    Will he play wide or through the middle ?
  3. The whole team will need to be replaced again next summer in the championship.
  4. He will play “bench”.

    I think Pedro will be used centrally as he’s not fast enough to play on the wing in our current set-up.
    I think mostly he’ll have to accept being used as a sub, coming on as a 10 when we’re chasing a game. Maybe can get a run as the striker during AFCON depending on King’s fitness and form.

    Yeah I’m still not 100% on his best position. He’s too good to spend the season sitting on the bench. Not expecting him to be a guaranteed starter, but he’s such a talent there needs to be a place for him to fight for.

    He is good enough to fit into the 4-3-3 but I do feel a 4-2-3-1 would probably suit him better.

    Will he drift in from the left or right?

    Roaming playmaker slightly deeper than the other forwards me thinks.
  9. I think he will drift out from the left

    I'd agree this is probably his best role currently, but we don't seem to use that in the current formation / system.

    It could work in a 4231 system with him at the base of a diamond formation up front, I also think that would be Cucho's best position. They could share it with one starting and the other coming off the bench for 20/30 minutes or maybe less, depending on how any given game is going.

    Oh I fully agree it could work and would suit him. But the signs are we have very much built the team for 4-3-3 with hard working midfielders and mainly pacey forwards with a bit of skill in there as well.

    The squad list has now been submitted to the Prem. As expected there's only 23 players over 21.

    So we lost the lot, which is both good and bad :cool:

    What a great gesture from the club to retire the number 9 ;)

    Or have we got to wait until January for a marquee signing?

    In January we will be that desperate, Troy will return on loan and reclaim the number 9 shirt

    He could finally play the centre back role some of our fans are desperate to see him in!

    He's only on the bench for brum tonight. We'll probably have to recall him from his loan due to lack of game time.

    He'll probably get a run out with the U23s first.
