Its the big one, this things HUGE, it's like a big dinner plate :ph34r: ..we have only been back in training a few weeks and only had 2 pre season games so we are not going to be fully upto speed yet but still managed to totally dominate Bayern Munich so it should be a good game ..Gundogan, Stones, Foden & Laporte stayed in Manchester so haven't played any games yet. Haaland scored twice against Munich, could of easy had 3 or 4, he's going to be a hand full for every team we play this year, looking forward to this

Ederson

Walker - Dias - Ake - Cancelo

De Bruyne - Rodrigo - Bernardo

Mahrez - Haaland - Greelish

bench:- Ortega, Estbrand, Riley, Stones, Laporte, Phillips, Gundogan, Foden, Palmer, Alavrez, McAtee, Delap, Edozie

I think City will win this just because Adrian's going to be in goal. A bit shit to not have our first and second choice keepers really available at all for pre-season.

I imagine there will be heavy rotation by both teams, it's only a friendly really isnt it

Looking forward to this, if only to see City's line up so I can get some ideas for my fantasy team.  If Walker and Grealish start here it should, could , or might mean they start the first couple of weeks.

Your squad has had more match practice though and looks to have had a longer pre-season. Think that'll pay off.

Yeah that's true. Also you never know which Adrian is going to turn up xD - some days he's brilliant some days he looks like it's first day ever playing as a goalkeeper.

Stick Haaland in, he's going to average a goal a game ;)

Adrian vs Haaland should be exciting :35_thinking: wonder how your defence will cope with him is what im looking forward too, your probably thinking the same about Nunez against Ake or a youth player 😂

Tbh I'm not really sure Nunez will start this one - Klopp's shown he's willing to hold off on regularly using his expensive signings until he thinks they're ready. Having said that, this is also his most expensive signing I believe (well once the add-ons come into play)... so who knows. 

I'm generally excited to see how he does in our attack, not really against any particular opposition - he's just a different kind of attacker to what we've really seen under Klopp's time with us and I think it'll be a pretty substantial change to the way we approach matches. I guess that's a bit similar to you as well, because while you recently had Aguero who was a traditional forward... I think he's a bit different in terms of what Haaland offers.

Honestly from the little I've seen of our pre-season, I think the signing that excites me most is Carvalho. I've only really seen highlights but he looks like a pretty special young player. I wonder if he'll get any time in the Charity Shield.

I thought you sold Ake to Chelsea??

Think Haaland will only get a cameo too, he didn't play the first friendly and only and 40mins of the 2nd which he had an hour break in between because of a deadly storm over the stadium 😯😂 the viking brought the lightning after he scored they had to leave the pitch 😂 ..we decided to keep Ake because Laporte and Stones are injured and Chelsea trying to low ball us, he was great against Munich, think he could replace Laporte on that showing

I have Haaland I am hoping that at least Grealish starts regularly.

Greelish will rotate with Foden onless Foden moves to the right :35_thinking: ..its risky picking City players with the amount of rotation we do

Doesn't matter if you win or lose this one, I think the only thing either team won't want is to be on the end of a hiding.

Coming out of it with no injury's is all that matters really, the result doesn't really matter count with the amount of changes both teams will make. i think we will play our first team for 60mins with only having 2 games so far, you play tomorrow so you might play your strongest team for 90mins and reserves tomorrow? 🤔

Would have liked to have seen Nunez from the start, but she should get half an hour in the second half. Strong sides from both teams, be interesting how Virj & Joel deal with that big bastard upfront.

Martin Tyler just said 'In Norway they pronounce it [Hall-land] but in England we tend to say [Haa-land]. But we aren't in Norway so we are going to say [Haa-land]'.

Are you fucking kidding me?

Cancelo as number 7. What the fuck is going on there?! 

Don't pretend this is still like rugby where the numbers actually are relevant to the position.

It's still odd for a defender.

Nah, Gallas wore 10 at Arsenal, remember? Well it is still odd I suppose but hardly unique. Besides, as I said before positions are hardly static like they were in the past. Canceli may as well be a box-to-box midfielder with his approach to the game.

Would of liked Foden to take it 

You wouldn’t want to confuse him by changing his number.
