I'd think it will be same starting 11 as against Reading, but with Massengo in place of Brownhill (please not COD again in CM). Reckon LJ will have Wells on the bench for this one.

Will be tough competition for that number 8 shirt, hopefully a player will emerge and naturally fill the position.

Massengo, Walsh, Nagy, Morrell should all see it as their oppertunity :chant6ez:

Morrell I assume you mean in the summer or do you have info?

However to paraphrase Kevin Keegan. I’d love it if Wells scores tomorrow

Massengo is 42 - 4 x 2 = 8. Coincidence? I think not.

But seriously I'd play Massengo further forward as a no.8. He plays (roughly) there for the U19 national side and by all reports does a good job. I'd have him helping Fam and Weimann with the start of the press, winning the ball upfield as he's so good at using his body to win and then shield the ball, allowing runners to move.

Tomorrow though? Start Wells surely?

I think it'd be foolish to have him on the bench, he may not know his team-mates all that well yet but he knows the opposition better than any of our lot. There is no doubt in my mind he'll be looking to win over our fans and a goal against his old club would do that instantly. I fully expect LJ to talk to him about their tactics, players and then look to make the most of that inside information.

Agreed, he's off for the mandatory 6 months with the U23s to learn the infamously tricky Johnson-ball system.

And he is 18. 1 x 8 = 8.

I think Massengo in for Josh tomorrow, and keep the rest the same, as per OP. Not sure where Wells head will be at regarding playing at Loftus Rd as an away player this soon. And I like Massengo, think he could use his energy and tenacity to work well for us defensively and offensively similarly to Josh.

Yeah the real tweet is about our interest in Henriksen. At the top of the image the time is 15.20, no way that went under the radar for over an hour.

Unchanged if we don't sell anyone in the next few hours.

We played very well. It's interesting if we win and play well again and keep a clean sheet.

It would be 4 league wins in a row abd would be difficult to change for LJ. Though I'm sure he will.

Na. It'll be Massengo. Or maybe LJ will pull a rabbit out of the hat and play Tommy centrally.

As for Wells, he's a better finisher than Diedhiou and will encourage us to pass and move rather than play long. 

We need to score earlier in games and bury some of those sweet passes from Eliasson. Why wait until the 70th minute?

This City side is about putting fear into the opposition. A proper step up and I'm excited for the remainder of the season.

                 Henrikksen   Nagy

Dasilva     Benkovic    Kalas     Hunt

                           Bentley

Wollacott

LJ will always play Weimann it seems. And I can't see him dropping Williams. 

Good problems to have for a manager. I like your team though.

Would probably rather have Korey in there than Nagy with how Nagy has mainly looked so far. Though I know on a good day he is quality.

I think he may start same team with Wells and Palmer coming on after an hour as plan B if needed.

Ultimately I think we may end up 3-5-2 again.

Swap Smith for Nagy and I’m with you. Then up to Palmer to start performing. We can’t give him 5 games to improve. Needs to do it nearly straight away

Yes he was, playing left flank. It's when he is asked for play CM that he looks a waste of space, he himself has said that's not the position he wants to play.

The key for me is stopping Eze who played excellently against us at Ashton Gate.He gave Taylor Moore and Hunty a few problems on that lovely sunny afternoon.

I imagine we will play a similar side apart from Brownhill with Wells coming off the bench on 72 mins to score the winner!Really pleased with recent additions and hope LJ gets the best out of them.Enjoy your afternoon in London to all who are going.

Coyr

ps Are the 2 lads we signed yesterday eligible for today?

They shouldn't be available if signed after noon yesterday. Doubt LJ would play them a day after signing anyway when we've just won 3 in a row.

I'm worried about the other winger they have too. But then they should be worried about us. Eliasson on Jed Wallace. Surely he should have too much for him.

You say about Eze, I'd trust Pereira more on him. He's better defensively. Should be playing more imo.

If he does, then I expect he won’t celebrate (depending on the reception the QPR fans give him of course). He was well liked there and I would expect him to be magnanimous.

A mate who supports Huddersfield says Wells can't play on his own up front.  That was obviously a few years ago, but if that's still the case then I'd expect Weinmann to partner him and then it will hopefully be Afobe when he returns.

Lee has so many options now in terms of formations and personnel, his head must be spinning.  Really not sure how many debuts there will be though I'm praying that Wells starts.

Too many?

Because historically, our best form has been when his hand is forced to stick to 1 particular way of playing.

Didn't they go up with him up top on his own? And been in great form up top on his own at QPR hasn't he?

I do believe LJ will be looking to play Weimann with him though. And that will be 442. But may go 352 and drop Eliasson for Palmer at some point if 442 doesn't work.

Be interesting when Afobe returns what happens then. Having 2 pacey strikers who score goals could really be a handful for any defence.

They’ve played a lot of games in a 4231 this season, with Wells up top, with the likes of Eze, Chair and Bright-Samuel in a 3 behind him.  In fairness he’s played off of Hugill a fair bit too.

I’d say he can do both....but with all these things it’s about service.

Difficult to call what 11 we’ll see at Loftus Rd. 

Only Wells will be available as the others signed after midday and I imagine he’ll start alongside Famara. Here’s my guess - 

Bently,

Isaac, Williams, Baker, Dasilva

Elliasson, Smith, Rowe Wiemann

Wells Famara

Reckon CoD will replace Brownhill.

 

Would like to see instead...

_______________Bents______________

Hunt_____Williams__Baker____DaSilva

_______________Smith______________

Weimann_______Pato________Eliasson

_________Famara____Wells__________

Tbh...my gut says well always have Weimann playing the forward role with Famara and Wells interchanging.
