Stade Rennais v Aston Villa pre-season friendly thread
« on: July 26, 2022, 09:49:54 AM »
Rennes v Aston Villa


Saturday 30 July 5pm


Be very interesting to see the starting line up. I'd like to see something like this:


                   Martinez


Cash           Chambers         Carlos         Digne


               Kamara           Sanson


Bailey             Buendia          Coutinho


                     Watkins


I'd be happy if Archer started, but seeing as Watkins is still our first choice striker we need to get him into some sort of form.


No Watkins and Ings up front, I said no Watkins and Ings up front!

Interesting, that might be a good line-up. Sanson, Bailey, and Buendia all seem to play at a higher tempo and Buendia likes to play balls through the middle which would be good for Watkins.

I just don't think he sees having both Coutinho and Buendia starting together in the same side.
 
I would much prefer if he went with the team Risso selected. However, I expect he will go with:

                       Martinez

          Cash  Carlos    Mings   Digne

            McGinn Kamara Ramsey

                Bailey   Coutinho

                     Watkins

                     Watkins

I'd be happy if Archer started, but seeing as Watkins is still our first choice striker we need to get him into some sort of form.

I love us to try this, but just don't see him leaving Ramsey or McGinn out.  He wouldn't even drop them for Sanson last season when it was clear they were struggling.  Luiz would also be a good fit for that spot.

Arguably it looks too attacking, but I think people underestimate just how combatitive Buendia can be and he could drop back to make a 3 in midfield when required.

I would think that the team that starts this game will be the team that starts against Bournemouth, (unless we make a top quality signing next week)

Mings will start the game, Watkins will also start the game.

I got dragged to see the live version of 'Allo 'Allo once. Worst night of my life, trying to force a smile for two hours when I was dying inside.
