Why not set up exactly how we did last time out and give them the problem of how to brake it rather than trying to change tactics?, just work on a plan b in training just in case plan a fails then u have a buffer.

Because they'll be expecting that?

 

Ah but if they know that we think they'll be expecting it then they'll expect us to change it to what they don't think we will do so they will be expecting us to do what they don't expect us to do and therefore we should do what we think that they don't think we should do.

 

It's easy this tactics lark.

But they would expect us to think like that

Maybe, but could they cope with it?

 

Let them expect it... Let play to our strengths and don't mess about changing formation/Players.

Why not just play the way we did when we beat them 2-0.. No need to mess about IMO.

 

because football's not that simple

Ayala's out injured and we don't know it Woody can play so soon after his last match. If he can't do you bring big ken back or move Kalas in one. If you move Kalas in one then who goes to RB?

 

Plus the result against Ipswich was better than the performance. 

 

Vossen was invisible first half and the inclusion of a Tomlin (or Forshaw) can give us an extra body in midfield. Reach was poor but provides balance to the team and gets the best out of Friend and allows Double A to play on the right.

 

Double A's on fire at the moment and I really want to see him on the right until the end of the season.

Hmmm fair point, I hadn't even considered that.  And what if McClaren has employed a leading psychic to help him anticipate what we're going to do, we're stuffed either way.  Now, if we'd employed a voodoo doctor then we could block their psychic's powers but we didn't bring one in last summer because apparently we thought it would be better to spend £3m on a striker that can't even score any goals...I'm go angry me right now  :@

When I say play the way we did when we beat them 2-0 I do mean set up in the same way and have the same approach to the game... Obviousy the performance might not be as good but hey it might be even better....

So yes it is that simple, Play your best team.. Whats so hard about that.

I see.... It's one of those situations where we know how to beat them. But they know we know that so they will act differently. Luckily for us we know that they know, they know what we know all about them so if we change what they know we know by not changing anything. They now don't know we know that they know we know ...... Simples

 

Unless they anticipate that. In that case were screwed :s

We were poor as a team in the first half and Adomah was the only good player in the first half.. To pick out Vossen is just silly.

Derby are going to be set up different to the game at the riverside with Martin out. I think they have been playing russel upfront, Not the most physical forward so not a bad game for Ayala to miss. I think we need pace in the right back role to deal with Tom Ince.

If fredrics is fit i would play him if not Nsue. With Kalas moving alongside Gibson. (I can't see woody playing 2 games in 3 days.)

Fredricks is definitely out for this one so imagine it will be Nsue anyway

Big difference between being poor and invisible

 

So what's our best team for Tuesday then?

 

If Ayala is out.. Woodgate if hes fit to replace him, If hes not then I would start Nsue at right back and shuffle Kalas back to CB... Keep the same starting line up apart from that..... So just one change if Ayala is out.

 

I just deleted that last bit... I wouldn't do it in this game.

    • Fletcher he has grown on me this season. That said theres been a fair few games recently where he has ball watched or jumped for a header knowing he was nowhere near it. When we had our mini revival though he looked a good player he battled and held up the ball well and could see theres a decent player there. But if hes not on his game hes like a rabbit in the headlights. However I dont see him as the guy who will score the goals to win promotion or save you from relegation which we really need him to be right now. 
    • He was NOT the fans choice. He was Gibson's choice and it was pretty clear before he was appointed that we did not want him as a manger or head coach. Our concerns were completely dismissed then, and are still being dismissed. This is not down to unrealistic expectations. Most have been highlighting a mid-table finish as what should be achievable with the players we have and now simply want to stay in the Championship - both of which would have been realistic under a manger with a basic level of competence.  People gave Woody time (way more time than they would have given anyone else) but that does not mean he was our choice.
    • Who’s knows where we’d be if Roberts didn’t get injured and McNair took away that penna...
    • It’s a loss in the sense that now Coulson will probably go back to Lb.  That essentially gets rid of any pace and attacking threat from the forwards.
