It is a serious answer.....I think we need a keeper a left back a couple of midfielders and some pace up front. Given that we haven’t got them we can fiddle around the edges as much as we want but if you haven’t got 11 players who are good enough you have an impossible dilemma
what ido believe is that you pick players who can do things that others can’t...so for me the likes of Maouche play while the likes of Mills are ten a penny.......given what we have got I would have to pick Woods Hamer Wheater Pidge CMJ. Smith Maouche Mc Cann Dearnley and Rowe ...take your pick for the 11 th man...
as for how how we play....we aren’t keeping many clean sheets with that team so we are going to have to score a minimum of 2 and so I would give licence to Smith and Maouche to express themselves in the final third ......I would tell Rowe not to bother chasing down the full backs because he won’t catch them anyway and is then 40 yards from where he might be dangerous. Dearnley is interesting and I think there is half a chance that he might turn out to be the jewel in the crown
but as I say we are at least 4 short of being top end competitive
