I think the atmosphere will be intense and we will up our game. A comfortable 2-0 win.
3-1 to the blue boys.Stoke are terrible away from home their only real threat is ariel and we have the Cbs to deal with that!Would love to see Gueye and or Strac(if any game is gonna suit him it's gotta be this one)get some minutes at the end.
I love this lineup, but would swap Drenthe and Bily. Drenthe is more dangerous on the left and Bily is better suited to playing with Baines because he drifts inside allowing Baines to overlap. Same thing with Drenthe and Coleman. Drenthe cutting in allows coleman to overlap. This runs the risk of over congesting the middle of the park, however we seem to be not getting enough people into the box on crosses anyways, so filling the middle may not be a bad thing after all. In the end though, we have no chance of seeing this lineup. O well.
I have no idea why people want to play Vellios and Strac against Stoke. Are we trying to play the game they want to play? I'm fine with one of Vellios or Cahill to batter and battle their CBs but even though I think Saha is dangerously out of form he'd do well turning and running at them.
Agree. We don't need to emulate Stoke to beat them. We are still better than those lumberjacks.
Still do you think we are going to play a free flowing passing game against them or do you expect to see Jags hoofing a lot of long balls? I hope I'm wrong but I can see us playing long ball, and if we do that I would rather have someone up their with a fighting chance of winning one of those long balls.
We are not the same since Arteta and Pienaar left, but with Baines, Drenthe, Osman we are still capable of playing something similar to football betweentimes.I think we have no chance if we play long balls against Stoke anyway and Stracq is not the answer.
