We would never create anything, the front 3 would be marked out the game. Thomass doesnt deserve a starting place so in your line up id drop Latz back into Thomas's place and bring in Allen into midfield.
Personally though id have Latz RB, Fadz in place of Thomas and Godden ahead of Simms out of pure loyalty to Godden and Fadz to see how they cope in that system. I get there is no room for sentiment, but fuck it, i'll be sentimental for a couple of games.
I personally don’t see how Saka, Wright or Simms would be marked out of the game, particularly Saka who looks like he can shake almost anyone off him when he’s got the ball at his feet.
As for starting Fadz and Godden, no offence (and it’s just my opinion anyway) but I believe that’s exactly the sort of mentality that has gotten us to where we are, trusting favourites and making them the basis of our team rather than looking at what we’ve actually got to work with and which formations or styles suit us. I don’t think either of them should be starting if we played a 4-4-3 or a 4-2-3-1, they’re both too slow, we need to play at a higher and neither of them have looked great in the last 4-5 games.
