With Cassetti at RWB, it looks more like 4-4-2. Cannot believe that he is preferred to Anya.

Agree this looks more like we are going 4-4-2, i keep reading that he adapts to games and so maybe this is why he has set the team up like this.

3-5-2 and 4-4-2 both work with this 11.

Would have preffered Anya and Battochico in for McGugan and Pudil

To me that line up looks nothing like 4-4-2, mainly due to having no wingers in the team.

Murray played on the right a lot in his first season, and Pudil can't defend anyway, might as well be a left midfielder

There was only one Scully says...

There is to much happy clapping and optimism for our new owners and I for one sense that we are seeing the beginning of the end of our club.
Lets face facts, we have no definite signings, no indications of what they have to offer and despite what happened before austerity measures and caution and along with blaming what went before is not the answer. You only have to look at the mess the country is in at the moment to see why this type of approach is not acting in our best interests.
Not convinced by what I have seen or heard so far!

This is the most ill thought out post I have ever read on this forum.

I would say building a new stand is a pretty good indication of what the Pozzo's have to offer.

And how can you use the phrase 'let's face facts' when there are none contained within your comment.

I have to say well done for being the most stupid, ill informed poster on here.

As it turned out, it was 5-3-2. Fair enough, but when we went behind, that was the time to bring Anya and Forestieri on.
