So..... will Freeman and Eze be played on the wings or will one be a '10'?
Hopefully Eze in the middle and Cousins and Freeman out wide: that would be a step in the right direction at least. Cousins owes us a BIG performance.

The offish has it as a 4411 - much the same as we lined up against Millwall.

To be fair, this is what many people on this board were calling for - a system that would enable our creative players to play in their natural roles ...

It's better with Eze in the no 10 position but Cousins and Freeman are not natural wide players. We have wide players but SMc doesn't seem to rate them.

Is Cousins supposed to be a right sided wide midfield player, I thought he was s a central midfielder?

His best performances have come in the middle IMO though when I say best I mean less worse.

Cousins is a CM but he actually played quite well at RM against Millwall. Mind you the whole team did which always helps.

2 wingers on the bench , yet play a central midfielder out wide, don't make a lot of sense to me... But what do I know?

Great cross in from Bidwell; Cousins header just over the bar.

Couldn't tell if it was a good effort or a bad miss: good he was in the area though.

Is it me or is the Sky feed not in HD?

Still not getting enough bodies in to the box, Eze the most guilty of this.

Sounds like this game could be there for the taking. We need to be bolder and push on. Get the first goal and it could be a good night.

Who are doing the construction work in the stadium? Is that our lot making the banging noise?😊

Two teams playing without a lot of confidence: can see one goal winning this. Let's hope we score it!
