Zaha is out brubru.

Not that it matters because someone like gayle or puncheon will score.

It's Bolasie we have to worry about, he likes playing against us.

We should win, I'm not going.

I think Baines should perhaps start on the left side of midfield to help Galloway out and nullify the threat of Bolasie or Puncheon. May have to sacrifice Kone on this one.

They are tight at the back and quick on the break . Agree with playing Baines to support Galloway but Coleman is going to need to limit his forward runs with Bolasie a big threat . Tricky tricky game this one .

Baines will replace Galloway, they won't play together

Shame really as Galloway has done pretty well in Baines' absence.

Cleverley on the left on Monday I reckon

It's a shame but there's a real difference between a fantastic prospect doing a great job out of position, and one of the finest left backs in the league.

Baines is not a left midfielder and he is not going to be effective there. He is best when overlapping.

Let's embrace the fact we've got a number of regular scorers, not bemoan it. Delboy will chip in with a few more, Mirallas when he plays will always get you a goal and the same with Naismith.
We've also just scored a goal from a corner for fucks sake. It's at the back we need to be more concerned with.

I am not bemoaning the goalscorers we have - I just want some more goals from our CMs and outside backs. I hardly think that is the negative and controversial stance you are making it out ot be. Per the above table, Crystal Palace has 7 players with 2 or more goals - we have 4. Those stats suggest they will be able to handle there leading scorer getting injured or playing poorly better than we will Lukaku, as they are less dependent on that scorer.

QPR are shit anyway.

I would imagine had Mirallas played more, he would have had a few goals too, but I think Lukaku would have less.

So long as we're scoring more than the opposition, I'm not concerned where they come from.

Yeah Baines and Osman or Bosman have their moments so a more mobile cleverley has some potential. And we shall call them Beverley.

Meant to say Crystal Palace, not QPR.

But my point is that we are going to be less likely to score more than the opposition going forward if we don't get more balanced scoring.
