Predict the Starting Eleven

Thanks to @BTripz for stepping in and posting the prediction thread for the cup game - and a special thank you for missing out the “predict the formation” bit - FOR THE ONE TIME WE ACTUALLY NEEDED IT!

As usual, Hughes stayed one step ahead of the Sotonians’ brain trust who failed to predict 3 at the back or Targett playing.

0/10 Sotonians, must do better!

So will Hughes persist in his prime-number-of-defenders obsession or will he go non-prime, will Bletch run out of ways to pose the same questions or will he spout a never-ending stream of nonsense throughout the season?

Anyway, you know the rules. Pick the eleven players, in whatever formation you feel Hughes will go for, and if you get it spot-on you will win either a caravan or a motorboat (badge).

As I pointed out in our private conversation about the matter, you explicitly said (in the previous competition thread) that the predict the formation competition was a one off. Now unless the definition of one-off has changed…


#3

Nope, the definition of “one off” hasn’t changed. It’s still the same - as in…

I gave @BTripz a list of two jobs to do but he just dropped one off.

It also said that the Predict the Formation part was in by popular demand. You didn’t believe that too, did you?

One man’s popular demand is another man’s freedom figther.
