Team no longer picks itself due to having players available.
If a 3-5-2
Julien, Ajer, Elhamed, Bitton, Jozo
Broony, Calmac, are a given then any 3 from
Forrest, Frimpong, Ntcham, Christie, Rogic, Elyannoussi, Taylor, Hayes
Griff, Eddy

For me
Julien, Ajer, Elhamed
Frimpong, Broony, Calmac, Hayes
Eddy, Griff.

I'm confused by this post you've left button and jozo out of the players that you said are a given or am I misreading the post completely I don't know I'm so confused.

I think it'll be
El Hamed Ajer Jullien
Forrest brown Calmac Rogic Taylor
Griff Eddy

If I was picking I'd swap frimpong for forrest and Christie/ ntcham (if fit) for Rogic. But I'm not.

That's my team apart from rogic id go with Christie for his work rate.

{Ed007's Note - It would be absolute craziness to play Elhamed who has played a whole 9 minutes of football in the past five months.}

Dont know why anyone would play frimpong over forrest
Sorry ed I don't agree. I'd play elhamed. His pace could be crucial down that side. didn't he miss a stack of games before that first game and get thrown straight in?

{Ed007's Note - No, his game-time was being managed because he struggles (or was struggling) to play two games a week and he was playing in Europe for us. He was dropped for the Motherwell and Hearts games that sandwiched the LC match against Dunfermline and then played against TRIFC and Accies, the next game against Kilmarnock he was on the bench and came on for 11 mins (his last domestic appearance) before finding himself benched and an unused sub for the next 5 matches in the league before getting injured against Lazio.
If Elhamed plays in every remaining match this season - which is highly unlikely - he will have managed one more game than Derk Boerrigter did in his first season for us.}

Totally agree ed but think the last time we went there he was jyst back from injury and had a stormer he's maybe one of they guys that doesn't need a lot of game time.

{Ed007's Note - Or maybe he's another Simunovic or Rogic that's going to spend more time out injured than playing.}

ElHamed over Bitton.

11 Mar 2020 18:45:14
I like elhameds pace but I think bitton just adds a calmness into the back line that's not always there.

If it is 3-5-2 then I'd rather Hayes as LWB over Taylor purely over pace. Taylor better defensively but can see him being caught out up the pitch and doesn't offer any overlaps as he can't beat a RB for pace. Elhamed is a big risk as he's hardly played no time for getting players up to speed it should be 100% fit players but could be used as he makes the defence flexible to a change of shape.
