Pre Season Friendly v Sarasota Metropolis

Carson, Roos, Mitchell

Bogle, Bateman, Richard Keogh, Davies, Buchanan, Forsyth, Malone, Lowe, Macdonald

Huddlestone, Shinnie, Evans, Thorne, Bird, Knight

Lawrence, Jozefzoon, Bennett, Mitchell-Lawson

Waghorn, Marriott, Martin, Whittaker.

 

Looks like we're taking Bateman as a RB. For those who don't know, he plays predominantly as a CB, but has played at RB and DM a number of times. Surprised to see Sibley miss out and Knight stepping in. It makes sense for us to keep the numbers at 6 for a 'CM' spot though.

Players missing: Ravas, Wisdom, Johnson, Butterfield, Holmes, Sibley, Anya, Blackman

Ravas and Sibley are probably staying behind to stay with the U23s. Wisdom and Holmes still injured(?). Johnson, Butterfield, Anya and Blackman hunting for a new club?

 @Ghost of Cloughyou consistently provide some decent insight into the youth players that most aren't so aware of.

Thanks.

Interesting to see Martin and Thorne going and others with no future at the club missing out.  Much as I rated both of them I couldn't see either getting into a FL team. 

On a different tack, anybody itk about how well Davies and Forsyth have recovered?

I assume the players who got an extended break will be there in time for this game?

Wouldn't mind seeing us try Marriott and Waghorn up front together but based off of what people have said about Cocu, his favoured formation is 4-3-3, so with that in mind ....

1st half:

Roos

Bogle - Keogh - Buchanan - Lowe

Sibley - Huddlestone - Shinnie

Waghorn - Marriott - Lawrence

 

2nd half:

Carson

Wisdom - Davies - Forsyth - Malone

Bird - Johnson - Holmes

Bennett - Whittaker - Jozefzoon

 

That leaves the likes of Butterfield, Martin, Thorne, Blackman and Anya not involved. Most I assume will be on the look out for new clubs

When did we sell Evans?

I would like to see maybe have 443 formation say for this game love to see martin and Bennett togather and have Lawrence sitting behind them.

I like to see thorn play in defance midfield role and have shinne and jasion knight. 

But like to see how defance will it be high line or sitting back mopping up the preasure. But it would to have good to have different sides out to see were everyone is at.

What does everyone else think.

Still pretty sure you can only have 11 men in the U.S for a 'soccer' match

Be interesting what happens with this because the weather has been torrential rain and storms. If there's storms, they may well interrupt the game or abandon it, they don't do sport outdoors in lightning over there.

Huh??

It's probably safe to assume that coco will want to have a look at all of the senior p!Ayers he bothered to take over for pre season.

Wusses, but what did you expect from a nation where people have to dress up like Evel Knievel to play Rugby.

This was posted before Cocu was even appointed, before Johnson left and before we even knew who would be travelling to Florida (hence my suggested teams including Wisdom and Holmes) .... but sure, it is very likely he will use the senior players who travelled.

Love Sarasota but Naples and  Key Largo and Key West are my favourite destinations 

just been to Naples for the upteenth time.  Also stayed at Sanibel which was ace.  Thinking of flying into Tampa next year as Miami is awful, 2 hours to get through the checks

Judge Kash has found you guilty of the crime that is not including Martin in your team.

Send him down!
