Predict the Starting Eleven
I honestly thought that after a few weeks of this it would serve no purpose, but instead, Hughes’ team selections are the gift that keeps giving.
Not only is formation up in the air, but guessing which of the multi-million-pound signings he made in the summer will actually play is not easy.
So with Bournemouth in our sights will Sparky see them as Top 6 Dangermen, or will he see them there for the taking - will we line up with 5 at the back or 4 or 3? Only @Goatboy and @Dubai_Phil and @Simon-says have guessed correctly so far.
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).
And in by popular demand (for one more week only - prolly) it’s the…
