Surely Kallas has to start instead of one of Vyner/Moore. Bentley back in goal if fit.

I'd also start Semenyo instead of Wells, his overall play was really poor today and he should have scored when setup by Martin in the first half, poor first touch (one of many) meant chance went begging.

 

Agree with all that. Wells link up is sloppy and misses a lot of chances. Semenyo and Martin gives us two strikers we can play it to with their backs to goal. But Semenyo can get behind too. It might only have been Northampton, but they look such a good partnership.

I would add Dasilva to that too. I think we need more down the left side. Rowe good when we push up a lot, but when deeper he seems to get boxed in too much and we have very little going down the left side.

Kalas has to come in for Vyner for me. I think Moore was really good today.

For me, Kalas and Dasilva to start.

Bentley back in goal.

Joe Williams on the bench to get the last 15 minutes.

So, essentially just the two changes from the usual line up which moves us a bit more towards getting the strongest team available on the pitch.

I am sure we will channel our anger into the Boro match. 
 

It should be a tasty game. 
 

Wells must start. He is a poacher and a goal scorer.

Semenyo will get his starts sooner or later but he is not a direct replacement for NW. 

I wouldn’t be surprised to see a Wells brace Tuesday night .

Looking forward to it.

Always a bit of an edge when Colin is in town.

I take it that he is over the virus then ?

Can see a handy 2 nil win for us in this one

We will need to be at our dirtiest to beat a team managed by Colin. Not a game for fairies.

Apart from the long throws up at the Riverside in July, that Warnock side was the most timid I’d seen.

Be interesting to see what changes are made.

Kalas is a no brainer to start, as would Bentley’s return be, if he’s fit. Dasilva is a difficult one, our best LWB when fit but not sure Boro are ideal opponents for his first League start of the season.

Can’t seriously believe I’m reading that Wells (a 20 goal a season striker) should be dropped for Semenyo, who has yet to score a Championship goal in his career. Presumably this is based on his one game scoring drought? 😂

Far more likely to me that Martin, who took a knock early on, starts on the bench (for Fam) & then comes back in on Saturday.

Be nice to have Brunt back in the squad & the lesser spotted Williams available at some point, too.

Might have missed it as I was busy on Saturday afternoon, but was there any reason why Dasilva didn’t make the bench v Barnsley? I assumed he was fully fit.

Tactical....with Brunt not on the bench, COD’s versatility to play in midfield got him the nod.

I’d be surprised if Bentley isn’t available and therefore he will come straight back in.

With 3 CBs I see little reason to worry about Dasilva coming in for Rowe if DH wants to make that change.

I’d be considering Sessegnon for Swansea (Arrrgh I’m looking too far ahead) against either Bidwell or Manning.

Today’s press conference may tell us more.

Some squad if we can’t have a fit Dasilva on the bench!

Maybe not in the team tomorrow against a Boro team that apparently likes to attack down their right hand side - might be that Rowe is better suited for this game, especially in the air ?

Possibly mate. I don’t know much about Boro’s threats apart from Assombalonga who apparently might not be fit for tomorrow’s game.

Understand you don’t change an unbeaten team but I’d like to see Dasilva given a run out.

Glad its not just me. Struggling to see the hype with Semenyo. Yes done well but drop Wells for him? That will do our best goalscorer the world of good won't it.

He may well get the game tomorrow, just a thought that against a Boro side that like chucking the ball forward it may suit Rowe better. Hope to see Dasilva back soon.

My gut feel is that in our last two games, Wells on in the last 15 takes one of the chances we create on the break.  Obviously no certainty of that, but I bet he’d love to be on against tired defenders.

Not dissing Semenyo either....he’s stepped up...and given us another option.  He’ll get his starts...will become a squad game over the next 3 weeks.

We have won 4 and drawn 1 and we are talking about changes?

Remember complaining about LJ the tinker man

 

We're playing twice a week for the next three weeks, including games against Bournemouth, Norwich and Cardiff. Rotation will be needed.

Indeed, the challenge is getting it right.  Bar any niggles (Martin?) from Saturday it’s not asking too much to ask them to play Saturday and Tuesday, especially on the back of an international break.  However, it starts to stack up.

So Holden could pick the same eleven but have to make several on Saturday.  Or he could make a couple each game.

He will earn his corn over the next few weeks, and we will start to see his approach to rotation and fatigue.

I completely agree with your suggestions but you also have to consider if Martin needs to be preserved (not by a taxidermist - you know what I mean!)
