    About Meireles

    Ok, so let's play manager for a second.
    Who starts in the midfield and what formation is best? Cole and Meireles have to be in the squad, so Lucas and either maxi or Jova has to be dropped, with no great sadness. I guess in theory it doesn't matter if we have true wingers right now, as long as the best 11 players are on the field and they click?

    Based on what our sources have said, Meireles cannot replace Mascherano as we might have thought. So are we OK with Raul/Gerrard in the center? If so, a 4-4-1-1 seems perfect.

    Or is 4-3-2-1 best?

    • I'd rather see a somthing along the lines of this:


      Gerrard and Meireles alternating throughout the game both have the intelligence to play such a role in terms of playing the link man and supporting the striker, both players have the game and endeavour to join up with the attack.

      Cole for me is the best in the option on the left he offers invention, the ability to beat a man and when to come in field. Whether he was promised the central role or not is irrelevant, it's what is best for the team.

      Pulsen I've chosen is he is nothing more than a player that sits in front of the back 4, will offer good protection and keep things simple. Sunday he was used as the link player which made him look absolute kack.

      That for me is our strongest eleven at this given moment in time.
