Perez to start, a hint from the club?

 

We could certainly do with him, the attacking options look so much better with him in the side.

 

 

They've been posting photos of players and ex players all day after asking for suggestions.

Wouldn’t surprise me, Rodgers seemed to be trying out Ricardo in a more central/attacking midfield role in the last few mins against Slavia

Just a guess:

 

Schmeichel

 

Amartey (if Evans not fit), Ndidi, Soyuncu

 

Ricardo, Mendy, Tielemans, Hamza, Castagne

 

Iheanacho, Vardy

 

 

Can maybe understand Ndidi in a back 3 vs Burnley

Jesus christ that is so horrible it's brought on my IBS

Well, that line-up has him at left wing-back.

If that team is correct, we've managed to change formation, added Mendy and Choudhury yet not rested anyone who needed resting lol

 

Wouldn't surprise me. Anything to avoid Under starting lol

If that is the team then expel us from the Premier League immediately, that's Gary Megson and welcome to 2007 my friends. I've just turned 24 and I own a £400 pink suit from Joseph's.

I fell asleep before the end of the Wolves match last night (it was 1-1 at that point). I dreamt the final score was 4-1 so I think I’m psychic. I also dreamt we beat Burnley 3-0 so there’s no need to panic tonight, we’ve got this.

Mind you, I did also dream that I sh1t the bed which fortunately didn’t happen so you never know. X 

Yes, but I did, that's close enough.  You are psychic.

Rodgers has lost his head if we line up like that

I think you have to factor in the opposition.  We don't have the players available to play around them so stick in some of our big brutes to match up to their big brutes,

 

(By the way, tender years is never an excuse for a pink suit).

They are better drilled when it comes to being big and brutish…. It’s not our game at all

 

Whilst I appreciate we are light that line up is plain weird

not really surprised if Geoff is right

 

wilf dropping into the back three helps us with the long balls lumped in

 

wing backs allows ricky and timmy to play in their best positions 

 

hamza and pappy double pivot to cover either side behind the wing backs

But our big brutes are a bit better than theirs and we'll need them for the set piece showdown.

 

I dunno, just seems like we haven't got many options without Barnes and Maddison and with Vardy off the pace.  I don't know what it's gonna take for BR to trust Under in the league if that team's right.

You do have to factor in the opposition but its best not to try and match them up at a style of play we don't tend to play that well. What's the game plan with that team? We will still be vulnerable at set pieces as we always are and we have absolutely no creativity or pace in the middle of the park or out wide. 

 

Our only hope is we can go a bit more direct and win the 2nd balls but that midfield is horrid.

Keep the faith.  This is  Burnley not Bayern.
