Early predictions for Monk's first line-up

Recommended Posts

Monk is 4-4-2 attacking, Big man and little(ish) man up top, pace on wings with sold full backs but plenty of energy..

 

This is what I would go with if Lees is injured

Palmer Bates Borner Fox

Reach-Luongo-Bannan-Harris

-------Fletcher--Rhodes------

Can just see his first pre match press conference:

 

Sheffield Wednesday will play Four Four effin Two.

 

I really hope that is not the case and we play a 4-3-3 with possibly 3-5-2 as a plan B.

just had a thought, weren't it Nuhiu and Fletch up top when Nuhui bagged all them goals?

 

I know it goes against the little and large of Che Adams & Jutkiewicz but I don't actually want to play Rhodes as he's cack, Winnall doesn't look fit, maybe Nuhiu and Fletch? 

 

He seemed to do well with Fletch as he wasn't the main target man which actually suited him weirdly enough, that forward line will terrify a shakey Huddersfield defence

If he’s a good manager, and I expect he is, he won’t be a 442 man or a 433 man etc...Instead, he will look at the tools at his disposal and decide what is their best formation.

 

I would be surprised if we don’t line up in a 433/451 at Hudersfield, with 11 square pegs in 11 square holes.

I think Bullen will have a big influence and we will stick with what we have seen previously for a few weeks.

I think (hope) we set up to attack and press high, if we get an early goal it could take the sting out of the crowd who will be right up the arse of the Cowley's

 

They don't score many, so getting 2 is a challenge for a team used to losing.....451 and sitting back shouldn't be an option

I have no idea who he's going to pick or in what set up.

 

Actually, I find that quite exciting. 

 

*Until I see the line up and set and mutter "Well I wouldn't have done that and i wouldnt have picked him"

That's what you'd go for. But the title is Monk's first line up.

Think he will play a system with 3 central midfielders. With 2 in there we will get massively overrun with huge gaps for our opponents to run through us like what happened against QPR...

Hoping Rhodes is nowhere near the starting line up!

Cant believe anybody still wants Nuhiu in the starting 11!

I'd like to thing he'd bring in Lee to the midfield - looking at the training video, Lee looks sharp and with some quick movement.

 

Monk was at the QPR game, so hopefully he changes the formation or personnel - full backs were woeful.

 

Bannan is a conundrum - can affect the game positively but he needs others in the midfield to do the graft. Up front, keep Fletch as an out-n-out striker but play Reach and Harris just behind and wide but use their energy to drift in from the wing when required - Harris is too static out wide for me.

 

                                                                 Fletcher

                              Reach                                                           Harris

Fox                                          Bannan/Luongo                 Lee/Luongo                     Odubajo/Iorfa

                                 Hutch                     Lees              Borner

                                                         

                                                               Westwood
