Starting Eleven

Recommended Posts

Do we go with the same starting 11 as V Estonia or should there be any changes, Big G is available i think Corey Evans & White are still out?

Would love the 3-5-2 then McAuley could fit in

Lafferty need support either Magennis, McGinn or Boyce

Im going with this but im sure MON will stick with a 4-5-1 formation

                   BPF

  McAuley Cathcart J. Evans

Ferguson Davis Saville McNair Lewis

            Lafferty McGinn

Need Ferguson on for corners & set pieces & Big G will add another threat

sorry to drop Jones (should get on 2nd half if needed) and Magennis/Dallas/Smyth if required

Can’t see MOn dropping McGinn or Jones or changing defense as it seemed to work.

big Josh in for Laff only change I’d see

depends on the formation, if its a back 4 he won't

I'd imagine Michael will only change the starting XI if he has identified something in the way Belarus play that warrants it.

IMHO the only arguable change is Magennis for Lafferty. I wouldn't do it though. Those who beat Estonia deserve another go.

Maginnis came on with Estonia chasing the game and leaving gaps at the back, and whilst he looked OK it was a completely different set up to what Lafferty faced i.e. two central defenders on laffs for most of the game. Lafferty also set up the first goal. IMO it would be very strange to drop Lafferty for Maginnis.

would like to see them both play but its very unlikely

quite agree while Laffs had no clear cut chances, he did run his backsde off, then when behind Estonia had more gaps at the back to exploit which Josh almost did

TBH thats the worst i have seen him play for us thought he was way off the pace and also looked likely to pick up a card or worse, bit of a long shot but Boyce could be a good shout  thought he looked comfortable up front against Bosnia.

Lafferty ran about like a headless chicken chicken frankly. Did well with the goal and a few other moments but how anyone can praise that performance is beyond me. Shouldn`t be near the starting team.

I`d have Boyce or Josh on before him.
