Also, we need the points!!! No time to f*** now!  Tonight’s lineup should provide lots of the ball for sure ... question is, can we break them down with those attacking options

Glad Herdman is playing it safe by putting out our strongest squad. I like that.

This was always the logical thing to do. If we struggle, we stick to a strong squad. If we are up by 4 goals, we can sub in 6 guys at the 65th minute and see how the young guns ( U23 ) guys play together.

Looks like it's back to the box midfield with Ricketts playing the Davies role and Akindele playing the David role.

Good stuff if so. Should have never went away from that in Orlando. Glad to see Herdman giving it another go, if that is what's going on.

I thought it looked like a box too based on the personnel.

Not sure about that. I think Ricketts might be better suited to be the centre-forward; Akindele plays more often on the wing at club level right? but to be honest I'm not sure exactly how this team is lined up except the back 4.

Akindele can play wing or centrally but does his damage up the middle

After a couple of days it would have been silly to field anything but a reasonably experienced side. We need the points and can't afford to spend half the game trying to gel and feeling each other out. See what chemistry builds throughout the week. Depending on how the first game goes tonight they will also have a better idea of how strong the opposition is for the second leg!

My guess on formation

Looks good and makes sense.

Two things @SkuseisLoose :

-I think Akindele and Ricketts trade sides. When Ricketts is in a pair or on the wing, he is usually more on the right side, whereas Akindele is more flexible. Often on the left for Canada IIRC.

See:

- Since Miller plays LB sometimes, I think he would be the left-side-centre-back so he trades sides with James right?

There is no way most if any can play 3 games in a week. You have to think the objective is to field your best 11 against Iceland

Quit your'e whining, he rested Laryea, isn't that enough?? 😛 

Awww. We are always so buoyant, boisterous and banterful before the national games starts.
