What formation will Leo play on Wednesday?

The team is used to 3-5-2, I'd be suprised if he changed it. Personnel - who knows. We might see some of the kids if Liddle etc. are involved in selection.
Also think it will be the same formation and if Edwards gets the job it would make sense as he plays the same way doesn't he?

McNair as a 10?

He's been tried in every other position. Why not this one? 🤣

On a serious note, I think he'd be decent there. Obviously not a Remirez or Tomlin, but I don't see anyone else who could fill that role. I think he'd be steady there, if not flash.

I can't think of a single attribute of his that would suit that position. I would expect any manager that picked him in that position to be sacked before half time.

McNair is not good enough for any position. He's decent cover for several but he's not good enough to play in midfield, defence or full/wing back. Jack of all trades but master of none.

I would have normally picked Crooks in that position, but he just seems completely void of any attacking threat right now.

I think he'd like to go 4-2-3-1 but hopefully realises we'll be completely overran in midfield.

4-3-3 would be my guess.
3-4-1-2

McGree, Crooks or Watmore can all play there.
No chance McNair plays no10 role

Depends on whether he feels that the team just needs a tweak or he wants to make a complete change. Given that Jones is suspended anyway he might opt for 4-3-3. That's a huge risk because the team has just spend almost a year trying to play 3-5-2. If it goes wrong we would end up with an Agnew style shambles
If he plays 4-3-3 then I would expect
Steffen
Dijksteel - Fry - Lenihan/Clarke - Bola
Crooks/McNair - Howson - McGree
Watmore - Muniz - Giles

If he sticks with 3-5-2 I think the only difference is that he'll play with two holding midfielders and 1 attacking and keep a more compact shape.

Wilder needs to take his best friend Clarke with him because if anyone else plays him they havent a clue i like leo so hope he wont play him.

442.

Dijksteel Fry Lenihan Clarke
Watmore Crooks Howson Giles
Muniz Hoppe

When we're attacking get Dijksteel and Watmore to both push up so it's more like a 343.

Crooks, Muniz and Hoppe in/around the box so plenty of height for the wide players to aim at.
