Friday night in Sheffield .No trains back, and nowt to eat or drink save a greasy chip butty and a gallon of magnet.

Probably a game for over 18's only.

a big upgrade in quality of opponents for moyes. a good team on form and winning. can we produce a good performance and get a draw up there.
crowd will be hostile and the tackles flying in. a fully committed team who will run all game. unlike Bournemouth who are on their beach !
usual problem at righback where fredericks is a big loss. choices are zabaleta or maybe Johnson if he is fit ? u23 have a game tonight I think .
also will Antonio be fit for this one ? I doubt it so have not included him in the squad.
fornals in for snoddy who has been looking knackered recently.

fabianski
diop babuena ogbnna
zabaleta noble rice fornals masuaka
haller anderson

subs anang cresswell reid lanzini Snodgrass Holland ajeti

going for a hard fought 1-1 Anderson with our goal.

Moyes can make himself a cult hero by putting a team out that beats these twats. Would be a really special victory especially after the Tevez debacle.

Wonder if he might try Snodgrass as wingback? or maybe Antonio...

Apart from that, I'd go for Rice, Noble, and Fornals in the centre, and Anderson supporting Haller again

We are going to have to work our socks off for this. But Sheffield aren't just up there because they run around a lot. I wonder if Moyes will go three at the back again?

Aren't they having a bit of a keeper crisis at the moment? Their reserve keeper was injured at the weekend, I believe.

What part of playing wing backs, don't you understand? At no point yesterday did we have a flat back five..

The good thing about DM by the looks is he will set up the team according to the opposition as appose to Pellers who didn't change formation at all!

If a back three

Fabianski
Diop Balbuena Oggy
Zaba Noble Rice Fornals Masuaku
Anderson Haller

If a back four

Fabianski
Zaba Balbuena Oggy Cresswell
Snodgrass Noble Rice Fornals
Anderson Haller

I wouldn't trust Arthur in a back four but I would Zaba with instructions and help off Snodgrass

With the back three you could hook Zaba after 60 mins and play Antonio there

Anybody know how Sheffield set up?

Yours

Lord Zoltan

Confidence should be up after two on the bounce. I'm going for a win here
