Preston Away

Fuck it I say, time to try something new, because what we've been doing isn't working and I'd say Rankin-Costello has more than earned his chance just like Buckley.

Walton
JRC Tosin Lenihan Williams Cunningham
Travis Johnson
Armstrong Graham Downing

Dack, Gallagher, Bennett, Buckley, Rothwell, Nyambe, Leut.

Amidst various problems with that team, no Holtby at all?

Yeah fair point, I wouldn't start him at Preston but massive oversight on my bench there.

Why not start him?  The rest have been crap overall. 
 

Name me one team that plays successfully on the break that has a big slow lump like DG in his own up front.....

Entirely expect to get spanked in this one. Don't think Preston are all that, but they're in great form and we're in piss poor form. Actually be happy if we get a draw (depending on the circumstances...)

God knows why you wouldn't start him.

Just wouldn't. Midfield needs Travis and Johnson and I don't think he's warranted starting in Dack's position yet. I also don't see him as a winger.

Yep. On paper they should hammer us. But, as we all know, football is a funny old game.

I think we might get something from this one.

We will play Bennett at right back Evans in midfield  and Gallagher  on the wing and get our ass handed too us

I would say on paper with the players at each teams disposal we should beat them....our manager massively swings it in their favour however. 

Id try and go for our paciest possible team and hit them on the break rather than the slow boring easy to defend against tactics Melton Mowbray seems to enjoy. I am assuming cunningham is out. 

                     Walton

Nyambe   Tosin   Lenihan  Williams

               Travis  Johnson 

Rothwell         Dack            Armstrong

                   Gallagher

No idea what the formation will be but at the very least we need a fighting performance and a sense of urgency.

A positive set up and performance is paramount a bad result might be forgiven if it isn't the usual surrender monkey crap that keeps haunting this team.  No need for it with what's at the disposal now and in particular midfield were Preston seem tigerish yet depending on the ridiculous rotation selection we often appear tame.

Fight fire with fire not a feather duster.

Obviously anything can happen, but with the way we are currently going and they way they’re currently going, we are on target for a mauling....

In local derbies the form book often goes out the window the desire of who wants it more for their fans and club is a great leveller.

So players , manager and yes FANS step up to the plate let this be a pivotal point in the season please.

Yeah if it carries on as it is.

I can still see Mowbray going for a draw and everyone saying before i'll be happy with a point then going bananas that we didn't go for it afterwards !!!

I think we need a new system for the team and i would like to see us try a good old 4 1 2 1 2 which i think could work quite well for us. 

 

Would love to see: 

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

Bennett---Lenihan--Tosin---Cunningham (If not fit Williams) 

-------------------Travis------------------------

----------Johnson----Holtby-----------------

------------------Dack----------------------

--------Gallagher-------Armstrong-------

 

I think Gallagher size and heading winning capability with Armstrong speed could be a great combo!

Cunningham out for the season. 

I think this should force TMs hand to play 3 at the back. If we play Bell we are essentially playing 10 men - I've never seen a worse left back at Rovers. 

                                                         Walton

                                          Tosin    Williams    Lenihan

                                Bennet                                        Downing

                                                    Travis   Holtby

                                         Rothwell   Armstrong   Dack

Looks like we are putting everyone down the left hand side to strengthen up in Cunningham's absence. Good thinking!!

I predict 3.8k away fans.

 

 

There might even be some plastic Preston fans there too, especially bearing in mind their beloved Liverpool aren't playing until the next day.
