Personally i like the 4231, but we should also be able to play t33.

In terms of a "different formation", i also like the look of the 3421/3412, i also think we should have that one under our hat maybe......

OK so with Grealish going and Ings, Buendia and Bailey coming in how do we form our team.

Certain there will be more changes but atm I've no idea how we line up.

4-2-2-2, maybe? Two holding midfielders (e.g. Doug and McGinn), two wide men (Buendia and Bailey), and two up top (Watkins and Ings). It's possible.

I think the main thing is that Dean Smith has to start embracing squad rotation more this season. The likes of Cash, Targett and McGinn don't need to play every minute of the season, same goes for Ollie Watkins regardless of how fit he is. We have the squad now where there won't be a massive drop off in quality when changes are made.

Yeah I'm sure we've just chucked £25/30m on Ings to have him on the bench....

Maybe, doesn't really suit the central midfielders currently at the club but as good as a guess as any. Really did not think we would sign such a high profile, high fee striker.

Considering the money we've spent on them I can't see any of the new guys Buendia, Ings and Bailey being signed as bench players and I certainly don't see us moving Watkins there so I'm stumped. Having all of them on the pitch with any CM combination of Luiz, McGinn, Sanson, Ramsey looks really weak defensively even thou Buendia, Watkins and Ings are all good defensively.

Nakamba can do a job but he's not someone I want starting games for us. Signing JWP would not solve this either.

I know Mings..I mean Ings is probably considered for the 10 role but I'm not a fan of that system.

Much prefer how Liverpool plays with 2 hard working box to box midfielders and a DM

Quite like this 

gives us

McGinn , Ramsey , El Ghazi , and Traore to interchange in positions

and that’s before we spend the rest of the Jack money :)

That midfield would get overrun

A bit off-topic, but I am not convinced Targett will be preferred to Young at left back.

im not sure we can ascertain that until we see who we bring in before the first game?

However, based on current players, this is prob what i would go for:

                  Martinez

Cash - Konsa - Mings - Targett

            Luiz - McGinn/Sanson

  Bailey - Buendia - Watkins

                 Ings

 

Buendia, Watkins and Ings work their asses off......will be a big change to last season in that sense.

No idea if bailey is a hard worker 😜

Think Smith will line up like this.

.................Martinez.............

Cash..Konsa..Mings....Targett

............McGinn....Luiz.............

Buendia........Ings...........Bailey

......................Watkins.................

Seriously stacked with quality in here. Be interesting to see how Ings turns out in a 10/false 9 position
