...I think you made a mistake with the wolfsburg line up ;-) as for our line up... it looks like we will be playing the croatian style...

mvuemba on the right sounds good - he's been playing well when he's come on. davis and hughes will be solid, hopefully sol and distin will to. slight concern that Tony didnt pick crouch becuase he wanted to prove we play good football... but actually, I think that this is a way of playing that could work very well - and means that come west brom, we will still have at least one set of fresh legs!

I won'tault tony's tactics - we were let down by poor mistakes, mvuemba justified his incusion with a STUNNING goal, defoe also got his. However our whole back 5 played abismaly today - let's hope we sort it out for the rest of the season. if we can, we will do well, if not, we could struggle...
