Uh-oh. I hope we're seeing McCleary and HRK wide in a 4-4-2, not Piazon in a three man midfield or wide left. I say seeing....

Still, typical of McDermott to say a big F you to league placings and go with four attacking players and try to win.

So... McCleary on the right, HRK in the middle, Vydra on the left, Piazon as No. 10 ?

Brian's going for it.

Isn't this the sort of formation we were slating Clarke over?

Hope Piazon is being played centrally

Actually a 4-2-3-1 could work quite well with that line up

Wouldn't surprise me if it was a 442 with Piazon on the left and HRK up front

If it involves Piazon at left wing or in a midfield three with the other three attackers a front three, yes. Yes it is. If it involves HRK at left wing and Piazon off Vydra, not in the slightest. If it involves Vydra left wing with HRK upfront and Piazon off him... too close for comfort but not quite.

Sa and Quinn must be slightly injured (still on the bench but not in the team). Otherwise, this looks like a strong team. I especially like the back four; Taylor, Cooper, Ferdinand and Gunther. They'll need to be strong to stop a rash of goal.

Why do we kick the ball out of play as soon as we kick off?

Already 1-0 to Derby, this could be a bad night.
