    Anyone know if the game in Austria tomorrow is going to be shown online?

    If it’s anything like last years pre season hopefully they’ll be showing it on YouTube!

    Looking at the last training video they are likely to be getting a game at Croke Park - Long will love that with his background! Cedric too with his shooting!

    Interesting Adams has been given Austin's number!

    West Ham beat them 3-2 on Thursday. Strong line up today for a first pre-season friendly.

    Wasnít trying to make out I was in the know. The rumour was that there has been a bust up between RH and his nos 2. I really donít know if itís true, I was hoping not but it seems strange and I was hoping someone on here knew something. I am very sorry if my post irritated you.

    Che Adams immediately scores. So good at shielding the ball.

    Chť Adams, 1-0 on 2 minutes.

    Held off his defender well to turn and finish.

    1-0 Saints, Adams daisy cutter into the corner, just like on his You Tube video.

    Friendly has got a bit of bite to it so far which is unusual, got a competitive edge. Great streaming coverage as well.

    Good goal from Altach, deserved IMO, only a friendly so not overly bothered, but even here Ely looks out of his depth.

    Adams looks good but we've still got major problems in the centre of our defence.

    Agreed. Not much marking going on. I don't think we expected them to be so up for this. Midfield very lightweight

    Sims and Ely especially. Hoj and Romeu not even looking to playing through them. Going very early and direct to Adams and to a lesser extent Long.

    That is how Hasenhuttl's 4222 system worked at RB Leipzig. You go direct to the quick strikers, if they get it great, if they don't then the opponent is on the back foot trying to deal with it and stretched out of position and you counter press high up the pitch. Hard to do with Elyounoussi... as he is ****!

    Yeah both wingers letting us down in this system. Doing nothing with the ball, very ineffective without it as well.

    I know but you’d expect Sims and Elyounoussi to be more involved and there’d be a bit more variety in play. It also makes it hard to get the fullbacks involved as they can’t possibly get up the pitch in such quick time. Anyway it’s preseason and all taken with a pinch of salt.

    A front four of Redmond, Djenepro, Ings & Adams would be interesting to see using the style.

    Valery Bednarek Vestergaard Bertrand

    Ward-Prowse Hojbjerg

    Redmond Djenepro

    If itís based on your fm ratings, you would want Stephens, Moi and Reed.

    Adams has looked useful: good finish, hit the post, robbed a defender and had a shot cleared off the line. Sims has been well offside about 3 times. Elyonoussi sort of involved.. central defence vulnerable to the ball over the top. Ho hum.

    Very lightweight in centre mid for the second half!

    Ridiculous team. Far too lightweight in in the middle. That team would get torn to pieces by a quick, strong midfield and attack. I would say as important as a decent centre back is a proper defensive midfielder in the wanyama mould to sit in front of them.

    Agree JWP isn’t a holding midfielder. We might get away with an attacking four if we bring in a more mobile upgrade on Romeu. But if we’re starting Romeu and Hoj, JWP will move further up and provide a bit more balance while one of Redmond, Djenepo, Ings or Adams will give way.

    Hmm, the defence looked less vulnerable in the second half, but that was probably Altach tiring? Our forwards seemed less likely to score too although Redmond was lively. Dan N'D looks a unit but him and Obafemi look a bit raw. None of the kids looked out of place, no Lee Todds there (one for the older fans..). JWP had a bit of bite even in a friendly.

    Christ with the team we'd have to score 8 a game just to draw.

    If we were able to get away without playing a DM next to Hojbjerg then we wouldn't be getting rid of Lemina. It's Romeu or preferably a new signing. Personally I wouldn't mind JWP/Djenepo behind Redmond/Adams during Ings' inevitable injury periods.
