I thought Sam Smeaton grafted really hard in attack and particularly defence...he was one of 3 players I didn't think should be in the side and he stepped up to the plate.
So full marks.

I think Horne needs to sort out his best side and play them with a bit of clever rotation to give everyone a game and keep his best players from getting burnt out.

I don't think we know the best side yet....but we soon will and I am convinced it includes a place for Ben Johnston in the starting line up and not just a utility back.
I think we need to find a fullback.. Misi and Ben seem a bit lightweight at fullback.
Then we would be the business.

There is enough potential in the young forwards to be very optimistic...although they need schooling in the dirty cheating ways of opposition ball stealers and wind up merchants.
I noticed a couple got suckered once or twice yesterday.
Rochdale were very savvy and really well drilled and I thought better organised and quicker from the play the ball.
Fitter too...
But the elements are all there for the Dons to be formidable...under a great coach....like me!

I see that good old Jason has not lost his rush defence technique and leaving a gap you can march an army through :lol: . Wouldn't be without him though

It's a debating point....should a coach let players play their own game or should said coach make players iron out faults and play the 'team' game.
Case in point is Jake Connor ....brilliant artist and creator but an ar//se at times.
Cost Hull the league game vs Wigan.

You're probably right. When he connects it's great. Often doesn't though.

I wouldn't mind but Miller is hardly a quality half , give me Matty and Watson over him everyday.

Looks like their bubble has burst after one game of giving it the big licks, and with Rochdale , Hunslet and Workington as their next three games their season could be over by the end of the month.

Bless, bitter much? Who exactly was "giving it the big licks"?

Bless? Let's diffuse this. No need to patronise. At the level we both play at a little humility may be more appropriate.

Apologies, nothing against Doncaster at all, was just pretty taken aback by Keith's apparent hatred of my team, we're hardly bitter rivals after all. And as for "#bucketcollection"... Really?

We will see.
You obviously didn't see his social media post after the game , hence my comments.
