Clarke Sorensen Jeanvier Field
Mokotjo Woods Yennaris
Benrahma Forss Judge

Subs: Bonham, Mepham, Canos, Maupay, McEachran, Sawyers, Konsa

Lots of changes to starting line up and a very untried defence. But the strength of the bench suggests that if it looks disastrous Smith will have first team starters to bring on around the pitch.

Still a very strong looking team even with all the changes. As expected (by me at least) Moses still no where near a squad place.

Our strength in depth is incredible. That’s better than our A team from just a couple of seasons ago.

Oh, I've guessed at the formation there to fit it into how we've lined up regularly the last couple of years. From the friendlies, when Forss has been playing, Smith lined up 4141 rather than having our more usual front 3. That might be more like how we actually appear (Woods being the one in front of defence, Forss up front alone).

It is actually quite frightening how strong our squad is this year. That is a very good starting 11 and would challenge wuite a few teams in the Championship IMO.

Correct line up that should be strong enough to triumph, forss and sorenson gain valuable experience and the rest gain match fitness should they be needed in the proper competitions.

Agree, and if we lose we cant blame it on the team selection.

Whilst I agree that the squad looks good on paper and tonight's "reserve" team looks very capable, for reference I thought I'd go back to the Oxford embarrassment and see the starting line up. Some surprisingly strong names in there!

The following all played from the start and were 3-0 down after 12 mins:

Vibe
O'Connell
Barnett
Bjelland
Nico

I'm sure tonight won't go as badly but let's not get ahead of ourselves!!

Wasnt Oxford the famous "bad luck" start to the season? The pitch was ****, Bjelland got injured and the manager Marinus (sp) was out of his depth.

.................some will.............

Standard for some. I think its a promising starting 11 and confident that it should beat Southend.

Probably the first time since we've been in the championship that we can play a Second string and not actually have any complaints

At least Judge won’t have to face Hyam, who broke his leg.

Hyam was transferred from Ipswich to Southend at the end of last season, but rather ironically is already out injured.

He's barely been fit since that incident.
