Team Sheet & Tactics Board For Bolton

Image for Team Sheet & Tactics Board For Bolton


Bolton away and before a ball is kicked the proceedings have been hijacked by the Fabrice ‘Beloved In Christ’ Roadshow.  Apparently he will be in attendance to thank in person both sets of fans for their, “prayers, love and support.” 

Of course, this would be a great opportunity for the player to front an NHS or a British Heart Foundation initiative, but Muambo Jumbo is the order of the day and it so thanking the vicarious grief junkies and divine intervention is so much easier. Almost as easy as accepting a cheque from The Sun of course…

..who have excelled themselves with today’s vicious bullying of Roy Hodgson. 

We all chuckled at the Life Brian as Pilate cried, ‘Fro him to the fwoor!’ but comedy is a question of degree and publishing a list of words that a real person with an minor impediment isn’t funny, it’s bullying. 

Is this a pro Arry backlash? I’m unconvinced. Roy may have the look of a Hinge & Bracket fan about him, but his CV is pretty impressive for those that have been bothered to examine it so if you want to do something truly redundant today, #prayforthesun.

And so for the game. Here’s the board.

fig.1 & fig.2 Sandro & Eunice to focus on punchy passes to the wing men. fig.3 & fig.4 the wing men to stay on the bloody wing. fig.5 Brad must NOT hoof the damn thing into the night sky. Roll it out baby….

I’ve resisted the urge to field King, I’d be amazed if Arry follows suit. Hopefully he’s enough faith in the freshly repaired Eunice. 

Sandro was too good against Blackburn to drop and so naturally edges it over Scotty Parker. Again I will be surprised if Arry doesn’t drop the Brazilian as the pressure to win and only win mounts in that little brain of his.

Danny Rose will get another start I’m sure, but for me it’s making up the numbers territory here, he really isn’t the required standard.

Modric on the half way line with Bale on the left and Azza on the right. I cannot bang on about this enough. They must get service in those positions. Having Kyle and Rose running into them is pointless and it defeats the purpose of Bale and Lennon playing if the crosses are coming from these two ‘wing backs’ who are such proven dreadful crossers of the ball.

Rafa and Ade upfront with Saha first in line to the first one to look puffed out.

Bolton have been miserable home and away this season  and so there really is somewhat of a gun against the head thing going on here should we screw up here.  

Eyecatcher bets from Boylesports include Half Time Bolton, Full Time Tottenham is a tasty 20/1. Full Time Score 1-2 is 7/1, Sandro Anytime Goalscorer is 9/2…

    Bale on the left. Lennon on the right. Let Rose near the ball as little as possible.

    Pin it to the dressing room wall. Team talk done.

    1-2 To the Tottenham.

  • Antmoorwood says:

    We really need to win tonight (stating the obvious I know!). Agree with your line up HH. Alas, I think our twitchy leader will think differently! COYS!

  • jolsgonemental says:

    Personally I like Roy. He deserves better than to manage our national team and its numbskull fans and media.

    • mynameisluka says:

      Agree, God love him. #prayforwoy
      He looked like a rusty badger caught in the headlights at the Press conference.
      I sincerely hope he does well-

    • Alspur says:

      I like him, as well – he’s definitely bright and has bags of experience…

      …I just don’t think he’s the best manager available… :(

  • Bruxie says:

    Rose. A total waste of space.

    • nipper says:

      who would play instead? he might not be as good as Benny, but he did alright against Blackburn, even if they were abject.

      And while I’m on, totally agree with H about the Muambo Jumbo show, a cynical plot to unsettle the Spurs players…

      • mattspurs says:

        Bale at left back

        • nipper says:

          fair enough…but he wouldn’t stay there, he’d go wandering off somewhere…

          And what colour we playing in tonight? What is our luckiest away strip? Cos we going to need it, we’ve an appalling record away to the tripe eaters……

          New boots and panties.

      • jolsgonemental says:

        I’ll play there. I play in a monday night 5 a side league so I rate myself about as good as Rose.

    • koko-61 says:

      Why do you have to be cruel about young Rose.
      He is only 21.. give him a break, and is still good for us. Look how well he played against Blackburn, and against Stevenage, he was the only player that showed some fight. No wonder our youngsters are not coming through to the full team, because of in patient fans like you.
