Crystal Palace (Away) Saturday Novermber 18th

Recommended Posts

Finally a Saturday game so I can watch again.  Also a winnable match.  I hope we bring the same determination and fire and lineup of the second half of Watford to selhurst Park.

 

pickford

kenny keane holgate baines

Lennon beni Davies lookman

niasse dcl

 

Would like to see Sandro and vlasic on the bench.

I hope so too but I'm nervous the 13 day break before this game is simply too long.

The good thing is Watford we’re in form and doing well.  Palace are shit and lost to spurs and aren’t in form.  

 

Great time to play them.

The Everton way is to beat those in form and give hope to those on a losing streak.

I’m well aware but I think the Unsworth fucking off kev and Morgan and then the team winning will give them some fight and grit and show them he means business and will bring momentum and confidence.

Come at the worst time, felt we had gained some momentum after Watford. Need to push on and get some good results and performances before the derby.

Taking Rooney off too. Rather than pottering round, falling over the ball and giving it away; we put DCL on who had pace and strength and stretched the Watford defence.

I agree with Lennon in front of Kenny, he needs a bit of protection with a wider head for the time being. I still think he will likely go with Sigurdsson on the left.

Got to say I’m petrified zaha will terrorise Kenny. I’d go solid 4-4-2 Kenny, Keane, jags , baines( what a poor back four that is) benny and gilfi in the centre, vlasic and lookman on the wings and Rooney and DCL up top

Pickford

Kenny Keane Jags Baines

Lennon Gana Schneiderlin/McCarthy Lookman

Niasse DCL

Give Schneiderlin a kick up the ass and tell him to play to his ability... Davies has been poor and I don't like the combo of Gana and Davies since both can be quite undisciplined when it comes to positional play. Beni hasn't been terrible, but he's yet to add much.

Replace Lennon with Vlasic and Gana With Davies then this is the squad I'm going with.

I don't want more than one young player in each segment, ideally. That midfield would have Davies, Vlasic, and Lookman

I think Gana is great, but not better than Davies.

I also believe that Vlasic provides more  than Lennon (both offensively and defensively).

I'm only hesitant about Lookman.. I'd probably play Mirallas there, but he's an unknown quantity at this point.

Lennon does really well defensively, he's our best winger for protecting the full back. 

To be honest he wouldn't make a bad LWB in a 5.

Maybe he'd make a good RWB, but wingers are meant to attack (mostly), and he's too old to start converting now.

When we're up, then yes, put Lennon on as a sub.

Hopping to see a 4-2-3-1 with the right balance.

 

We need a winger, an actually real winger that runs at defences and tries to get in behind the Defense and keeps there width, to play at left mid/wing. (Bolasie would be ideal). I really don’t know who in the squad is capable of this role, Mirallas isn’t the answer, maybe Sandro or Lookman?

This means Baines doesn’t need to make overlapping runs all the time, but is there as an option behind the winger.

At right Mid we can play any of Davies/Siggy/Rooney/Vlasic/Lookman with the option for the player to drift in a little more but the RB must make aggressive overlapping runs to push there Defense back and link up with the RM. Make there Defense work and create space for our plethora of midfielders to work the ball up the pitch.

Zaha is the danger man here. Think he's been playing LW so kenny is gong to need another big game. RW will need to be honest in defence - maybe Vlasic, Lennon is the safe option but he limits our attacking influence. 

4-1-3-2

It all depends if it comes true Bailey doesn’t it. People pay for the truth - not blind optimism

I just hope the boys concentrate on the performance and not the result. Results will come with the performances.

when players concentrate on the result it creates a chance for heads to drop when they go behind. 

Lets put your words into action guys. Lots talk from the players about how they want to continue the momentum from Watford... well let’s see it!

I haven't been around these parts for a while but I'm finally getting down for a game... at probably the worst time! I'd loved my first game to have been at Goodison but this one worked out as my mates living 10 mins from Selhurst so I'm down visiting him and off to the game today - albeit in the home end.

Hoping for a win; expecting a drab 0-0!

Probably the most balanced team we’ve had all season. Dropping Rooney and playing Sigurdsson in his strongest position is the right move in my opinion.

Disappointed that Vlasic isn’t involved but appreciate Lennon’s role in support of Kenny.

Not a bad side. Rooney dropped to the bench, I think I would rather him than sigurdsson. 

Nice to see Sandro on the bench too, hopefully he can get on the pitch at some point today.

Not so sure about Morgan, I would have him with the U23s until next year.

Not happy seeing Schneiderlin and Gana together again that pairing doesn't work, come on Unsworth learn from Koeman's mistake one or the other but not together.

This Vlasic situation is getting to be a bit of a joke now. 

Maybe he isnt fit? Im not sure the club can be that harsh to him then start Morgan if he has allegedly been mouthing off.
