  1. I'm not so sure that Defoe can play up front on his own… I have never seen it work against a team with any genuine ability,especially against Man Utd where he never gets a sniff. I would probably swap Crouch for Defoe, but that's the only change I would make..

  2. Spot on with selection. Same as hearts apart from Livermore. Defoe and Kranjcar played well in this formation so no need to change… until half time that is lol… but seriously COYS!

  3. Gomes
    gallas/kaboul/dawson/assou-ekotto
    lennon/huddlestone/liverore/bale
    vdv
    defoe

    kranjcar for livermore

    Luka…you let us down

  4. I'd like to see us play a 4-3-3. Think the 2 FB's give us width, could swap Defoe/Pav into the front 3

    Gomes

    Walker-Kaboul-Dawson-Assou Ekotto

    Livermore – Huddlestone – Kranjcar

    Lennon – Van Der Vaart – Bale

  5. Has to be northants' team – but with Gomes in goal. I doubt Defoe will do anything, but he deserves to have the chance to back up Thursday's performance. I have major doubts about Niko in centre against a closing down midfield, but we have no choice! Modders would have been perfect there!

  6. gomes
    walker kaboul dawson bae
    lennon livermore huddlestone bale
    vdv
    pav

    sorry defoe, jus not the game for you. kranj to come on for final 30

  7. I never expected this from Modric. He could be the difference.

    Gomes (he should start untill he screws up again)

    Walker kaboul dawson BAE

    Lennon Thud Niko(hope he shows Luka that he’s not bigger than the team) bale

    VdV

    Defoe(he might struggle but if he will eventualy get a chance or two,if he fails bring on pav)

  8. ———————-Gomes——————
    Walker—–Dawson—-Kaboul—–BAE
    ———————-Thudd——————–
    —————-VDV——-Niko—————-
    Lennon———————————-Bale
    ———————–Defoe——————-

    I would start with this as i feel thudd and niko on their own in the middle would be too slow so i've added another body to create less space in the middle of the park therefore speed won't be needed, then we have lennon and bale attacking at pace down the wing with defoe's sharp movement upfront. thudd sitting will also allow vdv and niko to attack the box when the ball is wide providing defoe with some support on a very young and inexperienced defence. Thudd can also cut out any balls played up to the front men and this utilizes tommy's excellent passing range as he should get time on the ball from deep and if not it will either drag someone out of the middle for united allowing niko or vdv time and space on the ball or pull rooney in to do some defending which will allow tommy to get the ball out to the full back and then we attack the line with either lennon or bale! here's hoping for a good performance and a result tonight! COYS!
