|Lambo’s biggest decision for the summer|
at 18:25 19 Apr 2019
Stick to his 4-3-3 formation and therefore have to bring in at least 3 new starters (right back, left winger, striker) plus presumably others (a left sided centre half? He often mentions it) or stick to broadly this squad (obviously there would be some signings) but use a different formation (diamond? 3-5-2?) that suits who we have.
|What is Lambo up to this week?|
at 13:44 16 Apr 2019
I'd hope he has a couple chats lined up
1. With Bart and his agent to find out if they're looking to leave. If he goes we need to sort it early so we can get our new keeper in early (i'm assuming Gerken will leave).
2. A similar chat with Collins - does he want to stay? If so PL has a decision to make but I suspect he knows his answer. (I have a feeling he wants him to stay, possibly meaning Nsiala will leave?)

Downes not good enough in the holding role by looks of tonight.
Nsiala just too rash (probably knew that)
We need to find a formation where Judge is central.

Will be interesting to see how PL balances pick his best team and looking ahead to next season today. Suspect Emmanuel and Nsiala have done enough to keep their places in the team. Having rested Skuse on Tues I wonder if he’ll rest Chambo today? Suspect Bishop will be back, probably in for Dozzell. I wouldn’t be surprised if Ndaba gets a place on the bench.

|Skuse and Chambers to miss one the next two games?|
at 16:54 11 Mar 2019
PL has already talked about them taking on too much, and given our situation it seems silly to run them into the ground. Gives us a chance to look at others too.
Nsiala for Chambers tomorrow, Nydam for Skuse Saturday?
I also wonder if Bishop will get a bit of protection. Downes if he’s ready? I bet Elder gets a game this week too and perhaps Emmanuel.
Three games in a week gives PL an excuse I hope he takes.

Here’s the team I would pick for Sheff Utd and Leeds-
Dave from Accounts
Mickey from the ticket office
Rich from HR
Pete from Press Office
Gareth, assistant to the regional manager
Tom the Steward
Chris the Chef
|Difficult selection for PL this weekend|
at 16:54 5 Mar 2019
Whilst my instinct is to only pick those who we expect to be here next year PL will be keen to avoid getting a thrashing. I wondering if he’ll try to balance things, something like this-
Pennington Chambers Nsiala Kenlock
Downes Skuse Nolan
(ie probably our best defence, assuming Collins is out, but only those hopefully with us next year ahead of them. It’s not ideal as Jackson needs a partner really and Judge is clearly better at no10 but I feel we’ll need the solid 3 in the midfield.)
