    Formation without Defoe?

    Meant to add, Defoe's not scored in the last 8 games, most of our goals in that time have come from Bale and Dempsey, so personnel isn't necessarily the issue, it's how we maximise the players we can use.

    • it wold be a shame to see ble move out wide as he is blistering in that central role he is taking up.

      dempsey has to play upfront hes a recognised striker and scores. ok not a world beater but a striker none the less. for me i would go with dempsey upfront and bale and holtby alternating from wide to central as the game goes on.bale to start out wide left and drift , wouldnt change the rest of the team till sandro and kaboul are fit.

        I pretty much agree with Beni, but for the record:


        Walker Daws Vertonghen BAE

        Parker Dembele

        Lennon Holtby Bale


        Kaboul for Daws or Vertonghen when fit, IMO Kaboul is our best CB, Vert has been a little off form recently! we need the Unit back!

        I agree re: Bale and Holtby, have them as fluid as possible, or have Holtby and Dembele as fluid as possible. I'd rotate Gylfi in when possible as I still think he has a future with us and is yet to get a proper run of games, mainly as the players he's competing with have been in good form.

        Bale has been good through the middle, but I think he should start wide, he makes so much more room for Dembele, Holtby to play in when he stays wide, making runs infield sporadically rather than regularly.

        When is Ade due back?
