Hard to say.

I'd say most of the time I'd go:

Friedel
Cuellar - Collins - Dunne - Young
Albrighton - NRC - Petrov - Downing
Ashley
Gabby

Warnock for Dunne or Heskey for Gabby/Downing is equally as 'strong' (ha) IMO. Just depends on the opposition.

Dunne aside, those 11 are probably the 11 that give most for the club, though.

I rate Warnock as a bigger calamity than Dunne because with Petrov and Nige infront of him the fat fucker will recieve better protection. Whereas Downing is shite defensively (Ash bailed him out alot last year).

And although Dunne is a complete calamity, he is a very decent last-ditch defender.

Is Luke Young fit?

Yes. Houllier said early that the 'treatment room is empty'.

Luke Young still out according to OS, and if you give all the players 2 days off and Carew pisses off to Norway and gets snowbound for a couple of days then comes back to declare he is not fit?????? after a couple of days off??? WTF the treatment room might be empty but the sychy ward might have a few in there!!!

Time for senior players except Clark in at left back. Dunne has to come back and we can't afford a non tackler like Bannon in the side.

I'd go with:

Friedel
Lichaj - Clark - Cuellar - my cat
NRC - Delph (Bannan)
Albrighton - AY  - Downing
Gabby

(if we sell AY 7 and sign a decent striker we could play 4-4-2)

Ok, shall we now play the game where we guess what team the manager will pick. I'm not sure he knows himself.
Title: Re: Now EVERYONE is available. What is our strongest side?
Post by: eastie on December 31, 2010, 09:21:05 PM
                   Friedal

cuellar.     Clark.   Collins.   L young


Downing.   Delph.   Petrov.   A young

                 Gabby.  Heskey

cuellar is a better right back than warnock is a left back and I'd switch luke to left back to replace the abysmal warnock.

Tough choice between gabby and ash playing off heskey and albrighton and ash but I think ash is better on the wing than as a striker.

Interesting to see a lot of us would leave warnock out- I hope GED has taken note of his displays and in the Market for a left back.

Cuellar at right back is a nonsense. It wasnt right last season when he gave away the ball consistently and it isnt right now either. I thought Beye had solid games v Sunderland and Chelsea so hard to know what he has done wrong. He is decent in the air too which neither Luke Young nor Warnock are. With the state of things at present I'd be tempted to take the younger players out of the firing line and bring them in and out. Selling Carew to West Brom in January is utter madness. Id actually give him another chance. He has been our top scorer the last three seasons At the moment with Luke Young fit Id go for the following. A big strong EPL side that wont be ran through with a last chance saloon warning to Carew in particular but also Dunne, Beye - actually the most of them. Do they want to spend the rest of their careers playing in front of 15k for the like of Wigan or Bham or 38k chasing a Euro place at Villa Park.

Friedel
Beye, Cuellar, Dunne, L Young
A Young, Reo Coker, Delph, Downing
Carew, Heskey

The only change I would make to this side would be Lichaj. I would put L.Young back on the right and Warnock on the left.
Lichaj has a lot of potential, but he reminds me a little of Ridgewell when he played for us...He's a penalty waiting to happen.
Now if he'd been around has long as Neville then he could get away with a lot of it, but a raw unknown kid? the ref's wont think twice about it..
