  1. Erm…. 4-4-1? Id start with a 4-3-3 Lloris, Walker, Daws, Jan, Benni, paulinho as the cdm, Dembele and holtby in the center, with Lennon on the right, chadli on the left Soldado as the CF. Think capoue will need a little more time to settle

  2. You are retard.. Haha.. Even we are great team.. We need to start with eleven players.. Haha.. Mine

    Walker-daws-kaboul-rose

    pau-capoue

    Lennon dembele chadli

    Soldado

  3. Lloris

    Walker Kaboul Vertonghen (if fit) Rose

    Sandro Paulinho
    Dembele

    Lennon Chadli
    Soldado

    Subs
    Friedel
    Dawson
    ekotto
    sigurdsson
    capoue
    defoe

  4. Lloris
    Walker Dawson Kaboul Vertonghen
    Sandro Pauliniho Demebele
    Lennon Chadli
    Soldado

    Providing the above are injury free, I think this is how they will line up and this is the more likely shape.

  5. Replace Vertonghen with Kaboul (as he is injured). Replace Lennon with Townsend as Lennon hasn't shown good form in a while now where as Townsend looks lively.

  6. LLoris
    Walker Kaboul Dawson Vertonghan/Rose
    Dembele Sandro Paulinho
    Lennon Soldado Siggurdson

    Bench: Defoe, Townsend, Capoue, Freidal, Carroll

  7. I would push Lennon and Chadli up behind Soldado with Sandro still sitting in behind Moussa and Paulinho…

    Imagine if we had Lamela…and Bale decides to stay…then how does the team line up….Deadly!

    Graeme…you've counted wrong!

  8. I'd go for 11 players first of all rather than a 441 :)

    Pretty much your team but with Townsend for Lennon and Siggy behind Soldado.

    Loris
    Walker Dawson Kaboul Rose
    Dembele Paulinho
    Townsend Siggy Chadli
    Soldado

  9. 4-2-3-1 for me,
    Lloris
    Walker/Kaboul/Dawson/Rose(or BAE)
    Paulinho/Sandro
    Lennon/Dembele/Chadli
    Soldardo

    Vertonghen ain't gonna be fit, Bale is throwing a strop(if you believe the papers) . Even if Bale wasn't part of this media circus, where would he go into the team, and who would be sacrificed???

  10. Above can't add up I make it 11, anyway I don't think Verts or The Beast will play so
    Lloris. Walker Dawson Capoue Rose. Dembele Paulinho. Lennon Siggi Chadil. Soldado. If either Kaboul or The Beast are fit then lets have some!!!

  11. Think this match has come too early for Vertonghen and possibly Sandro for the full 90mins. Therefore, I'd go with 4-2-3-1: LLoris, Walker, Dawson, Kaboul (assuming he can do 90), Rose, Paulinho, Dembele, Lennon, Siggy, Chadli, Soldado.
    Subs: Freidel, Naughton, Fryers, Capoue, Sandro, Defoe, Townsend

  12. Lloris
    Walker Dawson Vertonghen BAE
    Sandro Paulinho Dembele
    Lennon Soldado Chadli

    Subs: Gylfi, Friedel, Rose, Capoue, Kaboul, Defoe, Carroll

  13. …………………….Lloris

    Walker….Dawson….Vertonghen….Rose

    …………..Paulinho…Sandro

    Lennon……….Dembele……Sigurdsson

    …………………..Soldado

    Subs: Friedel, Defoe, Capoue, Kaboul,

    Chadli, Townsend, Holtby

  14. Team if all available LlORIS
    WALKER KABOUL DAWSON EKOTTU
    PAULHINHO DEMBELE CAPOU
    LENNON SOLDADO CHADRI

    Obviously to come when fit or staying Bale Sandro Verognen

  15. I think we need to work under the basis that Sandro, Kaboom, Super-Jan and Holtby are all unavailable, so, I would start:

    Lloris
    Walker Dawson Capoue BAE

    Paulinhio Dembele

    Sigurdson
    Townsend Chadli

    Soldado

    AVB clearly won't agree with me! :( lol,.

    Lennon will get the nod ahead of Townsend, but for me, he needs to start producing and taking his effing full back on!!! – Awesome in defnse tho, that only been noticed last year by the masses!

    Also, AVB clearly doesnt fancy BAE, which is such a shame, as, yes his defending is lax at times but Ia m yet to see Danny Rose perform better? – Maybe he will this year,. Also, has anyone ever seen a more unreliable and erratic defender than Kyle 'labotomy' Walker??? – PLEASE PUT IT ALL TOGEHTER YOUNG MAN! – If only you could defend!! ;()

  16. Vertonghen won't be fit yet. But I also don't think Sandro will be fully ready (or risked) from what AVB's said so could be on the bench.

    Llloris
    Walker/dawson/Kaboul/Rose
    Paulinho/Dembele
    Lennon/Siggy/Chadli
    Soldado

    Subs: Freidel / Naughton / Capoue / Sandro / Carrol / Townsend / Defoe

    Injured/Not available: Bale / Adebayor / Vertonghen / Holtby / Parker / Assou-Ekotto

    In reserve: Gomes / Fryers / Stewart / Falque / Kane

    Looking at that I'd say (with the reported AVB further signings) we still need a Centre Back, Left Back, Versatile Attacking Midfielder, Striker and we're ready to go.

