Hopefully, Herd is recovered as well as Thwaite. Perhaps, Llorente to Left wing and Clisby in. Roly to the CAM and Cejudo to right wing.

Thwaite won’t be in I don’t think. He and Jerrad have been bouncing all over the place to kids events this week according to his LinkedIn.

WSW: The draw specialists. 

7:00 on a Sunday should really bring in the crowd too.

I don't understand this pushing Llorente forward and bringing in Clisby.

Clisby is a liability. Llorente can do his work AND more. He is a specialised LB and should remain there. Clisby can stay on the bench or out altogether as far as I'm concerned.

Llorente will lose his open space and overlap if he is played as LW.

Also, as said on this week's ATB. It should be a Llorente - Cejudo left wing combination permanently so it can continue to do damage to other teams.

Maybe Gombau took over the WSW website and ignored what Foxe had said last week.

Llorente has played in the past and this his alternate position in Transfermarket.

Well, if Llorente played left back, they can skin Manny Muscat and leave Jumpei/Hamill to work on Jamieson (if he plays). Get Herd to man man up to Malik and it could be an excellent game.

so far from llorente I'm more impressed with him going forward 

defending I still have question marks the way he stood off in the derby and let that shot come was strange considering that was the only present danger 

there's been a few other times I can recall he's been a little suspect 

he's got a great engine and passing ability I'm sure he will be more steady as season progresses

Leave Llorente where he is look at the goal against victory. Him linking with Cejudo and Reira is about the only thing that is working for us in attack.

Overall agree, however one shouldn't underestimate Risdon's  attacking and consequently his accurate crossing to Riera.

Llorente won't make or break this side.  Our creative midfielders need to do their job and supply opportunities.  Oreo is good enough to score and our defence is adequate too. It's our creative engine that concerns me. If Josep can get that right we are a chance. If not scrape in at 4 the best we can hope for

Llorente and Risdon should be the key to how we play, both capable of getting forward and crossing the ball. Reira is possible the best scorer of headers in the league. #overlappingfullbacktastic

I like our side. 

What killed us is switch off in the second half of the game.

Bridge still needs to get fit.

I prefered roly in a more front position than bridge.

Get your act together, girls.

  • we buried them in the first half >> we should have buried them in the first half
  • we played 90 minutes full steam >> we ran out of puff after 60 minutes

Melbourne "No One Gives a **** About" City will be on the bounce after  last week. Is it just me or do they seem to be playing better without Fakaroli and Mr Vi$sion in the starting line up? At least they're winning (last week aside of course).

That city is there's, 20,000 empty seats, who ******* cares :rofl:

New manager, a win is on the cards me thinks :)

It's you mate.

They have stiffened up their spine with Muscat, Bart, La Rocca, Jamieson 

Plus Jakobsen in DM.

I'm still hoping for a win with a ref without grudges like Gillett

Attacking line up should be interesting to see if Gombau tweeks the formation, tipping a hard fought win that's if var doesn't screw us in favor of $ity.

Come on you wanderers

I was thinking that as city play 3 at the back so target them with santa/Oreo pressing with Cedeju and roly in midfield trying to feed them and play more direct rather than run around them. Have Sotirio and bridge on each wing, leave out Jumpei for last 30minutes, take off both bridge,Santa for a fresh last 30" when we seem to drop off games.
