Shoehorn XI vs Strongest XI

25 posts in this topic

I just don't see a way to get the best out of Pogba when he is being made to do Rooneys running playing from deep. Needs to be running into space, but the way Rooney drops off, it will just be congested. 

 

Would like to see is try either a midfield 3, or Mata in the #10 role, who roams more and would give #PP6 the space he excels in. 

 

However I can see a Falcoa, Rooney and RVP situation happening where he tries to fit everyone in. 

 

What will happen for the next few weeks until he has to make decision to drop the Elephant in the room... 

 

------------------------De Gea - - - - - - - - - - - 

-Valencia- Smalling-- Bailly/Blind--Shaw

--------Carrick/Fellaini/Schneiderlin---------

---------------Pogba/Herrera------------------------

-----Mykt/Lingard -----Rooney----Martial---

---------------------------Ibra----------------------------

 

With Shaw and Valencia playing so far forward, not sure if that team has enough defensively with Carrick, Smalling and Bailly to cope with counters. 

 

I would swap Rooney for Mata/Herrera for more balance, and to get the best from Pogba 

 

Thoughts?

De Gea

Darmian - Bailly - Blind - Rojo

Carrick Schneiderlin

Micky T Pogba Martial

Ibra

No faith in Luke Shaw or Valencia, You man need to sign some defenders

Sub Carrick for Herrera if chasing the game. 

Sub Martial and Micky T for Valencia and Luke Shaw if park the bus and possibly Pogba for Fellaini

Pogba need to be played further forwards so he gets chance to justify his fee with goals.

 

Could actually be the end of Rooney, he isnt the big dog in the squad any more.

Don't trust Shaw but trust Rojo? 

 

One of the dumbest defenders in the league

After 5 games he will resume his title as one of , if not the best LB in the league.

Only 21 and already played 70+ PL matches since his time at soton even though he missed like 80% of last season.

Made team of the year in 14' as well.

Played a vey disciplined role for france cos matuidi couldnt and kante was just not good enough/needed

if carrick sits then pogba can bomb on but his best position is left wing or attacking midfield...

I don't think Mkhitaryan is walking into the squad. Just look at the pecking order from the community sheild squad.

Id like to see

Ibra

Martial Rashford Lingard (interchangeably)

Pogba (B2B)

Schneiderlin (Intercept & recycle)

Shaw Bailly Smalling Valencia

A centre back pairing of Bailly and Smalling is the stuff of nightmares. Blind has to play. 

If mkhitaryan doesnt walk into the team, we have some serious issues. I think he will do and rightly so.

The fact Rooney is going to start almost dictates a 4231 formation. Carrick pogba, martial rooney mkhi, ibra.

Dont think we'll see much change from that early on (other than pogba needing to get fit)

Personally would like to see him go diamond with this line up as first choice

 

---------------------------------------De Gea----------------------------------------------------

 

Valencia------------------------Smalling----------Bailly--------------------------Shaw

 

---------------------------------------------Blind------------------------------------------

 

-------------------------------------Pogba--------------- Schneiderlin---------------

 

----------------------------------------------Mkhitarayan------------------------------------

 

--------------------------------------Rashford------------------------------Martial-------------------

 

 

Can change into a 4-3-3 Mkhitaryan dropping as the right winger and Martial dropping as the left winger with Rashford as the CF with Rashford and Martial sometimes interchanging Martial as the CF and Rashford on the left wing. Can also change to a 4-2-3-1. Schnerderlin and Blind deep lying with Schneiderlin having more license to get forward, Pogba as the number 10, Mkhitarayan on the right, Martial on the left. Or 3-4-1-2 Blind dropping back making the 3rd CB/Sweeper with Valencia and Shaw as genuine wing backs