  17. Lloris
    Walker, Dawson, Kaboul, Rose (BAE-injured) otherwise swap!
    Sandro, Paulinho
    Lennon, Dembele, Chadli
    Saldado

    Looks very impressive IMO on paper at least lol Really hope BAE starts ahead of Rose.

  18. 4-3-3

    Lloris

    Walker Dawson Kaboul Rose

    Paulinho Capoue Dembele

    Lennon Soldado Chadli

    Vertonghen not fit would start over Dawson & sandro over Capoue when fit bale if he stays over Chadli

  19. Lets not be too hasty throwing inexperienced premiership players all into the first game together. We need the expose these players to the pace of premiership football over a period of a few games. Having Paulinho, Chadli, Soldado and Capoue in the starting line up would be suicidal. Lloris, Walker, Vertonghen (if fit) otherwise Dawson, Kaboul & Rose. Dembele, Lennon, Sandro, Paulinho, Siggi. Soldado.

  20. GK. Lloris
    RB. Walker
    LB. Vertonghen/Rose
    CB. Kaboul
    CB. Dawson
    CDM. Capoue
    RW. Lennon
    CM. Dembele
    CF. Soldado
    CM. Paulinho
    LW. Chadli

    Friedel
    Rose/Naughton
    Sandro
    Sigurdsson
    Townsend
    Defoe
    Adebayor

  21. I agree with your team but If we sign Lamela and Bale stays our future team should be

    Lloris

    Walker
    Dawson
    Kaboul
    Vertonghen

    Sandro
    Dembele
    Paulinho

    Lamela
    Soldado
    Bale

    Naughty Team !!!!

  22. Lloris

    Walker/fryers or capoue/Dawson/bae

    Sandro/paulinho

    Lennon/chadli/dembelle

    Solado

    Would play Kaboul but fitness ain’t there yet and it would give fryers a taste of pl but against a weaker opposition

  23. lloris
    walker kaboul dawson rose

  24. Thank goodness we have Capoue on board. Regardless, letting Caluker go was a big risk.

    When our players are all available our best defenders in central defense will be Kaboul and Vertonghen. In defensive positions in a back four you need players who are primarily good defenders and then good football players in their respective positions. For the unit to operate securely the full backs must be good at defensive duties. Our central defense is strong but our full back positions need to be just as strong. Walker was a much improved prospect in the latter half of last season but for a long spell prior to that improvement he was

    very suspect indeed. He really needs to improve his passing yet and doesn’t seem to have learned how to make the intelligent ball. He holds on to it and often plays a belated pass to a player that by then is covered but who had moments earlier been in a good position. With Lennon in particular he has done this more often than not. His pace can retrieve defensive situations but he has been playing with fire in that regard too. I would be happy to see Naughton moved to the right where he can become a good full back as he most certainly cannot play left side. He can challenge Walker and both push each other to improve the team.

    On the left side Ekotto is our best defender. Aside from his wobbly season last year he has been a high class full back by any Premiership standards. Rose is a winger primarily and has a long way to go to master full back play. I doubt he can do so either? Fryers might well come more into contention? Ekotto has his eccentricities but worse for him all evidence suggests his manager has little faith in him. His confidence remains under suspect scrutiny now as a result. If he can’t expect to re-establish first team selection this season then we can only hope AVB has a top left full back in mind to come into his present squad.

  25. Before I get abuse, Kaboul, Vertonghen, and Sandro are all doubtful with fitness. While everyone knows where they would slot into the team I believe we will have to move Paulhinho from B2B to DCM and put Capoue at CB for the first game… at least the below team is 100% fit…..

    ………………………Lloris…………………….
    Walker…Dawson…Capoue…Rose
    ……………………Paulhino………………….
    …………Dembele…Siggudson……….
    Lennon………………………………..Chadli
    …………………Soldado……………………..

    Once everyone is fit I believe this will be our strongest 11 – (assuming no further signings)

    ………………………Lloris…………………….
    Walker…Kaboul…Vertonghen…Rose
    …………………….Sandro……………….
    …………Dembele…Paulhino……….
    Lennon………………………………..Chadli
    …………………Soldado……………………..

  26. Tbf to Graeme there was only 10 players originaly on that list so I’ve been informed also Townsend can’t play as he stil serving his ban for betting.lennon has been extremely poor form so far and lacks goals and decisive passing/decision making when it counts. Until the team is ready I would go with a 4231 and switch to 433 when the players we need are available ie bale, creative midfield… So in that note my team would be

    Lloris

    Walker

    Dawson

    Fryers

    Rose

    Paulinho

    Copoure

    Chadli

    Siggy

    Dembele

    Soldado

    I think siggy could so well behind the striker, good though balls and offers a goal treat from distance and from follow up shots. I would also like tinder dembele in the front 3 to see his creative side and shooting bit more!

  27. Lloris
    Walker Dawson Kaboul Rose
    Capoue
    Dembele Paulinho
    Lennon Chadli
    Soldado

    Subs: Gylfi, Friedel, Sandro, Fryers, Vertonghen, Defoe, Carroll

    But we need an improve performance from Rose. In that last warm up game he was very good when attacking on the left but was very inconsistent when he was in defending.

  28. Lloris
    Walker, Capoue, Dawson, Rose
    Sandro, Paulinho
    Dembele
    Lennon, Soldado, Chadli

    Vertonghen & Holtby are apparently injured; Kaboul & Sandro might struggle to play 90 minutes.
