Hope Falcao is fit to start today, can't wait to see another prolific goalscorer like Nistelrooy in our team...
Don't think today will show too much about our defense- I expect us to win 3-0 with an ok performance and a couple of late goals to make it look easier than it was.

Thats 3 or 5 at the back whichever way you look at it, unless Blackett is at lb which I doubt
Well I suppose that's the knighthood fucked.

Saying is a 4-4-2 diamond with Mata at the tip, Blind at the base. But yeah basically 4-3-3!

Why would Blackett not be at left back? It is where he normally plays or has done for the reserves. Rojo could be at left back as well, considering keeping Blackett there would provide some consistency for him.

So no width then bar the full backs. Congested centrally, can't see it

Think what we need is to be adaptable throughout games changing formations as necessary. Like a good team does.
