 Being one footed does not mean your a bad player everyone's having a go at Flanagan because he had a ninety minutes he would rather forget but his team mates had long enough to get the result .

 This bloke did very well with his one good foot

God, that picture took me right back to when I got my first Rangers strip for Xmas.

Think Ian might well be right with his team but wouldn't be surprised if Katic, Kamara and Barker come into the side for Helander, Arfield and Aribo (or Davis of he doesn't make it).

 

Confident Barisic will start which would be a big boost. 

 

Really looking forward to us taking the game game to them tactically and bettering them physically.

Barker would be a curveball but has he got the cojones for this level of game ?

The same question can be asked of SG´s more customary pick, Ojo.

Ideally, I would prefer the more gallus Jordan Jones but it has to be doubtful that he is match-fit to start.

Hence the option of Arfield comes back into focus.

 

However, I´d agree we need to get at them if we want to have a chance of lifting the Cup.

In September, we started with next to no width on the park (only Tav). On the bench was Barasic, Ojo, Jones as well as Morelos. Our midfield had Jack, Kamara and Davis...with Aribo, Arfield and a Defoe with no service.

In short we made it very easy for them and they were happy to give us possession, knowing we wouldn´t do anything with it other than offer up mistakes in our own half.

 

So, what do we do differently ?

 

I previously mentioned 3-5-2 but we know that is almost certainly a curveball too far at this stage so it comes down to two real options that I can see.

 

1. As you seem to suggest with more width as per our European approach.

2. More variation with a more direct route to Morelos (with support) regularly employed to try and push their high line back a bit. It´s a shame that Edmundsen hadn´t got more football in his legs given his passing ability (I wonder if he´s an outside bet of an option should Davis miss out).

 

The main issue for me is not to get caught in  continually trying to pass our way through their press because it´d be a matter of time before we got caught.

I don't expect any surprises in our line up, barring any injuries.

 

McGregor

Tav
Goldson
Helander
Barisic

Jack
Davis
Kamara

Arfield
Morelos
Kent

It's hard to see past this line up if everyone is fit. Gerrard will have to decide whether central defence retains enough confidence after Wednesday evening but the rest really picks itself. It will be a battle.

IMHO, no matter who will form the midfield-front part of the side, ou defenders need to be switched on for the whole 90+ mins. And that also includes not venturing forward at every opportunity like e.g. Tav and Barisic do against lesser teams. Kamara and Jack are a must in CM/DM.
