We showed some promise last night chaps. Can't decide on formation yet.

If nothing else, this season will be a damn good laugh.

Can you let me know if you are about for the cup or not?

Overall I thought that was pretty reasonable considering.


I thought the last formation worked quite well in getting in behind the wingbacks consistently comparatively to the first game. Town kept getting in behind our wing backs who were far to advanced but that should be remedied with more folk on. We missed Vinnie's composure on the ball when he got kicked and I think we all need to remember that we're mostly terrible at skills, mostly.

I'm not sure there is much point mentioning that we should be doing more A passing or less holding onto the ball when under pressure in our own half......

I think we need to adopt the shoot button policy when the ball is at our back 4.

I prefer the first formation and like Gerry think we will be better with a full team online. Personally I think shaqiri's pace was a little wasted in the second formation and although hannay defended more and I pushed up abit the stamina was struggling with the back and forth to play CM.

Aye, much improved last night lads.

The diamond just needs the CDM and two wingers to be mega disciplined as in both 442 games there was not a lot in front of our back four, particularly in the second.

I'm at the behest of Sky broadband today, shouldn't be a problem but you never know.


In a 4-4-2 we could always try Ribery upfront and try the Steiger at CAM. If Vinnie isn't getting use of the pace then ultra passing/distance shooting combined with stamina is a good mix for CAM.

Right, thoughts on this guys:

DR - Andy - Lahm
DC - Gus - Boatang
DC - Mick - Dante
DL - ANY - Alaba
DMC - New Pete - Gustavo
ML - Wallbob - Shakiri
MR - Gerry - Muller
AMC - Scott - Ribery
SC - Pete - Robben
SC - Hannay - Gomes

4-4-2 Diamond.

Gerry and Wallace providing the wing play, new Pete covering for Charlie in DMC.

Scott, fancy ribery this week? No problems if you want Shakiri though.

New Pete - you'll need to be disciplined.

Big Gus, shout at and organise the defence, if the DL any fails badly, then we'll swap it.

Wouldn't mind ribery but concerned about the stamina, happy to stick with shaqiri as I know how much I can push his sprinting now and should be able to keep him off the injury list. At cam if I track back to around the half way line it should be enough to save stamina and be in position to connect the midfield and strikers
