I would love to see SJM pushed alongside Jack and Wes.
How would that work?
Play 3 Centre Backs, with wingbacks
3-4-2-1?
4-3-3
Same as now with any 3 from Hourihane Luis Marvelous and Angela in midfield

Bit harsh on AEG. SJM has got enough energy to be able to support the front players from the midfield. May even help him to be running from deeper.

I would not mind a front 3 of SJM AEG and Jack.
McGinn is scoring goals for fun for Scotland and maybe our most natural finisher.

SJM is probably Scotland's main man at the moment and maybe that is why he hasn't shone so bright for Villa lately. If Jack carries on as he is we might have the same problem with him and England.

I don't think it is humanly possible to maintain his non-stop all-action style over a season.
Either he has to pace himself, or we need to rest him occasionally.

I'd actually look to give him a rest against Chelsea and have him back for Leicester - looks like he needs a break.  Go with Luiz, Marvellous, Conor and Jack.

I mentioned it in the Newcastle post match thread and it looked pretty obvious to me yesterday too, he needs a rest

A rest? Not for me.

He's one of our best players.

No he doesn't need any rest. He had plenty of that when playing for Scotland.

Keep him in, hes been still playing well enough, just not as brilliant as he can.

His best run of form last season coincided with having an enforced rest after too many yellow cards and then coming off the bench at blues and storming round the place

He was poor yesterday I thought, offered little with or without the ball. Following on from average/poor performances v Wolves and Newcastle. Time for a break.

Id still give him a 6 out 10 for yesterday, so Id  keep him in. He wasnt that bad and you know with him this will just change and hell be back to his best again. Hes had little dips before then suddenly hes back charging all over the pitch and amongst the goals again.

Just go back to March, April this year and people were saying this, then he has a stormer and we were all glad he wasnt benched.
