Thread: Your starting 11

  1. #1

    Your starting 11

    Providing they're all fit and raring to go, who would you say is our best 11? Think we one of the best starting 11s in the league, but where we suffer is genuine quality in replacements in certain positions.

    GK- Green
    LB- Taylor (Berardi has done well, but we've missed Taylors natural attacking threat down that left flank)
    CB- Jansson
    CB- Bartley
    RB- Ayling
    CDM- Vieira
    CDM- O'Kane
    LM- Sacko
    CAM- Hernandez
    RM- Roofe
    ST- Wood

    I don't rate Bridcutt anymore, he does nothing for me, has a nice pass but cant tackle, is frequently second best in the challenge and doesn't take a grip of the game when the going gets tough. Phillips is good option to bring one when Vieira has burnt himself out after 60 minutes as well.

    Can't say enough for Barrow or Pedraza yet as I've hardly seen them play, but you can't drop Roofe who for me improves with every game and Sacko who is doing exactly the same. Dallas is a good player when you need extra defensive solidity and a great option to have, but if we are playing two holding midfielders we shouldn't need to play more defensive wingers as well, plus Roofe and Sacko do track back, they're just not quite as good at it.

    Uprfont, too many options but I went with Wood.

    Bartley and Jansson are the key best combination for along time - I agree about Bridutt he doesn't impress me but isn't it good to have option now. Pedraza needs some game time and needs to get away from trying to do something impressive and play the team game. Not sure about Barrow sounded like he needs some game time as well.

    When I look at the squad, there's only really centre back and lone striker we lack quality depth in, every other position has 2 players of championship quality imo

    neither Bridcutt or okane for me, id of had Barton, we need some steel in there...

    wouldn't change a thing on joel's list.

    and yes, it's great to have the backups we have this year. some years they'd have been our star player at thier position.

    Bit dissappointed with Bridcut myself this season. Top man last season though. Is he another one who turns shyte when he signs his name.

    Would be happy enough with Joels team too although i think the 2 new boys will play a big part in the latter stages.

    Shame about bridcutt he's been a yard off the pace since his injury. Agree with Joel's team as I said before we better team going forward with sacko and roofe but I would have berardi in. The guy is nails and the commitment every time he plays edges Taylors ability.

    agree on Beradi also
