Team for Wed

#1
Quick turnaround, changes need to be made not just to personnel but to formation.

Ramsdale

Smith
Ake
Cook
Mepham
Rico

Lerma
Gosling
Cook

Danjuma/Brooks
Wilson

Rico and Smith as wing backs, Danjuma or Brooks behind Wilson. Assuming Billing and King are injured and Brooks may not be able to start.

Lewis Cook.
From about the 3rd or 4th time I saw anything of him in a Boscombe shirt.. .I had this notion that he was going to be one those players who hit heights as a teen-age star...but it all fades.
Why?.....I'm not sure but seems lack of some ingredient..lax play without passion ?.. He made one fantastic tackle in that game to win the ball ...so I'm thinking why not more....put pressure on for the team..but again the word 'fade' presents .

With that in mind I'd go with this:

Rambo

Rico (against Traore, that could be painful but prefer a left back over there)
Ake
Cookie
Smith

L Cook (deep lying role helping to turn the ball over quicker)

Jeff
Billing

Danjuma
Wilson
Brooks

H Wilson proved to me again why he's not got a right to start for us tonight. Yes, he's capable of brilliance, but he was completely anonymous and this has been the case too often.

This won’t happen lol, EH clearly doesn’t rate Rico for whatever reason. I’d also like to see Surridge come on before Solanke. Surridge has scored 20x the senior goals Solanke has.

Problem players vs Palace for me were both Wilson’s, King, Smith, S. Cook. Refresh is needed, especially for such a quick turnaround. Would rather put King up top and bench Wilson but he’s injured now.

King (Wilson if King is injured)

I don’t fancy Rico, Kelly should be faster and can’t do any worse than Rico will against Traore. Give Billing and Gosling license to get forward in turns so we actually have some bodies up there. I don’t see how we can only play 2 in midfield against this Wolves team.

I agree and I would drop Cook for Mepham as well.
Kelly instead of Rico, with pace against Traore.
I'd almost prefer Surridge to Wilson as well.
Maybe 5 at the back, drop L. Cook and play Meps, Aké and reprieve S.Cook.

We are going down anyway, lets at least go there and do something differently.

Definition of madness, keep doing the same thing and expect a different result.

Actually, yes. S Cook wasn't good last night. I'd like to see Sturridge given a go but think it'll only happen as a sub or if/when C Wilson gets suspended.

This is The team I want to see. Weirdly wolves might suit us. They will attack us . H Wilson is a good footballer but he just isn’t a right winger
Danjuma looked lovely just like the few games he has for us. He gets the call and makes things happen. Imagine if he had a full back overlapping he would cause problem .

Billing when playing in a 3 played well and scored goals. We need him further up the pitch .
Some how we need to gamble . Get the front 3 pressing early
 
#18
Wilson up top on his own with a fluid 5 man midfield is how I prefer is to play away. Now got the personnel to do this giving likes of billing, gosling and brooks the freedom to push forward with cover for attacking full backs.
 
#19
I think with the king injury he will start with danjuma and he should have anyway.
Add billing in to beef up the midfield and brooks with minutes under his belt I think we will be better .
Wolves are beatable and we need to go and do it

To be fair to him, they were all anonymous.
