I'd go pretty strong, maybe just leave out Agger, Glen and Gerrard. Good chance to nearly secure qualification.

 

With 2 home games, we could do that i.e. Udinese and Stoke. As was mentioned before, the away win at Young Boys means that if we can win our home games, we can qualify. After this game, its the last time we play at home after a Europea Lge game

Udinese's start to the season has been very similar to ours, in terms of point accumulation.

 

In six league games, they have won just once, drawn three and lost two. They've scored 6 goals, conceded 9 and currently sit in 15th place in Serie A.

 

Despite the poor start, they are now on a four-game unbeaten run having produced a win and three draws in the four games since they lost their opening two. On the flip side, they have failed to score in their last two games, both ending in goalless draws.

 

Also in a very similar way to us, they have had tough early fixtures and their two defeats have come away at Fiorentina (courtesy of a last minute winner) and at home to champions Juventus. Their only win came at home to AC Milan.

 

They are in the Europa League due to losing their Champions League playoff tie against Braga on penalties, after drawing both legs 1-1. Their biggest goalscoring threat is Italian international Antonio Di Natale, who has scored two league goals this season so far, and three in all competitions from six appearances, continuing from last season when he scored 23 league goals and 29 in all competions.

 

Their opening six league results have been as follows:

 

 

Fiorentina 2-1 Udinese

 

Udinese 1-4 Juventus

 

Siena 2-2 Udinese

 

Udinese 2-1 Milan

 

Torino 0-0 Udinese

 

Udinese 0-0 Genoa

I like that team, apart from downing.

 

I'd also find a way of putting shelvey in, since he cant play in the league until late October.

Quick question re Suso and Pacheco....can either of them actually play as one of the wide forwards and be comfortable enough to make a positive impact in that kind of position?

You mean where both of them have played in the last two games?

Ah, well two games proves it then! :bleh:

 

I obviously meant on a consistent basis, rather than just once or twice.

 

And i must have missed Pacheco at Carrow Road, where did he play? ;)

If true about Downing being last in - first out when it comes to training the same should apply about him getting in the team. He should only play if we have no one else to fill the required role. And we have a bunch of exciting youngsters coming through the ranks meaning Downing shouldn't start this game.

 

So Epic Swindle's team and switching Downing for Jonjo/Cole/Ngoo/Morgan/etc and shift players around as needed in the 4-3-3.

Udinese are always in transition. It's their economic model. They have something like 50 players on their books, most of them on loan developing elsewhere. Their are the true proponents of moneyball in football. It would be interesting to see if it could work for a non-selling club.
