three trains from North Yorkshire, not to mention four back tomorrow whilst nursing a hideous hangover.
Just be glad you get the chance to watch the Blues as and when you please. Iíve already lost Rotherham and soon to be Leeds as local games I can watch.
Hopefully, Strachan and Worley can solidify the midfield, and Worley find his form from last season. Itís also another chance for Hart and Hooley to work on their partnership. Letís also see what our new Samoan is like. If heís fit and finds some form it could be a season changer.
I like the look of the back five - three bruisers and two proper loosies. Iím also looking forward to seeing Robbie Smith. He looked top class against Newcastle.
