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.

    • Very few to be fair. The odd one whose narrative seems to be that if Gibbo had just turned a blind eye to the blatant rule breaking then none of this would have happened. So it’s his fault. Pretty much every comment on their forum tonight is blaming one person only - and it’s not Gibbo.

    • I would put money that he didn't actually substitute two of the players that were disappointing him at all, because personally I can't see a world in which two of them weren't Tav and Dijksteel. In fact post game I'm sure he even name dropped Dijksteel at the time by saying something to the effect of "one of them is Dijksteel, and he's my favourite!" Now CT has a point and you do have to take everything NW says like this with a huge grain of salt, but I do wonder if he's talking about Tav again here. We've had NW's previous story (excuse?) of Tav doesn't taking warming up seriously, so this doesn't seem like a huge leap.
    • Derby fans blaming Gibson,,,,,,,,Get a grip and smell the coffee. Your Mel Morris is the Be.. end that got you into this mess
    • Christ, that's insane. Professional footballers skipping meals because they CBA to get up? Can this really be true? If so, they're clearly not particularly committed to their profession, or to the club. Any fule kno you need slow-release energy throughout the day, especially if you're an "elite" sportsman. Also interesting that Warnock can tell if someone's had brekky by looking into their eyes. Wonder what else he could tell if he looked at other parts of their anatomy?
