It really wasn't that bad. It was individual errors rather than being out of the game.

It wasn't as awful as some make out, which I mentioned in the post match thread. If we put in a similar performance, we're essentially hoping we get lucky rather than giving ourselves the best chance of winning. 

 

 

I just want to see us outwork the opposition and create better chances than they do. Given the relative abilities of the teams I don't think that's asking too much.

 

 @HighPeakFox the last line wasn't aimed at you, just my general feelings on the game :)

Let's hope she doesn't say anything that makes the top brass at Fulham or ourselves cry, like she did with Leeds lol

When was the last time we won a league game without Ndidi and Vardy? 

 

Perez has had his chance at centre forward, time for Iheanacho now until Vardy is back. Perez has the remarkable knack of either dropping so deep we have no focal point or being offside any time we get a telling ball in to the box. He must have had 3 goals chalked off this season already for offsides and he's barely played.

Not sure but do they actually miss many games together? Last season their injuries seemed to run separately rather than parallel.

Steve Sidwell is a decent pundit, so be interesting to see his comments. Rachel Brown-Finnis doesn't usually add much of interest. Comms are decent, rather these pair over Fletcher and Mcmanaman any day

Don't mind that commentary duo.

 

I don't expect Rachel Brown-Finnis to offer anything worthwhile. Last week vs Everton she was useless.

My guess:

 

                  Kasper

Ricardo   Evans    Cags     JJ

             Mendy    Youri

Albrighton  Maddison    Barnes

                   Ayoze

 

Subs: Ward, Jakupovic, Amartey, Fuchs, Thomas, Hamza, Leshabela, Under, Nacho

 

Maybe we'll see Kel start, but I wouldn't be surprised to see everyone calling for Perez to be put back in again by half time. A lot of people seem to want Under to start, but I don't think Kevin deserves to be dropped, and Under's the better impact sub.

No. Fofana's out for 5 weeks, apparently.

Shit. I know it’s great viewing for the fans but all these games within a week really isn’t helping the players. We are picking up at least 1/2 injuries per game. Not just us as well. Seen hassenhuttl saying today he’s glad they’ve got the points on board as they are struggling with injuries.

Well, after Fofana’s injury and my plan of playing him in midfield going to shite, I’d go with this: 

 

               Kasper 

          Soy Evans JJ 

Ricardo Youri Mendy Thomas 

          Perez Madders 

               Barnes 

 

Get Perez back in his best position as a number 10 and Barnes can be the focal point. I don’t want him to play as a 9, maybe more like how Werner did for Leipzig last season, leading the line but off of the left hand side. Madders and Perez can fill the gaps in the final third with their ability to find pockets in the half spaces. 
 

Thomas is purely for fresh legs, you could easily bring Amartey in for him and push JJ up.

I know. Just when injuries were clearing up, as well.

 

I'm trying to look on the bright side. At least it's a position where we have an equally good player ready to come in.

 

We coped incredibly well with all the injuries in the first half of the season. I'm hoping it won't be quite so bad for the rest of the season, obviously, but if we can carry on managing injuries well, then maybe we'll be alright. As you say, it's not just us. Mad season.

Just glad our main 2 players Vardy and Ndidi are not long term. Imagine if it was Vardy out until April and not Praet. I hope we don’t rush both back too soon.

Ill be streaming Bein Sports with an arabic commentator if thats the case. Youd get more match insight from Stevie Wonder then listening to her clueless yam yam shite.

I'm putting this out there ( a lot games left to play this season) and we have more injuries currently.

 

Rest Barnes / Justin (bench)

 

Play Moore / Fuchs in some capacity

 

3 points is big yes, but FA cup, Europa Cup games to come, we need fresh legs over plenty more games.

I think we'll put a pretty average side out against Brighton. 

It's a game we'll probably be not too disappointed to lose, considering everything that's going on with top 4 and euro games coming up and our injuries. 

 

And I hate myself for saying that as I'd love to see us lift the FA Cup

Kasper 

Ricardo Evans Syoncu JJ

          Mendy 

                Tilemans

Under     Maddison    Barnes

          Perez/Ihenacho 

 

This is what I’d go for. I don’t really care who starts up top, I think they’re both pretty average and not much of a goal threat. They both like to drop in deep so speed on the flanks is essential hence why I would drop Albrighton. Having said that, Albrighton has been great. 
 

IF we get 2/3 goals ahead Tilemans needs a rest - he must be shattered.
