Ian Goodison... who else!
I think we've had threads similar to this before, but there's no harm in doing it again based on recent performances. I think mine would be...

Achterberg

Francis Sharps Jackson Goodison :eek:

Aiston Rankine McAteer Roberts

Facey Greenacre

Sharps and Jackson I believe are both excellent centre backs, good in the air which is what you need at this level. Francis has proven himself to be a real handful, both defending and going forward. Great tackler, not afraid to get stuck in. I know Goodison is inconsistent, but I like the fact that he tries to be creative and play his way out of trouble rather than just hoofing it away. I think teaming him up with Gareth on the left is a good option. Aiston on the right playing as an out and out winger, our most creative player. Rankine will run and chase down all day and I think Mcateers experience and quality is invaluable. Obviously the only concern here is that both Rankine and Mcateer are getting on a bit. At a push I'd replace either of them with Danny Harrison to give us a bit more ambition in the middle of the park. Facey and Greenacre have proved themselves to be decent, if not consistent goal scorers. At a push I'd maybe play Zola instead of Facey to give us a bit more height.

That's what I think anyway :!:

Francis - Sharps - Linwood - Roberts

Aiston - Jennings - Harrison - Brown

Greenacre - Facey


Jennings, having been played everywhere but his natural position of central midfield isn't in great form at the moment, but I'd give him a chance. If his form didn't improve then O'Leary instead.

Picking Paul Brown is a no-brainer, he simply has to play if we want to entertain and to win games. Davies is another option, but frankly I wouldn't play him out wide, I'd have him coming on if either Facey or Greenacre is playing poorly.

Jackson's been consistently bad over the last few weeks, so I'd favour Linwood at present. Goodison, don't make me laugh. I'd give him to the reserves or send him packing.

Francis Sharps Goodison Robberts

Aiston Rankine Harrison Tremaco

Zola Greenacre




I would bring on macca in midfield 2nd half, Facey for zola and Jacksin for Goodison when he has his bad game. That is if we have no injuries and no need for a tactical change. Roberts and Tremaco can swap positions and need not worry if one gets forward too far as the other can cover! This would cause the defence problems and disable an attacking right back for the opposition!

The best team I think I could pick on Friday taking into account injuries would be....

------------Seremet--------------
Francis Jackson Sharps Roberts
Aiston McAteer O'leary Davies
-------Greenacre-- Facey-------

Change Achto in for Seremet when Achto is fit.

Seremet (Achto when fit)

Francis Jackson Sharps Roberts

Aiston Jennings Harrison Tremarco

Greenacre Zola

I like Jennings and I think people only started disliking him because he was being played out of position and as a result was playing poor football. I also think Danny plays well with Jennings as they are different types of midfielders and Danny has hit a bit of form lately.
Tremarco has been brilliant on the left when I've seen him, most noteably at Blackpool whilst we all know how good Aiston can be.
Then Zola upfront, don't know why but I just prefer him to Facey. Think his all round game is slightly better if he can stay fit
