I'd go for a 433, maybe it's slightly defensive but it gives some of our players the platform to really move forward knowing there's ample cover.

Areola
Coufal (Johnson if fit) Kehrer Zouma Emerson
Downes
Rice Paqueta
Cornet Scamacca Benrahma

Scamacca can drop a bit deeper a play the ball through to Cornet and Benrahma or win headers. Paqueta with the freedom to move forward and Rice with the freedom to run with the ball, Downes ordered to protect the back four and keep possession.

Coufal and Emerson should be able to take turns going forward as Downes is there to patrol the back line.

Cornet and Benrahma told to run at Wolves and keep them guessing.

Soucek, Bowen and Fornals on the bench to think about what they've done.

Harsh on Antonio but off the bench I think he'll cause Kilman and whoever replaces Collins (I've looked at their Squad and I don't see a spare CB?) a rough time.

We need to win this really, we can't give Forest, Everton and Wolves wins so early in the season.

Moyes won't change it up much and for that it will end up costing his job if our poor run continues.

Will he continue to flog a dead horse? Soucek isn't doing well. Give Downes a run. Otherwise why buy him?

The kid is probably desperate to get on and show what he can do. Honestly what has Moyes got to lose?

Johnson for Coufal too if he's fit.

The personnel may change but the tactics won't. It will still be Coufal at RB, Cresswell at LB and Soucek in midfield. You can also be sure, Lage will know this too and plan accordingly

I’m perplexed anyone is putting Fornals in their sides, I’m absolutely astonished anyone would suggest playing Cofual, Johnson fit or not the bloke should be nowhere near a premier league side.

I think Moyes has to go for it. He has to drop some old faves and unleash the newbies in a formation that suits them;

…………………………..Fab……………………………….

………Zouma…..Dawson…….Cresswell……….

………………….…….Downes………………………….

Keherer……..Paqueta.….Rice…………Cornet

……………Scamacca………..…Antonio…………..

This line up incorporates 5 new signings. Areola and Aguerd to follow later in the season. Bowen, form permitting, to share duties with Scamacca and Antonio in future games. Downes is pivotal.

Moyes won’t be playing Scamacca, Areola, Cornet or Emerson against Wolves
Over the next couple weeks he will be working with Fornals, Cresswell, Dawson, Benni, his old guard on a game plan with the coaching stuff to beat Wolves. He may play Paqueta, but I reckon Dawson will come in for Kehrer.
It’s a must win game for him and he stick with what he knows.
I maybe wrong but I can’t see him putting in the new faces when he has had no time with a majority of them away.
If so and he loses against Wolves it’s going to get sticky

Brighton v Palace was cancelled because it was also Freshers Week at Brighton and Sussex Universities and the club use their car parks on matchdays. That weekend was the only time that they cannot use the university car parks as all the parents are taking their kids with everything they need for a year. For Boxing Day last season Brighton paid for additional park and rides from various closed supermarket car parks around the town, which they couldn't do this time.

They could do, but not at the moment. They do intend to strike again at some time so keep looking.
