    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.
  2. 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

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I've had no word, and my details of Ticketmaster are still our old seats. That said, I'm not sure how they could start reallocating seats until they see how many people renew.

    I hope Vlad isn't reading this. You'll end up with a with a radioactive umbrella up your jacksy.

    Here's tomorrow's forecast for you.

    I hope you're wrong about Grigg, but I'm beginning to wonder. Brunt will be back in the squad come September. He'd be mad to give up now.

    Central America tour

    We've given Jordan Jones a second chance, so the least we can do is afford McGeehan the same. Lets just put it down as a youthful indiscretion and move on. For a while I was putting this down to circumstance. There always seemed to be a plausible reason. It's beginning to stretch credibility a bit now though. It's a funny one. I'm not entirely convinced that Hodson is the answer, so why not give Smith a go? Mystic Clint predicts that Carson and Peacock-Farrell will get a full match each. Hazard will be along for the experience, with is OK. It wouldn't be OK to bring McGovern along under those circumstances. It is.

    Me too but, to be fair, Gavin deserves to be called up ahead of me. There's a big difference between picking an IL player, and picking a player who is probably on his way to England.

    Talk (in the BelTel admittedly) of Gavin Whyte being included.

    Oooooooh. I thought Twisted Sister were bad, but twisted testicle sounds much worse.

    Is Dirk Bogarte in that?

    Central America tour

    We play Panama on a Tuesday, and Costa Rica on a Sunday. With something like a five hour time difference (behind us) I can't see the kick offs being 19:45 our time. Certainly not for the Tuesday match anyway.

    Forestside? FFS, you could walk it.
