as the preferred formation? assuming all players are fit, its tricky, this.

4-2-3-1 gives room for a "no.10" role, ie Toral, or Crowley if he ever escapes the memorial cupboard. but that formation also brings in at least one of Bela and Sanchez by proxy, who cut inside for a living.

3-5-2 in its QPR Away guise gives us good conventional width with the wing backs, and means we can play Leko up front with Juke or Hogan... but no room for the no.10 role, and less game time for Sanchez especially, who's our most creative player.

nice to have the problem though eh?
i wanna live outside, live outside of all of this

The Huddersfield game will be interesting. Does he stick to the 352 from today or does he bring Sanchez and Bela back for a 4231. Does he also bring in Clayton as he clearly likes his experience.

Tough calls to make.

Two games in a few days might be considered too much for MSJ to start, considering his lack of match fitness.

Will MFI be available ?

He clearly doesn’t fancy Crowley so will only play the 4-2-3-1 when Toral is fit, can’t see us moving away from today’s setup.

Think he might start with Juke and Hogan.
Tell you what that crack is really moreish.

I think you can play a number 10 in a 3-5-2 as well, cos you can have 2 holding midfielder than have Toral as the 3rd midfielder and he can get forward as well but then you would need him to defend as well, more than he would in a 4-2-3-1

Gardner was so effective defensively today though, I would imagine with Karankas reputation that he wouldnt want to give up that defensive stability
