For what it’s worth I would have probably swapped Patterson for Windass rather than Rhodes for Kachunga. Also for what it’s worth I don’t think it would have made any difference to the outcome. I felt Stokes goal was coming regardless of what we did mainly because we just didn’t have the players to stop them. 
We had survived up to that point because Stoke had been wasteful not because we were keeping them out. Once Fletcher stayed on and seemed to run off his injury I thought we were stuffed. 
I’m relatively calm about last night. It was a poor but not awful. I don’t think we have the players to boss games like last nights. We actually got fairly close to nicking a point in the end. All in all games like last nights, and Millwall before it are the kind we will probably lose but might occasionally win. Staying up will be tough and will go right to the wire. The chance of us going on some massive unbeaten run putting all opponents to the sword is none existent.

As with all our strikers, it’s all about, who’s least worst

Exactly this. 
How many of our players are actually even ‘strikers’?

With options as limited as ours outcomes last night are I feel, inevitable.

With Rhodes on pitch we have a striker who was doing OK, offered a threat from crosses and scored 2 in recent weeks. 
 

Then he is subbed off for Kachunga, who offered nothing again. 
 

I just don’t get it. Can someone explain please? 
 

 

Another baffling moment from Thompson last night, along with his tactics.

Rhodes never seems to play more than 65mins for some reason

 

He's not played 90 mins for Wednesday since January 2018. Subbed off every start. 

 

He's been subbed off this season more times than he's started 😂

Personally you have to play Rhodes now every minute until the season ends supported by Patterson or Windass

 

The rest can bugger off

Both rubbish would prefer to give Marriott ago. 

The same Marriot in the short time he has spent in the pitch for Wednesday has offered next to nothing. I would personally start with Windass.

Windass flatters to deceive.

 

Poor finisher. Needs 4 or 5 chances to score, and you don’t get that in our side.

 

His passing is dreadful. Gives possession away too often.

We have one legitimate striker who has the Nous to pop up anytime to score , and he subs him ,Callum has been doing ok but looked a little jaded he should have gone for Windas

I said before the game Paterson and Rhodes wouldn't work as a combination. They are too slow and neither can carry the ball. The only teams it will work against are ones we can dominate in midfield. So basically, Wycombe, in this league.

 

I still wouldn't mind seeing Harris given a go as the support striker. He's actually got pace, can dribble and hold up the ball. Not very good at scoring goals, but then he's hardly alone there.

For me Rhodes is the only striker we have at the club. He has to play if fit every game until the end of the season. Then get anyone around him who fits the certain games to the best of the shower we have got.
