Kieftenbeld has been bang average for the last few games.

Ndoye was far better at Bolton and shouldnt have been dropped.

I would play him and make him irritate them.

If fit I would probably go for Gardner alongside Davis in a midfield 2

I'd be happy with Ndoye for Kieftenbeld to be fair

Not sure it's the game for Ndoye, the ball will be played on the floor, they will play with movement and be fluid, passing it around.

Davis and Kief for me.

Ndoye's next start will probably be at QPR where he will be used as a screen to stop Matt Smith.

I totally disagree with both your posts with respect. Harding Has done nothing wrong to be dropped, plus Colin would have to be moved to accommodate Grounds. N`Doye would be given the run around with their team he is exactly what we do not want in midfield. So Why change a settled back four to bring in a worse player imo and weaken the midfield for someone so obviously a misfit for this opposition.

I would be tempted to bring in Gardner but think i would leave Keif and Davis and see how things are panning out and if we are getting overrun add Craig and go 4-5-1. I think i would even consider starting 4-5-1, but only against this one team otherwise i would have been starting with Juke and Gallagher against any other team.

Maybe Bring Gallagher on later if we have a good possession rate or if we go a goal behind.
The one thing we do not want in this game is to go down to 10 men with a sending off, we will get trounced with 10 against 11 and even worse would be to lose another player for the last three games of the season, in fact i would rather lose this game than lose a player for 3 games because we would lose anyway with 10 men.

Me too, I would also give Harding a breather, we have done OK the last few games but I think there is even better to come with Grounds and Colin in there rightful positions.

I'm enjoying the 442 formation but are we going to stick with it for Sunday? We could get a pasting.

I wonder why then did we concede 3 against a team with Bristols Record of 3 wins in 20 games. 442 would be far to extravagant against such quality as they have. We need to stay in the game first half and take it from there, they could be out of sight by half time if we can`t control the game/midfield.

I think people who want Grounds in are letting their hearts rule their heads, Its just not the game to juggle the back four just because you are Grounds lovers, Have you considered it may not even be fair on him. imagine he comes in and wolves wingers destroy him, he needs game time but not against this bloody lot.

Harding has done well but this isn't a game for young kids, nor for out of position defenders.

Grounds and Colin are our best left and right backs respectively. Away at top of the league with a right back out of position when he doesn't look comfortable in the new position is already suicidal.

Disagree , let Harding continue there at right back. He has not let us down, has he ?
If you really feel that Colin is that poor at left back then you could try to make an argument for bringing Grounds back in but I don't understand why you think Wes should be dropped.

No. He'd be moved to his best position. In which he is out best player there.

I’d definitely stick with the 442, we need to play to our strengths as much as we need to stop them.

If we just pack the midfield and let them have the ball it’ll only end one way.

Norwich and Hull both got points at Molineux by having a go and scoring two goals, we need to try and do the same.

We’re more solid in a traditional 442 anyway, the alternatives end up putting loads of pressure on our back line.

For me, it would be a case of having our best left-back at left-back and our best right-back at right back, particularly against the best team in the division. Harding's done very well indeed, but I think we need the round pegs in the round holes ideally. I could see a strong argument for not changing things when the defensive unit wasn't conceding, but I think we need to be put the logical back four in, in terms of shape. If Monk thinks that Wes has done enough to keep his place, that's his call, of course, but I want to see players in their right positions if at all possible.

The only thing n’doye would irritate is our own fans, he is not that mobile and would be running round in circles. You have to play with a mobile midfield

Not sure how you're so certain that Colin is the club's best right back. I'm not suggesting that he's not competent but I'm just not as sure as you are that Colin is unquestionably our best right back.

How many games have you watched Colin play well at right back ?

This, i fear colin could be exposed with the movement and skill of the wolves players. I think we will have done well to keep 11 players on the pitch sunday, they dont need much to fall over.

Harding left himself on a yellow card with 80+ minutes to go on his debut. That didn't let us down, not at all, but if he lets the occasion get to him a little bit again, away at Wolves with 80 minutes left on a yellow card, they'll absolutely murder us.

This is a game for experienced, calm heads. Harding will get there eventually and he's definitely done a good job so far but this isn't the game for him.

Plus dropping him for this one means, like I said earlier, out best full backs both playing in their preferred positions. Utmost importance.

Spot on but you have to remember the grounds lovers are just trying to justify getting him back in the team and using Colin as an excuse, your right colin has done an excellent job where he is sorry ground lovers but he is not better than Harding full stop.

Fair enough Colin has played more games at this level but I'm interested to know which attributes, physical ?, skill wise ?, footballing brain ?? passing ability ? , dribbling ?, puts Colin above Harding ?
