Changes expected vs Brighton - Your Team

I dont blame Wednesday as 95% of side do it but do find it disappointing that sides dont really take FA Cup seriously.
Sounding like an old fart but 3rd round cup weekend used to be one of the most exciting weekends of the season.

 

Clubs like Brighton should take it serious not as if they are ever going to realistically compete for the league title.  

 

Find it strange that clubs at all level dismiss it so easily nowadays.  

 

Do think the suits have micro managed the competition to devalue it so fans just concentrate on the league.  Very sad.

The club need to consider the supporters.

There will be upwards of 2400 travelling to the game travelling goodness knows how many hours and miles.

Are they just going to see 11 men in Blue and White shirts because they are Wednesday supporters. I doubt it. They will be hoping for a win. 

The club need to respect this and ensure a team capable of winning is sent out . Brighton will no doubt send out at least half a reserve side so there is a better chance of winning than if the 1st team were played.

Who knows there might be a money spinning game against a premiership side in the next round.

Might even be the blunts at home. How will everybody feel if we lost to Brighton having sent a reserve squad and then they drew the blunts at home.

Bloody hell think we've touched a nerve, didn't think they'd still care about a Playoff Semi Final from almost 4 years ago... 

 

That said, paste this on the dressing room wall and let's hammer the feckers. Would love to spend 90 minutes winding their fans up.

Make all the precious, overpaid lazy fekkers that got 3 points out of 12 over Xmas & the New Year start this game & earn some respect by showing the same commitment as the fans.

Dropping them gives them a rest they don't deserve.

As much as I can get behind the whole Wednesday massive club theme, I do have a small voice at the back of my mind that the vast majority of the fans will just be decent football mad people like the rest of us, and they have a half batshit owner who has decided to play with fire chasing the PL dream. They are probably in a downbeat mood because they have the incompetent EFL clowns working out their punishment for a blatantly odd piece of financial accounting. Would put a dampener on the season if you knew it doesn’t really matter how well you do, you’re likely getting a points deduction that will take you below the top six. Plus they’ve lost a few on the bounce. You know what we are like when that happens!

I feel they lost their best chance a few years ago and will need some serious surgery. They don’t have a coherent, joined up approach to running a club. They haven’t aligned their academy, loans and first team up. They just hire in mercenaries and get hammered. Must hurt to look at the Blades squad and how they are dying for each other. Some of the WEDNESDAY players look like they don’t give a poo. I feel for the fans, but since this is the approach for most clubs, I only have so much empathy to spare them.

                           Dawson 

 

Odubajo       Iorfa          Lees              Fox

 

Murphy       Luongo       Lee             Harris

 

                 Fletcher     Forestieri 

 

We need a strong line up or it could be embarrassing. Changes inevitable after a busy festive schedule but losing 4 on the bounce won't do anything for team confidence.

I’d make all the fairies, slackers and wage  stealers start with the under 23 lads. The rest can have the weekend off

This match comes at a bad time but I'd play all the same slack ass, over paid players that let us down over Xmas.

I guess changes to the team are inevitable for this fixture.  Because the cup isn't our priority.

 

We are so close to the playoffs, so the league has to be our focus.

 

Also I'm sure there are players that need a period of recovery after playing a lot of football over the xmas period.

 

I just hope we keep the number of team changes down to a sensible level (a maximum of 4 I'd say).

You've changed your tune @Kagoshimaowl

 

This was your reaction last month when I suggested 3-5-2 would be a good option to consider:

 

On ‎12‎/‎12‎/‎2019 at 02:01, Kagoshimaowl said:

Absolutely ridiculous. We don’t have ANY wing backs in the squad and only Reach could do any sort of job there. And don’t suggest Harris because that would take away all of his qualities. He can’t defend at all. 

 

On ‎12‎/‎12‎/‎2019 at 03:41, Kagoshimaowl said:

Fox, Lee and Iorfa have never been wing backs. Penney is not even at the club and Odubajo is a liability. Then Reach can play the role but he’s poor defensively. Also, you have to bench Harris or play him in an unfamiliar role. As I said, ridiculous. Glad you aren’t our manager!

 

:tango:

 

For what it's worth, I think the formation that @Ash77 has suggested would work fine and get the best out of some of our better players.

Nope it goes back longer than 2016 when a few Brighton fans signed up and got a bit precious. Think we beat them in the subsequent game 1-0. They took the massive joke badly for some reason. But they do have a history of creating rivalries with teams miles away. Like Palace

Firey Jack, that brings back memories!

 

Maybe a liberal application to the jockstrap of some of our players will get them running around a bit more!!

Only changes I expect are Odubajo in, Borner and Iorfa at the back. Luongo in midfield. Murphy down one of the flanks and Fletcher and Rhodes upfront. If some kids are involved, it’ll probably be from the bench?

Have seen Brighton a couple of times on tv.

Good footballing side. Pass through midfield.

Obviously they won’t play their best eleven either but feel we need 3 in central midfield for this.
