    Controversial I know but I'm going for a team of bruisers and fighters, with height and strength to bully them into submission
  • Very close to my XI that. Oshilaja at RWB is a great call. 

    Get Pearce and Sarr playing together in training until they work it out. I have been slagging Pearce a bit but we do need both to be able to play together.

    That said, I'd consider Oztumer for Pearce and drop Pratley back if I was confident of outplaying Millwall
  • :D:D:D

    I can't believe that the countdown to a win thread has disappeared.

    Leave it up and fall on your swords if it fails to materialise, which is a very unlikely outcome.

    Thank you for pointing it out BBW, wouldnt have noticed otherwise

    Today is going to be a good day!! :)

    You little scamp! You know very well that it is the most likely outcome.

    If history tells us anything .......
  • Think we will revert to 442 diamond for this one. 

    On that basis I would go.

    Solly Lockyer Pearce Purrington

    Only question mark really is whether you bring Aneke or Oztumer in for Kayal.
  • Our best performances seem to have been with Pratley at the back. Sarr is better in a back 3/5 than Pearce.   My team -

    Solly Lockyer Pratley Sarr Purrington

    History is written by the winners, and even I wouldn't trust us to tell the truth ;)

    Or maybe Sarr in for Pearce with Pratley dropping into a back 3. But I have a feeling it's a Pearce sort of game. We will need his leadership and fight.

  • Who will get sent off? Pearce is the easy guess  I'd go for Prateley!
  • I'd be disappointed if a Senior player is stupid enough to get themselves sent off - You'd hope they've got the sense to not let the occasion get to them

    If anyone were to go it would surely be someone like Gallagher or Cullen who act a little bit more rashly

  • I hear that they are trying to play football since Harris departed so maybe there won’t be as much hoof ball. What I don’t know is how they are now setting up, or indeed if they have the players to do that. I am sure they have at least a few, but a change in style can lead to a few mistakes and weaknesses.

    We are the third highest club fouled against in the Championship and Millwall are one of the lowest at committing them. Therefore I would suggest it maybe a game for skill and we try and outplay them.

    Ha ha - Beat me to it PBS. No matter who plays, once they put on our shirt against Millwall, they crumble.   
  • Oztumer was excellent against West Brom for me he has to start.  We also need Solly and Purrington to be full backs as that’s where their danger is, Jed Wallace in particular.  That said our midfield should have the possession, it’ll then be about a killer move from Oz or Gallagher.

  • I think the diamond makes sense with Pratley having the ability to drop in and make it a 5. I've noticed Bows seems to play Prats to the side of the diamond and Cullen holding but I think that may well change on Saturday with Prats able to do a better job screening Smith who will inevitably be a target for a few long balls.

    Let's be honest, we don't really have much else to choose from anyway. I think the starting 11 pretty much picks itself.

  • With no Taylor, Field, Williams, JFC, Hemed, Matthews and Page there aren't that many permutations available. We have gone from a potential outfield squad of 21 to just 14 (excluding the unexposed youngsters that is). 

    Really don't think Sarr will start after Sunday's performance and don't think Oshilaga will be preferred to Solly so, by my reckoning, it is only a question of who from Leko, Aneke or Oztumer will partner Bonne up top.
  • Pearce owes us after the Preston penalty.

    Lockyer or Gallagher or both to get sent off.
  • I'd be disappointed if a Senior player is stupid enough to get themselves sent off - You'd hope they've got the sense to not let the occasion get to them

    It's a legitimate concern though isn't it.
    Even if it happens to be someone getting over zealous trying to show that they won't be bullied/intimidated!
    Couple that with a flaky/anxious referee.
    My money is on Oshilaja if he plays  ;)
  • Didn't Solls get sent off last time we played there?
