Who really cares. Complete f*** up of a season. Sacking FDB allowing players to dictate formations and tactics. All our eggs in one basket signing Sakho. Hodgson is an insipid Manager. His England reign wasn't poor because of Iceland.It was the Ross in the finals and lack of anything exciting in qualification. Big errors all round. I am rarely negative about the team etc but find little if anything to be optimistic about

I'd play Dann up front in this one for a number of reasons. Firstly it's an extra defender. And secondly it's extra height; Man Utd with Matic, Fellaini and Lukaku are one of the league's biggest teams. Dann could even play at centre back and leave RLC up front on his own. Try for 0-0. That's all we can do.

Play Dann up front to get him away from the defence.

He's finished as a premier league centre half!

You're writing him off based on a defeat against the Premier League champions elect? With their small pacy forwards he literally couldn't have a more difficult match to play all season. Be patient with him, even Sakho was off the pace and understandably so.

away to Bournemouth when we stopped the slide? Can't remember who scored the crucial first goal? Look, Tomkins is the better defender if we are going to play a high line. But I expect us to be deep, and Dann to form a formidable partnership with Sakho

Guys this is a much easier game to get a result. Man City attack you with unstoppable passing and pace. They have incredible creativity. If you sit back against them they will murder you. If you sit back against Man Utd they are limited. They use the pace of Lukaku and Rashford and the power of Pogba to open teams up. And they have struggled to open teams up in the past. Their 4-0 wins have been down to the opposition chasing and Man Itd picking them off in the final 10 mins. If we sit deep we can out-Mourinho Mourinho. Go for a 0-0. Play 4-4-1-1 and get everyone back defending. Personally I'd play Riedewald for added defensive ballast, but it won't happen. Instead I hope that when Cabaye goes off after 60 we don't hand them the game on a plate and instead bring Jimmy or Jairo back into centre mid to reinforce. Obviously we will need luck but if we can frustrate them you never know.

Only Liverpool and Man City will be a struggle for Dann. We don't play either for a while. Against those teams Tomkins is the better bet. Against everyone else I'd go for Dann.

I't really doesn't matter who plays or what the formation is. I have said before we have a squad of physically and mentally weak players. If they go a goal behind , that's it, it's just how many they will concede from there. They are too easily forced off the ball and they have no leaders anywhere on the pitch. Far and away our best player is on loan our main striker is hopeless and our goalkeeper is the worst in the league. Hard to find any thing good to say about our club right now.

Obviously we will need luck but if we can frustrate them you never know.

United may be limited in attack by comparison with City, but sitting too deep is not the answer. If we allow them to play in front of us on the edge of our 18 yard box there will be many chances for them to score, and Rashford and Lukaku are too good to miss them all.

Bringing in "added defensive ballast" would not help. Unless we have outlets to transition from defense to attack the ball will simply keep coming back into that dangerous area. Four at the back and two defensive midfielders are enough.

We need to use width, mobility and pace with players capable of moving the ball forward quickly, which will discourage their full backs from camping out in our half.

The injury to Benteke may not be a total disaster. Playing a target man just encourages players to lump the ball forward. Trying to shoehorn Sako into that role is not the answer. Wolves tried it and so have we, he has himself admitted that he dislikes playing there.

If Roy feels we need a focal point for our attack, I would prefer giving Ladapo his chance. He has been in form for the U23s, never going to be great at holding the ball up, but finds space well and can run in behind. An alternative is to play RLC as a false nine, but I think he is better a bit deeper without the central defenders tight on him.

What makes this situation of having Benteke injured is what we have dreaded has finally happened, to even have to consider using our best Midfielder(RLC) who is Not a striker will only weaken another area, it simply says a lot of how poorly organised our transfer policy had been.
And another alternative suggestion has been Sako, a player who 90% of Palace fans would say in reality should be nowhere near the First team based on what we have seen from him over the past 2 seasons, merely sums up the depths in poor organisation we have reached for a premiership club, as we don't have too many alternatives to choose from.

Pretty mad considering the funds we have had over the last 5 years. We have managed to compile a squad earning 80 million quid a year that cannot score a goal. Even by Palace standards that's quite impressive. So let's imagine we have been relegated and are playing with who is left after Hennessey has been murdered, Fosu M and RLC have been returned far better players, and Dann, Sakho, Schlupp, PvA, Riedewald, Townsend, Cabaye, Wilf, Luka, Tomkins, and Benteke have been sold to get the wage bill back to 11 million again.

If things are going badly on the day, I wouldn't mind seeing Freddie Lapado coming on for a spell. Probably not good enough but he looks pacey is tall and scored two good goals in the u21's v Leeds one of which was similar to the chance Benteke blazed over v Liverpool. Maybe he deserves a chance.

Is it? Luke Dreher has been the best i've seen of the recent crop though I enjoyed Lumeka's little cameo the other day though. Neither are suitable to play up top though.

I think dann will actually offer as much as benteke for much of this game. He can pass and shoot as we've seen but as an outlet he's likely to win balls in the air. This worked well with benteke and Ruben before and as we obviously spent last week working on it I think dann is more likely to continue what was the right approach. Sako wouldn't win nearly as much from that point of view so dann for me is the guy to play with Ruben just off of him.

