    What side will we see and what formation will Frank use?

    I think we will see everything change. Going on the premise that Frank will stick to 1-4-3-3

    Roos
    Bogle Tomori, Pearce, Malone
    Elsnik or Jozefzoon, Evans, Holmes
    Thomas or Bennett, Waghorn, Marriott

    I'd be surprised if both Waghorn and Marriott start against Oldham, MA,
    though they could play 45 minutes each. They may not be fit enough yet
    by Lampard's standards. So far Lampard seems wedded to 4-3-3 with two
    proper wingers and one striker.

    Will he even rest anyone or just assume that our players are already fit
    enough to play 3 matches at the tempo he wants inside 7/8 days?

    Here's my guess on the lineup --

    Roos
    Wisdom/Bogle Keogh Tomori/Pearce Malone/Lowe
    Mount Johnson Bryson/Evans
    Josefzoon Waghorn/Marriott Bennett

    They should be good enough to beat Oldham, unless we play like we did
    in the cup games against Carlisle, Portsmouth, Forest Green etc (take your
    pick). In which case, it will be another eye opener for Lampard.

    If they both start then a 1-3-5-2 formation might weel be a better idea.

    I really doubt Frank will change formation. He seems pretty set on 4 3 3

    In his 1st few interviews he talked of changing plans, horses for courses, not being a one trick pony..... my words not his.

    I too think that the midfield is crying our for more numbers,  which necessitates a back 3.

    The problem is that George Evans can't play in two positions  at the same time....

    1-4-4-2 wouldn't necessitate a back 3....... Wink

    ...... and several other formations as well.
