Lets be honest, apart from Fletcher the forwards aren't really firing so having him back will be a big boost.

Harris and Reach either side of Fletcher, with Forestieri just behind would be my preference.

 

I agree with everyone that he shouldn't walk straight into the starting eleven, but I'd prefer to see him coming on to replace Harris/Reach rather than Murphy at the moment.

Only if he pulls his finger out ?

Fernando Forrestieri owes us big time ..

Our club have been loyal to him 

Time to put in some overtime  ..

If Monk can get a tune out of FF then something like the below might be best? 

 

                Westwood 

Odubajo  Iorfa  Borner   Palmer 

            Luongo   Bannan 

    Reach    Forestieri    Harris 

                   Fletcher

There's certainly never a dull moment when he's on the pitch. Booked for diving (when he didn't), fouled and booked for diving, wonder goal, reyt mardy strop. Good and bad but always something.

 

Hope he gets his head right and plays like he used to. Down to Monk to find the right button to push.

The way Monk used Hernandez at Leeds in a number 10 role should be ideal for Forestieri . 

This for  me he's a no 10 in today's game.

Why?

 

Hes awful in a front 2. Tried and failed. 

 

We have won 2 of his last 16 starts.

 

Weve lost 2 of our 3 games playing 442 this season.

 

But you would change things round to make room straightaway?

 

Maybe you should stop spending so much time peeing on chips and do a little research.

We lost 2 of our 3 games playing 4.4.2

We actually lost 4 games in total in the league the other 2 we played 4.3.3 and against 10 men in one of the games.

 

Hes awful in the front two yet he was the top scorer 2 years in a row whilst playing mainly upfront.

 

Injury hit the season after then gets played all over the shop for a season.

 

Im not a huge fan but we still have a quality player on our hands and I hope monk can get the best out of him then it won't be long till your all singing his name again instead of bitching on here. After all I'm sure you would all rather have rhodes upfront...

Absolutely.  I struggle to forgive him for refusing to travel to Norwich - but if he gives us the rest of the season at full tilt then maybe.  Any lengthy injuries, suspensions or silly antics off the pitch then he can go for me.

Time for Fessi to knuckle down as he’s not had a run in the team what seems like years. Sure we’ve been through more managers than he’s had games recently

 

Will be like a new signing and hopefully a good one if Monk can work well with himand get him firing on all cylinders. I’d go to say it’s his last chance with us.  

Id play him off Fletch, maybe just behind him. Fletch works so hard but seems isolated a lot. We play ball for his head but no one there. 

 

Defo start him at Cardiff. Can be such an asset he need some to play.

My favourite Wednesday player in last 2 decades. I hope he comes back like a coiled spring. My only concern is that we often don’t do well with both him and Bannan on the pitch (I don’t have the stats to back this up, so it may be complete ball locks...)

Hopefully we ease off from trying to find Fletcher’s head, it’s too limiting

He’ll have to earn a start like Luongo just has , and everyone else 

 

bit bizarre to be calling for him to be thrown straight in, and there’s not a chance he’s gonna keep Harris out the side , not too sure where Monk will play him but be interesting

Regarding whether he should 'walk straight back in' - he's bound to be short of match fitness, so I expect he'll start on the bench and probably get 20-30 minutes either at Cardiff or in the next game. Then it's up to him to force his way back into the team.

 

Of the potential formations, he can certainly play a role in most of them: 4-4-2 (second striker), 4-2-3-1 (number 10) or 4-3-3 (wide forward). But Harris has been one of our best players so far this season and some of the other players competing for these slots (Murphy, Reach, Nuhiu, Winnall) have their virtues. But competition for places is good. Could certainly have used him at Hull the other night.

Monk will have his own ideas but hopefully he will be battling with Reach and Harris for one of the wide spots in a 433. 

 

Reach has a goal and two assists in our last 3 games. Harris has been one of our best players. I expect FF will come on as sub for one of these v Cardiff or Stoke. Then hopefully his head is on properly and he tries hard to win and keep one of them out of the side. 

 

 

Boring, predictable, conker

If I was manager he'd be straight  in against Cardiff, Joey dropping out

Still the best footballer at the club

As weve all seen time and time again forestieri doesn't have the power/bulk to play in that advanced m/f role. Having him tussleing with opponents midfield players is just a waste of tallent. This is probably why many have him down as a wide player.  As ive said elsewhere he dropped deep under carlos and later jos out of frustration.  He is our most technically gifted player.

If we played him as our most advanced forward he would frighten the life out of most championship defences and he would pull defenders out of position. He would give this team a totally different attacking option, especially against those teams that play a high back line.

To be fair the two games we have lost playing 4-4-2 have both been without Fletcher playing. If we had started any of the games where we have played 4-3-3 with Nuhiu or Winnall in the central position instead of Fletcher then our record with that formation might not be too clever either.

We clinched the result at Huddersfield when we went to 4-4-2 with Fletcher & Winnall as well.

 

 

No we lost v QPR in a 442 with Fletcher-FF up front.

Then at Hull with Fletcher-Nuhiu.

Of course he can't just walk back in. He hasn't done anything of note for us now since 2017, barring a wonder goal at Norwich.

 

He needs to earn his spot, same as anyone else.

 

The question is; does he have the ability and desire any more? I'm not too sure he does.

Sorry Birley but I would say you are totally wrong on the last question. 

His enthusiasm for Wednesday should be obvious.
