  1. I am liking the portsmouth home win but in attempt to offer something not yet suggested will suggest a Cambridge away win at salford. As for BTTS I suggest southend v AFC Wimbledon Good luck everyone

    Raggett

    I dont think he is good enough for us in the champs either, simply not good enough on the ball

    Stiepermann

    No issue discussing steipermanns perfomance so far I would agree he hasn't his last season's level or consistency. As other have pointed out when the team has been good he has played his part. One of the challenges is who to replace him with, mario, onel, are injured. For me the options are Kenny or Roberts, with a preference for kenny, he has some of the physicality steipi brings. Roberts is simply a different player that the attacking three and still clearly getting to grips with our attacking triangles. I am probably still in the start him but sub earlier mindset. If we were to make a change I would limit it to Hanley for Kenny or steipi. Either way I will go with what farke selects
  4. Finding losers on a regular basis so a less than optimistic choice of Oxford home win. As for city my prediction is a score draw

    The Centre Back conundrum

    Hanley does seem to have a flat footed mistake a game in him at the moment but his performance have not been that bad. Facing Benteke should suit him; and as our 5th choice CB remains better than most of the options we had last time we were in the prem. Having Amadou protecting the back four seems eminently sensible to me. Kenny is not that type of player to partner Leitner, and given TT and ATs absence, we are painfully short of options. Mario may train this week but its likely to be a week too soon for a start. Amadou starting as DCM and Hanley at CB should give us a more physical presence overall and a little extra aerial strength at corners etc.

    Benteke

    1 goal last season, 3 the one before - total 4 of in his last 35 starts (with a further 18 from the bench) It can only be ACN

    Ratings v Man City

    no one below an 8 for me - immense performance and the team ethic was monstorous. Stand outs were Emi (my motm) - back to his best and,. like steipi & cantwell, covered so much ground in midfield giving that 5 man midfield sheild squeezing the sapce out of their play (as west ham did us two weeks ago) while still breaking forward with pace skill and purpose. Amadou (what a beast) colossal in an unfamilar position; showed he is comfortable on the ball and I cant wait to see him in the CDM position - struck up very solid partnership with Godfrey. Both full back - Byram rightly getting the praise for a defensively solid performance, but Lewis was just as strong on the other side against some very talented players. Still pinching myself; need to follow it up next week at the more physical Turf Moor

    Team for Man City (h)

    Given the back line changes having krul start brings some consistency and organisation; however if the arm is as fragile as Farke indicated - concerned at Krul ruling himself out in the warm up - then risking him in a game when he will face shots and potentially risk his arm more; resting him this week in readiness for burnley seems the sensible option.
  9. 4 points from 9 games having lost 7 when he has refereed us. That must make the only win the 3-1 away victory v Sunderland that I watched.
  10. Home win for Crewe to Cambridge. For us the c 9/2 for man city to win after a -4 handicap seems plausible. Good luck PuPs
  11. Home win for Newport to port vale for me. btts with wycombe v lincoln is a far more confident pick Good luck to one & all

    Maddison and Mings

    I have no issue with WanBissaka who was close to getting a full call up last season and is a very impressive defender, but he does currently lack the attacking outlet we get from Alexander Arnold or Aarons. Mings is a decent CB but I am far from convinced that he (or Godfrey) warrant a full squad call up yet - even in a position crying out for some talent. Godfreys time will come and should last some time.

    Bury have gone

    Do Bury have a CB going as a free agent?!

    Now Hanley is injured

    haha - Tettey also went through my mind! I suspect we will see zimbo and godfrey start, with tettey or amadou slotting in if he starts to struggle after 60 mins or so . There is an increased risk of exacerbating his injury longer term but probably worth that risk.
  15. Brizzle to beat middlesbro for me. as for city, I was tempted by a red card for Godfrey but will avoid that and go for Emi to score anytime.
