You may be correct, Paterson certainly owes us a performance that is for sure, however the wider issue for me is this last season all over again, lose 2 right backs and only sign one, this season lose 2 centre backs and only sign one, I would have thought that there should be a lesson in there somewhere.

Agreed - seems crazy to be in the position of having 2 centre backs out already and having to play a makeshift CB in a RB that's not in great form.

Made crazier by last season and the failed shoe horning of several different options at right back, it is unprofessional, who will be next at CB my guess is Pack, maybe Smith or of course it might be a way of keeping Paterson on the team sheet.

Presumably weve benched the out n out wingers as we're highly unlikely to be beating their centre backs in the air. And so replaced them with players who have a trick or two and like to cut inside 

It makes sense - especially if we do play 3 across the middle - but we will see if it works in practice. My worry is whether we have enough pace and creatively. That and of course the defence...

Agree

As @Alessandro suggested I guess Watkins is in on height basis but if so we might have been better including COD as well

Odds on Pisano conceding a penalty ?

Think we will actually be 4-4- 1-1

or in theory 4-5-1

Which will actually be

4-4-1 when we don’t have the ball

Pretty sure it's 4-3-3 or some variation of. Boro have three in the middle of midfield so we have to match that.

LJ has just said the plan is to get Watkins in behind Boro  defence using his pace.So him Paterson and Weimann the front three.

Well they are drilling as 

Hunt - Webster-Kelly-Pisano

across back

Kelly is 100%  playing CB

Today will be interesting the last time Kelly played CB, he was bullied all game.

When is DaSilva going to get a start in his specialist position?

Bit puzzled as to why we signed him and then play Pisano at LB. EP hasn't played too well so far and isn't even a LB. Is it just because of the size of the Boro team for this particular game rather than suggesting LJ doesn't trust DaSilva yet?

I’m truly astonished if he’s playing Pisano at CB after Tuesdays showing. He looked completely lost and completely uncomfortable in that position. Didn’t know which way to turn, where to be and struggled to deal with the physicality of the Plymouth forwards.

And what the hell has Eliasson done wrong? 

Madness, LJ tombola is back - except as usual Pato has a free pass to play.
