B2S is right,
both of you (Sfer and JL) have too much to offer and contribute to waste your time slinging mud.
With Daffy out for a few more weeks, what are your opinions on who plays in his place? does Ade lead the line or do we give Dempsey a chance?
Where does Bale fit in? as a CF? playing 'in the hole' or would you prefer to keep him wide.
After much deliberation and with Daffy injured and Ade yet to find his best form, I'd give Bale a free reign, maroording where ever he wants. This wouldn't work in all scenarios and when Daffy plays I think it leaves us a little exposed, however Ade, Dempsey, Lennon and Holtby all offer much more to the team defensively than Daffy IMO.
With a fit Daffy, I prefer to keep Bale wide, in order to make the most of available space bring our other midfielders into attacking positions.

I'm not sure If Holtby is cup-tied for tonight, so I guess we'll start with Ade up front and Dempsy in behind. I would start with Bale on the left for the first half and see how we're doing, then if needed, move him more inside, and put Siggy or Dempsey on left. Lyon are a very good side, so could be hard to get through the tie, but I still hope we give it a good go, and field as strong a side as possible.
Even though Holtby has only played a couple of games, I would play Ade upfront, Holtby behind and Bale left (as he comes inside anyway). Hopefully get some balls into the box from both sides - and let Holtby do the VdV bit around the edge of the box.
