I'd go with that line up as well.....not sure TC will drop Forshaw straight in though.

I don't get the clamouring for Alioski's inclusion. TC keeps persevering with him, switches him from right to left or left to right during games in a tactical move to get the best out of him. Maybe Christiansen feels his options are limited when he plays Roofe upfront & with Dallas injured, that leaves him with either Sacko or Cibicki as the only other alternatives. TC has subbed Alioski a few times of late so his days maybe numbered as an automatic starter if he doesn't get his act together soon.

I doubt my average rating for Alioski's performances is above 5/10 since the Villa game in early December :shock:

Roofe, Sacko, Dallas, 10-3-9 Championship goals respectively in total, 2 full seasons and 1.5 each for Sacko and Dallas.

People wanted us to get Ryan Kent from Liverpool? 3goals last season.

Think Alioski while he has blown hot and cold doesn't get enough credit for his 1st 6months in a new country, new football style and new league.

5 goals and 4 assists. He is the 1st one forward to support a break and the 1st one back to help the defence.

He has been out of form (like everyone else) but he has shown quality moments that get overlooked. Vs Ipswich cut inside and sent a perfect cross field ball to Pablo with the outside of his foot, thats a difficult skill for example.

He is our main outball, often he is the one players look to find as soon as possible, and when last season we relied on the awful Sacko and Dallas who is an honest pro but not much of a match winner, think Ali should get more credit and more appreciation for what he does.

And he is a nice lad :)

He doesn't get kicked unlike flank players of old did such as Gray, Lorimer, Graham, Strachan, Speed, etc

He goes down very easily, on most occasions with no contact whatsoever. Referees have sussed him.

As an old school football fan I personally hate this trait in modern football

Just checked back on my ratings

Hasn't achieved at least one 7/10 in our last eight games

Since Burton I've rated his performance between 2/10 & 5/10

As I thought....average rating over last eight games - 4.75/10

Doesn't actually warrant him a place in the first XI does it ? although he'll probably start & we'll witness another gardening session tomorrow ;-) Needs to get his act together quickly

Just like Cibicki he was subbed in the first 45 minutes at Ipswich as they were both woeful !

The problem being, you put Roofe on the right and you take away from his game too. He doesn't get high scores when played out there and certainly doesn't help out the defence. Both are miles better than Sacko and Cibicki thoigh.

He does go to ground to easily at times, i dont like it, i dont like Saiz doing it i dont like Ronaldo doing it etc.

Messi doesnt do it, another reason i rate him above Ronaldo.

You cant compare him to Gray etc, its not fair, different time.

No surprise, I think TC has only ever started one player straight out of the box and that was Lassoga IIRC and I may not be
