another home game thats win able,but will the tiredness step in or not?

Don't get it this tiredness job ,let em try climbing the Alps  and other mountain  ranges  on a bike eight hours a day for three weeks in 40 degrees  or freezing weather with only two rest days  in-between   or even carrying the hod to a couple of bricklayers on bonus for five days a week then they would really know what it is to truly knackered .

Completely agree, not buying it either. They should be able to cope with it these days.

Not confident with this one though, need Fletcher back asap but not sure just him being in the team would be enough

I've always found it a bit bizarre. 

 

Anyone who has ever played Sunday League Football, will be able to relate to the end of season catch up games. All of those games that were missed due to waterlogged pitches, suddenly have to be played. Before you know it, you've got Bradway on a Sunday, Crookes Punchbowl on a Tuesday and Colley Club on a Thursday.....all in the same week, 

 

This isn't the same I hear you say? You can't compare The Meadowhall Sunday League with professional football......To an extent you are correct. But we managed it and we were far from the conditioned athletes that these guys are.  Let's not forget that professional teams have bulkier squads of decent players also. 

Spot on, plus we also did a 40 hour week (at least) at work in between the matches lol.

Yes I don't know how todays footballers would get on if they had to cope with the challenges and tackles that were flying around 40 years ago, I think some of them would be shouting for mummy the way they go down and roll about on the floor after the slightest touch.
