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

Then at Hull with Fletcher-Nuhiu.

 

The QPR game was a poor performance but under a different manager who to be fair, is not cut out to manage at this level at this time.

 

Fletcher did not play at Hull and that was very evident.

Sorry Nuhiu-Winnal.

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.

 

I beg to differ....Reach needs some time out.  He's had one decent game this season so far, was woeful today.  Personally, next game would have Harris (on the right) and FF in, either side of Fletch.

We've started four games with a Reach-Fletcher-Harris front three.

 

Reading, Fulham, Boro (+ Nuhiu) Wigan - 3 wins, 1 draw.

 

Since the start of last season we’ve started 16 games with FF, and won 2.

 

Why would you change Reach-Fletcher-Harris to make room for FF?

So is OK and 4-4-2 counts as a win in your debate when you want to use it to demonstrate a front 3 including Reach, Fletcher and Harris? Surely Forestieri would be an opition instead of Nuhiu in that regard?

 

I agree with you in that he shouldn't go straight back into the side though. We are doing well by and large with 4-3-3 and Forestieri should have to wait his chance.

Monk seems not to be stuck on one formation though and likes the 4-4-2 at times. I am confident we would have faired better at Hull had Fletcher been one of the front two.

Let’s just see if he can find someone to cover his shift at the bar before getting carried away over whether he’ll play against Cardiff.

Potential match winner,obvious goal threat great to have him back and a headache for Monk as to how to utilise his obvious quality,add to that Murphys looked much better his last two cameos and things look a little brighter

One thing for sure, he can't just walk back into the team. What sort of message would that send out to rest of the boys?

 

He needs to earn his spot in the squad, and I have serious doubts he will do that actually. Unless he realises that he needs too, to get a new contract either here or elsewhere this summer 

It's a squad game though, over the course of the season we'll have to make changes. Rotation isn't a bad thing if done correctly.

I can’t agree more with this! 433 we look far better team, I get from time to time we’ll identify a weakness In the opposition that requires a tweak to exploit but other than let’s keep doing what’s obviously working. 
 

That said, none of our players (exception of Reach and Lee in his prime) are capable of playing 40 plus games a season, so there will be plenty of opportunities to swap and change. If only Winnal/Rhodes/Nuhiu were in better form to share the fletcher role a bit. 
 

Fessi & Harris sharing 90 minutes is a terrifying thought for any championship full back, Reach and Murphy the same. It also allows us to really go for it, chase, work their nads off for 60 minutes knowing that we’ve got fantastic replacements chomping at the bit to get on.

Wouldn't it be the same message as any other player coming back after a ban ?

 

How do you know hes not already earned a place in the squad ?

FF has scored one goal against Norwich in two years and that’s it. Strange decision to change a team which has picked up 10 points out of 15 to immediately accommodate him.

He’s scored more than that against Norwich never mind in total over the last two years. Must be 10 or 11?

Purely because Reach needs a break.  By his own admission, he's had a poor season.  Apart from Boro, it's not been up to his usual standards.  Wigan was especially bad...@Holmowl...it's all well and good to quote games we've won with him in the side, but we've carried him at times.

 

We (and Monk) want to breed a club that gives chances to benched/squad players, when someone in their position is playing badly.  So if we're trying something else at RW, I'd prefer to see FF rather than Murphy, who again...has not exactly pulled up any trees.  

 

I really rate Reach, and really hope this break will do him some good...but I think dropping him for a game or two will really fire him up and we need the likes of him, Harris and FF (our only creative players, bar Bannans lasers) to be super sharp to have any chance of success this season.

I'd like to see 4-4-1 with Nando having a free role. Give him the freedom and he will find the space to seriously upset defences.

Time for the little fella to remind everyone what a great player he can be. Whatever is next for him career wise he needs to turn it on this season.

Just think if we can get him playing like in Carlos first season that will be the difference between auto and play offs with his goals, cant see it happening tho and he will be on the bench most games

Slightly off topic but he was sat in his car in the car park after the game. People were trying to get a photo of him with their kids and a steward was saying they couldn’t.

 

Fessi waved him aside and said it was ok, everyone can have a picture.

 

Top man

Earned his £30k a week then. WTF:

Towards the end Carlos hardly picked him. Neither did Jos or Bullen. 

 

The myth continues.
