Who should play v Portsmouth?

Post by White Duck » Sun Feb 03, 2019 8:56 pm

Really hope we change it around a bit and freshen up the team on Tuesday: I'd go with:-

Lumley
Furlong
Leistner
Hall
Bidwell
Scowen
Luongo
Manning
Freeman
BOS
Wells

Ingram, Kakay, Lynch, Cousins, Eze, Wszolek, Smith

Hall in for Lynch, Manning in for Eze, BOS in for Pav. Freeman to move inside and Manning on the left. Smith caused them issues last time but I wouldn't start him but bring him in if necessary 2nd half.

I agree with most of your choices and would go one further - start with Smith for Wells. He panicked their defence last time. Wells could probably use a bit of a rest though he would need to come on for the last 15 minutes as Smith doesn't last the 90.

Yup, I agree......Eze and Pav should be rested ( not dropped ! ), I think we have to persist with Scowen. Smith won't do 90 minutes so it's a matter of whether to start him and bring on Wells later or use him as “impact sub”
I'm sure SM will pick a completely different team though.

I think starting with Smith would be too much of a risk: I'd go with our normal tactics from the start with Wells then bring on Smith when their defenders are tired to give them something else to think about. I wonder if Hemed is close to being fit enough for the bench?

Hemed must be close to returning? Better option than Smith.

Rest Eze, but full strength apart from that.

Our season hangs on this game.

He's just got back from Asia Cup. I'm not suggesting Cousins is a better player, just thought Mass would be more in need of a rest and more important for us in league

He didn’t play much in the Asia Cup, and we should definitely play him in tonight’s game.
