  1. Still sticking with the 433 system, Livramento in a plus, see what happens.
    Let’s hope Almiron turns up like he did at Villa.
    Would have preferred 442 with Willock instead of Almiron but we don’t know how match ready he is.


  2. Getting overwhelmed in the middle of the park!
    442 or 532 is needed you could smell it coming, unless you can match them you have to nullify them.
