We think one of the big reasons we have not done well in the last four games is that Sam is not picking the right team, and is playing players out of position too much.
We realize that some of our players, especially in defense, are struggling to come to grips with the great demands of the Premiership, so it doesnâ€™t help the team if players are also playing in unaccustomed positions.
Sam Allardyce – must start to play players in their best positions
We think Sam should pick players for their position and not try to accommodate players (like Smith as one example) by playing him out of position on the wing. Smith is not a winger.
We suggest the following team for Saturday and yes there could be one or two changes to this but weâ€™d really like to see players playing their accustomed positions. Hereâ€™s the team we suggests in a 4-4-2 formation.
Taylor Faye Beye Enrique
Milner Butt (or Geremi or Smith) Emre (or Barton) Nâ€™Zogbia
Viduka (or Smith) Martins
Subs: Harper, Rozehnal, Cacapa, Smith, Ameobi
That team has players playing in their proper positions and we think that will do a lot to help the team on Saturday at Ewood Park, where a win would be a huge relief for most Magpie supporters, including us. 😀
What do you think? Letâ€™s know your thoughts and ideas, especially for Saturdayâ€™s game â€“ because weâ€™ll have to take each game one at a time and do our very best in every single game from now on.
