    Burnley side to face Nott'm Forest; Heaton, Lowton, Mee, Tarkowski, Ward, Hendrick, Cork, Defour, Gray, Barnes, Walters.

    Hmm. Walters on wing?

    Its a 433 supposedly Walters right gray central and Barnes left.

    Theo doing his annual trolling.

    2 first half goals.

    Kolasinac with an assist, and assist of the assist. Also, he takes the odd set piece. Could be an interesting alternative.

    If someone told me Theo was starting I'd be moving mountains to have him in my team in a minute.

    Kolasinac assist. Had him in an earlier draft, may try to squeeze him in again.

    Jesus generally plays up front.

    Dawson goal.

    Southampton line-up for the friendly against Saint-Etienne:
    Pied starts RB. No Cedric in squad.


    Forster
    Pied-Stephens-Yoshida-Bertrand
    Tadic-Davis(C)-Romeu-Boufal
    Austin-Gabbiadini

    Any legitimate fear of City actually going with the 5-3-2/3-5-2 formation? Fits Aguero and Jesus into the same team but it likely means Walker and Mendy provide the width rather than Sane/Sterling etc.


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,813 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    Walcott LOL
    Every year

    I'm secretly praying for this to have a slightly OOP City Defender in Walker and more importantly I could hold on to Aguero.

    As every season, if owning Aguero is wrong, I don't want to be right:D

    Arsenal 3-2

    OG, defender diverting in a cross from Theo.

    Surely on for 3 Baps now


  • Registered Users Posts: 47,813 ✭✭✭✭ km79


    Dawson goal.
    They lost 2 1 and didn't play well apparently
    Brunt went off injured too


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,649 ✭✭✭✭ SlickRic


    Solanke goal.

    Cedric rested after the Confederations Cup I'd say.


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,828 ✭✭✭ shineon23

    Yeah I was saying that on another thread, he's either not back, or just back to preseason. I read somewhere he's touch and go to be ready for opening Premier League fixtures. Pied playing well also.

    I'm steering clear of him.

    *Mic drops*

    Ya have Dawson in at the moment for his attacking threat but the frustration of owning one of their defenders last season is still fresh in the memory!

    Wijnaldum goal.

    A penaltyless Aguero playing 2nd fiddle to Jesus at 11.5 (the same price as Lukaku) just doesn't do it for me.


    Nothing makes me sadder than to not want Aguero :(

    Giroud goal.

    Oh I was going to have him in from the start. May go with Forster or another defender instead.

    I blame Pep. But I'm thinking Ill have to at least start without Aguero


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,649 ✭✭✭✭ SlickRic


    Iwobi (Giroud)

    He could still be ready. But I just want to risk 5.0 early on, Will be keeping an ye on their last few preseason games. I wanted to stay away from the Centre Backs until VVD sorted himself out but I'll probably go for Yoshida.

    Bertrand seems most nailed on and added attacking potential but 5.5 is a lot to have in a mid table defender.

    There's still a high chance Aguero is on pens imo.
    He took one last season (against Boro)with Jesus on the pitch.
    He wasn't on the pitch when Jesus took one against Leicester.

    Half time.
    Gabbiadini looking very lively, went close just before the break.


  • Registered Users Posts: 34,649 ✭✭✭✭ SlickRic

    He plays so central.
