So we have no first team full backs available, but we must presumably have at least two under contract and playing for the U23s. Are we saying that they are not good enough, the manager doesn’t trust them or what. How does a young player break into the first team if they are never given a chance to prove themselves 

We have Williams Kokolo in the academy who is meant to be highly rated, don't understand why we aren't giving him a chance.

I don't know if anyone else was close by or saw that but I was coming down the stairs in the North for the build up to that second goal. Payero sets up Coburn and we should be saying first and foremos

Providing nobody is back from injury, this is the team I would go for

                         Lumley

        Howson. Mcnair Bamba Bola

         Lea silki.  Crooks. Tavernier

       Watmore (Begrudgingly)    Jones

Bregudily won't be match fit, not up to the pace of the Championship, carrying a knock, pulled up in training/hasn't trained well or arrived back late from International duty so it will have to be Watmore!

I assume the back 3 would assist given our RB on the day will be a midfielder (Tav, Jones or Howson). The extra defender will cover the RB as no doubt the opposition will rightly target our RB knowing he a midfielder thinking they will get joy down that side.

For what its worth I would be playing a back 3 this weekend given our 3 RBs are all out.

The formation we play is not the issue. Its the tactics we employ in that formation that could be. A back 3 does not instantly mean negativity.

A 4.4.2 under Pulis will be a lot more defensive than a 3.5.2 that say someone like a wilder employed at Sheff Utd.

In all fairness warnock probably will go with the team you have suggested.

Imo it's a poor strategy to play a winger and central midfielder as wing backs and a left back in centre half and expect to be winning games at this level. Not only that but playing our best player as a wing back and out of position is a total waste and he looks absolutely raging when he plays there. Go with a back 4 and you only need to have howson out of position. If fry or Hall are back mcnair could probably go in there for a couple of games. It's better to have one out of position than 3. 

Unfortunately we already shipped our 2 wingbacks out so we should not be considering playing wingbacks thank Colin for that masterstroke. I'm not against the formation but I definitely am when we don't have players to fill the positions.

Feels like I'm pilling on the gazette a lot recently, but the gall for them to start a tweet with "Peterborough are 2nd bottom for a reason" after spending the last 2 weeks giving every excuse under the sun (apart from the actual reason) for our poor performances is breathtaking.

They may, as others teams have a poor defence, but this is offset by BORO lack of ability up front. 
I don’t want to say it but with reported injuries making headlines I’m more then worried about this game.

    • What's the thought on that for Benzema then? I'm mostly confused that nobody is talking about the involvement of the Real Madrid player who attempts to play the ball. Surely the only way that the deflections and the unintentional nature of them matter is if the Real Madrid player that comes in for it actually gets a touch. If the ball makes it from Benzema back to Benzema without touching a single other Real Madrid player, how can he be offside? I thought offside was only possible if the ball is played from one player to another. The only meaningful touch then would be Konate's attempt to control the ball. It deflects off Allisson, Konate and Fabinho. It's in the middle of that, is it Valverde who attempts to get a touch?
    • With Craig Johns mentioning strikers who's contracts up next summer here's the full list according to transfermarkt, would take some from there for sure I'd have Shayne Lavery as a back up I thought he was a proper nuisance in all the games vs Blackpool 
    • Agree with what people have said about Gyokeres. As a career move we are better for him than Fulham. He remains my no.1 striker choice but all depends on his price tag. Would not want to pay over the odds for him on back of 1 good season.
    • I suppose the difference with the Muniz situation last season is that we could guarantee that Gyokeres will be first choice. He's not going to be daft enough to believe he's going to start ahead of Mitrovic.
