Hey Folks,

Just a piece of pointless Fun on a slow Sat afternoon but how do people think. We'll line up for Our first fixture of the upcoming Season.

I reckon it'll be.

GK: Arrizabalage
LB: Emerson
CB: Luiz
CB: Rüdiger
RB: Azpilicueta
CM: Jorginho
CM: Barkley
CM: Kante
WF: Willian
WF: Pulisic
ST: Giroud

I think assuming there will be no incoming signings and the injuries We have, this will likely be Our Starting 11.

Anybody else.

Blue Nose, my guess is it depends on the manager and if we take on yet another change of shape but as things stand your team selection seems reasonable.

Hey Tom,

I should have stated that the team I stated was based on playing a 4-3-3 formation similar to what Sarri has done for much of this season.

The Head Coach and their ideas will determine who gets the nod ofcourse.

What a worrying line up,

08 Jun 2019 20:56:44
Do another lineup in a 4231.Do you think Jorginho will still be in it. Maybe in at the back next to Kante would be good.

I agree Matt, it isn't the most inspiring starting 11 but it is more or less what I'm expecting with the Transfer Ban and Injuries etc.

Hopefully We can be competitive and keep Our expectations somewhat in check.

Ironically this should be a Season of real positivity having being the best of the rest in the Prem, making two Finals, winning one and getting back into the Champions League under a progressive Head Coach with His first season at the Club under His belt. Instead We're facing a transfer ban and losing Our Gaffer and Star Man.

One things for sure, there's rarely a dull moment supporting the Chels lol.

Hey Chelsea4life,

I thought Jorginho could have played in a double pivot with Kante deeper alongside Him and in My mind atleast it made a lot of sense lol. One more the ball winner, the other more the deep lying playmaker.

I don't think We have a suitable number 10 in the squad though tbh, so maybe not the rite time.

A side should be flexible to a point though and having more options can only be a good thing.

Maybe it's something We'll get to see in time.

I think RLC is a natural number 10 but he is unlikely to be fit for the first game of the season.

09 Jun 2019 01:13:24
you are thinking 4-3-3, who knows if the incoming manager will go with a 4-3-3 formation.

09 Jun 2019 11:20:49
I also think RLC will fit nice into the no 10 role. He has been aweso. e for us in the second half of the season. He must keep it up and be even better when he gets back. Im excited for CHO aswell.

09 Jun 2019 12:27:56
Not withstanding that Willian is in fact a #10, not a winger.

I would envisage that the forward line would consist of

RW Pulisic
CAM Willian
LW Pedro until CHO is fit
ST - Giroud/ Michy.

Anyone think these lineups with a ban would compete with arsenal spurs United Liverpool Man City and competition from a Leicester with Rogers and possibly a Settled Everton, we weren’t much better than arsenal and united and that was with hazard,
