Final Pep-aration for the season

Post by Moonchester on Mon Jul 31, 2017 8:15 am

So what do you chaps (and chap-ettes) think we need to do between now and start of the season?

I think we have 1 more friendly game coming up. mostly for fitness and I'd like us to work on the 3 at the back formation again. To me we have looked a lot more potent going forward with this, but still a little shaky at the back but getting better each game.

Personnel wise, I think we will be bringing in 1 more attacker - Sanchez?

And we need to think the ranks slightly from what we have also,
Bony out
Itchy out
Nasri out (looked OK pre-season but wont get in the squad for matches)
Mangala not sure.. might keep as cover if we go 3 at the back, only Tosin really there now after the other 3?
Roberts out (don't think he is ahead of the other youngsters)

Foden and Diaz into the first team squad. keep them there and not in the EDS or they will stall and not develop fast enough now.

Sancho can do one if he has is eyes more on the cash than the game..

did i miss anything for the minute?

I'd probably get another CB if we want to play a back 3 all season long as we've no back up and we'd have to switch to a back four if someone gets injured or suspended. Sanchez or Mbappe would be nice. No one else needed as Danilo can play in either side and is cover ( and very good cover it seems) for walker and Mendy. If we have a good enough kid to promote to the 1stcteam squad as full back cover, that could be a good thing. Foden and Diaz promoted to the 1stcteam squad both for their own development and they'll get some league minutes as well as league cup minutes. I'd like to see a couple of players for the final pre season game such as Bernardo

Sancho should be left to stew especially if he has 2-3 years left in his contract. If someone offers £50M plus add ons for him, then maybe let him go.

Not sure about Tosin. If we're playing 3 at the back he stays as cover even if we get another CB

I think we need one more left back & maybe one more CB (would be graet if the player could do both). With the other Silva still to come we have plenty in attack.

I think playing 3-5-2 we can get away with wing backs as in wingers playing there. Could see B. Silva, Sterling, Sane playing from them side positions on odd games?

So I think the 3 full backs we have now should suffice.

If Mangala goes, think we will look for another CB.. but could just keep him as not really that many out there affordable and available.

I'm not overly confident with sane and sterling as cover having seen them last season unless there is a change in the attitude to defending

Sane was excellent tracking back last season (or the last 6 months anyway).

He was better at all he end of the season than at the start of it, I'll grant you that. But he is as better attacking at the end of the season than at the start too. So, he naturally got better. If he played wing back,he'd have to do more than just track back. He'd have to defend properly as well. And he showed he was a shirker for a tackle and a turner when there was a shot.

You need proper, and better, backup for a long hard season.

Not really sure where you're going with this? Sane and Sterling are attacking wingers. They're not wide attacking defenders. Would you want Walker and Mendy as the players setting lots of goals up and scoring goals???

The point made earlier was that we had theses players who could play the roles of mendy or walker if we didn't get any more FBs and those guys were injured or suspended. Danilo covers one but no-one to cover two out
