So the side has been picked. Piquionne teams up with Keane up top, O'Neil and Obinna are on the flanks and Noble and Parker in centre midfield. As an offensive unit, it looks good, but defensively? Ouch!
Gabbidon is paired with Tomkins as Upson gives in to another niggle. Well, he doesn't want to carry an injury into next season does he? That might limit his salary negotiations with other clubs! Immediately, we see the stupidity of not signing another defender in the window! Gabbidon aint good enough and his presence could cost us dear! On the flanks we have Jacobsen and Bridge but should any of the defenders pull up lame, we only have Reid on the bench.
Barerra doesn't even make it onto the bench and nor does Faubert. Is the Frenchman injured? Who knows.
It looks like 4-4-2 to me but what is Obinna going to offer defensively? So sign of Specs either so he is presumably injured.
