At LCM?


Should be Monto-Biglia-Kessie


I've lost all hope on Hakan as a CM, but he looked promising as LW from the little I saw in the friendlies.

Actually one game was enough. I don't consider the Crotone one a game.

If Bona is fit, there's no question that the midfield should be Bona-Biglia-Kessie. If not, it's a toss up between Hakan and Montolivo for the mezz'ala position, but I'd rather give another chance to Hakan before we rule him out fully from there. Monto can always come on as a sub if Hakan flops again.

Having said that, won't really mind if we start with Monto-Biglia-Kessie. Montolivo will last 60 minutes without tiring and will be effective in that position.

And yet you consider friendlies as games? That's not consistent.

hakan seems like he has a good shot on him and a better final pass than bonaventura, so it would be better if he's the other LW option besides #FB11.

Just don`t use Monto and Borini.

I`m ok with any formation and/or any other mix of players.

I never said I consider friendlies as (real) games.

Hakan showed good signs as LW in a few friendlies. He has far from convinced me in that role. He would need to prove himself in real games for that. Which is why I would like to see it tested.

Hopefully we'll be able to field a stronger team v Lazio now that Biglia & Jack have both recovered

I wouldn't mind trying a 442/11 with Jack-Biglia-Kessie-Suso in the midfield and two of Andre Silva, Cutrone & Kalinic up front
If Jack is not fit then Hakan should play on the left, honestly that might be the best position for him

Think we could pull it off especially with RR & Conti pushing forward and the solid midfield pairing, Suso/Hakan/Jack all comfortable out wide in 442 too

Yea I think we will have more attacking thrust with 442 variations.....but Montella is a stickler for 3 man midfields

Can see 4-3-3 again tbh, but if we lose then can see us changing formations

But I cant see us losing with Bona-biliga-kessie in midfield

Worried about this game. Lazio play 3421 which poses significant problems to our 433



Bonucci and Musacchio have an easy enough job to track Immobile. But the midfield is extremely tricky. Who do Kessie and Calhanoglu press? If the move too far forward and press Parolo/Leiva in the middle, that leaves Biglia alone in the middle with SMS to his left and whoever they play on the left free also. If those two go wide, that's not a problem, the fullbacks can cover, unless their wingbacks are high up, but if they stay inside then it's very tricky. Calhanoglu is going to have a tough game deciding whether to track SMS or push forward.

Up front Kalinic (I hope) will find it very hard alone against their three and even with support from Suso, we won't be able to counterattack very well. Our only hope is long diagonal balls from Biglia/Bonucci trying to find space behind Wallace/Radu on the outside, forcing the three to stretch giving onrushing players space.

We won't be able to control this game. They'll always have us outnumbered 4-3 in the middle and have our attacker closed off from all sides. My hope is that RR and Conti can have some space, maybe forcing their attacking midfielders to stay wide and under control.

If it was up to me i'd play a midfielder instead of Borini (hopefully Bonaventura) and get him to stay in the middle to close down Parolo, letting Calhanoglu worry only about SMS. Maybe we can get Borini to do that, but I have a feeling he's going to just stay wide and run up and down with Basta, something RR could and should do.

To summarize, too many players on our team have to worry about two players and it's going to get confusing. RR, Calhanoglu and Borini need to be very aware of each other and their opponents otherwise it could get very messy.

I guess if we defend very narrow we could close down all the spaces, but that means we'll have a tough time transitioning because Suso/Borini would have to stay back a lot.

Why the hell would anyone want Borini starting when we've got Andre Silva, Jack & Cutrone available too
