The Initial line up

Posted Image

There will changes throughout the season with the LB/RB swapping with the LM/RM. I've asked Rovers about continuing practice Tuesday at 10pm. Even if they don't appear we'll play a couple of club games in our usual positions.

Ahoy Athletic! :bye:

Looking forward to playing with the Argies this season, they seem to have a devastating front line.

A bit of a result in getting Argentina lads. A good solid squad so the other teams may live to regret not conspiring to deny us a top 6 team
Some great dealing by Gerry in stage one along with a solid display in the auction and we're looking strong in each area.

Now all we need are some diagrams...

Welcome back Pilot and hello to all the new faces.

Agreed with what has been said so far, we have another strong group of players this year so another title's not out of the question.

Practice will be key so hopefully I'll see you all on Tuesday.

Di Maria at left mid I presume? After a quick look we appear to be spoiled for quality players, especially in the middle and up front

:lol: gets better everytime, nice one Dan!

Aye Al tons of decent players in midfield/attack. Defence is decent too when we move some guys around. I think Gerry was playing Lavezzi at LM and Di Maria RM but there were options aplenty and I think we're having a proper look in praccy on Tuesday. :)

Either Lavezzi or Di Maria on either wing. I've not heard anything from Pilot or the new guy Jankoville......

The reverse angle where you see the utter shock on Messi's little face is also class. And Casillas hits the ground with so much force that he somehow pushes the ball BELOW the ground. Amazing stuff!!

Good to be on board lads and was a good knock around last night. Will take a few session for everything to click into place but we looked very good at times. Not sure what Razzle's preference is for his CB but I would like Burdisso please. Otamendi is a good option as well as with Demichilis but Burdisso felt the best from what I tried.

I think I only tried Demichilis but he seemed fine to me. Happy to stick with him until I make a mistake, blame the player and demand someone else.

Demichilis looks to be a bit slower than Otamendi but there isnt much else between them. Demichilis looked good last night though!

Aye I'd rather have Otomendi meself (as Demechelis is slug-like) but as you say mate it's up to Razzle who he wants!

I had consumed a beer or two last night so I might not have noticed the pace issue. Let's give Otomendi a run out tomorrow so I can compare the two.

I'll be on for practice. It would be good to get the whole back four together so we start to form an understanding.

Mardigan, if you're on tonight, I'll talk you through how we approach defending at Athletic. By all means tell me to get fucked if you don't think it's going to work but I want you to have an idea of how I normally play.
