  • Give this team a go Steve.....

    Lumley
    Rangel BFG Lynch Bidwell
    Cousins Cameron
    Wszolek Eze BOS
    Wells.

    Try it. Your team isn't really cutting it.

    Against Norwich we were totally ineffective with the way he set the team up and who played. Width and pace were two key issues that he needed to address, but didn't. For me, despite having to play in the harrowing early season games, Kakay should be the right back. With his pace linking up with Wszolek, we would have had the beating of the Norwich midfield on the right, and a supply for the forwards that just wasn't there on Saturday (as Kakay can deliver a great cross as well).

    Baptiste at RB was bizarre. He's a decent defender at CB, but he has no pace. Scowen/Freeman/Luongo/Eze was a no-width midfield with too many similar players. Cousins has already showed that he should start, so why he didn't is another mystery. The two forwards weren't linking up either and with no service, it was a waste. Luongo looks like he needs a break. I'd have Freeman over BOS to start for the creativity he offers, and see how it develops during the game. BOS is a good option off the bench.

    At home, I'd tweak your team like this:

    Lumley
    Kakay BFG Lynch Bidwell
    Cousins, Cameron
    Wszolek Eze Freeman
    Wells

    Subs BOS, Luongo, Scowen, Hamed, Smith, Smyth, Rangel

      Bang on their money, Hubs. Freeman is the only one of the Three Musketeers doing the business at the moment.

        Better have a keeper on the bench, or is Ingram that bad?

              Not me, mate. Being saying we should change it for a long, long time. Bolton and Millwall didn't cut it for me.

                I know itís all about opinions , but cousins has been slated for 2 years and now people want him as a starter . If eze gets left out everyone would slaughter McLaren as heís our best player . Rangel has been good so far yet people want Kakay in .I think he wants to play 4 4 2 but how do you accommodate eze and Freeman into that .

                    Iím surprised at Steve going 442 as he always been 433 manager , Iím wondering if furlong and Cameron being fit will see us go that way , I actually think wells would be very good as a right sided forward

                      Yeah McLarens interview after the game was weird .He said we were unlucky, I thought we were never in it and were totally outplayed and should have lost by more.

                        Just one thing nagging me tho......whoever watched Norwich would be aware that the left wing back gets forward at every opportunity and is certainly a decent player...I know the Rangel injury happened late in the day,but surely Cousins (or Kakay were the obvious replacement....and as Eze didnít track back and help Baptiste,we were caught out time after time.....a shame because all the defenders done well yesterday...with no help from our non-existent midfield.....!

                          Strangest thing was him saying them having 73 percent of the possession didn't matter because he was all in front of us. Better that behind, sure, but no one can be happy with 27 percent of possession at home. Entirely the fault of the four he strung across the middle.

                            It`s a worry if we cannot play Hemed and Wells together. We need them both.

                              I think I said on the match thread before the game that the changes in line up could only be explained in terms of containment, ie he was picking that side to play against Norwich having done his homework.

                              He basically sent out a midfield tasked with covering the rear. Problem was, we weren't playing Barcelona. It was an extraordinarily unambitious selection.

                              On the plus side, he may have learned something.
