will absolutely loathe the clubs attitude if we play a back 3 against leeds.

But i just cant see him dropping coady in a world cup year,

Collins/kilman rotation is what i forsee - not what i want.

Just feel it will be back to bad habbits again come first game in august with lage saying he didnt get all the players he needed.

Maybe we will go to a back 4 after qatar, but he might well be sacked by then

Coady world cup prospects should have no bearing, you might be right that they do but the best players should be picked for the best formation.

Bruno has spent a heck a lot of time and effort drilling this team for a system of four at the back. The KC pairing has shown itself to be a good one and can only get better. After all the effort, if Bruno then decides to drops the 4 for a 5 as our main system of play it may well demonstrate that he doesn't have the courage of his convictions.

A few of us actually driving up from South, save the charges and the interest was high. Beers and a lift? Only potential downside is 90 minutes of football, but that's what the concourse is for!
Huzzah!

It will probably remain a back 3 for away games…. We’ve done relatively well away from home since we came up, using that system!!

It’s our home form that’s been the problem… and that’s where I think we will see the back 4 employed in particular!!

Horses for courses, and in general terms I think that’s not unreasonable!!

Not so sure that it would be the courage of his convictions. More that he doesn't have the players to score more goals than we let in. That's the general result when he (and Nuno) tried to break from it before. The results so far have been promising. But still, that's been friendlies, remains to be seen whether it works in the Premier.

Think the formation that we play in the main friendly this weekend will tell us whether we will play 4 or 5 at the back against Leeds. Think he'll go with 4.

If anyone does get the call to play from Bruno and hence has a spare ticket (or 2!) please let me know. :smile:

Lage doesn’t strike me as a guy who will pick a team based on sentiment at such an important stage of the season as the opening run in when it is porobably our most bankable run of games on paper for the betterment and feelings of one player.

from what I saw against sporting , I now think he will stick to the 4 and coady will be a sub option

I would like to see Ronan play instead of Dendonker - it won’t happen but he is “forward thinking”, can pick a pass, is good at set piece delivery and looks to play between the lines to feed MGW, Neto and Podence.

For all the question marks over Hwang, I'd probably start him in the middle as he the closest thing to a square peg in a square hole we have, and has some physical attributes. The thought of Podence up front battling against Cooper and Koch does not inspire. I'd also resist the temptation of MGW in a wide position. If we do go 4-3-3 I'd prefer to see him in the middle ahead of Dendoncker.

You'd like to think that if Bruno is going with Podence as a 'false 9' then he has set up the combinations in training appropriately. That front 3 have the pace and trickery to cause real problems if we get it to their feet or in behind.

God forbid if we start seeing a game plan fail in the first 10 mins and we see balls lumped from Kilman & Collins up to Podence..... :eek::mad:

Impact Subs - Chem Campbell, dendoncker, Ronan, Bueno, coady

Honestly wouldn’t bother making a sub if I was Bruno. It would be quite telling to the board

That's my team. Suspect Donck will start in a 433 though.

Frightening 11 and no subs whatsoever that could make a difference. Poundshop is really taking the **** with his refusal to spend any money.
