You mentioned O'Neill there, Derek---apparently Bentley's in advanced talks with Villa---could be the right move for him.
He'll do really well at Villa if he can get regular action; they're the exact right team for him.Considering our strength in midfield with the likes of Hudd & O'Hara, perhaps we should experiment with a 3-5-2 against some less attacking (I'm absolutely refusing to say easier!) teams? Say:A-E - King/Woody - CorlukaPalacios - King/HuddO'Hara/Modric - Modric/Jenas - LennonStriker a - Striker b(I've put King & Modric in twice, I expect them to be a first choice in one of the two positions I've put them in, and the other player to play in the other spot)Means we can fit around the players we've got, and with the additional anchoring of Palacios & a good DM we should be ok to cover the defence.
