    Massive game, I was just reading that Walters should be ok which is a big boost.

    All positive stuff....

    it would be a massive boost if we could win it, but even a draw wouldn't be that bad a result.

    Lets hope we play some of the football we played against Uruguay and we don't go back to being scared of the ball. Also if Harry Arter doesn't start MON needs his head examined.

    I agree although it's tough to fit the midfield 5. You would think Whelan has to start, then it's 4 from Brady, Arter, Hendrik, Wes and McClean?

    Personally I'd have Arter and Whelan in the middle, Brady on the left, McClean on the Right and Wes behind Walters.

    That's exactly how I'd do it too. Although I can see MON putting Hendricks in instead of Wes. But Hendricks was poor against Uruguay.

    I was very impressed with Kevin Long on Sunday, I would like to see him beside Duffy going forward.

    My team would be:

    Randolph
    Christie Duffy Long Ward
    McClean Whelan Arter Brady
    Hoolahan
    Walters


    I know Westwood is likely to start after Randy's clanger, but his distribution gives us so much going forward that I'd stick with him and give him the vote of confidence.

    Win and another other than a Wales win in the later game and things start to look pretty decent for Russia....

    yeah agreed, his touch was a but off at first which was possibly nerves but we all felt he grew into the game.

    I think Brady is better when Wes is playing. More intricate play. But possibly Wes better off the bench to unlock a tired defense?

    Hendricks will start ahead of wh imo, although hendricks was poor against uruguay. McClean flying at moment so has to start. A win for us and draw in other match and we would be in a very nice position going into last few games.

    It depends on how MON is planning on setting the team out. Ideally you want the best 11 out there and to be a goal or 2 up, so you don't need to be bringing Wes into the game to try and level it or win it. Instead we could already have him on, and we'll take him off and try and hold the lead.

    But we both now the more likely scenario :D

    Agreed on Brady, in fact I think all the players play better when you've got more good players on the pitch. Brady, Wes & Arter all linking together was wonderful on Sunday.
