I agree with previous posts that we need to give our players more freedom, and play with a lot more pace. This doesn't just mean having fast players though, but being more direct and thinking faster. We take way too many touches on the ball at the moment.

I'd like to see Sims given a real shot. I liked him when he played last year, he seemed very willing to run at people which I think we need. Also I agree with a previous poster Lemina should play in midfield.

I think we should take advantage of how many good cb's we have, and our attacking wing backs, and go to 5 at the back (3 when attacking) . Romeu and Lemina would make a strong midfield. My only concern would be a lack of creativity in midfield, we'd need Lemina to play well from the start and be our own (probably lesser) version of Dembele for Spurs.

My lineup for next game:

Forster (just about)
Hoedt
Stephens (think VVD is still a couple weeks off first team football)
Yoshida
Cedric
Bertrand
Romeu
Lemina
Redmond
Sims
Gabbiadini

Bench: McCarthy, McQueen, Bednarek (maybe VVD is sharp enough for bench? ), JWP, Davis, Boufal/ Tadic, Austin.

What's your guys top starting 11? A lot of competition in midfield which is great. I think my personal line up would go something like this:
Gk: Fraser Forster ( Haven't seen enough of McCarthy to put him in)
Defence: Cedric Hoedt Vvd Bertrand
Midfield: Lemina Romeu
Redmond Boufal
St: Austin Gabbiadini
Subs: McCarthy Yoshi Stephens Jwp Tadic Davis Long.

Ok so we know the who's who and what's what. what would your starting 11 be assuming everyone fit and available. glad I'm not manager because mine is missing quality of davis, either long, Rodriguez or Austin and youth of targett, reed and prowsey but
Mine would be

Forster
Soares
Fonte
Van dijk
Bertrand
Redmond
Romeu
Hjobjerg
Tadic
Boufal
Long/ Rodriguez/ Austin.

If the club really want to progress then I think the current players fall into 3 categories. Good enough, needs to prove themselves and times up needs replacing. This is how I see it:

Good enough:

Forster, Mcarthy, VVD, Fonte, Bertrand, Targett, Davis, Tadic, Redmond, Hojbjerg, Long

Needs to prove themselves:

JWP, J-Rod, Austin, Boufal, Cedric, Reed, Pied

Times up:

Yoshida, Classie, Romeu, Martina, Gardos

What are your thoughts?

Agree0 Disagree0

Your crazy!,
Romeu needs improving
Long is turkey
And why is Target in the good enough category, he is our second left back!

I Think we are set for the season now
Really like to see are youth get a chance and bringing anyone else in would kill that chance.

But my wish list is still
Spider and chambers and the OX they will always be welcome back to saints for me

As for a dream singings we need and interim CB and bony would be well worth a bid as was a real star at Swansea
Can't see bring in a unproven European forward is going to help

My starting 11 and subs

Forster
Cedric fonte vvd Bertrand
Romeu
Hojberg Davis
Tadic
Austin. Long

Subs
McCathery
Target
Stephens
Jwp
Classie
Redmond
j rod

Back up
Gallagher
Reed
Pied
Mc queen
Jones
Barnes
Sims
Yoshi
Gardos.

If what CP said about Redmond is true then I wouldn't be surprised if we don't sign anyone at all. Although it does look like one more may come in but chances of getting two or more look very slim. I think one signing at most and successfully shipping out martina will conclude our business this window. And if hesketh's recent performance is anything to go by, then we might actually have our tadic competition already in the squad.
Puel does like his diamond and attacking fullbacks, so I'm thinking this could be our strongest eleven:
Forster
Cedric VVD Fonte Bertrand
Clasie
Davis Hojbjerg/ JWP
Tadic
Austin/ Redmond Long
With McCarthy, Pied, Gardos, Yosh, Targett, Romeu, Reed, Hesketh, and Jayrod at our disposal, we have cover for every position as well.
Anyway, what do you guys think of the diamond formation? I noticed some fans aren't a big fan of it but that is the tactic that got Puel's Nice to 4th 2 points behind 2nd place Lyon. Opinions?
