Waiting for his work permit which is imminent. Will be really interesting to see who he plays. He will play three at the back with two stoppers and one sweeper and all will need to be able to play out from the back. Think this might put a sell by date on Liam Cooper?

The two wing backs suit us down to the ground: Ayling and pearce will be expected to drive up field and even into the box when the opportunity arises!

One defensive midfielder, who will need to play box to box with massive energy: think this is pick one from 3 or 4.

Then we have a the "enganache" (hook) role that binds the whole philosophy together. He is the playmaker and the oil that lubricates the whole machine. He is the only one who dosen't necessarily have any defensive duties and Samu is a shoe in for me.

Two wingers who will be expected to get chalk on their boots, and interchange with the players around them.

The centre forward will need to close down like his life depends on it. And yet Bielsa isn't wedded to one formation. He played a four at the back with Bilbao, and some longer balls to exploit Lorente's arial ability.

Cannot wait for El Loco to arrive!
Excellent 2nd post John :tup:

Just as a matter of interest as all that sounds a lot more European/South American than English. Is there a limit on foreigners we're allowed to play or do we have to field a percentage of England(Scotland/Wales/NI) eligible players?

There is a rule in the Football League, think it's no more than 6 non British players in a match day squad but not certain.

Interesting post! Though you can't really say he'll play three at the back when he played with four at Bilbao!

This is only an issue because of the leaks and press speculation. The club are going about doing their business and I would rather they took their time and got it right rather than see another Hock or Heck situation.
