Totally. It's as if the last years didn't happen... Always go for shiny Glamour, technique, Flair and sophistication. Put on all the attackers and then try to even it out by splashing 100 millions on a player like Rice who is then supposed to do defense with 2 CBs and one FB (because we want them modern and attacking of course). I mean, I kind of like the enthusiasm about the fans, hoping for the best, hoping new players will show to be suitable for different roles than they are used to (Bruno or Eriksen as CM), wanting younglings like Iqbal or Garner to succeed but, to be perfectly honest: I think, we are not doing any of the young players any favours because all the time, the pressure is at its peak and it is success or failure only for the next batch of talent to appear that will have to bear the expectations from then on.Not only that, we will also do it with not one, but two no10s on the pitch at the same time.
But, to get back to the topic of the thread, strongest eleven for me currently:
Lindelof (with one of the two making room for Martinez in the next 2-3 weeks)
Shaw (trying to shift towards Malacia)
