    A back 3?

    Do you think we'll change to a back 3 next season to accommodate Botman? Or will Howe stick with Schar and Burn and leave Batman on the bench to wait for his opportunity to get into the team?

    That's exactly what me, my dad and one of my brother's were saying might happen (easing him in but starting with Burn, that is). Depends on how good he is in training, I suppose?

    5 subs a game = major changes to the way we play the game.

    Howe is going to drill multiple formations into the team during Pre-Season.

    We'll see the team flex between 5-4-1, 4-3-3, 4-4-2 during matches through-out the season.

    The players we are bringing into the club will enable the manager to be flexible and set up in multiple formations during the season depending on the opponent we are facing to give us the best chance to win each game.

    I love that we are now going to play every match in the new season to WIN, Liverpool and City aside maybe, but still we will be having a go at everyone, home and away!

    BRILLIANT!!!!!

    All of your suggestions above Ragatino will be a refreshing change from the days of CabageHeed's boot-it-and-run tactics.

    I don't know how to fit in Bottman, Our defence was pretty solid, from January on.I just hope we can continue on from the form from the second half of last season.

    He seems to be another ď leftieĒ watching videos of him he seems to play on the left side. How will that work with Burn? Maybe Burn will be benched? Batmanís the future and Iím sure he will have asked for assurances about playing regularly. Itís Howes decision and Iím sure he will handle it professionally,and fairly,like he has done up to now.
