You shouldn’t change a winning team. The team that beat Leeds earns the right to go again.

I agree. But will Darren?

I think we may well see Gayle back in for HRK and possibly Barry in for Morrison, he may also  bring Bartley in as centre half.

I can see why we would play Gayle, HRK had a great last game, but Gayle is better, Barry for Morrison is also not unreasonable (though I would stick with Morrison to start).  I would be disappointed if we bring Bartley back in.  I am not convinced he has the skill we need in defence.  I have not seen him tackle well and his passing is woeful.  Position wise I am also unconvinced.

If the changes go beyond Gayle for HRK then I will give up with Darren.

Bartley and Brunt should be nowhere near the starting XI

You cant change a winning team (many of said it was our best performance of the season) to drop anyone after that wouldn't be fair in all honesty.

If everyone is fit and ready then the 11 against Leeds have earned themselves another game together.

The team should be kept the same. They earned the shirt for the next game can they keep it? Long term I guess Gayle will come in for Rodriguez who has had far more poor games than good ones- (despite being better v Leeds) other thing to consider is is it likely that HRK can continue where he left of? Longer term would sako or Burke leko etc be an option in the role of wing forward?

Plenty of chance to utilise squad when the games come thick and fast. Livermore and Dawson are both a card away from suspension so changes will come about at some point.

Having Barry on bench to bring on for Morrison when he tires to control game is fine with me. I would much rather him get 10-20 minutes than be starting.

HRK did a fairly good holdup job against Leeds but the long balls went out to him on the wing where they had relatively short full backs.
However, you can't change a winning side I think it must be 4-3-3 with last week's line-up.
It's the subbing where the smart tactics lie.  I would swap Hoolahan for Morrison if the latter tires (sort of like for like?) and Gayle for whoever isn't performing at 55-60 minutes.

I wouldn't use Hoolahan at all. I think he is the one player that doesn't really fit into this system. If we need to replace Morrison, Barry is the obvious answer. To be honest though I expect DM will replace Morrison with Brunt from the start.

See Hull 3/11/18  :), in fairness no game is a roll over plus they have a new manager.

Pity this is on a Friday - no chance of getting time off from work unfortunately.

Wonder how many we will take ?

Well I am going to Ipswich, largely on the strength of the last display, but after reading Graeme Jones in the Express & Star tonight I despair.

I mean i can see his point, that teams will snuff out your tactics if you're too predictable. He doesnt mention he will go back to how it was against the likes of wigan or hull either...

So, could his interview be an elaborate smokescreen to confuse Ipswich ?

I would be surprised to see us revert back to 3-5-2 tomorrow night, unless any injuries dictate that.

I expect to see the same 11 against Leeds and a similar set up, with abit more onus on getting on the front foot.

Early goal and its game over.

 I think tomorrow’s become a big game for us we need to start building some momentum to put a good run together with the games we have coming up. Playing Friday gives us a good chance to put pressure on the teams above especially as Norwich go away to Swansea & Borough away to Brentford.

Looking forward to this after the Leeds game. Just praying that we do not revert to 5 at the back.
