That's the line up I would expect Bruce to go with, not the line up I would prefer. Given the injuries to Davis, Green, and Onomah I would go with;

...............................................Johnstone.............................................
Bree.......................Chester.............................Terry.........................Taylor
..................................Lansbury...................Hourihane............................
......Snodgrass..............................................................................Adomah
..............................................O'Hare...................................................
....................................................Hogan..............................................

Yes, Adomah out of his normal position on the right because he'll still be more effective than either Bananason or Agbonlahor on the left. 4-5-1 set up essentially, attack focused and not fucking worrying about what Boro might do.
This won't happen.

TEAMS IN LADS

Johnstone, Elmo, Terry, Chester, Taylor, Lansbury, Jedinak, Hourihane, Thor, Snodgrass, Davis

Subs: Steer, Samba, Whelan, Adomah, Hogan, Kodjia, Hutton

So this is the team

................Johnstone..................

..Elmo...Chester..Terry...Taylor.....

...........Jedinak..Lansbury........
.................Hourihane.............
..........Snodgrass....Thor.....
....................Davis.....................

Well, I guess we'll have to see what happens. Funny how he claimed Davis was "tired" and "had a knock" at the weekend but still plays him today!!!..I also have to laugh at him STILL finding a way to get his mate Elmo into the team Very Happy .

There are SEVEN internationals in that team right there and Davis is also an England u20 player himself...what bloody excuses does he have now?

He's used to playing left-wing at Basel so why not? He scored and got an assist against Wigan playing there.

Honestly think I'm in disagreement on 4 players there, if not 5.

I'm sure I'm in a minority but I like Bjarnasson and think he does ok for us. Yeah sure there are things he needs to improve, maybe I just love a trier.

He was the only logical choice now Green is out for a while.

Why he has to insist on playing Elmohamady I don't know, and Hull fans were less than complementary about his performances as a right-back for them last season. Just makes Bruce look like he's got his favourites.

Yep, But at least Elmo might get some crosses in when he gets forward, which Is a bonus I guess as he's been garbage as a winger.

Why do I have a funny feeling Bruce will get out of jail tonight like he did against Norwich? Ugh, I just can't be bothered with seeing his fat face for another six games.

Elmo over Hutton - it could have been worse with the Scottish Cafu blazing the ball onto the roof of Aston Hall every 5 minutes.

I thought it was funny the way people were saying Traore's going to destroy us just because of his performance against Bolton, he's got potential, but previous to that he's hardly done anything for them.

This is ideal. Nearly 90 minutes of football 11 vs 10. If we don't win with some distance, he has to go.

I'm not watching, but knowing how bad we are in possession, how bad we are at attacking and how little movement we have off ball, I imagine watching us 11 vs 10 must be frustrating.
