Will say this I liked the look of VLP he stormed through the middle of their defence which was great to see and set up another good chance for Britt.

He literally ran out of steam yesterday and at one point he had real trouble getting back into the defensive area.

 

He does not kid many now and his creative aspect is waning more and more.

 

Need to really think about who should cover for George perhaps Downing from time to time?

 

I suggested this the other day, that Downing could do an ok LB .. He is as defensive as one anyway.

 

He played there quite a bit for Liverpool so he has experience at it too.

 

I think Downing would be an awful full back defensively. He doesn’t put his head on the line or make blocks - he stays out of trouble as much as he can.

Friend's form?.. For me he's been outstanding most of the season (as has Shotton when fit). The lad has some motor on him, never stops up and down.

 

Have a feeling vs Leeds we'll start 532, Wing probably sacrificed for Howson in midfield with Mikel and Sav.

 

Really? Friend has regularly been one of our more suspect players for me. Absolutely no questioning his motor and heart and I love the bloke, but he's often caught out of position and will usually give the ball away in a stupid area at least once a game.

 

Hes not sure if hes meant to be lw or lb thats my worry with friend. For me id play him as lw as he does make some decent runs forward (shows good heart and drive in games) and find someone more reliable at lb. Get rid of downing as hes too old, slow and stealing a living by passing the ball sideways all game and use his wages to bring in a right winger.

Friend as lw and downing as lb! I’ve heard it all now :) downing is hopefully gone next season and friend as backup regardless of which league we are in.

    • We proper stitched up Browne and Coulson midweek like, feel for them.
    • I'd also expect the same team barring Morsy, which is kind of worrying. I feel like if Coulson was playing left wing back against Barnsley, he might have at least had a chance to show what he can do getting down the outside of people. He did still somehow manage it on the right hand side later on in the game so maybe he plays right in this game too? Seems a bit of a push. First goal in this game feels like it's gonna be massive. If we can somehow get it, we might be able to *** house it through the 90 minutes. If Bournemouth get it, I feel like they're gonna just pick us off one by one. If it was any other team playing these, I'd have it down as both teams to score. We have to show something significantly better than we did against Watford for that, though. 
    • Just in case anyone is interested Bray Wanderers are top of the first division in the league of Ireland after 12 games. The only team worth keeping an eye on after the mighty Boro of course 😃
