Bring Bazza back, move Reach to left back then choose between Palmer, Moses and Iorfa for right back. 

 

What didn’t you like about Palmer today or at Reading?

 

I thought he was superb.

Nice one to have but our best player of last season not sure of a start next game after that performance?

 

Difficult one for Bullen.

 

Personally I'd stay with today's midfield and Bazza gets a spot on the bench.

 

For me it builds team ethos and also everybody knows their place not guaranteed.

 

Lose your place and you have to fight to get it back.

 

All good for team and winning culture.

 

 

Always been a fan of win and keep your place. Particularly outfield.

 

That said even Dawson made a strong shout today too.

 

Bodes well for the season

 

 

No one in the entire squad should not be gaurenteed a starting spot, competition for places is the way to go.

I would drop Reach. If Bannan was involved today Harris and Murphy would have been bagging for fun.

 

I dont think Reach did much in the centre. Looked shattered at half time.

 

Not surprised. He worked his nads off. 

 

Did a lot of the unglamorous stuff today. Bullen won’t be dropping him anytime soon.

Millwall are going to be big, dirty and direct. Like bullen said it might be a case of changing things to suit, bring in the big guys in iorfa.

 

Personally I'd stick with today's team and change reach for bannan.

 

Or who says we don’t go

451 away from home 

or 4411

Left back , Palmer or Iorfa on the right ?

Reach never looked like a full back to me, a full back who can’t tackle, no way

Bannan gets the bench and that's it.

 

He will have to fight for his place. Plus I think he slows the game down.

 

Today was all about speed and my gosh those wingers are fast.

 

We have options, keep playing the same players despite others doing and we won't have options.

I reckon we’ll go 5-4-1 against a physical Millwall, looking to stay solid and come away with a good point, with the potential for three if we can nick a goal on the break.

 

We’re ahead of the game, a point away at Millwall would be a good result.

 

Iorfa to come in with his physical presence to play central alongside Lees and Borner.

 

Midfield of Harris, Hutch, Luongo, and Murphy.

 

Bannan, Lee and Reach rested in what will be more of a physical game.

 

Fletcher up front alone.

 

Harris and Murphy will be key to counter attacking on the break.

 

Hutch and Luongo doubling up to provide industry in the middle for what will be a competitive battle

I’m not so sure, if he changes the system to something we’re not totally comfortable with, and we lose, he’ll get a lot of stick. The difference between today, and last week, was we didn’t have control of the midfield. More likely to be the 4-5-1 system we played at Reading, with Hutchinson dropping into an auxiliary centre back role when needed

Agreed that control of midfield will be key. Luongo from what I can gather is an absolute engine on legs that never gives less than 100% and I think this factor strengthens our central midfield combativeness.

Not tough at all. Comes in for Reach or Murphy if we want to be more defensive. Reach is not good in the middle at all.

Short memories 

Reach did ok at left and Right back when called upon 

call me old fashioned but I do like a left back who is left footed 

talking about a fullback that can’t tackle Odabajo is your man

Tbh I didn’t think Palmer did anything wrong. It’s all about opinions about the best 11. 

 

Id prefer a left footed left back. I thought Moses looked a bit vulnerable first half and I’d probably put Palmer there. 

 

Great to have competition for places.

No, I agree, with both of those things. I would have liked us to sign a left back, then ideally Palmer would revert to right back. Both Odubajo, and Iorfa, don’t have a clue what’s going on behind them. Maybe not so important as wing backs, but behind two out and out wingers like Harris and Murphy, you really need your full backs to be able to defend

Agreed.

 

Not forgetting Iorfa, who was superb late last season.

 

Good luck Bully!

Two games into the season with players not quite up to speed in the squad. Play a similar team to what we have.

 

bannan comes in for Murphy for me. If after 60 minutes anyone is off the pace then change according. Reach is one of the few players we have who are always fit for 90.

Got a few negs in the Bazza thread for saying he wouldn’t be missed in today’s game,  the players need to get used to not playing everything through Bannan it’s slows the pace of our play and a lot of the time we are too deep for a high press game, I’m not knocking Bannans quality today showed this season he won’t be the main man .

For me Millwall will be what they are heavy handed and physical. They will be tough to break down.. 

Means your torn between matching them up and starting by battling. 

So for me we start with hutch, luongo and Lee. 

Second half bring bazza on for whomever is struggling. 

For me tactical awareness is about picking players to fit the system and that will do the job. 

Millwall will be a battle first half, so pick those that will be up for a scrap.

I'd be more inclined to agree with that if being dropped was justified and not through unfortunate circumstance...
