After the debacle of Charlton I'd like to see us go with something totally different from the norm, lets face it we're going to get mullered anway.

4-4-2 - Walton, Nyambe, Tosin, Lenihan, Bell, Rothwell, Travis, Johnson, Downing, Brereton, Gallagher.

Subs - Leutwiler, Mulgrew, Bennett, Chapman, Armstrong, Dack, Graham

No doubt it will be the same tired players, trying to play in whatever weird formation TM has them working on this week.

3-0 Fulham, so happy i booked trains for this when the fixtures were released¬†ūüôĄ

Left side of that back 4 looks very dodgy. The problem is Tosin and Lenihan are both right sided players - I can see all sorts of problems between Lenihan and Bell. 

Fulham had an unexpected setback on Saturday so will be going at us from the start. 3-1 Fulham

Going to this one with my two sons  .... used to live very close to Craven Cottage so it's a favourite ground to visit. 

Hoping we may scrape a draw, but not much more chance than that I fear.

I think our arses will be handed to us on a plate.

an early lead by Fulham that will leave us chasing the game leaving gaps everywhere result in in a 4-1 loss

The tombola will start rolling, 3 changes minimum with either Evans or Smallwood back in. Think we might just dig a result out...

Fulham 1  Rovers 2

Expect talk of impregnable mighty Fulham. Another huge.club for us to compete with with no mention they were well beaten and couldn't score against newly promoted Barnsley on Saturday.....

Pressure will be all on them so owt could happen but I expect 3-1 or 4-1 to them. Wouldnt surprise me to see us take the lead after a positive start before crumbling.

I think this is what Mowbray will go with, and I think we will get beaten comfortably.

The only bit of hope I have for getting anything from this game is the fact that Fulham lost at Barnsley and were apparently poor. That could work the other way though and they could come out flying. Player for player there are currently none I think we have better than Fulham. I expect Mowbray to be in full defensive mode and his team will reflect that.

I am travelling down and fully expect to be travelling back further disillusioned about Rovers and Mowbray in particular. I sincerely hope I am wrong but I expect a drubbing.

This would be my team. Yes, risky putting Downing left-back, but would he really be any worse defensively than Bell? Dack needs to get the finger out too or I would get Rothwell or Buckley in the middle. I am afraid Dack is now coasting as a championship footballer, happy enough with tipping away. I don't really rate Armstrong, but on the counter he is good and I think that's what this game will be.

If he starts with the same back 4 as he did against Charlton, he should be sacked on the spot.

Nyambe needs to come in for Bennett and Tosin, although a largely unknown quantity needs to replace Mulgrew.

Assuming Hart and Williams are still out injured, can't see anyone other than Bell in at left back. Not a fan of this idea of Downing being at left back.

------------------Walton

Nyambe--Lenihan--Tosin--Bell

------------Travis--Johnson

Armstrong----Dack-----Rothwell

---------------Graham

I would rather play 3 at the back than see Bell play.

I like that starting line-up. I would bring on Armstrong when Danny tires.

My personal selection for this one would be a proper 4-3-3, with Johnson sitting nice and deep controlling everything, Dack and Travis having freedom to press forward, Armstrong and Rothwell cutting in from the wings and Gallagher up-front and not out wide. 

I think Downing showed at Blackpool he's a better LB than Bell, and JRC for me should absolutely be given a go at RB (especially if Nyambe is seemingly no longer an option there)           

                Walton
JRC Lenihan Tosin Downing
               Johnson
             Travis Dack
Rothwell Gallagher Armstrong

Subs: Leutwiler, Bennett, Mulgrew, Buckley, Evans, Brereton, Graham

1400 sold so far. 

It’s a nice place for an away, but a good following nevertheless less at £30.

Like that team but I might switch out SG for BB. Think he deserved to start the other day after a promising preseason. Its funny that TM is usually slow to bring new players in the team but suddenly Gallacher is chosen over both our player of the season and BB in one fell swoop. BBs confidence could have been at a good level only to be knocked down again.

Superb effort yet again lets hope the performance is worthy we have a big mobile lad in Gallagher now so use him properly no excuse for not having him pressing and defending from the front.  Run him into the ground then replace with DG or BB 70 + mins scoreline pending of course.

Harry Arter (Parker's Brother In Law) has signed on loan. No official announcement yet though Fulham have tweeted a picture of him training with them.

1400 sold as of today is excellent if true....

Play your best players in their best positions Mowbray and reward that travelling support.Not holding my breath though.

1-1