Rlc can drop deep when required but much like the first half against city again.

Until the goal we played well against city and it should be more of the same against both Utd and Chelsea. If, IF Roy can keep their heads up it will go to the wire because we have a good side. One that will create chances so well have to see psychologically if they can handle it and if we can find a solution to the lack of striker

Lets not be negative a few things have been learned in the last couple of weeks. Punch and Mac are no longer good enough to start. RLC appears to have something as a No10.
We're getting closer to the best line up.
Its not Man City, we'll have a little more of the ball which means we won't be chasing so much and less likely to run out of steam.

For my money the best starting line up would be; for me as usual a box of 4 central defensive players, its very difficult to breakdown. Centre forward well, your guess is as good as mine, we'll have to work through them but Dann would be useful when defending their 45 corners so get the starting nod from me.

Yes, that's more like it. As much height as possible, and 4-5-1 with RLC as a false 9, dropping back into midfield. Valencia is their key man. Stop their overloads on the right, with Mikitarian and Valencia and we can get a result. In that respect Riedewald is the key man to support Schlupp on that side. And let Sako take the space that Valencia has vacated. It may end up looking something like:

Not forgotten but fellani and martial are the players I fear most for us. Gives them too many options. With those missing Sakho and Luka can be competitive against Lukaku and miki.

As it is Man U and Chelsea, I would give one of the young kids a run out. Highly improbable that we will get anything out of these games so use them to blood the youngsters and see if they are ready to step up. I would much rather do this for the sake of our youth system than drag an over 30's has been back into the game. There's a reason that they are not playing and it's either that they are no longer any good or they are greedy for money. I consider the latter because they should be keeping fit playing at a lower level on short contracts.

It will be how we deal with their wide men that will determine the result. We have been appaling in the full back position all season.

We have to be realistic as the chances are we will be defeated with how we are currently.
With that in mind i would say we will be fighting for pride rather than expectancy and i would pick a starting team to reflect that. Personally i feel we should Not start with a striker as we don't have one of note so would be pointless, but go with a strong Five man defence, and a flexible mobile midfield that works hard defensively as well as supporting eachother as an attack. We will need to"suffocate" their play as they tend to swarm forward and put you under pressure, it is not a question of being negative but using a system to stem the pressure similar to what we saw happen in that defeat by City, i would go with a similar plan against Chelsea as we need if possible to get ONE point if possible from these Two games so as to boost morale and kick start our depressing season.
I would start Julian Speroni as we need a change to stem this run of defeats, Wayne "H" looks bewildered at times and this is filtering through to his defence and needs to be taken out of the firing line for now. Also with JS he gives the defence confidence and belief when in goal as he has shown before, we all accept he is not the JS of old but it could turn out to be the turning point in our horrendous season? what have we to lose by giving him a chance.
The other tweeking to the system would see RLC playing in midfield but as the more advanced Central attacking midfielder as he has the physical attributes to cope with their defenders, but is also capable of scoring a goal with his powerful shooting on sight policy.
We are in a position that none could have imagined we would be in so it calls for unusual measures and formations, but if it achieves it's goal who's complaining.

I'm not even sure what would be the worst case but I guess on the list:

Sakho, RLC, Townsend, Cabaye(?), maybe Luka or something on Wilf (though I doubt it given all the positive update vids we get everyday).

My guess is certainly the first two, based on what has been suggested recently RLC most likely...

Sakho breaking down would be the worst news. Sounds like RLC if the other posters are correct, which will be another disappointment.

Ffs, I wish our luck would change.

Nobody going for Joel Ward upfront to repeat the heroics of our last hat-trick hero right back?

The achievement has been tarnished because it was against Wayne Hennessey...

We need mobility up front in a game like this. Someone who'll chase everything and put their centre halves under pressure. Let Jimmy Mac do the job, at least for the next two games where we'll be mostly defending anyway.

Utd playing 3 at the back and will be pressing us. Schlupp has the pace in the channels to be an effective outlet.. drive to the byline and get us corners.

With Tomkins injured, Dann is needed cb so it's schlupp for me... I think

I'd have schlupp in over both punch and Sako personally! I'm just gutted we only have one of him at the moment as I'd have three as a front three with his pace!

Surely Ladapo has to be the striker ? Cant believe all these ideas of full backs or midfield players being our striker if we have one on the bench . Ladapo is part of our club ,he is a striker , play him .

That's my team Punch has had enough chances. Sako is just not fast enough or fit enough to trouble them we have seen enough of Lee. Ladapo and Lumeka seem to have a decent understanding both move well something we lack. RH will stick with Sako and Punchoen to be fair that's the safe bet.

Has to be ladapo up front, what sort of message does it send out by putting a player out of position over him! Also a striker all be it a young and not tried one is much more likely to score, as it's just natural to them, I bet I'm training he bangs them in

He's almost 25

Of course it's better to play Sako out of position than Ladapo - who has no chance of playing above League 1 level.

What a complete lack of investment by the board.
Some of the players remind me of the days of Langley and Aylott

It just shows that if we have more than 3 players injured, then we have no depth in our squad.
Reidawald should be playing ahead of no goals punch drunk
