I would go with following

Pears

Shotton Harold Friend

Howson Paddy Wing Tav Coulson

Britt Fletch

Not against Spence but we need to get back to being strong and that back 3 has good experience and 2 out the 3 are naturally centre backs. So hopefully that offers the solidity we need

Harsh on Sav but i think we need Tav in team as he carries the ball well from CM towards the strikers. And the link between midfield n forwards of late has been non existent.

I deliberated whether to play Ravel or Britt with Fletch. Gone with Britt in hope of extra firepower. I am hoping Tavs inclusion means creativity of Ravel is less needed. Nmecha n Rudy not done much of late. I accept neither has Britt but hoping thats down to him feeling his way back after injury. For all his faults his record in this league is good and i hope he can find the form he showed towards in last 6 games of last season where he went on a run.

Howson was bloody dreadful against Luton, one of the worst performers. I know he's out of position but he's had much better performances than that at centre-back against forwards who were actually capable of troubling him. I know Woodgate won't drop him but Spence has to play right wing-back for me. I'd probably put Howson into midfield if he's got to be anywhere as I thought Paddy, playing in midfield, was the worst of the worst.

My team would perhaps be:

Pears

Spence Shotton Moukoudi Friend Coulson

Saville 

Wing Morrison Tav

Fletcher

More than anything I hope we win. Not sure of what team he is going to put out or what formation he is going to play and I suppose it doesn't really matter if we get 3 points. It has been a complete waste of a season for me. I can normally see the positives in most things, even Pulis, but we just seem to be drifting into ever increasing mediocrity. 

Woodgate probably doesn't know what formation he's picking, perhaps he'll go 4-2-4 again and hope Barnsley's midfield play ***.

Howson has been playing out of position, but has been as effective as if he had been playing in midfield. I hope we offer Howsons wage to Ayala as he is probably the only one we should retain out of the out of contract players.

After the lack of creativity against Luton, if Morrison doesn't start, he'll be wondering what on earth was the point of him coming here.

Have to agree with the team Wilson has suggested and whist Howson has been MOM for quite a few games his form has dipped together with Paddy who seems to be on a different pitch to all the other.

TLF mentioned Britt being preferred, again have to say since his return, not once can I honestly say that I felt happy about it and that he had been a real miss (supple observation here) nor added anything at all to the team by his performances.

This is a must not lose game because at best will be ok with a point

Other games of interest today include:

PNE V Hull (Want a home win here)

Charlton V Luton (at best both will drop points with a draw but points will be dropped)

Swansea V Huddersfield (Home win again for me)

Birmingham V Sheffield Wednesday (interest due to possible points deduction)

Wigan V Millwall (Don't often want an away win)

Stoke V Cardiff (Come on you blues)

 

Looking at some of those fixtures it is clear we can give ourselves a real boost if we win and allowing a further distance of points between us and some of those below us

I'm never confident these days. Who knows what team or formation Woodgate will play, not sure he does either

    • As is typical of the FAI Robbie Keane signed a 4 year deal at the time that McCarthy signed a 2 year deal so he still has a contract. However it is understood that Stephen Kenny does not want him in the senior set up. Kenny wishes to work with Keith Andrews as his assistant and Damien Duff as coach.
    • Hello everyone, Hope you are all well, I see ROI¬†have bought forward¬† theyu21 boss appointment as boss of senior teams to replace Mick McCarthy. Does anyone know if that means Robbie Keane also left? Cant find anything other than FA thanking Mick and his staff for they work.
