    Formation without Defoe?

    Didn't Kane come back from loan as well?

    It's an odd season - Bale as current top scorer, and with hardly any assists, Daffy now second with more assists... a bit topsy turvy. Maybe it's just a logical follow on from the past couple of seasons where Bale seemed to like to play more in the scoring role rather than provider - well, at least he has a fair few shots (136 last season and 85 so far this).
    Having said that, There seem to be a number of balls that go into the box from wide and that no one gets on the end of. So maybe Bale's assist record (or lack of?) is just a product of his own speed (or poor delivery?)?

    Personally, I think I'd have Dempsey up front (as he doesn't appear to like playing wide), Holtby behind and Bale/Lennon still playing wide.

    • kane or obika nowhere near good enough im afraid.

      bit of a disaster with defoe being out but at least ade is back.

      I like the team with holtby behind ade. I really like the look of holtby. he looks like a right bargin. seems like a good personaility too.

      ekotto seems to have improved attacking game over the last year or so. but his defensive laziness still lets him down.
      he was awful against Norwich the other day.
      nearly every decent Norwich attack came down his side.
      he just wasn't bothered about trying to stop crosses to holt for some reason.
      he would be such a good LB if he actually cared & made more of an effort. shame.
      still better than most LBs in the prem.
