I would play dendonker instead of mouthino but rest tge same as you Jimmy.

I reckon it'll be 343 as that's what we've played in the friendlies since we returned from the Spanish camp. The problem we have is balance with no fit naturally right footers in the backline other than Coady, and he is going to play centrally to organise.

This doesn't solve the balance issue, but no one has mentioned Marcal in the back 3. Yes, he's played wingback for all his brief time here, but he has played on the left side of a back 3 many times in the past, and I recall he did so against Man City in the Champions League the season before we signed him. He's more of a natural defender than say Saiss, who let's not forget is a converted midfielder.

I can see the front 3 being Traore, Jiminez and Trincao, but the midfield will be interesting as I think Dendonckers engine will be needed, probably above Moutinho's know-how.

Looks good JimmyMc. Think Bruno will be quicker with subs as required.
Will Bruno be adventurous and leave Traore and Jimenez upfield when defending corners?

13 Aug 2021 09:04:22
If we play 4 at the back, I personally would play with a diamond shape midfield:

GK: Sa
LB: Ait Nouri
RB: Semedo
CB: Coady
CB: Saiss
DM: Dendoncker
LW: Trincao
RW: Traore
CM: Neves
FW: Silva
ST: Jimenez

Ruddy, MGW, Marcal, Moutinho, Hoever, Kilman and Podence (if fit)

Guessing really but my call 343 against Leicester and Spurs moving to 442 if we need to chase the games late on, with a 442 starting line up given a try against Forest in the League cup.

13 Aug 2021 10:52:21
Jas, I would prefer Kilman in Saiss's place. Podence, if fit, I would pick over Silva, at least for 60 minutes. Better to start Podence to test his fitness and match sharpness.

13 Aug 2021 11:34:10
Jas M. Nearly agree with that mar mate.
Saiss though, liability at the back inmho.

13 Aug 2021 11:44:55
Jas M that will not be the starting 11. Who is going to take the free kicks and corners? Don’t tell me Neves who can’t get the ball past the wall.

13 Aug 2021 12:17:13
I honestly forgot about Donk when I posted this. Agree he should start to be given more starting minutes over Moutinho, who wouldn't have more than 1-2 years left.

Kilman deserves more opportunities this season.

Trincao could take set pieces?

Also if Rafa Mir deal falls through, could be like the new striker everyone has been asking for. But would need some training to mesh more with the group.

13 Aug 2021 12:43:00
Rafa Mir will be gone. He doesn’t want to be in England and we are just trying to get more money from Athletico. Surely they have players we could take in part exchange.

13 Aug 2021 13:00:57
E from Wombourn : Admire your optimism thinking we’re getting corners and free kicks in dangerous areas of the pitch, starting the season with a patched up team and rated as a 5/ 1 shot with the bookies hardly inspires confidenc.

13 Aug 2021 15:18:45
E from W, does your negativity know no bounds? Who will take the corners! I don't know but let's be honest, Moutinho wasn't the best at them last season so why not Neves. Have you seen him take corners to know he isn't that good? Or how about Trincao, Ait Nouri or Semedo.

If everything went well and we won all 38 league games winning the title you'd probably complain that the grass at Molineux was the wrong shade of green.

Hoever Wing back
Marcel Wing back
Dendoncker Right centre back
Coady Mid centre back
Kiliman Left centre back
Saiss. Left midfield
Neves. Right midfield
Traore. Left-sided attack
Jimenez. Centre forward
Trincao. Right-sided attack
My team rather than the team I expect to be fielded.
Its success will be down to the ability of the wing backs to get forward and overlap Traore and Trincao. Time to think outside the box and I’m excited to see what Lage might conjure up. New era. COYW!

13 Aug 2021 18:27:04
Nah, can't have that as the team because at least one of the players will have a boot lace that 0.25cm too long meaning that Fosun have allowed our club to go to wrack and ruin and proving they've lost interest.

14 Aug 2021 11:58:16
I'd like to see 4231

But I think it'll be a 343 so I'd like

Saiss (not happy about)

I fear a good hiding today. Hopefully it scares Jeff enough to spend some money!
