Not a fan of mcgeady and Naismith out wide tbh

Not much choice with Pienaar playing like me in his recent cameos.

Not ideal for Naismith but 4-3-3 allows some similarities to being up front and he's tactically aware enough to use Seamus.

Exactly what I'm hoping for.

Although I'm expecting the more standard 4-2-3-1 with Barkley on the left.

Every chance. And we'll look suitably awkward, and struggle to exploit their injury crisis because of it.

If we are going with Barkley out left I think we'd be better of going with the 4-3-3 i put up but just with him swapped with Naismith.

We sort of played like that away at Newcastle last season (except with Ossie more central) and allowed Barkley to stay up more.

Think we should let Barry sit in front of the back four and play besic and barkley as the cms.


Simply simply lovely

Point taken but I think it would be fairly criminal to move Barkley out of the centre after easily his most effective performance this season, just as he builds up some real confidence, and would be fairly pissed off with Martinez if he does it.

He seems convinced that Barkley can/will be able to play pretty much all of the attacking midfield positions on the pitch, and maybe eventually he'll be proven right, but this isn't the time to persist with a idea which might bear fruit in a couple of seasons. We have to narrow our focus and be as calculated as possible in this period.

i'm 99% sure Southampton will let us have the ball and try to play on the break. They do not have a team hardly to put out against us.

Would you put lukaku out wide and have Naismith in a false 9 like arsenal last season?

Exactly! Like the arsenal game which turned out to be one of our stand out performances of last season.
I'd go:
                        Howard
Coleman jags stones baines
                Besic  barry
                    Barkley
lukaku         Naismith  McGeady

Then put Kone on at some point in the second half. ;-) job done! 😃

I think the main reason he did that against arsenal twice and Liverpool because they are two teams that like to dominate that ball and he wanted to us Lukaku on the right as a way of a quick counter. I don't think he would want to use it in games like this where chances are we will have more of the ball.
