Edited On: 11/10/2018 12:04What do you want to see after the break?
 
 
Are you happy with continuing like we have been or would you like change? If change what would it look like?

I personally want to see a return of the progressive 5-3-2.

I'd like to see Fry come back in alongside the other 2.
I'd like to see Mcnair given a chance at right back.
I'd like to see Besic/Clayton, Howson and Wing/Downing in the middle.
I'd like to see Braithwaite and Britt / Hugill up top.

I'd have Chapman and Tavernier on the bench so that we can change to an aggressive 3-5-2 if chasing a game.

What are your thoughts in general and does my plan not make you way more excited then what we have seen since the previous break?

Agree with most of that. I've only seen McNair at right wing back once and he was horrendous. You cant make a judgement off one game but just based off that game I wouldnt play him there.

...............Britt...............
............Braithwaite............
......Wing...Clayton..Howson.......
McQueen..Flint..Fry..Ayala..Shotton

Pointless sacrifycing a midfielder (where we are weak anyway) to accommodate an extra centre half. This system was brought in to nulify the threat from Leeds & West Brom. The majority of the teams we play in this league do not deserve the respect of us having to play 3 centre halves and I would be very disapointed if we were to revisit that system.

We need to practice relentlessy in training of any one of ... Besic ..Howson...Saville...Or McNair... operating as a purposeful attacking centre midfielder...(ie Gerrard, Lampard). Their roll would only be to join in with the attack and win balls higher up the pitch.... and in return...we would expect goals and assists to be in double figures. The other 2 midfield players would share the defensive duties.

Agree with a lot of your points, not sure we need to go back to 5 at the back because when it's 5 defenders naturally they all drop too deep and we become too defensive. For me we need

Someone in the side who can take a decent corner with a bit of pace. We are wasting the threat we have by just floating balls in and expecting Ayala or Flint to put all the power on it from behind the penalty spot

Goals coming from long throws and if they don't then McNair in for Shotton and Fry in for Flint or Ayala as they are better footballers so should be in if the throw isn't working. Also stop trying to make Friend try a long throw, he looks like he's going to pull something every time and only just gets it into the box.

Finally, Howson to be allowed to play in the middle instead of having to go left or right midfield, especially when chasing a game. Leave Braithwaite on one wing, Downing on the other and go two up top for 20 mins, see what happens

Good points Conway big Nige...

I'm thinking more attacking 5-3-2.. Aggressive full backs given the freedom to really get forward.

That's why I'd start mcnair and maybe even Mcqueen in those positions. Footballers first defenders second.

I believe we played that way against Sheff utd and steam rolled them in fact we were that way mostof the time before the break no?

With our strikers I would hope Boro could stay with the leaders until January and then jettison them all and buy 2 decent goal scorers.

I think if we want to get the best out of Braithwaite, then he needs to play up front with someone else.

I don't think he's ever as effective as when he plays off the left wing. He's not involved enough and seems to drift in and out of games.

3-5-2 would suit us until the transfer window reopens and a winger can be targeted. I'd like to see McQueen given a run at LWB.

I'd pick one from Clayton and Besic. Against Sheff Wed I'd start with Clayton, as Besic will have been on international duty.

I'd also play Downing and Howson as the central midfielders with Shotton RWB. Again, as others have been on international duty.

I'd have Wing on the bench.

I'd start Assombalonga again.

I'd want the team to start on the front foot like we did at Ipswich. Many teams in the league won't be able to handle those fast starts and most won't be able to come back from it.

Id also like to see McNair for Shotton.
Id like to see Clayton always play the DM role.
Id love Wing to get another run and take the dead balls.
Howson, Wing and Downing in front of Clayton.
Dont pick Besic or Savile until they earn it or those 4 fail.
Give Braithwaite and Assombolnga a run until Jan. Leave Hugill on the bench as plan B.
Have some youthful flair and energy on the bench.
Let Gestede prepare for a Jan move.
Id like a look at least at McQueen in the left back role.

I think I agree with all of what Indeedido said in his first post. I'm optimistic Saville will come good in time but he should've had to earn his place. He isn't playing well enough to start ahead of Wing, IMO. Neither is Besic.

I wouldn't be averse to us switching to a back three if it means going back to our early season form(and performances), obviously.

Hugill dropped from the squad. He's atrocious and I'd rather have Fletcher on the bench than him or Gestede.

Tav, Wing and Fry back in the squad and if we play 5 at the back I want Fry to start and at least one of McNair or McQueen. Pulis won't drop Friend though as he's captain. And he somehow still believes that Shottons abysmal throws are a weapon.
