My main concern with that would be that you're essentially playing with 2 defenders. Neither Spence or Coulson offer much defensively, so we'd be left very exposed.

I think Dijksteel would be better on the Right in a 4 at the back, but at LB we don't have a particularly sound defensive option - that's the main reason I expect to keep seeing 3-5-2, unless a 4th LB/LWB option was to be signed, which seems unlikely. 

Midfield, Three behind the striker, absolutely. Like the look of that shape. But we're already suspect defensively as is.

If it is Kilman I shall officially anoint you as "ITK" and will add the following text to the front page post:

 

"DUVEL IS ITK NOW AND SUPER COOL TOO. YOU SHOULD ALL LISTEN TO WHATEVER HE SAYS".

    • Well it's game day and finally I am looking forward to watching the Boro again. Yes the games come thick and fast but it is a bonus when you really do look forward to the matches. Such a difference a year makes. 3 away points are due so why not today? UTB!
    • @Redcar Rioja I'd start with the same team that started against Derby, partly for the reasons you mentioned above in terms of ability for NW to control the game. But also I can imagine the first 60 minutes of today being a very tight game. Huddersfield play a similar style to us in terms of a man to man system (If you believe the Brentford head coach), and I can envisage them being compact in defence and matching us 1 on 1. With Roberts, Tav and Whatmore behind the lone striker they (in my opinion) are more likely to unlock a compact defence than if Johnson or Spence were starting. If we can entice Huddersfield to push forwards and move away from their marking style later in the game, that's when I'd bring Johnson and Spence on, that way they can exploit the space that will open up. If we can nick a goal before that point Huddersfield may open up sooner in pursuit of the equaliser.  I think the first goal today will decide the winner of the game. I have a hunch we'll win this game 0-2.
    • Wrong George, I meant Saville, where on earth did Friend come from???? Subliminal thinking, instinctively programmed for years, that of course and I hadn't had my coffee yet! 😁 Clearly gone but not forgotten.  
    • Oh dear mate. I have some bad news to tell you about Friend 🙁
    • With the amount of Subs now allowed I wouldn't be surprised if NW threw the gauntlet down to Roberts and Watmore after the Johnson and Spence cameos the other night and started with them again. With match fitness a question mark over both I would guess he would rather start with them and then plan to take them off when tiring rather than maybe having to put them on early as a Sub if an injury occurred. Warnock seems very protective of his players and the risk of them picking up injuries which is why I think he may start with Roberts and Watmore as it gives him more in-game control. The obvious choice would be if he started with those that finished on Wednesday night but I suspect he will want to keep morale high across the squad and keep faith in Watmore and Roberts knowing that he can fall back on Johnson and Spence. Whatever he goes with he has my confidence and trust which is something I don't think I have felt about a Boro Manager in a very long time.
