Blatantly a microwave next to the hat. It’s a fix.

I think it’s the right call that we’ve gone with a front line that will press given we won’t be having too much of the ball. And given the fans reaction to FD vs Preston it’s hardly surprising he’s taken him out the firing line. 

Lets at least wait until we’re a couple down before we slag off the selection :)

I think the main reason our ‘main threat up front’ has been dropped to the bench is that he hasn’t been a ‘main threat up front’ ...or anywhere for that matter ! ..🤔

Because he hasn’t had wingers playing alongside and now we have he’s benched

We play 442 every week, so I don't think that's true. COD, Eliasson, Paterson have all played with FD as well as attacking full backs, we just don't get the ball into the box, the personnel seem irrelevant. 

I'd rather have Taylor and Weimann who would press every day of the week personally, taking FD off at least hopefully stops a bit of the braindead lump it 60 yards and hope approach.

We looked decent offensively when FD was suspended.

That's where you are wrong, LJ just printed out a tonne of team sheets with Pato's name accidentally already selected and ever the environmentalist, he couldn't in good conscience see all that paper go to waste hence just the 10 spots up for debate each week.

I think it’s more what Patto does for LJ when the players have left. Dopey has his dogs, LJ has Patto

Diedhiou has been piss poor recently, makes sense to drop him.

Still lumping it without FD not playing first half so the bloke has to go

Poor team selection, poor shape.

4-4-2/4-4-1-1 with wingers away to a team who press high, who usually control the  ball- interesting selection...

I expected to lose in any case, but that is like trying to succeed with one hand tied behind your back.

What I will say though, is I think LJ was trying to get back to the 4-4-1-1 that served us so well in November, December and at times January last season.

However...With the current personnel, he went entirely the wrong way about it.

              Maenpaa

Hunt Webster Kalas Kelly

Brownhill Pack Walsh Da Silva

             Paterson

             Weimann

Now, that's not ideal because of Paterson's form but that is the closest we have with current available personnel to that shape- perhaps Taylor behind Weimann.

Playing up? I think not.

It's simply full of 'balls',  most of whom he's purchased in his own likeness. The order in which they fall out the bottom is an utter irrelevance given they're all the same.

I've a horrible feeling that you're right. Fortunately Horace has gone into hibernation.
