    It's a good post but I do disagree with the tombola. Robbie hasn't been one for unnecessarily changing the team unless he's had to because of injury and, lately, the arrival of new players.

    Can maybe argue Hibs was tombola too going 4-3-3 with 3 x CM's

    Only because Robson was injured though.

    This is a more valid example, no doubt. Can understand it though as we were playing a much better team then normal and it looks like Robbie wanted 3 more solid midfielders in there.

    How no play Sporle there? Or Reynolds? Both left sided players? how move the consistent first pick RB to LB

    Yeah, that baffled me! I wouldn't play Reynolds at LB because he'd get rinsed for his lack of pace but Sporle was surely signed as a left-back!? That aside, I would agree that Robbie's been nowhere near as erratic in his team selection as Laszlo was. Thank fcuk.

    If we did get 'horsed' on these two occasions because of the 'tombola' selections maybe, just maybe, we can forgive Robbie et al.
    We've not been getting 'horsed' much since.
    Didn't Troy Brown play in the two 'horsed' games?

We have a striker who is far too good for this league and it's papered over a lot of cracks. We have however, finally started playing to our potential and it's coincided with players playing in the correct positions, playing formations that they know and are used to. He then goes and plays a 4-3-3, a formation that we never use, in our hardest game of the season, and whilst we got a draw, the team performance really wasn't very good. They didn't know how to play the formation. Why did he do this? Who knows but it seems like he didn't feel he could leave Harkes out whilst at the same time wanted to play Powers. He also brings Pawlett straight back into the reckoning. Why did he do this? No one actually knows because Pawlett is ****e. Appere should be starting. He's been fantastic all season.
    So there is still that 'Tombola' element which was absolutely highlighted in the cup game. Robbie is doing a lot right, but he is also still capable of getting it bizarrely wrong for reasons only he could answer.

    As for Harkes, he's split opinion on here and I've said more than enough on him but I'd echo Arabknights comments 100%.
    You're wasted on here mate.
    Jurgen Klopp not looking for an assistant?

    I could not give a shyte what formation he plays as long as he gets us out this goddam league! Whatever he is doing, it seems to be working!
