Thought I might take the liberty of starting this MDT, as tomorrow will be my first game of the season and, judging from the reviews so far, I can't wait!

Hoping to see Agyei and Moore start, and also hoping to see a bit of Woodburn for the first time. Posh will presumably play a strong team, as they look to get their first team minutes so they can gel.

2-1 OUFC, Agyei at the double in a scintillating home debut.
 
Interesting too see who will play up top as i would guess mackie will be rested. Is agyei match fit? Did Taylor sign in time? Looking forward to see Moore play as well.
 
I think Agyei is unavailable for a few weeks as he hasn't really had a pre-season.
 
Would like to get Mackie a rest. With his age, work rate and injury history, I'm not sure I want him playing twice a week this early in the season.
Problem is - if not him, who else plays up front? Be great if it was Agyei, but sounds like he may need some more time before he's game ready.
May have to be someone (Woodburn? Napa?) playing a slightly unnatural position.

Then on the flip side, I'd like to get Forde, Moore, Sykes, Long & Hanson a game - make sure they're all sharp and up to match speed.

Perhaps something like the following?

Eastwood
Long Dickie Moore Ruffels
Hanson Gorrin
Henry Sykes Forde
Woodburn

Maybe Rob Hall instead of Henry as well, if he's up to 90 minutes.

Still a good side.....but turning it into something of a 1b vs. 1b contest......
 
Heard P’boro are again spending g a good for k’s by using an Oxford hotel, (same as Friday and Saturday just gone) for day sleeps and pre match meal..

Maybe Berkoe for Ruffels or Henry with Forde switching to the right if Henry.

Would love to see all the players who haven’t had a chance yet to start.

Stevens
McMahon Jones Moore
Sykes Hanson too soon for Baptiste?
Hall and Agyei
Taylor:)

We want to win.
Not McMahon. Long has to be ahead of him.
 
This early in the season the "1st team" need playing time together, so hopefully not too many changes. Give starts to those who have been recruited as 1st 11 players, such as Moore, and Agyei if he's ready.
 
Eastwood

Cadden Mous Moore Berkoe

Hanson Gorrin

Forde Brannagan Fosu

Woodburn


...Would be my starting XI.

Would still hope there's enough there to roll Posh over a second time in a matter of days!

Agree with that!

Agyei to make his debut, coming off the bench?
 
I hope Agyei plays, same as most others, I'd like to see some of the squad players getting a game:

Eastwood
Long Dickie Moore Berkoe
Hanson Sykes
Forde Brannagan Hall
Agyei

Bench: Stevens, Jones, Lofthouse, Mackie, Fosu, Woodburn, Gorrin

Replace Agyei with Woodburn up front to see how he gets on. Even better put Taylor up top if he's sneakily signed :)

Wouldn't disagree with this team at all, except maybe Henry in the no.10 role with Sykes on the right.
