Another fascinating fixture, the suspense is eating me alive.

I'd bring in Odemwingie for Freeman and Golbourne for Bryan.

2-0 Blackburn.

401 City

I'll be harsh with this one, I'd say drop Reid for this. Partly down to the fact we can experiment in the last few games (more than likely) and that Tomlin seems less effective when played out wide than in the CAM role. Bobby had a good game yesterday but feel we need something a bit different here.

Odemwingie in for Freeman
Golbourne in for Reid

Bryan moved to LW and Tomlin into CAM.

Certainly Luke has to be dropped and play Odemwingie. I could see Wilbs starting as well TBH.

Think we try and keep the ball down more when Kodjia is up top, more often than not with Wilbs we look to lump it forward, as the lone striker in this set up that doesn't work well.

I don't disagree bud but it just wasn't sticking when we were under the cosh last night. Wilbs will hold the ball and give the rest a chance to get up field as the ball isn't coming straight back at our defence. That's my thinking. I don't think that's JK's game in all honesty.

Attacking 442... why the hell not..

......................Pack..........Smith
Odemwingie................................Tomlin
....................Wilbraham...Kodjia

Odemwingie seems hard working, the concern would be Tomlin in a 4 man midfield, however stick Golbourne behind him and I think we'd be more solid.

As you say, why the hell not? Kodjia up top on his own means more work for the defence so why the hell not try 4-4-2?

I'd like to think LJ is trying different things in these last few games, could be why Freeman has been getting a starting place for example, giving him the chance to try and show something before the summer.

Think we can get the point we need here, then we can relax for the last two games. 1-1.

Not even sure that I can even be bothered to go to this one; if the players don't care, why should I?

Is it really down to the players 'not caring'? I look at your first 11 on paper and it's an absolute mess. If you don't recruit well in the summer, I'll be following the path of SF_ and sticking money on you to go down.

Anyway, we won't beat you - I'd be happy with a draw and even that seems unlikely.

Alarm bells would be ringing if I was a Bristol City fan.

Johnson is trying different things in the last few games and messing about? You're not mathematically safe. It's not inconceivable that you'll lose this and Mkat beat Brentford, when will he realise the danger? Could be too late. You're the only club Mkat can realistically catch given your GD and actually if you lost 3 and they won 3 you're certainly down because of your GD, whereas we have a cushion and so does everybody else. Not the time to be experimenting.

Just my outlook on things and show him to be very naive. Warnock's still talking about finishing the season unbeaten and how 'we're not safe yet' while your dwarf is 'trying new things'.

Nothing may came of it, but remember this in the future, he's showing his naivety.

Last Saturday's performance was horrific, the players are off on holiday already now we're pretty much safe.

I'm pretty sure they won't beat Brentford; they looked very strong vs us.

I doubt it'll happen but anythign can happen in Football.

If they win and you lose, they'll be a panic and all im saying is, remember how Johnson has supposedly been experimenting in the last few games.

If we go down, I'll eat my left bollock with a knife and fork and post it on here. There's not a chance.

Johnson has said nothing about experimenting, all I've seen him is highlight the importance of getting a result as usual.

Mixing it up because "why not" as some have put on here would be madness in my eyes. Relegation may be a long shot but nothing like that should even be considered until we're safe.

It was only us on here that mentioned 'experimenting' and certainly not LJ.

Properly annoying me now that Johnson isn't starting Odemwingie.

The thought of paying to watch Wilbraham next season is nauseating.

Be glad when this season is over.

We've conceded a goal to Danny Graham, we deserve to be relegated.

Wilbraham starting up top on his own, meanwhile Peter Odemwingie is sat twiddling his thumbs on the bench.

That's a weird way of trying to get him to sign a permanent deal here.

That's what happens when you play your top scorer.
