So they do the high press, are playing well, and have former Albion youngsters Roofe and Roberts who were never given a chance by the club.

Yeah, we all know how this one's going to go.

I would  give Bartley a chance but in a flat back four.Sometimes players play out of their skins against former clubs.

might not be a comment many would agree with but I'm starting to think none of our players (including Bartley) are necessary poor players but that quite often they are uncomfortable in particular positions or systems. I have always rated Hegazi and Dawson highly in previous seasons and I'm sure that Bartley is a more than adequate Championship defender playing in a formation that he's used to.

 >:(  0-3 if we revert to a 4-4-2-1 System. 0-6 if we play 3 at the back with the over 35's in midfield.
I am not saying anymore. I will leave this call to Big Dave....who I really want to see succeed. ;)

Whatever the system it's difficult to see us picking up points in this game.
0-2

Think the ref will have something to say if we play 4-4-2-1.

Whatever the score , we need a performance from the team first and foremost the same passion, desire, never say die attitude that we showed in the games against Man Utd, Liverpool, Spurs and Newcastle last season. Oh and some creativity.

Bartley played as part of a back four in our first 3 games and looked poor then too as did Hegazi.

It's not the formation that's the issue it's the players, Hegazi has carried on his poor form from the World Cup, Dawson has looked uninterested the last couple of games, Adabarioyo has looked okay at times but isn't played consistently enough, Mears has looked terrible as a wing back but we've not seen him play in his actual position as a Right back.Townsend's been hit and miss, mostly hit though but only plays if Gibbs is not fit.  Out of all the defenders only Gibbs has been mostly good.

The only thing that can be guaranteed is that our manager will be tactically outclassed as ever, whether our superior players can get a result in spite of him remains to be seen.

Back to basics, let defenders defend and attackers attack.

Johnstone

Dawson
Hegazi
Tosin
Gibbs / Townsend

Barry
Morrison/Livermore

Phillips
Barnes
Sako/Rodriguez

Gayle/Rodriguez

Gives us the option to remain solid at the back, 2 'holding' players who can look to control the game, letting the 3 infront of them support the striker and look to create some chances.

If we show signs of learning from the last couple of weeks, we might get a draw or sneak a win.

If we go out and play exactly the same tactics and formation, they'll smash us like Derby did.

Often when you are on a bad run a dramatic change can get you out of it be it a tactical or personnel change - anyone remember Hodgson bringing in Meite for a game at Stoke away? With that in mind, I think I would switch to a back 4 this weekend.

Johnstone

Dawson
Bartley
Hegazi
Gibbs

Morrison
Livermore

Phillips
Hoolahan
Barnes

Gayle

Myhill, Mears, Field, Sako, Rodriguez, Burke, Robson-Kanu

Put names of all fit squad members in a hat and draw them out. Oh by the way miss out Dawson ,Hegazi, Bartley, Mears, Brunt, Hoolahan, Morrison, Robson-Kanu, Rodriguez, and Barry
and try something like this
                                             Johnstone
    Edwards                 Tosin              Field            Gibbs
                   
Phillips              Livermore               Harper                    Sako
                                           Barnes

                                           Gayle

Subs Myhill, Burke, Townsend, Howkins and Leko + 1 volunteer from each of Smethwick and Brummie


Sounds a bit extreme you say?  Well can they really do any worse, even collectively, than those left out?
Who the bloody hell has been responsible for assembling that lot and believing that they are the basis for a team capable of getting us back into the Prem ?   >:( :-[ :'(
