Talbot v Benburb

Recommended Posts

I think Aiden Wilson has done superbly in the games he has played in, and shows yet again that Tucker can pick them out young and mould them in the Talbot way for the long term. Totally different player to Gordon Pope, and I honestly don't think it's going to be as easy as some folk might think to get back in. What it does mean, of course, is that there is genuine competition for the place and that is always healthy.

Popes been fit the last 3 games and hasn't played.

Can't see it. If Popey is fit he will go straight back in. At least another 3 seasons in him

Gordon Pope is talbots best defender. Going forward he offers talbot so much aswell as defending . Young Aidan has done well but if pope is fit then not sure what the reason he’s not playing

Agree with this. Aiden has done OK defensively although to be fair hasn't really been tested but Pope offers so much more going forward whether that is a strike from distance or getting forward and getting in a cross.

Pope has pretty much played every game over the last few seasons so a short break may do him good but I expect to see him back in the team sooner rather than later.

Jeeso if it's no give the young blood a run of games, its give the experienced players a game lol. Imo, Tuckers just giving Aiden a run of games and Pope is experienced enough to not only come straight back in but no lose the plot in the meanwhile. Personally wouldn't be surprised if we see more similar rotation.

Aidan has done really well since coming in popes crossing and goal threat edged him in front but as said earlier think there could be some rotation n tucker looks like he’s found a good one yet again.

Yeah could see as early as the friendly against Neilston he was baller. Up for the physical but with the skill of pro youth, with pope as a mentor could well see him developing simlar famous runs and killer shots.

The big one this week. Interesting to see who will start ?? Had a wee look at Tayport league position not the greatest however , this is a one off and shocks often happen in the cups.
