    Right so the rules. Except for GK, create an XI with everyone out of positions they have played in the last year.

    Other clubs welcome or a Prem or World XI if you fancy variety.

    Whoscored.com is a good sense check for positions played

    Mine:

    ........Dalot......Pogba......Sanchez...
    ....................Rashford...................
    .............Shaw........Tuanzebe..........
    ..James...AWB...McTominay....Fred..
    ......................DDG............................

    What do you think? How could this do?

    When did Fred play as a right-back for us?

    EDIT: Nevermind, I see what you mean.

    I see why everyone put DDG at Gk as his out of position. He was invisible in games.

    McTominay played CB against Newcastle and West Ham last year. Surely Sanchez played right wing at some point too?

    If the player is decent playing at the "out of position" positions either as emergency or tactic, then is it "out of position" or more reasonable positions/decisions.

    :drool:Okay, I'll just play along.
    Fred -- Pogba -- Bailly
    Lindelof
    Mata -- Smalling
    AWB -- Martial -- Rashford -- Lingard
    DDG
    Actually I think Fred, Pogba, Bailly, Lindelof, Mata and AWB can work in this "out of positions".

    Damn you are right! I'll go for Garner then.

    As for Sanchez, not according to whoscored.com. It is truly incredible that he hasn't, so much so that Goldbridge was speculating that he has a clause in his contract that he can't play rightwing. It would make a lot of sense as clearly it's the position we most need him to play. He hasn't shown form to displace Rashford or Martial, but beating Lingard or Mata to RW should be feasible.

    I could see that formation working.

    ATK
    Dalot on any sides of the wing is darn good at attacking.
    Pogba's play in the centre is really good, I think he's fine playing striker.
    Sanchez can play RW well, if he bothers to do that.

    MID
    Rashford playing CAM isn't bad, but he'll play more like the runner/supporting CAM than playmaker CAM.
    Shaw as DMF is fine if he only sit/hold the mid.
    Tuanzebe is very good playing DMF, did it before.

    DEF
    James have good workrate, will play like LWB at LB, fine.
    AWB and McT are good worker and solid at defending one-on-one, they'll be fine, for sure will be exposed when teammates not helping, but with Shaw and Tuanzebe, they'll be fine as a unit. AWB can also cover James. We haven't seen AWB playing on the lefter side, but I'll bet he'll be like usual, a solid defender.

    Problems?
    Fred at right side is just..
    Sanchez playing bad.

    This looks awful! Martial and Rashford couldn't defend a lollypop from a baby!

    Smalling has no ability on the ball so would be useless in midfield.

    Lindelof is uncertain, his long game is very good, so I'd see him being a better DM. Just not sure if he has the energy.

    Fred LW could work, high energy, likes a shot. Being closer to goal might open up chances.

    I can't see what Bailly has got to be a rightwinger!

    Smalling in the Pirlo role :drool:

    I actually think Lingard at right back, Fred at left wing & Pogba at centre forward, wouldn't be that bad.

    GK Ederson
    CB Rodri
    CB Mendy
    RB De Bruyne
    LB Sané
    DM Laporte
    CM Jesus
    CM Agüero
    RW Gündoğan
    LW Fernandinho
    CF Silva

    Would probably still beat half the league.
