Starting XI v Israel

Recommended Posts

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

Definitely think Boyce and Grigg have to start. Would like to try and get Jones a start but not sure that will happen playing 2 up front unless it's a 4 4 2 which seems unlikely

Lafferty and grigg please

Boyce isn't good enough, Lafferty was hopeless yesterday but still the best option for the big pressure games.

I think Laff and Grigg could work with supply from Jordan Jones, worth a try on Tues night.

I understand the attachment to big Laff, but Boyce did more in 20 minutes yesterday than Laff did for the other 70.

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.

Think McAuley has already left the squad to go back to Rangers. 

Smith, Boyce and Grigg deserve a start, Jones and McNair may get one too. 

There will be a few changes and a lot of subs on Tuesday.

...or McLaughlin? In which case

 

----------------------BPF/ Carson

--------CML/PMN--Cathcart--JEvans

Dallas--Norwood--CEvans--Saville--Lewis

----------------------Grigg--Boyce

Hopefully a look at in Smith in a back 3, Whyte on the right, Jones left and Washington up front

Michael has already said he'll make a few changes but not whole sale. Not sure if he will go with two up front myself although would like to see it myself. With the like of McLaughlin, J Evans, Davis not getting loads of club game time, i can see them playing.

 

I think it will be close to this:

 

                                       BPF

McLaughlin      J Evans Cathcart   Lewis

Whyte   C. Evans Davis Saville      Dallas/J. Jones

                                    Grigg

For me it’s about experimentation and we have nothing to learn about Laffs, other than he is either great or crap. I’m not sure Will and Liam are the answer but they deserve the chance to prove they are.

Also fewer short corners - they are more predictable than a hangover after a night on the booze.

                                            Carson

              McNair                 Evans            Cathcart

    Smith              Saville          Davis          Norwood      Lewis

                             Lafferty            Grigg

Back 3 McAuley won't feature he's back at Rangers, hope McNair can fill in there as Purplehaze says as we are short of CB's, One half each for Carson & McGovern

Smith deserves a start, and Lafferty/Grigg up front we need 2 strikers, not isolate Lafferty

Loads of changes in 2nd half, Jones, McGinn, Dallas, Washington, Ward, Boyce, Evans, Whyte, & Ferguson getting on at some stage

Lafferty sat out training today after his injury on Saturday. I'd be surprised if he was risked.
