Ahead of the midweek fixture, against Millwall, here at Vital Luton Town, we joined the growing clamour for Nathan Jones to make wholesale changes to his starting eleven.
Our article – luton-nathans-millwall-dilemma – championed such a drastic demand after witnessing consecutive defeats, against Cardiff City and Stoke City, where the Hatters were, at best, extremely poor.
Nathan duly obliged and for the Millwall game the gaffer made, if I can count right, six changes.
It was a move that gained the approval of the Hatters faithful, with the selection of social media comments, below, illustrating the point:
Now that's a good line up

NJ has a humongous pair of bollocks for this.

Good line up, let's do this tonight boys

Sadly, after leading for so long, the Hatters conceded a last-gasp stoppage time and had to be content with a share of the spoils.
Many of the posts left after the game, blamed the fact that Nathan brought on the old guard to see out time, as the posts below show:
So we play a really good game, get a goal and then change things that made us look worse?!

Jones does this every time. When will he learn to stop going defensive at 1-0 with half an hour left?

Test for Jones now if he reverts back to the numpties on Saturday. He simply cannot, it was encouraging until he started chopping and changing. When does he ever do that??? 🙄

This Saturday, Luton welcome Sheffield Wednesday, to Kenilworth Road, for a Championship fixture. With only 1 point taken from the last 9 available and with Sheffield Wednesday fighting for their Championship lives, it is a game Luton just have to win.
Sat here in the editorial chair, I am throwing my support behind Nathan Jones being brave and going for, more-or-less, the same starting eleven he opted for against Millwall.
But is that a ploy you would offer your support to?

Luton v Sheffield Wednesday?
Luton Town to Win!
Sheffield Wednesday to Win!
