v Brentford (A) - Matchday Thread


Recommended Posts

Marshall

Byrne Davies Clarke Forsyth

Bielik Shinnie

Waghorn Knight Jozwiak

Stretton

Waghorn in for Holmes is the obvious call. Duane was very poor today, and Waghorn changed the game when he came on, adding some physicality on the right. Up front is the more difficult decision. Kazim looked tired and out of sorts today, so may need a rest midweek. The trouble is, we don’t have many options who can replace him. He’s our only senior striker. That leaves us looking towards the young lads for someone to step up. Stretton has obviously been on the brink of breaking through, so may well be worth a go from the start to see what he can do. It’s a gamble, but he’s been doing very well in the U23’s, so may turn out to be a star.

Don't really want to change a winning team and whilst I know Brentford are a strong attacking team I don't want to play two defensive mids again - Bielik is more than sufficient in that role. Big Col only dropped to give him a break - looked exhausted most of today. Holmes had a poor game and should be replaced by Waghorn or Ibe.

Good selection. Could Ibe play as the striker?

Neither Byrne, Davies or Forsyth had bad games today. My reasoning is that Brentford pose totally different challenges. We will need Wisdom and Buchanan to defend well. Byrne is suspect against trickier customers like Canos, Da Silva and Henry.

Similarly, Forss and especially Toney are too tricky for our Curtis. Evans isn’t my idea of a centre half but he’s better on the ground.

CKR gets another go for me because it’s a tough away game and you need tough men, at least to start the game and gee everyone up.

If it’s not working for him he can be hooked early in the second half. We have plenty of speedier options.

Brentford are a diffent kind of team to Millwall.

I thought today's team was the right team to play against Millwall.

I think we'll see quite a few changes again - call it rotation, call it picking a team to win the match you're going to play.

A week ago I'd have not given us a chance in this one, and I still think our chances are slim, but I'm hopeful we'll at least not be an easy  three points for them.

Don’t want to change a winning team but think we need to bring Shinnie out and get more creativity in so I’ve gone with Sibbo but Bird could easily come in to, I picked Sibley because I think we need movement and pace for Beilik  to pass through the lines to.

Other than that it’s a close call between Davies and Wisdom. Davies influence and defensive ability is really underrated, that said his passing could be exposed in this game. Plumbed for Davies to keep a settled defence but wouldn’t argue If wizzy was picked!

This is the trickiest selection dilemma Rooney has had so far.

We have one today and probably everyone except maybe Holmes deserves to keep their place. However Brentford pose a different challenge to Millwall and CKR needs a rest.

I think we will go with

Marshall

Byrne Wisdom Clarke Buchanan

Knight Bielik Bird

Sibley Waghorn Jozwiak

Byrne. Davies. Clarke  Buchanan

              Bielik.   Shinnie

     Waghorn.  Knight.   Jozwiak

                  Kazim-Richards

 

Davies still our best defender, you don't need pace if you're pinned back. You don't need to pass so long as you can find Bielik with a simple ball.

Buchanan has overtaken Fozzy.

 Waghorn works hard and carries more of a goal threat than Duane.

The rest of the side picks itself.

Great that we have real options on the subs bench too.

That team with Ibe in the starting 11 looks plenty good enough to stay up, hopefully he can start pretty soon.
