Some hilarious comments on the game tonight. Some folk just really can't help themselves it seems. Suggesting that the players don't care, aren't up for it, all that bullpoo... We are down to pretty m

I never expected to be as close as this. Its all a bonus. If we run out of steam and finish 8th or 9th its still been a successful season in terms of my expectations and the adversities Cocu has exper

A better ref and things might have gone more our way (I mean before that appalling red card). The booking on Whittaker? The boot in the nuts for Evans. The screaming for a push for a penalty - if not

Roos, Bogle, Evans (Wisdom?!), Clarke, Forsyth, Rooney, Bird, Knight, Holmes, Sibley, Hector-Ingram. 

Actually tempted with Zoon, think he did actually make a bit of difference. Knight simply isn’t a winger and Holmes has looked way off the pace since the season restarted. This is presuming Martin is out with his cracked rib too.

This would be my choice although would be equally happy with zoon instead of Whittaker also perhaps a spot on the bench for triallist

I feel the time may just be right to unleash Morgan Whittaker on the Championship.  24 goals and 16 assists for the u18 & u23s last season.  I know some are going to say he's not ready but there were lots of us thinking the same about Bird in the autumn.

The transition into the team will be easier for him with Bird, Sibley and Knight already in the team to support him and I have to say I think he's a player.

If Holmes does play, I hope to goodness that Cocu asks him to look for the little cut back to the blond haired lad standing on his own or running in to space.  He missed that ball more than once today.

I agree and I actually don’t think he’s the brightest footballer (football brain) I just think he can give us more than Knight currently.

Think the team should be

          Hamer

Bogle.  Evans.   Clarke.  Lowe

       Shinnie Bird.  Rooney 

    Holmes.         Sibley       

                 Martin 

we need 3 in midfield for this one Holmes and Sibley running at there defence.Holmes needs  to up his game.

Get the full backs forward is the key and that’s why we need the extra midfielder come on you rams.😃

I think both may be best suited in a slightly more central role.  I do think Duane currently offers more (in direct comparison with Jason) from the centre but he just doesn't look the same player out wide.  I'd bring him on second half for Sibley (once he's completed his second hat trick).

Wide forward spot is free, up to him to grab it.

It would be nice to have genuine pace up there too, give WBA something they perhaps don't expect.

Think we might need to try something a bit different due to injuries/suspensions. WBA's wingers are bloody quick, hence bringing Lowe in for Forsyth. Martin might only manage 45mins, games are coming pretty thick and fast, but I'd give him the start and bring Hector-Ingram on at half-time depending on how things were going. As good as Knight is, he isn't a winger... and neither is Holmes... so I'd give FloJo the start. Whittaker in too on the other side of midfield.

Hamer

Bogle, Evans, Clarke, Lowe

Rooney, Bird

Whittaker, Sibley, Jozefzoon

Martin

Asides from bringing in Lowe possibly, I'm not sure what massive changes we can make?

I don't think Flo offers that much tbh as as WBA aren't sit behind the ball merchants we'll get more space for Holmes, Sibley knight and Martin to operate in. I get it that Holmes and Knight weren't great today

5 subs gives up the options to change things.

Is there any chance Wisdom will be fit? Against WBA 

                   Hamer 

Bogle Davies Clarke Forsyth    

             Bird.    Shinnie 

                   Rooney

Really not sure about Holmes out wide, he doesn't want to be there and doesn't work hard enough. Prefer Knighty.

Changes:

Malone was outstanding here last season and must be raring to go

Wisdom if fit do offer a better defensive option than Bogle

Shinniesta has looked on it in his brief time on the field. Will offer greater energy than Rooney who needs a rest

Zoon offers pace and if Cocu can ignite a rocket up his arse he could be our secret weapon. Fresh and I just have the feeling it's ZOONTIME

Sibley and Holmes can combine to use their youth and energy to switch positions fluidly. The latter offers so much more when central

I think I would deffo bring in Shinnie for this game, also add Lowe for pace, and maybe Whittaker for Holmes. 

         Hamer

Bogle. Evans.   Clarke.   Liwe

            Bird.    Shinnie

                  Rooney

Knight.        Martin.      Whittaker

Think this will give us a solid platform, to work from, get the full backs forward and let's have a bit of width, if Wisdom is ready then drop Evans. Big game, but WBA, will be under alot of pressure to get the 3 points, it could work to our advantage. COYR.
