I just hope despite a lot of movement that we're able to field a similar team, one that's gone through the pre-season and isn't destabilised by the late window business. I'd still keep Howson in the team for this one at RB despite signing Dijksteel now.

Howson stays in for this week for me as well, Dijksteel coming in too late to start for me maybe some minutes later on in the game for him.

I think i’d keep it similar to the Luton line up - one change I might go for is Bola for Fletcher. Harsh to drop him after scoring, but I’d prefer to see Coulson further up the pitch and Bola in at left back.

The rest I would leave the same, unless Fry or Friend is fit enough to start over Shotton.

Obviously, if anyone leaves then it might force a change.

I also think this is a tough game, Brentford are always a tricky side to play as they have some real talent going forward. I think we can win it, but wouldn’t be unhappy with a draw. Still need to give this new style some time to bed in!

Losing Sawyers and Maupay is a huge dent to their attack and it's probably too early for the new additions to make an impact as we saw in the first game. It's a good time to play them in my eyes.

They could very well lose Benrahma to Villa before Thursday aswell, it looks like they might manage to hold onto Watkins but losing the other 3 could blunt their attacking prowess considerably until the new boys settle in.

Unfortunately whenever I think it's a good time to play a team we always end up losing ?

It’s probably a good time to play boro too so that evens things out.

Would love it - their loss to Birmingham was against the run of the game though.

I reckon it'll be a good game but we'll get beat 3-1, come slightly too early for us Brentford I fear as we need a bit more time to improve defensively 

I'd like to see                                       

-----------------Randolph

Dijksteel--Ayala--Friend--Coulson

--------Wing--Clayton--Howson

Browne---------Britt---------Fletcher

But imagine that Howson will be RB with McNair in the middle, I'm happy for McNair to play midfield but think we need a specialist Right Back vs Brentford's wingers so would rather Dijksteel come straight in for us 

Woody'll probably have Johnson starting too

When is Fry back?

To be fair to Johnson after last week he has to play.

    • Good for you Blanco, hope your bang on mate. 
    • Wing and Tav's shooting last season was excellent from outside the box, not saying they shouldn't be in the box supporting the strikers, but you don't shoot you don't score, you hit the ball well enough and on target the keeper has to do something about it. Its down to confidence Wing and Tav have the ability to cause problems from outside the box, its just one option of many.
