    It's a bit ridiculous to have a must win game in September - but this fixture feels very important ahead of the week off Premier League fixtures.

    4-4-2?

    I think we need to shake it up a bit...

    442, they have a shitload of chances and take the lead in the first half and then the players rally and equalise or narrowly lose. Or they batter us. I won't be paying much attention to be honest I'm still annoyed about last Saturday.

    Difficult to go through the bad run we have had - irrespective of the opposition - without confidence ebbing away. I think that Shakey (well named) should try to get a grip starting by dropping Mahrez. This guy has already left the club in effect and it can't be good for the club morale for him to be picked week in, week out, irrespective of performances.

    Shakey’s comments in this article don’t suggest he is thinking of anything other than 442.

    Basically Iborra has to get used to a two man midfield and we aren’t going to change.

    4-4-2 Vardy will get shut out, Mahrez will get shut out, Gray will come on 80 mins, Shinji off at 70 mins, King will get shat on by supporters. It's like i've read this story before

    It is very close to a 'must win' game. Our fixtures so far have offered us something resembling an excuse (Huddersfield aside) so we really do need to step up in these so-called 'easier' fixtures. Thing is, Bournemouth haven't been an easy opponent for us in the past and we've had some right scraps down there. It's not an easy place to go looking for 3 points.

    That said, I'm optimistically believing that our showing against Liverpool will have given us some confidence and motivate us. I don't see there being any surprises in selection though I can see a case for Gray starting in place of Mahrez. Mahrez was off his game against Liverpool but has otherwise been ok. If Gray does get the nod, he needs to show (as he did against Liverpool) that he is capable of thinking and playing a team game. If the game allows, I can see Iborra getting some time off the bench.

    Given form, fitness and opposition, I'd go with this line up:

    Schmeichel
    Simpson Maguire Morgan Fuchs Chilwell
    Iborra N'Didi
    Mahrez Okazaki
    Vardy

    Whilst I like the look of the formation, I think Albrighton would better suit the RWB role. Would be harsh to drop Simpson though.

    Stop wasting your time with fantasy formations and tell us which team you would pick in a 442.

    Debbie probably lacks mobility these days. That said, arguably so does Wes.

    Debbie Harry Maguire, like it. Gonna try and think of some others.
