  1. I expect us to play Hamza alongside Ndidi to nullify the threat of any quick counter attacks which I see as United's most likely way of getting something out of the match. My big issue is it'll mean we can't play Tielmans and Maddison centrally, and I think they are most effective with wingers flanking them. If we play like this I cant see us creating as many chances as I'd like. I think we're most effective right now with Barnes and Albrighton out wide and just the one DMC. Understand why we might play 2 against the supposed top 6 (especially away) but I cant see us having a better chance than this of taking the game to United at Old Trafford. This isn't like Hull were at start to 2016/17 season, or other injury ridden teams we've played against and ended up losing too, we know to take United seriously, and yet the momentum we're slowly building up shouldn't be stifled by over cautious Puel like tactics. I want us getting an early goal and forcing United to play a different style to the one they'd like to play. I want us going for the win because it'll give us the boost to take to the next match against Tottenham too. Win this game, with confidence running high and 3 wins and 2 draws under our belt in the first 5 games ... it'll be a start like we've had once before ... back in September 2015.
  2. Saw that. Is Ndidi injured? Not even on bench.
  3. Had a "first game of the season rustyness" feeling about it. Some positives to take. Hopefully we'll look hungrier and crisper next week. Lacked any clinical edge in the final third, but Wolves are a good team and after the curse of losing our opening day fixtures the last 3 seasons maybe a draw is an omen greater things are to follow...
  4. Two DMCs ... Puel is back!!! Nah going to be 4-3-3 ... Hamza given more of an advanced role. Maybe plan to bring Praet on second half if all is going well - while not changing tactics too much. Does allow us to sit deeper in midfield if needed and draw Wolves out into a game their less familiar with too.
  5. Is Mendy definitely match fit? Picked up an injury in the Rotherham friendly didn't he? Otherwise this is what I'm expecting to see.
  6. Evans and Maguire starting together. He's staying .... I hope. ?
  7. Day straight after the Atlanta game, is this another give everyone lots of game time like the Stoke Rotherham a week before?
  8. Red cafe meltdown when Maguire plays. I'm hoping partnering him back up with Evans for 45 minutes.
  9. Was looking at this earlier. All I can say is I hope they've underestimated us again. (Although I doubt they've underestimated us quite as much as they did in the 2015/16 season.)
  10. Delighted! Keep hold of the rest of our first 11 and exciting times ahead. Ideally another winger/striker and get rid of some of the now redundant squad players but I'd be happy if the window closed tomorrow.
  11. I never normally do as well at these as I know I should and kick myself after, but I'm proud to say I got 11 out of 11 this time and (what's more) I knew the answers. Look at me with my big head. ?
  12. Could be a tactic to demand more wages. Don't want to seem too keen. I'm pleased to read reports suggesting we're trying to push the deal through as fast as possible. Think we need to be the first to act to give us best chance of getting him.
  13. Really happy with our back 4 right now. Something I didn't think I'd be saying after the woeful defending of set pieces previously. As I've said on another post I no longer hide behind the sofa every time the opposition get a corner. Assuming we keep this back 4 (or are able to replace Maguire with someone solid) it is covering our chances at the other end that I'd like to see an emphasis on next season (and players bought who can help that happen). Our midfield is creating chances, and I'm happy with the set up we have now with Tielmans (hope we keep him) and Maddison threading the ball through, but there's still too much expectation on Vardy to score all the goals. We need someone to help ease/ share his burden.
