@ChrisBramms Think I preferred Jos' line up at Millwall when he played 4-6-0. FF at wing back doesn’t sound right to me. Please prove me wrong! #swfc

@RocketOwl1986 Playing Forestieri at left wing back is like buying a Ferrari leaving it in the garage and taking the Ford Fiesta out! Garry Monk tactical genius #swfc

@Matt_Smith_1983 Thinking about it, Monk could have played a blinder here with this formation switch. Just hope whoever’s on the left side of that back three had their Weetabix this morning... #swfc

@_ElliottJackson Well, you don’t get more bold than Fernando Forestieri at left-wing-back. A must-win match this evening.

@wearethefarpost Come on Wednesday. Let’s stay positive, get three points and see where it takes us #swfc

@owl4life1867 I am happy to admit and concede that if you’ve gone to Luton tonight, you’re a better #swfc fan than me. Even more so if you also saw us at Barnsley at Saturday! Safe journey to you all you absolute nutters.
