Out of interest has anyone seen much of Luton's games this season? If so what were they like going forward and were they balanced? As in did they carry much threat in open play and look decent overall, or were they like flirty wenches with everything to show on top with nothing underneath? Just asking as if we up our tempo and they're all tits and no pants we might just give 'em a good fisting  ;D .
I see nothing wrong with this scenario whatsoever Dan. In fact it's quite the preference.  ;)

After all the hope at the start of the season, we have gone down hill.
This is a real grind out a positive result game for us, just to bring back the hope.

We've had three games. Three.

Granted we've gone out of the League cup and looked poor defending set pieces, but to come out with comments like this after just three games?

We've got a new manager, who wants a different style of play from a team which has had a massive turnover of players; several of whom only made their debuts in that third game.

We had 1 point from 3 games the first time we got promotion, 3 from our first 2 for our second, 3 from 3 in our third (when we finished as Champions), and matched our current 4 from 2 in our last promotion.

These things aren't done and dusted after 1 week of the season, and it's far from hopeless.

               Johnstone

Ferguson Ajay Bartley Gibbs

             Livermore

Phillips  Sawyers  Krovinovic Edwards

              Zohore


I wouldnt start with Austin. He looked like he was blowing out of his backside after half hour on Tuesday.

I can only see problems if we persist with zonal marking and not marking your own man.

I dont know how zonal marking can possibly be better than picking up your own allocated player, but what do I know :-\

I've never understood it either and I'm not convinced it has ever worked properly at higher levels.

Space has never scored a goal. Don't mark it. To me it's about as obvious as obvious gets.

Absolutely, Gareth McAuley picking up a man or GM marking the penalty spot, no contest IMO

I really hope that what a fair few have been saying on this forum is true and GJ was the principal agent of our woes last season and is hopeless at coaching a defence and we will beat them this Saturday.  Although we seem to have been a tad brittle at set pieces so far this season.

Would be great to score a few here and show real intent.

7 points from 3 league games with a new manager and squad overhaul would be fantastic IMO.

I would go with:

                 Johnstone

Ferguson   Ajayi    Bartley    Gibbs

                  Livermore

              Sawyers Kroninovic

Phillips           Austin           Perreira

I'm aware Austin is not up for playing 90 mins but hopefully he can get us into the lead and we can then take him off after 55/60 and give Zohore a chance to play without too much pressure. Hopefully a goal or two will boost his confidence.

Luton's defence is there to be crushed and I'm sure Slaven will get us flying out the blocks.

It's funny how Darren Moore takes none of the blame when he was the manager that either let Jones run with it or didn't have a clue himself.. Either way one is manager in the championship and the other is in lge 1. All those thinking it will be a push over tomorrow Luton have goals in them we dont. i expect 2-1 luton

They have scored 1 more goal than us and let in 3 more.

I don't think it will be a pushover by any means but I think we'll win 2-0.

Very brave predicting a clean sheet for us given our circus act defending. Be interesting to see the team news.

I think (hope!) that they will have been working on defending set pieces this week during training. I would expect it to be Ferguson, Ajayi, Bartley and Gibbs at the back.

My main memories of Luton. Going into the away end above the neighbours' back gardens with panoramic views into kitchen windows. (Don't know how Luton planning authority dealt with any residents complaints about loss of privacy).
And... I've visited Luton 3 times in my life. And had my car broken into on 2 of those visits.

Another ground to tick off an ever shrinking list. With the rising cost of away days I might start doing a few random Non League fixtures. If Sutton Coldfield Town have still got their little band playing at games they can pretty much forget it though  ;D .

I think we will be better away from home, same as last season. Teams will come to defend at the Hawthorns in the hope of nicking a point or 3 but they will have to be more positive, which should allow our midfield and forwards to hit them on the break.
Krovinovic to score in a 3-1 win.

Think there will be goals in this one - don’t trust either defence (ours vulnerable at set pieces and theirs just, errrrr, vulnerable)

I’d go 4231 with the usual back 4, then I’d be inclined to play Sawyers and Krovinovic as a slightly more mobile midfield pairing, with Phillips, Pereira and Edwards behind Austin. Would always want to see two of our front four pressing them on goal kicks - assuming GJ will have them playing out from the back.
