Starting line up v Holland

Recommended Posts

It's a shame that Lewis is out. Don't think anyone's suggested it yet but I'd go for Flanagan at left back. I recall he played there previously for Burton and he's better defensively than the other main options - Ferguson or Dallas. It also means Dallas can be played further forward so we don't end up weakening two areas of the team. 

I'd go for the following team:

                                BPF

      Smith   Cathcart    J Evans    Flanagan  

Whyte   McNair     Davis       C Evans     Dallas

                                 Magennis

 

McGinn unlucky to miss out but I'd like to see Whyte get a chance. Think Corry Evans would help us more defensively than Saville. Whoever plays up front will have a thankless task but at least Josh offers a physical threat and may be useful with set pieces at both ends of the pitch

Seen it with Smith at lb and Dallas at rb and also with Smith at rb and fergie at lb. I'd rather have the first one I think

Laff needs one of the biggest performances of his career if we are to do anything tonight, hopefully Michael has got inside his head for this one, another Greece away performance would be the ticket.

That’s the more likely option you’d think. I’d see at as Smith replacing Lewis and Ferguson replacing McGinn.

We were in a similar situation against the Germans going in at half time 0-0 we have to make sure we start the second half of this game better than we did against the Germans and then who knows.

Keep the faith and believe :owc:

Dallas has played LB before for Leeds.

Anyway, the formation we have seems to be working so far.

Ref is starting to give them every decision now and letting their players get away with pressuring him
