Hopefully, unlike Zola, Grant has smelt the coffee and seen that 4-3-3 is all very well for the Barcelonas and Chelseas of this world but does not work with a team of journeymen. Noble is back, which is great, but it seems desperately quick to me. Just shows that some players are willing to run through walls for the team whilst others just don't fancy a twinge of pain. Where are you Valedictory Behrami?
Boa is still there! And so is Ilunga! God help us!
The team reads:
Green: Jacobsen, Gabbidon, Upson, Ilunga: Parker, Noble, Boa; Dyer, Piquionne, Obinna
Green: Jacobsen, Upson, Gabbidon, Ilunga; Dyer, Parker, Noble, Boa; Piquonne, Obinna.
I hope it is the latter!
