    Team Formation v Austria

    Once, I did it once ………. ………. or was it twice? Anyway; Peacock-Farrell McNair Cathcart Evans Lewis Dallas Norwood Davis Saville Ferguson Grigg

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    IMHO McNair had a good game, but isn't a right back. At the minute there are three centre mid places up for grabs, and he's in fourth place. Competition for places, something we're not really used to, is good though.

    Starting XI v Israel

    Fair point. After Saturday I just want to see if that midfield three can do it again. You also have to consider the fact that he's not getting a game at Southampton, so he could probably do with a run. I know it'll not work like this, but I'd make all my subs in one go at about the 60 minute mark. Change 3/4 players, and the shape, and play out the last half hour differently.

    You wouldn't start Davis? Here's me, wha?

    Starting XI v Israel

    Boyce in for Lafferty and you might be onto something there. There'll be an awful lot of unhappy people about Windsor if that happens. IIRC Sven's arsing about caused FIFA/UEFA to step in and limit subs in friendlies. I could be wrong, but I think the limit is five.

    Starting XI v Israel

    There may well be potential in a Lafferty Grigg combo, but Boyce and Grigg both did well when they came on yesterday. IMHO they both deserve a start.
  7. Bit of a conundrum this. I'd certainly like to keep the midfield three in place, and I'd like to start both Boyce and Grigg. That means a 3-5-2. Ordinarily that's fine, but is McAuley OK for it at the minute? I'm saying he is; Peacock-Farrell Cathcart McAuley Evans McLaughlin Lewis Saville Davis Norwood Boyce Grigg

    Post mortem

    It just goes to show, it's all about perceptions. I'd disagree with both of those points. I'm not saying that all of Dallas's crosses were great, but their defence was very good and dealt with most of what we threw at them. Last ditch at times, and with little help from a poor midfield, but they got in the way. As for passing it across the back. It happened a few times, as it does in most matches, but not to any great degree. The most noticeable thing for me was how often we nicked the ball off them high up the pitch and then proceeded to keep possession and with intent.

    It was nothing like that. Aye, for Luton.

    Post mortem

    What kick in the bollocks that was. I thought we were brilliant. I really can't remember us dominating a match, against a team of that supposed standard, in a hell of a long time. If ever actually. The three in central midfield really caught the eye. Olly Norwood, in particular, was a cut above. We lost because of a couple of careless moments, an inability to open up a decent defence/goalie, and simple old bad luck.

    Squad v Bosnia (and Israel)

    For Bosnia game; Peacock-Farrell C. McLaughlin Cathcart J. Evans Lewis McGinn Saville Davis Norwood Dallas Lafferty BPF is the outstanding 'keeper out of the three available to us. In the absence of Brunt, Lewis has to step up. McGinn instead of Ward, as wee Jamie isn't getting a kick at club level. Dallas ahead of Jones, to give a bit of experience down that left hand side. If you want to play Grigg, it's 3-5-2; Peacock-Farrell Hughes Cathcart J. Evans McGinn Saville Davis Norwood Dallas Lafferty Grigg

    Bosnia not taking their allocation?

    Israel (H) friendly - Sept 11

    They should boycott it if they feel that strongly.

    They're talking bollocks. How do they know it's at capacity when the renewal period still has a couple of weeks to run? Not everyone will have renewed yet (I only did ours tonight) and there's no way every single BBer will renew. Ours is down one for a start.
