He lost the ball on halfway. For most teams that doesn't automatically result in a goal for the other team. 

7 players in the match day squad who have previously, or currently play in our youth set up. ?

Kaminski has the feel of an accomplished keeper. Very much in control...

I've had time to think about pre-season and the Leicester game. Holtby playing deep is certainly his role.Unfortunately, it's taken the ball away from Travis and a position he likes to operate from and he's pissed. Armstrong is either pissed in general or just pissed at Brereton. Armstrong could have sent Brereton away on a break and Brereton opted to shoot with the goalkeeper committed instead of pulling the ball  back to the penalty spot where, I think, Armstrong was waiting. Brereton received the 'death glare'.

Formations: there was the amorphous blob, the 451 and a 43? that formed leaving a bemused Bradley Johnson uncertain where he should stand. Seems Mr J has blotted his copybook with the team. I think Danny Graham was the glue that held the dressing room together.

The leftovers from the relegated team;the one Mowbray couldn't keep up. Gallagher and Evans. Then: Williams, Bennett, Wharton, Mulgrew, Lenihan and Nyambe. Mowbray's contribution is Bell. In the 4 games this pre-season/EFL Cup Bell played LB, we conceded 5 goals. In the one game he wasn't LB, we didn't concede.

That we have defenders who can't head is a real badge of shame for our former CBs, now coaches, Mowbray and Venus.

That all means I've changed my formation and team. I'm going 4231

             Kaminski

Nyambe Lenihan(c) Williams Wharton

           Travis       Evans

JRC       Brereton         Brennan

             Armstrong

Subs Eastham, Dolan, Chapman, Buckley, Davenport, Mulgrew, Bell

Williams has been busineslike in pre-season. Wharton allows for a back 3 with Williams having licence to roam. I'm handing debuts to Kaminski and Brennan. I know full well that Mulgrew isn't going to make the bench. Since I've not got Holtby or Johnson in the squad, Mulgrew represents experience and left sided cover. Bell makes the bench, because otherwise Bennett would. If Evans comes off,JRC drops back and Dolan comes on. Buckley for Brereton is my other planned substitution.

I put our win percentage at 30%and accept I may be being optimistic.

I'll give you a million to one against that being our starting line up.

I agree that it won't be the squad or the starting XI. I had 46 starting XI's that did not agree with Mowbray's last season. I see no reason for the streak to end.

There was a time last season when if you could guess just six of the starting line up you were doing really well.
