Team For Tonight
Birmingham will be looking to suffocate the play, filling up the midfield and hitting us on the break. If Zola tries to play through the middle, we will lose. It is time to open up the flanks and throw caution to the wind.
My team for tonight would read: Green: Spector, Tomkins, Upson, Ilunga: Faubert, Parker, Diamanti, Daprella; Ilan and Cole
I have gone for Faubert wide on the right because he has looked our most likely supply line in recent games; let's push him forward and urge him to attack the full back and whip in crosses. Daprella wide on the left because he is naturally left footed and can fill in for Ilunga if the full back ranges forward. Diamanti in centre midfield because I want him picking up the ball when it is headed clear from crosses. I also want him to dictate the place from a more central role. Parker will have to be disciplined and hold, hold, hold all night. Up front, Ilan looks the best of the three to me and most suited to play alongside Cole, although if Franco is ready, I'd be happy to see him back. That team has goals in it; that team could win. But will Zola pick it?
I doubt it!
