I'd go with Adomah out wide and Jack just behind Hogan.

I've just had a look at their forum (SHA) - I know, I know - and credit to them, they're being very respectful to the big fella.
Fair play to them

this has got to be the most stone wall nil niller since football was invented.
Redknapp won't want to lose his first game, Bruce desperatly won't want to lose, our goal machine is not playing, they are shit and even new manager bouce won't be enough also it's a 12 o clock ko.
It's going to be a crap game for the neutral. hope someone like Grealish can shine but I'm backing 0-0

I was dreading this

Today has created a bit of perspective. It doesn't actually matter that much, especially this season

First time today I've looked in this thread today and atm the game is an irrelevance in my mind as it's all about remembering Ugo at this time.

I know what you mean, SHQ, but death doesn't negate life. It brings it into sharper focus. The game on Sunday is a big part of what Ugo would have lived for. I hope his ex-club can win it.

This is all getting a bit soft. If we are to channel our sadness over Ugo's passing, let's do so in a positive way and win on Sunday.

I'd be amazed if this is anything other than a very drab 0-0. Bruce won't want to lose this and setting up a team to not get beat is a strength of his. Bent 'Arry will also see a draw as a great result and will set up accordingly.

Yeah I understand that. What surprised me more was still plenty of active focus in the Bruce Out thread. Bigger things surely than continually speculating whether a manager with still a pretty decent record in the last three months is good enough for the job than doing it yesterday?

Isn't that exactly what you're doing with that post there?

I am unexpectedly free to go to the
Game tomorrow. If this is the wrong place to ask then I apologise in advance. Does anyone have a spare ticket, full price paid of course.

Thank you
