Mowbray's preferred formations seem to be 4-3-3 (with 2 wing forwards, or call it 4-5-1 if you like), or 3-5-2 (with 2 wing-backs). In actual fact, formations are largely irrelevant - they're just numbers that change all the time depending on what is happening on the pitch. But I don't think conventional wingers, a la Ripley and Wilcox, fit into Mowbray's requirements. Have we ever been linked to any?

The players we signed last season we weren't linked with until the last minute. Some we didn't find out about until they signed. Don't believe the link-hype.

As for tactics it was always more 4-2-3-1, or 4-4-1-1. Dack was never in a midfield three alongside Evans and Smallwood. He was much further forward in general.

Appears #Rovers defender Derrick Williams didn't train with Republic of Ireland today because of a groin problem, putting his involvement against USA on Saturday in doubt.

I am sure some Americans will take this as a sign that he plans to switch to represent us later down the line.

Lenihan got himself an assist...also, Judge came on in 89th minute and scored in the 90th.
