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

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

2 attacking players if you don't mind. Or are you forgetting Samba?

I think he is assuming our quality will lead to us scoring one way or another so he just wants to keep it as tight as possible at the back.

And to be fair thats an attacking starting 11.

Disappointed he hasn't made a few changes to freshen it up.

Snodgrass and Onamah lucky to be starting, Hogan lucky to be on the coach.

It reads like a 4-3-3 to me with options on the bench. Of course Bruce might decide to go 4-5-1 and hoof the ball all night up to Davis, who will be marked by two central defenders. Then sub Davis in the 78th minute.

It's ours to lose and on paper at least, we should have too much for them.

Bjarnason must look like Messi in training. He genuinely cannot kick a football. What has O'Hare got to do to be involved?
