Im not a big fan of predicting team threads

Too many crackpot ideas about, id try this and id try that, but rarely they do throw up some sense

This has so much logic, its almost wasted on a thread like this

I dont think thomasson is the right choice but its probably toss up him or sheehan

Id be very surprised if thats not the selection...but if its not, i stand by evatts choice

If IE said he was playing Baptiste and Gilks up top I’d trust him

One of the things Evatt said last season we can change formations and its horses for courses

Play the same formation as Saturday with the same team........Same outcome

I would like us for this game at the least go traditional 442 Every player we have was brought up on that system so no great shock. Flat back 4 with Baptiste at right back

Midfield 4 of Isgrove mj lee/sarcevic Thomason on the left and Doyle Bakayoko up top

Not a chance in hell he will go that but i can hope

Saturday we played. Sunday was their day off Monday they trained and you want them to adopt a new formation with a centre mid on the left, in one training session after a year of playing another formation 

@Casino you were right about this thread

My main concern is whether Sarce is really fit to play? If he was carrying a knock to start on Saturday, then got another crack on it, will he really be fit enough in 3 days? I accept we’re light already but maybe either Sheehan or Fonz should play the No10 and bring Sarce on only if needed?

Is it only me that just lets the manager pick the team and not try and second guess it? There’s a good reason I don’t work in football as a career alongside the majority 😎

League form.

We haven’t scored in 6 of our last 9.

Conceded first in 7 of those and in 10 of our 13 league games so far.

Lost 4 of our last 6.

Anyway, brekky in Spoons and on the sauce 🍺🍺.

And I think we will win today…..

I believe so. Just hope it’s a covered stand.

Luckily southerly wind will be blowing onto the side screen of the corner you ate on, so if you should all be able to get far enough back to be out of rain.

Lads and lasses who are there today, fantastic! Wish I could join you. Keep the posts (and pics) coming, love following what’s going on, on far flung away destinations mid-week. 👏

I’m one who likes a pre-match first 11 prediction. But for me it needs to be done and discussed on the proviso that at the end of the day IE knows best.

Regardless of my predictions and thoughts, I’ll always look in anticipation at the side an hour before kick off and understand there will be a rationale behind the side he picks, quite often one which won’t be obvious or explained to us.

I must admit the crazy suggestions that suggest wholesale omissions and formation changes, then when he doesn’t do it come on and moan make me smile.

I get a bit more angry when during and post match (especially when we are losing or after a defeat) folk then pretend (or even worse believe!) they know better.

Brockbank for me stays at right back with Isgrove in front of him. I’m torn on Baptiste or Aimson, Baptiste when he has played, has looked good positionally, in possession and tackling/intercepting but he does lack pace and that has been noticeable this season, so I wouldn’t have him at right back.

I enjoy doing it. I also enjoy seeing peoples viewpoints before and after a game there’s so much going on you’ll miss stuff and I enjoy that side of seeing it from different angles it’s what makes the discussions on here so interesting.

Yep. No harm at all, it is a forum after all.

Probably a bit more coherent than when discussed in the boozer after a few ales!

Thomason is all left foot he started out as left back he is comfortable all down the left hand side.....Adapt ...really they have to a man played 442 most of there lives.

Its all about opinions and mine is we go same system same result

I am not saying go 442 for any longer than we have to, but we currently do not have the personal to play  4231....If nothing else it will give Doyle the help he needs.

And it would also send Lowe a curveball at our team selection

nope i wont come on here and moan Evatt knows best and he gets paid to select the team i do not.

Back him whatever team he sends out.....Just my view on a forum that has  no relevance what so ever

If he goes 4231 tonight and we win i will be delighted and chuffed to be proven wrong

Agree with Baptiste lacking pace and i have to agree with you now on him over Brocky

We all know Isgrove is the better option wide over Bakayoko, Brocky will get the protection that was lacking Saturday

Whatever the formation is, Thomason would lend more defensive capability to it. Be that in front of a full back, or inside as a central midfielder. He also passed the ball well.

He probably won't score goals like Sarc though, and dribble like Dapo.

Afolayan apparently started as a central striker, so could imagine him playing behind Doyle, in a free role to run at defenders with the ball.

The reason I think IE doesn’t play 442 is because of the triangular passing he implements

Everyone gets the ball and has an angle for a player, that is taken away when it’s two banks of 4

Plus we’ve done alright with that formation so same system same result doesn’t make sense.
