If we weren't to sign anyone else what system would you go with?.
I'd go with a back 5 in the center Tarky, Mee and Keane.
Fullbacks /wingbacks Ward and lowton.
Midfield Marney, Jones and Barnes.
Vokes and Gray up top.
What iv'e seen of tarks,we can't leave him out of the side,just trying to think of a system that could get him in.

After thinking long and hard.... We can only (and will only) go with a 4-4-2/4-4-1-1 with what we have.

I would love to see 3 in the middle and a couple out wide with pace cutting in/supporting upfront, but without the Moroccan lad I don't think this is an option.
Boyd could be more productive upfront, and was more so when given encouragement to be further up the pitch, but he seems to burn out of energy to have a pop at goal after all those doggies in our own half.

Line up:
Vokes/Gray
Arfield/Jones/Marney/Boyd
Ward/Mee/Keane/Lowton
Heaton

Subs coming on:
87mins - Juke or Hennings

80 mins the Iceman is on for Boyd or Arfield.

My mistake 😜

If we are not to sign anyone else I think it should be 10-1.

Might get the odd point.

I think in all probability we will start how we finished:
Heaton,
Lowton, Keane, Mee, Ward,
Arfield, Jones, Marney, Boyd,
Vokes and Gray.
Subs: Gudmundsson, Pope, Darikwa, Tarkowski, K.Long, Ulvestad and the Juke.

Unsurisingly the swans know how we wil line up too.
They will also know how we'll play. So it's upto our lads to carry the crest of the wave into this season and batter them!

Come on you Clarets!!!!!!!!
