DF has said that we need a good response from Millwall (and Villa) after the long break. He said that it has given him time to look and think about things:

'(the break)It's been good to judge things in a neutral and objective way. It's been good for the lads to have a break. Having the guys for only two days before a game isn't perfect but it's part of the business. We want to improve and fight back after such a setback. This season has been a bit of a roller-coaster so far but we expected that a bit in the early stages. It's been a big change and you can't just press a button to make it okay. When you have a setback, you need to stand together. The guys on the pitch need the support from the fans but we have to perform too'

I don't like the fact that managers say the fans are a part to blame by saying stuff like 'the players need the fans support' why do 26k odd fans turn up at Carrow Road and why do we nearly sell out our away allocations - that is your support right there!!

'To be honest it is not perfect when the guys are there (in training) just two days before the game with such a long break'

Don't use that as an excuse Mr Farke!

He said it will not be easy tomorrow and the fans will need to be patient:

'We need patience (from the fans/players). It will be hard to create chances against them. In defence, I want an attitude where you give your life to defend your goal. I want this attitude always. We've spoken about that and are looking forward to the game.'

Anyway team news:

DF has confirmed that Klose is fit and will be ready for the game: 'Yes, he is available'. DF confirmed all the 7 international players are fit.

Jerome is also fit. DF said he still had an issue on Monday but has trained the last few days.

Thompson - Jarvis - Pritchard - Lewis all still out.

I would go:

Gunn

Pinto
Hanley
Klose
Stieperman

Wildschut
Tettey
Reed
Murphy

Wes

Oli

4-4-1-1 - I am not a fan of one up top but what else can I do. Maddison a bit lightweight so get some strength with Tettey. Play Stieperman at LB. I wouldn't throw Klose straight back in if I didn't have to but Zimmerman, Martin and Franke haven't filled me with confidence.

Subs:

Matthews - Zimmermann - Husband - Maddison - Jerome - Watkins - Vrancic

I think DF will go:

Gunn

Martin
Hanley
Franke

Pinto
Husband

Stieperman
Maddison
Reed
Murphy

Oli

5-4-1 or 3-2-4-1

Husband looks very weak , and I dont want to see total liability Martin anywhere near the pitch . Your team is excellent Bears with 4 across the back

If you are right Bears and DF goes with what you have put, then there really is no hope for us. I like your back four. I would be a little bit adventurous. Gunn, Pinto, Klose, Hanley, Stiepermann, Trybull, Maddison, Reed, Wes, Murphy Oli. Subs Mcgovern, Zimmermann, Wildschut, Tea Bag, Vrancic, Watkins, Jerome,

All I ask is that we appear to know what we are doing, and appear to be bothered. The defense have just not turned up for most of this season, absolutely clueless. Yes I want to win every game, but I can accept losing as well as long as we played well, not when we just give game after game away.

I too don't like it when managers try and shift blame onto the fans - the fact they are there at all is support in itself, if you want extra they need to instigate it through doing well. Also weird how he says it will be hard to create chances against them. Not being funny but they've had as bad a start as we have had, and we are the home team and the team thats spent much of the past few years in the Prem - surely it is them that should be saying that!!

I nearly got it right.

So it looks like a 4-5-1. I have no idea who is on the right wing is it Maddison, trybull, vrancic?

Subs

McGovern, Hanley, husband, Jerome, Wes, reed, Wildschut

I'm glad I didn't bet with SC!

Why isn't Hanley starting? Maybe DF didn't want two players in defence who haven't played forages, which makes sense

Mate says it's 3-5-1-1 with stieperman left and Murphy right then Maddison as the number 10.

Sky have it as 4-4-1-1 vrancic right Murphy left
