Finally a slight bit of consistency in the lineup this season. Bannan is back for this weekend which is a big bonus. My team:

 

                      Dawson

 

      Lees        Hector        Pudil

 

Palmer Reach  Pelupessy   Bannan     Penney

 

                                     FF

                      Nuhiu

 

I believe Jos will stick with the back 3/5. It seems to be his default system.

Jos does like to make changes so might see Thorniley and Fletcher back in the side

Id go to a back 4 personally. There’s enough legs in that midfield to screen the back 4. We aren’t good enough with the ball at the back to play a back 3. Pudil and Dave will definitely be rested for this one. Thorniley battles out with Hector for a place in the side.

I know it's all about opinions but leaving Hector out is a very big call....

Really like the look of Thorniley and found it tough to leave him out but I’d try Lees and Hector as a partnership. We just need a clean sheet from somewhere.

It’s a difficult call.

I like 4 at the back simply because it allows us to play that proper midfield 3 with Reach and FF as wide players.

It just looks so well balanced.

 

But despite being under a lot of pressure in the last two we have defended well with 3 at the back.

It also helps at set pieces.

 

It didn’t go too well last season when Jos changed to a 4 at Bristol 

 

Glad it’s not my call

True points. a back 3 is a definite I believe, the only indefinite is the personal haha

Agreed, I think he's been our best player over the last 3 games. Been excellent

I'd like Both the loanees in, I think they have added a much needed boost to the side in terms of height and pace through the middle.

 

Dawson

 

Palmer

 

Lees

Hector

Thorniley

 

Penney

 

Onomah

Bannan

 

Reach

Forrestieri

 

Fletcher

 

 

May as well start Reach on the right of a three so he can be nearer his prime shooting spot, FF cutting in from the left can work a treat too.

 

Will need Hector to step forward to allow Bannan or Onomahto get up to Fletcher though and stop us getting out numbered in the middle.

 

It's a tough call to go away from home and drop Joey though. Might see FF on the bench instead

Any news on Matias, and Hutch?

Matias two weeks (no seriously)  Hutch not ready for this game but should be after international break.

Agreed unless we are talking about distribution then he has been our worst.

Pudil was looking a bit stressed for the last 15mins. constantly holding the bridge of his nose. Obviously the break is concerning him.

At one point he was leaning on the advertising boards in front of the north and looked out of it for while....

 

Therefore if Thorniley is fit i think he may play instead.

His distribution on Wednesday was very poor. I lost count of the times he gave the ball away. Don’t get me wrong he’s done ok since he come in and has brought height to the team which we need. Thorniley is very good tho and is ready.

 

Its a very tricky one. We either play 3-4-3 or go 4-3-3 and I’d rather go with a back 4 personally. Few reasons why; our centre defenders aren’t good enough on the ball to start attacks and bring the ball out of defence and this is pivotal in this formation. Did you see Lees trying to bring the ball out of the right side of defence on Wednesday night. Looked very uncomfortable. Neither Baker or Palmer are good enough in attacking areas on the right in this formation. Moreover, if we do play Bannan and Onomah and Joeypussy in a midfield 3, there’s enough legs in there to help the back line and support the strikers. Man City and Liverpool play this system brilliantly and both teams have energetic midfield players.

Same team as Wednesday night for me, keep Baz on the bench till later, let em get used to playing without his workrate, then unleash him around 60 mins. and Jud on around the same time.

I can’t see us keeping a clean sheet unless we go back to a back 4, but if Jos thinks 3 is the way to go and it’s just a case of us getting used to it, then fair enough

I’d give Penney a rest.

 

This lad is itching for some action.
