How would you play our current midfield? 4-2-1-3 or 4-1-2-3?

I suppose it depends who you have available and what team you are playing.
Nice swerve grandad,'cos you really don't know what those numbers mean,do you? :lol:

Re: Haller.

Glad we got him.

I like a German signing. Similar to us in attitude and temperament.

Must just remember not to mention The War in the dressing room.
