My team would be:

Jules

Clyne
Fonte
Paddy
Hill

Scannell
Danns
Derry
Smith

Lee
Sears

Lets get the ball out wide and feed Lee rather than smashing it aimlessly to his general area of the pitch.

We really need some width.

Give Smith a start, and just tell him to prove a point; provided Hill finds him enough he has the ability to hit the byline.

Forest have width and pace in abundance/to burn.

We get it big time on Saturday :(

Anyone who picks Sears to start must be shot immediately.

However joking aside i would like to see Clyne for Butts, John for Sears, and Ambrose to start because lets face it he's the only player in the squad likely to actually score a goal at the moment.

It's nice you go to one game and have decided that categorically Sears is no good as a footballer. Have you seen Moses regularly? I am not writing him off but there are games where he doesn't do a thing, is literally anonymous. Now I am not one for writing off our young talent; in fact the academy and seeing the youngsters come through is IMHO the most proud and exciting aspect of the club currently. I understand our youngsters need nurturing, support, exposure and time.

Don't write Sears off after one game.

Ertl must feature.

Have patience with Sears he WILL come good. We've been asking for a replacement for Johnson for years. Have some faith.

To counter Forest's pace think I'd play Clyne on the left and move Butts over to the right, Hill just isn't quick enough and he could be badly exposed. At the same time because of the pace out wide that Forest have I'd go 4-4-2 so the fullbacks a) get more help defensively and b) we aren't cought out behind because they've had to push up to provide us with any width. Maybe something like this

-------------Speroni

Clyne----Fonte----McCarthy----Butts

Scannell----Ertl----Derry----Smith (or Moses if fit)

-----------Lee----Sears

We shouldn't tinker too much as we have still been unbeaten in 5 of 6 and played like winners for most of Tuesday according to most (but not Zohar). Also the more impartial player ratings in the local press were far less scathing than some of our "experts".

Speroni

Cyne-McCarthy-Fonte-Hill

Derry

Danns-Ambrose-Scannell

John-Sears

Bench Flahaven, Butts, Davies, Ertl, Smith, Lee, Carle

(Assuming VicMo is still unfit)

Don't like it too much, but think its a solid line up that gives us options going forward and off the bench.

Luckily Forest's main danger GUy Moussi (who we injured last season) is suspended this week for over celebrating a last-mintue winner. He was a powerhouse in the middle, now their ball winner has gone, they'll look to use pace down the sides, which they have, so I think having Scannell, Moses, Clyne is necessary, and Smith too I suspect.

Similar to mine (except I have Sears where you have Scannell).

But two Johns? i take it one is Lee?

With crosses from Ambrose (or Nate on the overlap) and Smith on the wings, I feel Lee could thrive.

I'm going 442 and direct.....Please God no about the direct play. We hardly ever score from direct footie in open play. Let alone create decent chances. Setpieces don't count as open play.

Direct doesnt mean hoof. Direct, to me, means get the ball out wide and run at them

Sears up front on is own with hoofball tactics are you insane?!

And please dont compare AJ to Sears. AJ (even when crap and not scoring) adds another dimension to the team whereas Sears is from another dimension where were somehow led to believe he's a prolific striker.

I think that we should give Hills a chance ( Will surely be faster than Hill as well), and give Smith a start. Cadogan to definitely come on as a sub.
