Starting line ups - 1st game vs yesterday 20:21 - Feb 11 with 1156 viewsSpen

Was looking back through the teams this weekend from Watford away to yesterday.

Vs Watford

Begovic
Kakay
Fox
Gubbins
Paal
Dozzell
Field
Smyth
Kelman
Chair
Dykes


Vs Norwich

Begovic
Cannon
Cook
JCS
Paal
Colback
Hayden
Willock
Hodge
Chair
Armstrong

Only 3 starters from the first game of season to now, albeit with Field out suspended.
I'm sure there's probably been big changes in previous seasons but I can't remember a transformation like that anytime recently, not only in personnel but in style.

Chalk/Cheese.

As has been mentioned before, it really was a baby/bath water/whole bath launch when GA was appointed. The fact that we're still in with a shout of staying up is remarkable.

That Watford team will be up there with the worst I've ever seen QPR field, and will take some beating (certainly a good deal more difficult than to beat them at football).

I am still very unclear what GA's thinking was tbh........

It's a huge change, but actually, quite often first game of the season doesn't reflect where the team is even 3-4 months later. This year probably a bigger change than most!

Bare bones.

Bit of context

JCS injured
Colback injured
Armstrong bench
Willock bench
Dunne injured
Cook signed 4 days later

It was a terrible line up but thank god we got stronger over the next few games as those wins are just as important.

I've always said there are two fields of human endeavour where you can be hopeless but still make a lot of money - football and pop music. GA fits both examples I'm sorry to say. Ouch !

As Chris said , the Watford lineup ( defence especially) was partly foisted on GA. He obviously wouldn’t have wanted to start with Gubbins and a half fit Fox at CB but there literally was nobody else . Even now our 2 best CBs are injury prone and it will be a miracle if they are ever present to the end of the season.

Up until 73 minutes in last week, we hadn't even conceded a single goal with our first choice defence (Cannon, Cook, JCS, Paal) playing as a four (including games against Ipswich and Hull so not exactly easy games), but the first time they were all on the pitch together was most of the way through the Stoke game.

Ainsworth very clearly wasn't up to the task but he did get pretty unlucky with injuries and suspensions (by his last game we didn't have any fit centre-backs and Ozzy was tasked with keeping Jamie Vardy quiet).
