Anderson wouldn't get anywhere near my starting line up

This will get nasty. Their form is centred around beating the lower teams. They are a very attacking side, but don't defend too well. Our static 4-2-3-1 with zero off the ball movement, high levels of laziness and an isolated Haller won't cause any problems for their defence, whilst their attack will be firing in shots against our ****. I really feel a 5+ tonking coming on. :oops:

Would anyone else be tempted to bench Haller and play Antonio up front if (as we know we will) we stick with one up top?

Roberto has to be dropped. He was about a 4 out of 10 against Spurs and that's one of his better games.

I'm presuming Martin was signed because the club thought he was playable, not just because he's Alvin's son.

Other than that, have a 50 metre dash with all the outfield players on our books and start the 10 fastest ones.

Nice one Samba. That's my banker bet of the weekend then, Chelsea to score 6+ goals. Could pay for my Christmas :)

Manuel can either change formation or get the sack at this point surely. I understand what type of football he wants to play but he does not have the cattle for it by any stretch. We simply have to play a 4-3-3. Anderson is useless up the pitch. Haller is too far away from goal. Rice needs more help in the midfield role. My team would be

Martin
Fredericks Ogbonna Diop Masuaku
Sanchez Rice Noble
Antonio Haller Anderson

I would except we need him to play instead of Anderson

That's a good positive side right there - would be happy with a point but 3 would be better .

I’d quite fancy this, but Balbuena would have to replace Diop, he’s suspended. Or I’d be tempted to shift Rice and Oggy over to Cresswell back at LCB.

And I couldn’t leave out our best player at the moment, so Snodgrass for either Anderson or Yarmolenko.

Noble in the middle on his own against Kante, Jorginho & Kovacic? Could see that ending in tears!

I read that as him in the middle with Antonio and Anderson (who I’d swap with Snodgrass personally).

The width is from Fredericks and Masuaku.

Although, you’re quite right, will never happen

I could see Anderson playing as a no.10, but he and Antonio in central midfield? Seriously?

I like the idea of three at the back with Fredericks and Masuaku giving us width. They, along with Antonio, are the only players in our squad who will run / overlap down the line. But, I can’t see MP changing his formation or tactics. The gaffer wants out.

Sorry, that’s what I meant by Snodgrass instead of him. I do think Antonio can work from there though.
