I think we are all hoping itís the approach that will change more so than the lineup.

There's 2 wingers and a striker on the pitch.

Go for the jugular from the off. 
I predict 3.0 at half time
And 5.0 at full.   
Wishful thinking aside,  you can get some mega odds on 5.0, 5.1, 5.2.

There is an alleged line up posted on the news now site (this is Futbol)

                         Nyland

Hutton      Tuanzabee    Chester   Taylor

              McGinn      Bjarnason

Adomah          Grealish              Bolasie

                    Abraham

Not sure if true but if it is already looks 100% more positive than previous line ups this season

Hutton and Taylor in their orthodox positions, Albert?  I hope not.

Why not Albert our leading goal scorer last season?

Smith likes a quarter back so to speak who has a massive influence on game so have changed my thoughts to

                              Nyland
Bree               Chester        Tuanzebe        Taylor
                             Sjm
                                         Hourihanne
   Bolaise                               Jack               el ghazi/Albert/Kodjia
                                   Abraham

What decking formation is that lol

Having seen them play together a couple of times this season, I think McGinn and Hourihane are a bit too similar to play in the same midfield.  Bjarnason and one of those two with Grealish in front of them would probably be a bit more balanced and would give a bit of flexibility as BB could drop,into a more defensive role if required.

It's an ok line up but I'm struggling to see how it's 100% more positive than typical Bruce line ups to be honest.

Two wingers and grealish in the middle for a start

Bruce played two wingers and Jack central for most of last season.

Yes he did, but didn't seem to this season very much which was strange.

I'd like to see Bolasie start the game tomorrow although he has been quite effective coming off the bench which can help against tiring defenders.
