Bubble blowers don’t scare us, even on our worst days we are more than capable of doing these, yes they have upped their game recently but old bog eyes has never beaten us as a manager and I expect that trend to continue,
The odds will have course shortened since we have a make shift central defence, however, we do have players who can ‘fill in’ temporarily and have enough nous to hamper attacks from the east enders, meanwhile at the other end there is no question that their defence will be under severe scrutiny from our trophy laden trio and I’d hazard a guess that we’d most definitely come out on top for goals scored,
So how do we set up ? If we go three at the back(unlikely) I’d have Hendo in between young Rhys & Gomez, with Thiago if fit, & Gini as two 6’s, Trent & Robbo flanking them with the three amigos up top, but instead of Bobby, I’d slot Jota in instead......
Williams Hendo Gomez
Jota Salah Mane
Something like that, maybe, Hendo being Virgil commanding the back line,
But more likely we’ll see this.....
Trent Williams Gomez Robbo
Milner Hendo Gini
Salah Bobby Mane
If Thiago is fit he’s in & Jimmy out....
What’s important here is getting the three points no matter what, sh*t, I’d even advocate parking a f***in bus and hitting them on the counter, like what some do to us, but I’d like to believe we are better than that, and we are, but when the chips are down you do what you can to win, temporarily of course !
