Looking into ways to share my stream, private youtube might be the way to go. 

Lets put this into perspective after todays results. These championship teams lost to lower league teams: QPR (to Plymouth) Birmingham (to Cambridge) Huddersfield (to Rochdale) Swansea

Strange to have an international break during the league cup. Loads of championship teams have international players

Think the cup was organised after the internationals in this case - with the condensed season they have to fit things in where they can. Personally I would have done away with this cup for the season.

Either 3-5-2 or 4-4-2 (Diamond) for me. 3 at the back if we're looking to use this game as prep for the league games, 4 at the back of we might want to not risk our two senior CBs together - in which case I reckon Hall would be rested for Wood/Stubbs.

The majority of teams will be out of it before September ends, I don't think it will cause too much bother, I'm liking the condensed League Cup fixtures.

We'll have a good week of football with internationals and domestic matches overlapping.

Boro on Friday, England on Saturday, England on Tuesday, Boro on Friday.

Let's have a go at this then... I doubt Fry will go into the team given he's been out. Given there's no Saville or McNair I suspect that will mean we change formation altogether from our supposed future plan.

Stojanovic

Dijksteel Hall Stubbs Johnson

Spence Wing Howson Tav Browne

Britt

Which team and formation?

--------------------------------Stoj

--------------Stubbs ------ Hall ---- Fry

Spence -----Howson - Liddle - Coulson

-------------------------Tavernier

-----------------Fletcher - Assombalonga

 

Pears - Dijksteel - Wood - Malley - Johnson - Wing - Walker


Will we sign anymore players before kick off? (lol)

No

Will Changing Times continue his nice boy streak?

Who?

Can we win?

Yes.

How far can we go in this cup?

We can beat this team, that's as far as I am willing to predict.

Must win game. 

Is Fry even fit to start a game considering no one has seen him since the team returned. Hard to tell what formation should be used. I just don't want Johnson at LB. That's more or less the only demand I have. Fair enough if it's wingback in a 3-5-2 but not as an orthodox LB.

Not 100% sure but think Fry went back to training yesterday.

                       Stoj 

       Dijksteel.    Hall.    Fry

spence.                               Johnson    
       Howson.       Wing.      Tav 

            Britt.           Fletch

 

not an ideal line up, I’d prefer Coulson and saville in there, but that’s the closest we will get to our starting 11 come match day  1.

if Warnock does attempt to send a statement, I can see Stubbs in for dijksteel and a youth teamer in cm. I also expect a bench including the likes of folarin etc and very little else. He may get the same statement by not naming a full bench.....

Doom and gloom aside, it’s a solid starting 11, it’s just missing depth for a long season.

    • Hindsight is a wonderful thing and I'm sure Woods is kicking himself for making the decision to go out on loan.  With the injuries we have atm he would have slotted straight into the team and this would have been the chance he needed to be a permananent name on the teamsheet. Hopefully he will come back from Scotland with the experience because Pelts and Sol wont be around forever and we will certainly be looking at what we have before buying more defenders.

    • Not overly so, says he has a decent relationship but wants to play more and if it means a loan, then he is up for it. sometimes we tend to be a little hard on young players if they have a poor game but if he cracks on, whoever is here when he gets back may want to include him in squad...  still has a way to go and experience will do him good. If he can't deal with Scottish forwards, then he may not be as far along as we hope, but next year or two should see if he is going to make it and I think he will not be found wanting.
    • Watmore will hopefully run rings around their tired legs second half. Would expect Jones and Watmore on for Uche and Sporar for an attacking refresh then Siliki on and Crooks at CB when they shove the big subs on. 
    • Why is that mate? Can't say I know anything about Cardiff these days.
