Green will be in goal.

Cole will start.

That should get discussion going :thup:

Assuming we have no injuries, I can see this line up:


--------------------------Green----------------------
Tomkins------Da Costa-----Upson------Ilunga
-----------Noble--------Parker------Hitz-------
---------Faubert--------Cole---------Dyer--------

Yes, Match of the Day at 10:30pm. Probably last though because Wigan v Blackpool is going to be one of the featured games. Wigan fans must be wetting themselves with worry - most of them always pick their Saturday work shifts so they can be back home in time for the last five minutes of Match of the day.

Actually, having looked at the Prem fixtures with Spuds v Man City at 12:45 and Chelsea v West Brom at 17:30, we might be an outside bet to be shown on live TV abroad at 3pm, so there might be a feed on some dodgy relay website somewhere.

Tottenham v Man City, 12:45
Aston Villa v West Ham, 15:00
Blackburn v Everton, 15:00
Bolton v Fulham, 15:00
Sunderland v Birmingham, 15:00
Wigan v Blackpool, 15:00
Wolverhampton v Stoke, 15:00
Chelsea v West Brom, 17:30

Aston Villa v West Ham is the 3pm kick off game that will be featured on Fox Soccer Network, meaning there will probably be a cracking stream with English commentary :thup:

That looks likely although I suspect Faubert will be playing deeper and Dyer will be central in front of a midfield 4.
With Barrera and Piq to be unleashed if things go wrong.

this will not be the starting line up this saturday or have i missed something, dyer did not play today and i doubt he will start. Faubert alongside Cole :shock: 3 man midfield ? Noble instead of Barrera. if it is the starting 11 then we will lose before we have started.

I'm reasonably well disposed to Tomkins, but he's not for me the man to be marking Ashley Young.

Wouldn't be surprised to see a 4-5-1 set up (and would choose this)

Green

Reid
Upson
Da Costa
Ilunga

Faubert
Hitz
Diamanti (Noble to shore it up later)
Parker
Barrera (Junior)

Cole (Piq)

I think id have Faubert at RB just to try cope with Youngs pace. Thought Noble was excellent today so pretty sure he will start, Looked better when Diamanti went off so i think he will go Boa Morte just for a battling and hard working prospective. Barrera wont start and will come on in the 2nd half to run them ragged.

Why wont Berrara start ? i hope he goes straight into starting 11 and Grant dont do a 3 month fanny about with him. Noble did do ok today but why has he took to not shooting when the goal opens up to him. On many occassions today he should of shot but passed. our midfield need to learn to let fly as soon as poss, not look for Cole all the time.

Not sure exactly on the team, but key points for me are:

-Not Tomkins at right back
-Give Barrera a start
-Put Diamanti on the bench
-For the love of God don't play Gabbidon

--------------------------Green----------------------
Faubert------Da Costa-----Upson------Ilunga
-----------Noble--------Parker------Hitz-------
---------Barrera--------Cole---------Sulejmani--------

I like the pace in this team we look set up perfect for the counter attack when the home team get on top of us at some point in the game i think we can nick a draw a good start to the season 1-1 :crest:
