There are a number of reasons, I would imagine, why there were six changes from Saturday, not least the fact that we have a game on Saturday that if won, will bring in much needed money to the coffers. Often, by the time we begin the Middlesex Senior Cup, we are already out of the FA Trophy.
We don't have the luxury of having a reserve / U21 side in which we can give players minutes, the season so far has been full-on with only two blank midweeks since August. I don't think yesterday was a case of not being fussed about the Middlesex Senior Cup, it was more likely a case of protecting certain players ahead of a more important game Saturday and giving others minutes. We don't know who, out of those rested, might have been carrying knocks. All of those who played were in the first-team squad, it wasn't as though Gary suddenly plucked a whole host of 17 year olds out of thin air to play the game. The only players who played last night to have appeared in less than half our games this season were Brendan Hazlett, Max McCann, Charlie Goode (who has only been available to play in two) Peter Dean and Adam Wallace. Two of those names are because of injury problems this season.
We still have good chances of silverware, we are still in the London Senior Cup (arguably more prestigious than the Middlesex Senior Cup), we are still in the League Cup and.... to be perfectly honest, looking at the league this season, a play-off spot is ours to throw away.
I can understand the frustration at paying £12, but I also think a little perspective is required, that was only our fourth defeat in 26 matches this season. Unheard of at this stage.
