Playing Jose in place of Tiote is not for me, although I have thought for a while I would like to see Side Show Bob play the defensive midfield role rather than Smudgie. The thing is we would need another defender fit enough to play in our back four alongside Wiiliamson. As Campbell now appears to be permanently in the Club Doctors office any idea if Saylor is back in contention for a place?
No issue about having young Ferguson on the bench or playing left side if Jonas out. Far better to play a natural left footed player than using Joey out there or possibly worse still Perch again at left back.
Despite the suggestions I reckon barring injury Smith will start, then after about 50 minutes and two yellow cards or a straight red from Mr Webb will be off for an early bath!
