RPL Athletic- Season 17

The Initial line up
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.

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

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...

Best to wait for Gezza BUT I'd assume we're still praccying at 10pm on Tuesdays aye Al.
Cheers mate, I should be home in time for a knock around tomorrow night if my trains run on time

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

We'll try out different players tonight to see what suits everyone ahead of the Cup on Thursday

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.
