If you get beat Saturday Holden needs to resign as we're also playing Brentford the same day so expect fringe players and the odd trialist or two and definitely no celebrations at the end of the game😁

It will seem odd that if you beat us on Saturday you would've won the league before the season's even started

Would be concerned if Rowe, Vyner, Hunt, Weimann and O'Dowda are regular starters going into this season. 

Hopefully focusing on fitness levels and not this being a starting 11 for next Saturday or Coventry.

Yeah can't see any of them being regulars. Even Weimann looks unlikely to start now it seems Fam is staying and the depth we have in midfield.

If same system then Rowe at left centre back.

 

I do miss these games and keep hoping we get you at your place in the FA Cup under normal circumstances so we can experience the atmosphere of the new Ashton Gate 

No excuses from me today if we get beat as we've put out a strong team

I think Weimann will be a regular starter - especially with a 352

Hunt, as it stands, will also start regularly as our first choice RWB.

Yep as it stands. But would be surprised if we don't bring in Pereira or some other improvement.

I'm not sure who gets dropped for Weimann when all available?

Fam and Wells up top seems to be the plan. Eliasson and Paterson midfield but with Walsh returning too. Massengo an option.

I did see some positive signs with Weimann in midfield though but hard for him to get in there.

We will need different systems - I’m pretty sure we’ll see Wells as our main forward with some rotation of Diedhiou as a traditional ‘target man’, Palmer/Paterson as an advanced playmaker or Weimann as a deeper lying forward who’ll do plenty of running.

That’s a good variety of options and with a congested schedule of games we will need some squad rotation.

I think different variations of 5 at the back systems might be used. Like in a very tough game we go with only one of Fam or Wells with an extra midfielder in there.

I don't see us keeping Palmer myself though. Don't think he fits in with how Holden says he wants to play.

Yes, which is why you could see that selection differently. For instance, Hunt, Vyner, Kallas and Rowe could be a perfectly orthodox flat back four. It will not sit well with anyone who feels strongly that we must have a defined way of playing and adhere to it., but there may be occasions when DH will want to vary it, to match up an opponent, or for some other tactical reason. Just saying...

Taylor Moore ignored again..........what does he have to do to get a regular game? Hopefully he will get a half?

He got 120 mins v Villa....played both games (60 mins each).

Weimann was involved in 45 of last season’s games.

The only one that he missed was following his positive test, he is certain to be a regular, probably not starting quite as many as last season (42!) but a lot.

Hunt will also be in the squad on a regular basis & if Vyner isn’t, (at 24) he needs to move on then, though my hunch based on the fact that he got on the pitch for all 5 of the games that Holden was in charge, is that he will be, too.

Rowe did a superb job whilst Dasilva was injured & is an invaluable squad member.

Dasilva didn’t feature v Villa, so can only assume he picked up a little knock / strain, that he’s been nursing.

With 5 missing through international duty next Saturday & 2 others injured it would be bonkers to have risked Dasilva today.

I'm talking about best 11 if everyone is ever fit. Or more realistically when all in one position are fit..I can't see then where Weimann will be starting with Fam and Wells up top and all the midfield options we now have.

On Rowe I don't rate him at wing back. But whatever I think, it seems Holden is going with O'Dowda at left wing back cover to Dasilva.

If Rowe is seen as left centre back in a 3 then I'm not sure if he will be needed if rumours are true that we are looking to bring in another left sided centre back. It would then be new LCB or Baker. With Kalas, Moore and Vyner there too.

Rowe's best position is supposed to be midfield, but obviously very little chance of him being needed there either.

I either see him as emergency back up that probably won't play. Or moved on.
