I think it will look more like a 4-3-3, but same difference. I think it just depends on whether we get Hulk or not.


This, if we get Hulk or Modric RDM will have to reconsider the tactics/formation he will be using. If things stay as they are I would expect a 4-3-3.

Oh all right I understand now.

On a side know does anyone know Hulk's real name without looking it up? I just think it's funny this guy goes by a superheroes name although his abilities on the field are quite impressive.

If we sign Modric would he take Mikel's spot?


I don't think so. I think it'd be hard to get Modric, Mata, and Hazard all on the field at the same time. We need Mikel or someone like him sitting in front of the defense.

He has like 5 names but his last name is De Souza (sp), but I'm probably butchering it.

ETA:FIFA is how I knew his last name.

His name is really long, I do know the name Hulk came from his dad.

I don't know if anyone read this article, but I thought it was good.

I'm a little late to the party but here's my input from the last two pages:

1. Frank was our leading scorer again this year despite the mid-season injury. There's no denying he's losing a step or two but there's also no denying he's a central part of the team on and off the pitch. Definitely want him back for a year or two before he comes to Amurrica!

2. I'm not totally OK with entering the season with just Torres/Sturridge/Lukaku, but more OK than some. Frank is one of the best scoring midfielders in the game, and Mata/Hazard/Marin are all attack minded. Add to the fact that Cole and Maicon are two of the most offensive defenders in the game/Luiz and Terry play striker every two games or so, I don't think goals will be hard to come by. That being said, if something were to happen (injury, Torres being Torres, etc) there isn't much option to fill the void.

3. Great article.

4. What's everyone else's thoughts on Mikel? He seemed to surge into a larger role when RDM took over. Some games he was very solid and some games he was extremely forgettable. Just wondering what everyone else thinks.

Never been a big fan and thought he was pretty pointless most of the time but he really played quite brilliantly in the CL run. Hopefully it was finally a turning point for him but if we are going to try and play a more attacking brand of football I'm not sure how he fits in.

Neither. Mata, Ramires, Cahill or Luiz.

He disappears way too much IMO, and tends to be the main reason a lot of teams beat our d. Not a huge fan here.

Supposedly he should be wrapped up in the next couple of days.

Guys I want to discuss a VERY overlooked thing with AVB going to Spurs. Is he taking our doctor with him?

I'm pretty sure she was in the dugout for the cl final and other post AVB games.

She was, but after the season, would he make a play to get her? I'll kill him if he does.

I hope they get some more badass names in a hurry. Just so I can see them in a few weeks.
