Watching his highlights Meyer seems to have a lovely weighted through ball pass which if used slipping Zaha in behind could cause carnage.
Id like to see Meyer Zaha and Adros all in attack.

Leave the holding job to Luka he is the man for that role. Kouyate either in there with him or in and around the middle.

Interesting one this. I thought we suffered last season when Cabaye wasn't in the team - both in terms of ball-retention and creativity. I can't wait to see if Kouyate is actually his replacement; receiving the ball from defence and starting the attacks. I love Jimmy Mac but that isn't the strongest part aspect to his game; in my view.

We were great at the end of last season. Great pre season and great on Saturday.

I say let the new boys earn their right to play for us first before we start discussing who to drop.

For Me, this seems reasonable base team. switching Kouyate for Macca(started not to last the 90 anyway?) when RH deems necessary!

only question is if Meyer wants to start from a deeper role? not sure....

This is how I see it going, but if benteke doesn't start scoring soon, could loose his starting place to Ayew.

This is also how I see it. Kouyate, Jimmy Mc and Luka together gives us a very strong base with which to attack. Meyer can provide the creativity that perhaps RLC would have given us. Schlupp can play on the left if we are struggling, as can Ayew for Tekkas or Andros. Fact is, the players we have bought are as good as the ones we have lost and in a way actually add more to the squad because they have more variety to their game. Overall I think this is a better squad than last year and that is all I would ever ask from the club - just get slightly better each year.

Could we actually be entering a new era, "Squad Rotation."
Ah, perhaps we can dream.

They are not paying Meyer a fortune to have him sit on the bench

Unless he is terrible in training, I'd start bedding him in after the Liverpool game. We have a relatively easy schedule up to October 21 - away to Everton. Optimistically, by then, even that will be regarded as winnable

The general consensus seems to be that Kouyate had gone off the boil at West Ham. Nevertheless, he was second in assists for the team last year

Medium term, I see Schlupp as an impact sub and McArthur as the first replacement for Meyer/Kouyate/Luka if any of them are missing

Agreed, I can see Macca pushing for a starting berth slightly ahead of Schlupp if any of those three go missing, but we'll have to see how Roy sees it.

On last season's form, Ayew is a better player then Bentecke.

I'm not sure why we would be starting Bentecke to be honest. He needs to start scoring in the next few games otherwise Ayew to start.

Agreed George, however Roy will be working on getting Ayew used to our system of play at the moment which may take a few weeks training. Benteke does look up for it this season but he knows he must deliver if he is not to be replaced.

What I’m seeing is the possibility of any three playing together in the middle -
- Luka / Kouyaté / Macca
- Luka / Meyer / Macca
- Luka / Meyer / Kouyaté
- Depending on what we need or who we’re playing, with Wilf / Andros out wide and Benteke in the middle.

Add Schlupp and a solid forth option for the middle / replacement LB / winger / etc and he becomes our utility man.
I think it helps to rotate midfield with one pushing on as we will have injuries or absences.

In a way it is strange that people want Mcarthur replaced by Meyer, a player I doubt many of us have actually seen play live.
Mcarthur has been a very good player for Palace over a number of years and is the epitome of ‘Roy type player.’
Consistent, unfussy, energetic and can be used anywhere across the midfield positions without complaint.
Meyer may be talented and will hopefully offer something the other midfielders at the club don’t have, but let’s see what he can do first.
It’s certajnly good to have competition for places and , unlike last season, I don’t think Townsend will be used up front if Benteke isn’t firing. Ayew is tailor made to play alongside Zaha in a mobile 4-4-2 should circumstances dictate.
