Did I see Rondon linked with a move to Barcelona or was it some sort of freaky dream?!He is a good striker so we will have to look out for him. Hopefully we will have too much for them and can get our first win of the Koeman era
In the absence of Shogs' infinitely sexier match threads that contain actual graphics and are well written and researched (which he assures me will return in time, once his lappie is sorted out), might as well get the match thread going for this one.Nice to have another Saturday 3pm game. The opponents got off to a good start with a 1-0 win at Palace, and they will see it as a chance to get 6pts on the board, while we're still finding our feet under the new manager. Rondon looked a bit of a handful on the brief highlights I saw, and they went with 2 up top. Having said that, they have got some first team players that the lids might accurately describe as 'pyar shite'.Difficult to predict our starting line-up and formation. Do we stick with 3 at the back or do we go to a more conventional 4-3-3 (or the dreaded 4-2-3-1)?So if it's a 3-5-2, maybe this: Stekelenburg Jags Williams MoriMcCarthy Baines Gana Barry Barkley Del/Bolasie LukakuAnd if it's a 4-3-3, maybe this: StekelenburgHolgate Jags Williams Baines Barry Gana BarkleyDeulofeu Bolasie/Kev LukakuIf I had to guess, I'd say it was more likely that we'll stick with the 3-5-2 for now, because it worked well, because we're away from home and because we'll have additional pace in the side with Big Rom and Bolasie.As for West Brom and Pulis, well let's not dress it up - they're boring as fuck and fairly shite, but occasionally effective, aren't they?This is how they lined up last week: FosterDawson McCauley Olsson EvansPhillips Fletcher Yacob Gardner Rondon BerahinoWhat do we reckon then lads and lasses? Be lovely to get our first win on the board. Be nice to have Big Rom back, assuming he's fit, and hopefully get a look at Williams and Bolasie.
Anichibe gets a mention above. It reminds me that,OK we fucked up badly on Niasse, but just think we got £8m for Victor, £8m for Naismith, £12M? for Rodwell, probably one or more I forget amongst the players we sold on who never really made it later. It puts Niasse into perspective, swings and roundabouts and all that.
