Snowflake Royal For me, this one is about just not losing, similar to Millwall. Lose and Millwall doesn't really mean anything, we're on a truly dreadful run of form and likely nosediving. Get a draw and it's a very good result for a team struggling badly. And it shows good signs we've turned a corner and can start building again. Win and obviously that's great, confidence will flow back. But it is not going to be an easy game in the slightest.

Really feel Olise has to start. Ejaria is a bit of a conundrum, can be mercurially brilliant, but slows everything down so much. Think he's got to go central and Olise left, even though I prefer Olise in the middle than on the wing. Other than that, unchanged side. Semedo has a lot of talent, but he just doesn't grab the game and dominate. He goes missing too much. I think he's a good option off the bench, but not really a starter if the team aren't already playing well, getting results and with confidence up.


Imho, it would be a blessing if all three went missing for good.

Just hope that our fans get behind the team as much as they’ve got behind Blue Collar Food.

Our fans really like their food don’t they :lol:

If we have top 6 ambitions this is a game that we should win.
With what is available am happy with the line-up.
It looks as though he has sussed Aluko.

The right side imo. Semedo is a good bench option.

Keith Andrews talking about Olise off the ball....

Standard pundit cliche flair player bullshit. Olise is one of the hardest workers off the ball :lol:

Yeah, he was suspect when he came back from injury but he’s missed a lot of football recently. On form he’s one of the best right backs in the league and certainly offers more going forward than Holmes.

Longer term id want swift, Yiadom/Esteves in there but on current form it’s the best we have

Annoying that Puscas still isn’t fit

For the most part. He does have the occasional lapse, but yeah you'll often see him charging 30 yards and getting stuck in.

His issue is more getting a bit casual with some of the more straightforward passes and missing his mark by a yard or two IMO.

Araruna for Holmes, be my only change.

Bench of Southwood, McIntyre, Gibson, Yiadom, Swift, Semedo, Puscas, Baldock, Tetek ( :wink: )

Yeah that’s fair. Certainly his those long charging runs do stick in the memory.
