    Their balls into our box with our defence gives me the fear. I don't think we will keep a clean sheet. Our best defence is attack. Just get in about them from minute 1

    I think the huns will aim for a draw, they don't need to win it and we 100% need to win. Especially since we'll have yet another game in hand after next weekend.

    4 4 2 diamond it is for the following reasons

    Matching up against them hasn't worked. We've looked weak centrally, wide and nowt up front. 3 at back didn't work either.

    Our 4 vs their 3 centrally gives us a good chance of dominating the central areas.

    2 up to means they have to leave 2 vs 2 at the back OR a fullback has to stay back nullifying their creativity. They could also sit a midfielder deep but again it just gives us more ground with the 4 midfielders.

    We will get to counter. Since the diamond was introduced its worked in games where we are favourite. Tomoro we will technically be underdogs and they will be expected to try and win the game. The midfield passes forward. Can carry the ball and the strikers can move. It will add another dimension to our play.

    At the back we have sorro to assist and their forward players come inside anyway so that area can be set as a trap to win the ball back and then get at them on the counter.

    We need to let the chips fall where they may defensively and try and protect the keeper.

    For the first time in a while we have a system that means they have to worry about us and adapt to how we have lined up. That's why I'm lookin forward to it. As long as Lennon can stay strong and keep the same midfield and front 2 we can and will force them to adapt.

    We aren't going to fix our weak areas until players are signed but let's actually get at them tomoro and give them something to think about.

    The bench is very strong as well and players like MOI, Johnson and rogic can all make a difference if and when they are needed.

    The vision I have for tomoro is from 10 years, Ledley launching a ball into the space 10 years ago and Samaras exploitating the lack of pace and rounding McGregor and scoring.

    Just work as a team defensively and expose the weaknesses when the chances arrive. I expect us to show up and be brave and strong and their arses to collapse when we get at them.

    Anybody who thinks a draw 'isn't the end of the world' are deluded. If we don't win its done

    Ludicrous and game losing if we start Brown. If Slippy is to be believed and not playing mind games, Arfield and Jack will not be available. That leaves the Huns with Davis to sit in the middle, he is their Brown, passed his best and slow. Play our in form midfield and we will over run them

    My feeling too, unfortunately. Either that or he will drop soro, play brown and still play one upfront. I think he will bottle it and drop Griffiths. Hope I'm wrong

    Please * no. Thats not because I have a massive downer on Broony its because we have to play Griffiths....we want to win the * game dont we? So play players that can score goals, its not difficult.

    My feelings have changed somewhat

    If their midfield is without KeNt, ArFiELd and JacK - we can win the midfield and win the game!

    Soro, Turnbull, McGregor should more than match any patched up huns MF.

    In a long season, tomorrow might be the time

    Brown will come on to shake hands at the end
    Anything else is gross mismanagement

    I'd bring him on when we were 3-0 up to break Kent's greeting jaw.
