1-0 either way or 0-0.

Our last 3 wins - Leeds, Arsenal and Southampton.
Dingles last 3 wins - Leeds, Southampton and Arsenal.

Nailed on, low-scoring, snooze fest that will end victorious for whichever club that doesn't make the fuck up.

What a lovely positive Pre-match thread.

3-0 Watkins, Mings and AEG.

I think Nakamba would be better suited to this game than the last.

It's hard to know at the moment. Wolves seem to set up to defend and counterattack so maybe Luiz will be better to help unlock them? Centre of midfield seems to be the one area where we've got good options, but Dean seems to be struggling a little bit to find his best combination and get a tune out of them all.

I see that Wet Spam are keeping a very close eye on Tammy Abraham. We need to keep tabs on him closely. With Chelsea likely to sign another striker, in the summer plus they’ll have Barkley back as well, we could do worse than get Tammy back. Ollie could then play wide left for us. Sounds good on paper anyway!!

That could work, not necessarily with Tammy, but with Ollie out a bit wider. He's got everything you need in any of the wide attacking roles, eg hard work, pace, skill on the ball and eye for goal. He'd be much better there than any of the other three I reckon.

He's more likely to play on the right than the left and Grealish would be left. Tammy can play wide too (at one point he said it was his preferred position) but having those 3 changing positions mid-game could be interesting.
Oddly that's how I'd assumed we were trying to set up long term ... all the attacking players we've brought in seem to be able to play in a couple of positions. Can imagine in the future we'd have a front 3 of something like Ollie/Tammy/Bertie with Jack just behind them. Then those 3 rotate positions every so often and Jack bombs around in a free role, looking space & causing general havoc. Opposition wouldn't have a clue what was going on.

You might be right.

I know I'm on my own but I'd start with AEG and Watkins either side of Davis. I'd also have Barkley back in playing 1:2s with him and working them.

Sanson and Nakamba or Luiz.

I am struggling after the shock of Sheffield to know what team I would go with. The players that did very badly AEG Elmo and Traore should lose their place but I doubt we have another Right Back.
Luiz should play because he is likely to be Fresh. I do not believe we should ever have Traore and Barkley starting together because neither offer anything without the ball.
I am not as adverse to Davis as some but I worry he will break down getting off the bus.

Davis is shit, he should be plying his trade in the 1st Division. Nevermind that he can't hit a barn door, he doesn't even know barn doors exist, he carries that little goal threat.

I would rather get Kevin Davies out of retirement and then at least we could have two fat arses on the pitch.

He should have gone out on loan. He needs a season playing regularly, firstly to see if he can stay fit, and secondly to find out if he does actually possess any sort of a goal threat.
