    • We can not play Defoe up front alone away from home, you are basically asking us to be on the back foot all game if you do this……

      My team 4231- Friedel, Walker, BAE, Verts, Kaboul Sandro, Livermore Lennon, Bale, Sig Kane

      I reckon AVB will select

      Friedel Walker Gallas Verts BAE Livermore Jenas VDV, Sig, Bale Defoe

      TRUST ME IT WONT TAKE LONG BEFORE HE FINDS OUT HOW BAD JENAS IS

  1. I don't think I would have Lennon playing on both the wings at the same time !!!!
    My team is 90% the same,

    Friedel

    Walker Vertonghen Kaboul Assou-Ekotto

    Lennon Sandro Sigurdsson Bale

    Van der Vaart

    Defoe

  2. ;) Lennon is good but not sure he can play on both wings lol. My team is same as yours if you swap Bale for one of the Lennon's

    • Freidal
      Walker. Kaboul. Vertonghen. B.A.E

      Sandro. Huddlestone
      Sigurdson
      Lennon Defo. Bale

      I forgot the wingers lol but this should be our startin XI

  3. Harry's gone so we will now be using our brains!!!! So a a brand ne formation 3-2-4-1 For more denfensive set up swap VDV for Defoe and play Sandro

    Friedel

    Vertonghen Kaboul Dawson

    Walker Assou-Ekotto

    Lennon VDV Sigurdsson Bale

    Defoe

    • Love this set-up but think we'll be 4,2,3,1 once the signings are all in and players are back from injury, see below:
      Lloris
      Walker Kaboul Dawson Vertongen
      Parker Sandro
      Lennon VDV Bale
      Adebayor

      2nd XI
      Friedel
      Naughton Caulker Bassong A+E
      Huddlestone Livermore
      Jenas Sigurdsson Rose
      Defoe

      Europa subs: Gomes, Gallas, Smith, Bentley, Falque, Bostock, Parrett, Townsend, Dos Santos, Coulibaly (and this boy could rocket all the way up to the first XI in the next 12 months…pure quality….)

      COYS!!!!!!!!!!

  4. Friedel
    Walker Kaboul Vertonghen Benni
    Sandro Livermoore
    Sigurdsson
    Lennon JD Bale

    I think this will be the team vs Newcastle, but as the season progresses, id like to see VDV in the Livermoore position.

  5. Will play 4-2-3-1 for sure, so:

    Friedel

    Walker – Vertonghen – Kaboul – BAE

    Sandro – Sigurdsson (Or livermore)

    Lennon – VDV – Bale

    Defoe

  6. AVB will want to play 4:3:3.. Difficult to see this happening with our squad now.

    Back line picks itself..

    4:2:3:1 Fits 'em in.

    Sandro – Livermore

    Lennon – Sigurdsson(VDV at 65mins)-Bale

    Defoe

  7. Pretty impressive if Lennon manage both wings at the same time.
    Anyway….. the team (4-4-2)

    Friedel
    Walker-Vertongen-Kaboul-BAE
    Lennon-Sandro-VDV-Bale
    Sigurdsson-Defoe

    (Perhaps VDV is a better striker than Sigurdsson, but need him as playmaker)

  8. Brad Friedel

    Kyle Walker Younes Kaboul Jan Vertonghen Benoit Assou-Ekotto

    Sandro

    Aaron Lennon SIgurdsson Rafael Van der Vaart Gareth Bale

    Kyle Walker Michael Dawson ( C ) Younes Kaboul Assou-Ekotto
