Exactly, canít see Bjarnasson as anything other than a defensive midfield option either, not an ounce of creation if it is going wrong, that 11 make it happen or we lose!

I'd have had at least 2 of Grealish Lansbury and O Hare on the bench

my thoughts too Gareth 3 defenders plus Jedi is a joke
2 defenders and 2 forwards ..... he'll be classing samba as an 85th min sub up front to get on end of long ball for equaliser !😜

4-5-1
1 attacking player on the bench
Bjarnason over O'Hare

All against a team missing half a defence. Boring bastard.

That bench is cowardly
Iím sick of that phrase. Itís not cowardly itís what the manager thinks is right with the resources available. Heís not going to include players who have been out for months and played on Monday is he?

Why would you need 3 defenders, a goalkeeper and a defensive midfielder on the bench? What a fucking fanny.

Maybe his plan is to push Hutton & Elmo forward and running in the first half to get a lead then replace one (or both) in the second depending who tires early?

Anyways I am fine with the starting line up at least, assuming Kodjia is injured.

I don't agree chrisw1 as O hare has not been out for months and could easily play the last 30 mins or so if needed

An infuriating selection of subs !

Why not?  Someone who played an hour on Monday is perfectly capable of 15 mins if needed on Wednesday.

He has 7 subs - he has selected 5 options to shore it up & 1 to try and change it positively.
