    • In my mind there's 2 options I would try for the long term, although ones probably not possible for Slovenia 1 - You drop to one DM. You can play Bellingham either alongside Rice but with more of a licence to push on, or further forward alongside Foden in the #10 with Saka and Gordon playing as wingers in a 4-1-4-1. 2. You sacrifice Saka and play with a narrower 3 behind the striker of Palmer/Bellingham/Foden. I'd still rather have Mainoo or Wharton in the middle with Rice than I would have TAA or Gallacher. The only issue with option 2 is you'd be more reliant on the fullbacks providing width and we don't really have anyone for the left if Shaw's injured because Trippier likes to come inside   
    • I'd be tempted by that team although would possibly use Bowen on the right. I think pace on the wings will cause problems then give Palmer 30mins in the number 10 role. 
    • How I'd start vs Slovenia.. don't need 2 Defensive Midfielders.. pace and creativity out wide and ket Jude and Foden roam freely in the middle. .                      Pickford Walker   Stones     Guehi    Trippier                           Rice                     Bellingham  Palmer            Foden         Gordon                           Kane
    • Now I know Barlaser isn't everyone's cup of tea but with the greatest of respect, I don't believe picking up someone from the local Şok Market's checkout staff is going to be a replacement for the Geordie Pirlo.
    • I am hoping VDB takes no.4 so that his no.3 can go to either Giles if he returns or one of Bangura or Engel.  I know its common for dutch CBs to wear no.3 and some very good ones have done so including Stam and De Boer but it triggers me. The no.3 should be for left back only. Morris can take another number as long as its not no.10 as that will trigger me more than VDB and his no.3.
