When you think and look we have one of the best squads. I

I know you don't win owt with names on paper but if you look.

 

Defence takes care of itself.

 

Midfield:

Hutch

Abdi 

Bannan

Lee

Reach

Wallace

Mcmanaman

Forestieri

 

Winnall

Rhodes

Hooper

Fletcher

 

Plenty of experience and goals.

 

 

We have an excellent squad but I still feel we are a little short at the back. A couple of injuries away from struggling there

 IWouldn't change owt.

Theres a difference to coming on when you are coasting as to coming on when its still in the balance and the pressure is off...They coulda brought me on at the time and a backheel mighta come off.

FF or Bannan 

Yea in the proposed lineup above I'd bench Bannan to get Fox in with Reach higher up. Hunt drives forward and would need to go on many of his runs with FF coming out to support him.

Abdi and Hutch core of midfield.

If you'd told me a year ago that those two would be talked about as 1st candidates for dropping I'd have called you a fool. Incredible squadron

I might give bannan a rest in a straight swap for Abdi. Would be good for both players.

Abdi has to start Tuesday with hutch.

Reach out left and give bannan and ff a rest

Gone are the days when Potter used to send me potty! 

We have a number of quality options in midfield now -  we can all have different options and permutations of midfield players (that excludes KL at present),  but at least we have these options now!

We must have the best squad of players in this division now? If not top 3. 

 

The below team of players didn't feature tonight..

 

Wildsmith 

 

Palmer
Lees
Pudil
Emmanuelson 

 

Buckley
Lee
Jones
Matias

 

Hooper
Fletcher 

 

Then there's Abdi, McManaman and Reach who were only on the bench 

 

Amazing

He is the epitome of a playmaker.

 

Makes intelligent passes and understands what is happening and how to manage the possession intelligently.

 

 

 

This is an excellent point, we could certainly benefit from giving away possession too cheaply at times.

indeed it is but tonight we gave up majority share of possession to get ball forward quicker and get 3 goals

we've had possession for past 3 months but not enough goals

Enigma really but that's CC's problem in balancing it all

Jesus. Our 2nd 11 would have a cracking chance of making the playoffs over a fulll season, a far cry from 2 years ago.

Bannan started very well. Was controlling the first 15 minutes. I think he just got tired. 

 

Abdi looked composed & broke up play well when he came on. Would be happy with him starting or getting more time on Tuesday.

Let's leave it Carlos!  Both selection and subs were spot on tonight!

With Sasso beginning to settle in at the back I would think Carlos is giving some thought to 3-5-2.

This against blackburn maybe 

           

                    Westwood 

       Hunt Lees Loovens Reach 

                   Hutchinson 

           Bannan              Abdi

                     Forestieri 

              Winnall   Rhodes 

Why would you get rid of the wide players, we put some decent crosses in today for the first time in a long time and secured our biggest win of the year.

Jones

Bannan

McManaman

Fletcher

Forestieri

I'm really hoping abdi now steps up, mainly because for bannan doesn't offer enough. He works really hard but is weak, too negative and is poor in front on goal. We need a bit more in the middle for me.
