It seems an age since the Tottenham game. It seems that Nigel Reo Coker and James Collins will be playing, but Upson is still unfit. The one thing I am most interested to see is whether Mark Noble retains his place. If he doesn’t, there really is no justice in this world, but I can’t quite see Noble, Quashie and Reo Coker playing together. It only leaves a space for one wide player, presumably Yossi Benayoun. I suppse with the lack of form of Boa Morte and to a lesser extent Matty Etherington you could do that. We should remember that Balckburn are a dirty team and will look to win the midfield battles. An interesting dilemma for Curbishley.
Another thing I would like to see tried is Tevez playing on the wings. It’s where he seems to spend most of his time anyway and seems to be most effective. It might mean playing 4-3-3 sometimes but has got to be worth a try.
