We do , not convinced Shan does .
4 or 5 at the back ? . All over the shop mate.


I say that then the next poster plucks Montero out of the air and shuffles Rodriguez back out wide.


We're going to play 352.


Johnstone


Dawson
Bartley
Hegazi


Holgate
Phillips
Brunt
Johansen
Gibbs


Rodriguez
Gayle


I just pray Livermore isn't fit.

We've got no chance.  These players haven't performed all season and there's no sign of us kicking in to gear any time soon.

Relieved Boro and Pulis are not part of it. I just fancy us more in an open game than in a typical Pulis game. Thats assuming we get past Villa.

Don't have a clue what out best formation is, Personal, Players have been chopped and changed, Like it's press randomise and go from there.

How we don't have a manger is laughable, And the players are running the show it's evident.

Villa will spank us, We all know and sense it. They had numerous chances against us at home, And Grealish was't playing the 2nd game.

Jenkins needs to answer for alot. Roll on the massive clearance in the summer.

Can't see us beating the Vile you need to do what Leeds did and put someone on Grealish we just don't have anyone who can do what Kalvin Phillips did.

The only bite we have is Livermore , that said I wouldn't be surprised to see Harper.

I'd say Harper but the mans made his mind up and is elsewhere, Maybe Field could do the job, Definitely not Livermore though.

Due to Harper's poor attitude I think I'd rather see Livermore ahead of him. Can't believe I've had to type that.

Definitely not Harper he switches off too much, not disciplined enough for that role.

Sam Field marked Erikson out of it away at Spurs last season , worth a look.

Just can't see the ball winner out of Brunt, Phillips and Johansen.
Brunt can't tackle and shouldn't. Phillips is big and quick so you think he would have it in him but he doesn't. Johansen is the best of the 3 at it but wouldn't describe him as such

Dont get the fascination with field, dont think ive really seen him do anything, bar goal at bolton. Plays too safe, lighweight, league 1 player

Field yes I'd overlooked him. He would be ahead of Harper and Livermore for me anyways.

I'd be going 4-5-1 against Villa. Only chance we have is to stifle them. We have to have a holding player against Grealish. Field is the only one who can do that.

Villa will be licking their lips, and will reckon they can finish this as a contest at their place.

Think Appleton should take over as head coach as Shan is clearly out of his depth, Bartley as captain Jimmy really, f ing another clueless coach.

Yes. He can tackle and his area coverage is larger than the others.
But he won't be included in the match-day squad after Livermore and Brunt return.

Difficult to think we'll go up on today's showing.

One thing that irked me this afternoon, but wasn't in any way surprising, was what happens when we're under the pump and the other team has momentum and a spell of forward thrust. We concede and down tools and we're overrun. We were dogs**t once they made it 2-1.

Happened against Derby at home and today. Boro' at home. Leeds away. Bristol City away. Happened against Bristol City at home as well (though we did win 4-2). I'd argue that is has happened many more times than that against sides of lesser quality who haven't capitalised on the chances they create/are gifted.

We are a patchy side. We can score and create. We also concede spells of dominance in games and that has been a theme of the season throughout.

Obviously would LOVE to see us go up but can't help but think we'll be crap for 25 minutes somewhere along the line and that'll do for us.

https://www.wba.co.uk/news/2019/may/play-offs-away-leg-ticket-details/

2000 tickets for the away leg and Matt Wilson has tweeted saying we will only sell 2000 tickets to villa fans

Does that mean we will move the void over and sell more tickets to home fans?

Can 2000 even be segregated? Thought it was 1800 max

all down to having no control what so ever in midfield and its been criminal by those in charge that they haven't addressed this problem. Jenkins and Dowling should be shown the door as they are not the people to take club forward as for lying he needs to show some sort of interest in club or he might as well say goodbye to his investment.

HRK has given us a real problem. Even if he's not worthy of a starting place, we can't be going into games with ony 2 regular strikers in the squad. Over 90 minutes you've got the fatigue factor, and at Wembley it could be over 120 minutes.

Is rather play a goalkeeper or a full back or a center half or a defensive midfielder etc etc then robson Kanu up front

If we give them 2000 the segregation area will be larger. They cannot divide the concourse in this way.


All restricting the away allocation in this way will do is reduce the capacity of the ground.
