    I think al Bangura would do a good job in midfield.

    Jay, al bang bang and damian in midfied.

    We need to stifle their midfield, their creativity - both Jay and Al bang bang can do that. The back is solid and Jay can always revert to CB and take Malky off it it doesn't work out. Jay can win ariel battles in midfield and would get stuck in as much as Gav.

    A workman must use his best equipment - jay is a must in the side. so give him a go in midfield. Al bang bang and him will take no prisoners.

    Can always bring springy on for Malky and revert back to the normal.

    Gavin will be a big miss in midfield.

    I'd keep the same team as Monday night, except Al in for Gav, maybe Spring in for Francis because he has played with Al more regularly.

    As for the captain, my money is on Jay because of what Aidy said about him being a future captain for the club. His determination is brilliant, never gives up and in the final moments on Mon, he was urging the players on as a Captain should do.

    If Malky starts I except he will be captain, as you can see, I would give it to Jordan, as I think he would respond well to the responsibility, but I think it may well be Francis.

    :eek: :eek: hopefully malky won't start and francis will never be given captaincy. DEMERIT for captain
  19. albangura9

    albangura9 Squad Player

    good lineup, however i would not give jordan the captaincy. Shittu or Demerit are both vocally , mentally and physically strong, so i'd prefer either of them.

    ha Jordon... I'm sure you can't possibly be serious?
  21. wfc4ever

    wfc4ever First Team Captain

    Against Newcastle is was Jay if I remember right which surprised me actually.

    Will Stewart play or do we reckon Powell might come back in.
  22. WatfordÉire

    WatfordÉire Squad Player

    definatley stewart. powell is experienced but is too slow for the prem now.
  23. lowerrous

    lowerrous Squad Player

    Shittu was QPR's captain last year wasn't he? I'd have him as captain over DeMerit; DeMerit can be a bit shaky and all over the place at times.

    Give it to shittu after the way he played against man city , he probably deserves it . It may get an extra 10% out of him
  25. WatfordÉire

    that would make 468%;D
  26. Just an alteration to my origianl line up, I forgot about Powell, and I would put him on the bench instead of Doyley, just incase we need to steady the ship.

    However, if Aidy were to start with him, he might be made Captain?
  27. berkshirehorn

    berkshirehorn presumably I upset/disappointed someone

    Can't believe Paddy would play Malkie after his nightmare against Sheff U

    Jay for captain, big opportunity for Francis to finally show us why he cost so much.

    Evasive Requiescat in pace

    That is the team I would go for.

    LOL berkshire -on that basis we should play our reserve team - they were all conference level that night.

    We cannot afford to concede a goal. I'm not saying we shouldn't attack, but our midfield will be brushed aside without Gav - Jay would tackle and can win headers. Al bang bang can pick up the loose tidings. The front will still have pace with hammer and ash and Jordan and james can both overlap and jay can cover for them knowing the centre is coverd with Dan and Malky.

    Also corners and set peieces we can send Jay, Malky and Dan up along with hendo is some awesome height and strength. We get a lot of corners per game.

    Can't afford to concede tomorrow as we are likely to manage one goal at the most. so 1-0 and three points will do me, though i'm having £5 on 5-2 to the orns :)

    blimey - what odds have you got for that?

    if reading play lita and doyle together they'll run malkie ragged. i agree we mustn't concede obviously but we need jays speed in the back four more than we need his strength in the middle.

    Maybe, just maybe Francis will finally turn up.
  31. PaddingtonsYellowArmy

    too much of a risk relying on Damian without Gav by his side.

    We have to stop them playing.

    Running malky ragged is why al bang bang is there to cover and challenge and force errors . Remember that although Malky is slow his experiance is vast and one game doesn't make him a shyte player.

    I think 5-2 is 400/1 with paddy power will confirm later.
  32. Berkohorn

    Berkohorn Reservist

    Too much of a risk playing Malky and Danny - too slow.If Kitson had been playing (he's out for a month plus) then it might have worked but Doyle and Lita would run rings around these two.

    I don't think Jay is doing fantastically well but we need his extra pace at the back. Plus the fact that he has no idea of positioning in midfield.

    I wouldn't rule out Jordan playing midfield with Powell at LB.

    Unfortunately I still dont see us scoring so a boring 0-0 on the cards.
  33. WatfordÉire

    jay and shi2 at the back. no room for the slow (malky and powell). stewart left back and bangura to take mahons place. no other changes
  34. PaddingtonsYellowArmy

    PaddingtonsYellowArmy First Team Captain

    We will lose 3-0 at least in that case.

    Powell is not slow and is very very fit. Maybe he could play left midfield as he is more of a tackler than Jordan.
  35. WatfordÉire

    WatfordÉire Squad Player

    yes he is fit but so is everyone in the prem. he was made a fool at some occasions during the sheff match. yes he is experienced but i'd prefer stewart. if we play stewart he will find some form and become consistent.

    also if powell's a 'better tackler' wouldn't you put him left back not midfield?
