Oh Monday, Monday... Now is the time for Big Sam to prove that he can instill some professionalism in to the side. Playing well and not even coming out of it with a 0-0 draw has the hallmarks of the Roeder and Grant relegation sides. It's surely about mental toughness as much as anything.
Some goals would help too. Sears has yet to prove himself as a scorer so we should stick Cole or Carew up front with Freddie. A midfield of Noble, Parker, Nolan and Taylor should be the best in the league - we just need to prove it at Doncaster, a match which will shape our season.
