I heard mention that Tutu would be available this week, is this the case? I know we’ve heard it before several times.

If we had all our current players available this week I think I would go

——-Phillips
—-Mozz Flint Brown
Ng —Sang -Ralls —Tutu
——--Tomlin
-—Wilson Moore
Playoffs here we come!

That’s pretty much what I’d go for other than Nelson for Brown, doesn’t look up to it for me.

At some stage, if we accept we're not going to hit playoffs, we should go without the loan players and use kids instead. The loan players won't be back next season after all.
Tutu is a good player and has served us well but once we've accepted the season is over we are better off giving a game to one of our players rather than one of Arsenal's. That obviously doesn't apply if we're thinking of buying him but that seems unlikely.

If Tutu was fit - no way he plays without at least 1 u23 game - he'd be rwb, Ng left.

Tomlin is shot. I doubt we'll see him again.

In two minds about Wilson. He's flattered to deceive most of the season and again, he'll not be here next season, would prefer to see Watters or Colwill play instead.

I was wondering if Tutu had played in this mysterious game against Exeter City?

I would he happy to see Colwill play too. And Watters would surely look better if we played the likes of Sang, Tomlin and Wilson behind him.
I felt sorry for him the other day being thrown on for ten minutes when we were 5-0 down, I don’t know if he even got a touch

The problem for me is that from what I've seen, Watters is at his best playing off the shoulder of the last defender much like Chopra was.. Putting him on to do the role Moore does... it's apples and oranges. Sang, Wilson and even Bowen may look to play those slide rule passes McPhail and Whitts did but that style I don't think helps Moore. Playing off Moore getting onto the flickons is probably his best chance in this setup.

So we're in the position Tutu may be match fit within a few weeks, need Arsenal approval to play him.

What's the point of playing him at all? We need to see what we have at the club, not a loan player who has spent most of the season injured.
It's not like we're desperate to win games now, the rest of the season would be put to good use blooding youngsters imo

If playing him at fullback means Sang can be moved into midfield I’d be more for it
Cheltenham played Sang at rwb too - it may well be that is the position being considered for him permanently.

I'd prefer to see Bowen and Patten get some game time ideally together.
