Thread: My team for Tuesday (could be shot down for this !)

  1. #1

    My team for Tuesday (could be shot down for this !)

    I don't fully support the idea that the system is wrong its more the personnel and more so the tactics.

    Playing 5 at the back can work as long as the wing backs understand their roles (clearly NG & Bagan do not) and you have some pace in the centre back 3.

    With this in mind, here goes:-

    Smithies

    Sang NG Flint McGuiness Ralls (he's played left back before and been o.k)

    Pack Bacuna

    Colwill Moore Giles

    Im not sure Ralls gives us the width we need and I'd be very concerned about Pack and Bacuna being totally overrun.

    I'm saying that, the squad has so few options I'm not sure what the answer is at the moment.

    Apart from the fact I'd have Morrison in for Flint, then yeah, I'd go with that line up. We couldn't do any worse that what we did yesterday, could we?

    I dont know the answer either, but unless MM can come up with something special WBA will overrun us.
    Smithies has to start, as has McGuinness. We cant carry on playing Flint and Morrison together so one will have to go of we are to play 5 at the back. In midfield, if Ralls unfit, Bacuna to play. Giles, Moore and Harris up top.

    Ralls cant play wing back he is better in the centre. Morrison isnt fit due to his ankle and Nelson is out of form. Put Mcquiness and Ng in the back 3.

    Drop one of Morrison play a back 4. McGuinness Flint might have to be the way forward. Might have to play Brown at LB. Pack the midfield, with Giles and Harris wide. God, our squad is limited.

    What is "the system" if it isn't the personnel and tactics?

    Re: My team for Tuesday (could be shot down for this !)

    We had such an awful transfer window that we cant change formation, Giles was a wing back for rotherham so I would move him there as we are desperate for width. Id like to see colwill as a 10 and Harris up front with Moore. MM will never play this being so defensive but oh well.
    I would go

    Smithies

    NG McGuiness Morrison Nelson Giles

    Pack Bacuna
    Colwill
    Harris Moore

    Nelson needs to be benched

    Look I like Smithies, well I used to, but what reason would he be back in the side? He was abysmal when he last played a few.

    Re: My team for Tuesday (could be shot down for this !)

    Bowen over Bacuna in central midfield for me.

  12. #12

    Re: My team for Tuesday (could be shot down for this !)

    Smithies
    Ng, Flint, Brown, Bagan
    Giles, Ralls, Bacuna, Pack, Colwill
    Moore

    McGuiness and Morrison may be instead of Flint and Brown, but I could go with that line-up.

    I think the midfield would be over run and personally don't see anything in Harris but that's closer to my thinking.

    Id probably drop Harris for Ralls as another body in midfielder and have Colwill pushing up close to Harris.
    I'd probably play Bowen or Vaulks ahead of Bacuna as well

    Stop playing 10 defenders would be a start!

    The worrying thing is that we play ultra defensive and conceded 5 🤣🤣🤣🤣

    Re: My team for Tuesday (could be shot down for this !)

    Everyone knows we have slow defenders, that don't turn well, and we are weak on the left flank (Sorry Joel, but it's true). We need to make a couple of changes in defence, like bringing in McGuinness, for starters. If we went to a back four, then Giles could play wide left without having to cover as left full back. If a 4-4-2 is out of the question, what about 4-5-1?

    Re: My team for Tuesday (could be shot down for this !)

    Anything but the 5 back.

    We don't have the personnel for a wingback system.

    Re: My team for Tuesday (could be shot down for this !)

    I know it's quite early to right off a player I haven't seen a 10 minute window where I have rated Bagan. Unfortunately once again we left options at left back thinner than anywhere else. Something has to change and so I would go with this:

    Phillips

    Sang
    Flint
    McGuinness
    Ng

    Pack
    Ralls

    Giles
    Colwill
    Harris

    Moore

    Thats pretty close to my thinking, ditch the disastrous wing backs and get Colwill in as a number 10 which he clearly looks like. Not sure about chucking McGuiness in yet, that being said Morrison and Flint have always looked terrible in a two due to the lack of pace and Nelson seems way out of form so maybe its the only alternative.
