Could maybe be 4-3-3?

We say this all the time, he will be playing Barkley out wide, that's just the way it is.

We simply MUST win this match.  Otherwise, under a ton of pressure to get all three points on the road, on very short rest and likely with several subs in prominent roles.

Good team except very uncertain about Naismith and Barkley both in the same team. If one of them has to play out wide, I would rather it was Naismith although if I was McGeady, I would be a little pissed off by now.

Very interesting that Distin has been dropped to the bench though

Strong side front to back but I would have played Besic instead of Barry at the moment .

If Besic is carrying even a mild knock, suspect he will only play the middle fixture of the week.  Makes sense to use Stones twice and Distin once, as well.

yes

Not a bad team at all, just would not have played Barry, been poor lately, is Besic injured ?, if not he is very unlucky to have been dropped. Don't want to see Barkley out wide either.

I'm hoping its Naismith on the left. He's got the kind of one touch football and appreciation of space that Baines works well with.

Think reports of Barry's demise have been greatly exaggerated.

Hey, blarg lives!  I will likely be spending the night in a nearby airport (JFK) tonight, I will wave towards Jersey once I find a location where I can watch NC State's bowl game second half.

It's a little unfair to single out Barry, or anyone really (usually it's Lukaku unfairly targeted) for playing badly.  The entire squad is out of synch.  We could use Kid Barca for the mental boost (hey, the old gang is all back together!) as much as anything, in my (likely idiotic) opinion.

Top players all out there today - no excuses.

If we dont play well its down to tactics and lack of intensity.

COYB !!
