Think it needs to be more 4-3-3 as with a 2 we always get outplayed and too easy to play through.

 

Murphy and Foriesteri either side of Wickham

 


Who’s your midfield 3?

Whoever sanctioned that signing wants sacking.


I bet if you asked DC he would say that Owlstalk sanctioned the signing a’la Jordan Rhodes.

We can’t play 2 in midfield without Hutch or Luongo so has to go with a 3.

While obviously limited Joey does ok as the holding player in a 3.

Hutchinson and Luongo are 2 of. This is the problem Monk has made This formation unplayable as we don’t have the central midfielders.

Front 2 of Forestieri and Wickham is 100 percent  right.

 

Two wingers which would be Murphy and Harris is 100 percent right.

 

Problem is Bannan isn’t a CM and playing very poor, Lee isn’t the player he was. Pelupessy simply isn’t good enough. Luongo is injured and Hutchinson is exiled. We have no CM players !! Where the game is won and lost. Doesn’t really matter if we play a two or a three we always get overrun.

I know we can’t play this today, but our team with a Fletcher-Rhodes partnership is proven to be unbelievably prolific.

 

The option was cruelly taken from Monk after we’d scored 7 goals in 198 minutes with this duo up front.
 

I hope he spotted how prolific we were, and that we see this partnership rekindled as soon as possible, maybe on Wednesday v Charlton or Saturday v Derby.

And Luongo’s probably been injured for more games than he’s been available.

 

I prefer 4-3-3 but 4-4-2 was working quite well before Christmas when Hutchinson and Fletcher were playing.


And in reply to Holmowl, Rhodes can only play in a 4-4-2

Certainly he’s best in a 442, alongside Fletcher.

 

Hopeless as the front man of a 433/451.

Luongo rather than Hutch also worked really well in 442 before Christmas.

I'd always go Bannan Hutchinson Luongo.

 

But seeing as though Hutchinson has been banished and Luongo can never stay fit.

 

Today I'd go Bannan Lee Hunt.

 

Anyone but Pelupessy.

Agree it was working and it worked last year when Hutchinson and Bannan were playing in it under Bruce but they (especially Hutch) we’re playing much higher up the park. I think Monk is the the problem he’s too negative

Without Hutchinson or Luongo we look lightweight in central midfield whatever formation we play

Just to add balance...

 

Forest away 

442

CM Luongo Bannan

 

Charlton away

442

CM for 70 mins Hutch Bannan 1-1

CM for 20 mins Luongo Bannan finished 3-1

 

Boro away

442

CM for 40 mins Hutch-Bannan 4-1

CM for 50 mins Luongo Bannan finished 4-1

 

My point is that 442 can work fine, and Hutch is good but far from pivotal.

Honesty would rather one of the young lads play than Pessy. At least they might be full of energy and want to impress. Birmingham have got that young midfielder in their team, apparently worth millions. Let’s give a youngster or 2 of ours a chance. Things aren’t working with the current players. Anything is worth a try.

Potential I think.  Give him time to adjust to our game and he could come good.

 

One for next season I think, not what we need right now. Myrphy looks a better option at present but Da Cruz could be one for the future. I keep seeing ability in his play but he seems to be playing a different game to the rest of the team.

Hunt didn't look up to the defensive side of the game at this level. He's got potential but he needs to be stronger. Give him time and he might turn out ok.

 

Just not the right time to introduce him.
