Thats right although its harsh on JCR who had a decent game against WBA

My team would be

James

Ribs, Wilson, Stewart, McAllistair

Cisse, Killkenny, Marv

Adomah, Maynard, Stead

Subs - Fonts, Skuse, JCR, Pittman, Bollasie

You could well be right, though if Kilkenny is 100% fit surely Millen will want to start with his biggest summer signing?

Wilson and Pitman are the other two with the best chance of starting, as Woolford is unlikely to do so. If McAllister was injured on Saturday then Nyatanga will start at LB instead and so Wilson will get in.

Pitman's best chance would appear to be if Stead isn't 100% fit.

Close I think but maybe we'll see Kilkenny in the middle. I wouldn't be surprised to see Bolasie instead of JCR either.

I hope it's not some bastard stepchild of 433.

For me I would line up something like this:

James

Ribs (or Skuse)

Fontaine

Wilson

McAllister

Cisse (or Elliott) sitting DM

Adomah on the Right

JCR (or Woolford) on the Left

Killkenny (or Possibly Pitman?) sitting behind in AM

Maynard

Stead

Possibly not the best formation but just thought maybe something a little different.

-------------------Jamo------------------

--------Carey----Fonts-----Tanga--------

Adomah-----Marv-----Skuuuse---Bolasie

---------------------Killer-----------------

------------Stead-----Maynard----------

I think we will switch to a 352 if Macca still injured.

Don't you think that defence is a bit inexperienced?

James

Carey

Fonts

Stewart

McAllister

Albert

Elliott

Skuse

I'd go with the team that started against West Brom. I thought Campbell-Ryce was impressive but Kilkenny much less so.

to be fair he'd just come back from injury and didn't really have time to make an impression,

Same can be said about Balsie and Taylor as well,

The goal we concided was a set peice but again I put that down to mainly the 3 changes we made before the corner,

You should never change a team (defenders mainly) at a corner kick as half the time you will concide but it was only a friendly

That's fair enough. I don't doubt that Kilkenny is much better than we saw on Saturday. Nevertheless, unless his fitness and sharpness improves dramatically in the week it would still make sense to me to start JCR as I thought he had a stronger game.

Until the substitutions I thought City played pretty well, but it wasn't the most testing of friendlies. If they can retain and pass the ball that well in league games they'll do OK, but I doubt they'll get the time to do so.

Have you seen Cissé play centre half? He is worse than Hunt when played in defence.

Decent in midfield, though the stories about fitness and how lethargic he has been this pre-season make me think he has a crap attitude.

My team would be a straight 4-4-2.

James

Carey

Wilson

Fontaine

McAllister (Nyatanga if not fit)

Adomah

Elliot

Kilkenny (Skuse if not fit)

Woolford/JCR

Stead

Maynard

SUBS;

Carey

Pitman

Nyatanga/Stewart

Skuse/Kilkenny

Reid

(anyone else think 5 subs ain't enough!!)

5 subs is definitely not enough, i can't see keef not having a keeper on the bench so i can see this being our bench

Carey

Nyatanga (If McAlister is fit, if not then this will probably be stewart)

Woolford / Bolasie

Elliott / Skuse

Pitman

He didn't stand out for individual performance but he made himself available and helped us lower our long-ball count significantly.

Kilkenny? I thought our passing got much worse when he came on.

He did make himself available, but often ended up receiving it under pressure and either giving it straight back or wasting possession. I'm willing to accept that this may have been down down to a lack of fitness, but JCR was able to dribble his way out of trouble before using the ball more effectively than Kilkenny.

League games may be a different matter and West Brom did allow our players a lot of time on the ball but I was very impressed with the passing by the midfield which started the game. The only problem was they seemed slow to spot forward runs off the ball. Numerous times there was a player breaking from midfield and the player on the ball didn't spot the pass until it was too late. If they can keep making the runs and start to make the passes they'll be an exciting team to watch this season.

Cisse looked decent at CB up until the last game he played there, where i think he scored an own goal? But that was one bad game, i think he looked good up until then, but i agree he is a better Midfielder but just doesnt fit in if Skuse continues to play like he did vs West brom!

I agree this is close (and personally I'd like to see Kilkenny for Elliot but doubt Millen will try this).

However, I'm confused by how many people have said Stead/Maynard when they have hardly played together pre-season.

Is Millen playing a canny game and keeping the oppo scouts guessing? I think that playing your first choice team outweighs any shenanigans...

Therefore, don't you think the team that started against WBA will start against Ipswich assuming Macca is fit??

i.e it will be a bastard stepchild of 433. disapointed2se.gif

We have to play 433 because the defence is so bad. It allows 1 player to sit and encourages the others to roam, playing stead on the left is far from ideal but until we can bring in players to strengthen the back line a 433 is the way to go imo
