Afobe up front surely? He’s had a good rest & must be raring to go.

Blimey. If Afobe is fit, then of course he plays. If. See 16 page thread...

You must be starting to pong a bit now mate ?

It's the secret behind our form. I'm doing this for all of us.

I'd like to see us play Weimann centrally with Semenyo and Eliasson wide and Palmer at the head of the midfield trying to thread them through.  I don't want to see us playing direct balls to Fam with nobody near him, it doesn't work well.

Should be this all day long.

Palmer is the only one can find Weimann’s runs. Could be a good partnership there.

Fam will play his part but I hope he’s not the answer.

 I totally agree - and it looks as though @Lew-T beat me to being the first to do so! I'd love to see us trying to make a more sophisticated possession based attack work...not got anything against Fam as an option but too often the ball just seems to bounce off him.

Hope Fam is on the bench, if we go back to the style of play, lumping balls at him then can only see a loss, we need clever movement in front of Palmer, so would prefer Weimann & Semenyo

I can't see how that would work other than having 11 outfield players ?

You can't see how we could play 433/451 ?

Think szmodics might be involved.

Been saying it all season. O'Dowda left wing back for me too. Or even left back if we go to a 4. Looked very comfortable there against Boro who then switched their attacks to the other side once they knew O'Dowda was not so easy to run at.

Not against Semenyo starting. Will probably be Fam. Could Eliasson play off of Weimann? Maybe that wouldn't work, who knows. And I still think Szmodics looks some player from that 45 mins against Derby in preseason. Still some very good options and LJ needs to find a blend that works now Afobe out.

What I think might happen is LJ tries numerous different combinations until something looks right. As long as the defensive unit is mainly similar most games then this might be the best thing to do.

I don't want him to persist with a strike force that kind of does a job every game. If he goes with Fam and Weimann and it looks really good, then great. But otherwise I'd want to see a different combination.

Nothing against HNM, but I would take him out the team for this one and go for experience in the middle. Assuming Nagy is still out, I’d put Tommy Rowe in at CM and COD LWB.

3-5-2

Bentley

Moore

Williams

Baker

Hunt

COD

Rowe

Brownhill

KP45

Fam

Weimann

Semenyo has yet to develop clever movement.  He’s a bit static / reactionary from the bits and pieces I’ve seen.  Lots of ability, and as @Olé would say - he’s a specimen!!  He has something.  Impact sub today for me.

COD i’m sure will see minutes at LWB over the coming weeks.

I would start with Fam today.  Your post yesterday Re 5212 v Derby in pre-season jogged my memory.  Interestingly I saw it as more 532...and Rowe broke forward more than Szmodics.  So perhaps WBs with Fam / Andi up front can work.  Hope so!

Agree, let’s fine the right “forward” set-up....hopefully one that Palmer continues to thrive in.

So how would you describe Fam? to me he is the most static player's when receiving the ball we have (including Bentley)

I didn’t say Fam was!!  Just said Antoine hadn’t developed that part of his game....yet.

Fam needs to run the channels more, give that option.  His modus operandi is to come short.

I thought it was Rowe alongside Brownhill. Both covering wing backs who were both excellent. Szmodics in behind Fam and Weimann. Rowe was covering Dasilva a lot I thought.

I think that (5212) was the expectation, but in reality it was pretty fluid.  In fact it was Brosnhill who was the more disciplined and both Rowe and Szmodics broke the lines.

Both full-backs didn’t need a lot of covering, they were “bombing’ that night.  Hunt was brilliant.  He’s carried that forward into the season hasn’t he.

Cant wait for today.

Anyone know if Nagy is fit to play today?

Johnson suggested the international game had set him back a couple weeks didn't he?

Reckon he could make bench.
