    At the beginning of last year, I don't think anyone would have predicted that our best XI would look anything like what it did at the end of the season:

    Gomes; Corluka, Dawson, King, Assou-Ekotto; Lennon, Huddlestone, Modric, Bale; Defoe, Crouch/Pavlyuchenko.

    The rise of some players (eg: Bale) took us all by surprise. So,for a bit of fun, what do you predict will be considered our best XI at the end of May 2011? You can use players we already have and/or add players you think we'll sign.....


    I'm not going to add any players that we currently don't have, so mine is:

    Gomes; Naughton, Dawson, King, Bale; Huddlestone, Modric, Livermore/Sandro; Lennon/Giovani, Defoe, Rose/Giovani.

    Gomes

    Corluka Dawson Gallas/King Bale

    Lennon Modric Hudds GDS

    Defoe New Striker/Crouchy

    I really think Gallas (if he signs will be good for us throughout the season)

    actually i take that back.... this is what i would like to see....with huddlestone banging in more goals, in a more advanced role...

    ........gomes.......
    naughton..dawson..gallas..bale
    ............sandro.............
    lennon..huddlestone.modric
    ......new striker....

    I think hudd neeeds to be more advanced, with his passing and shooting ability, he can become a goal scoring center mid. Hope harry sees his potential, to become one of the greatest!

    I think footy will still be played with 11 men at the end of 2011 mate!! :302:

    Anyway I think our line up will be something like this:
    Gomes - Corluka, Dawson, Bassong, BAE - Huddlestone, Modric - Lennon, Kranjcar, Bale - New CF

    Cudicini
    Corluka Dawson King BAE
    Lennon Hudds Modric Bale
    Pav Gio

    Get a feeling Gomes might have a long lay off (not this one) and struggle to get back into the team

    I'm partial to a 4-5-1/4-3-3/4-2-3-1 hybrid. It would look something like this...

    ----------------Gomes-----------------
    Corluka------Dawson----King------BAE
    -----------THudd---Modric/Sandro-----
    ----------------Modric/Krancjar--------
    Lennon-----------------------------Bale
    --------------Defoe/new striker-------------


    We aren't really the Dutch but our play is well suiting to this when good ole Crouchy isn't playing, we tend to lob the ball forward too often like we're fresh out of the championship. Are midfielders are so versatile that we could take any of those shapes.
    I considered a classic 4-5-1 as opposed to the 4-5-1 attacking that i have pictured, but our wingers are too good not to be featured. At the very least we could put ARSEnal to shame with our midfield play, although I would prefer we have an attempt everyone once in a while (unlike arsenal).

    -------gomez-------
    kaboul --king--BAE
    lennon--kranjar--hudd--bale
    -------modric-------
    pav/defoe-----------crouch

    ok but come on that looks like a good team for the champions league 4-5-1 or maybe swap crouch for pav but they both have good european experience.

    ----------------------Gomes---------------------

    --Naughton---King----Dawson-----Bale--

    Lennon---Vand der Vart----Huddlestone---Modric--

    ---------------- Defoe--Dzeko-------------

    Away from home in CL we'll play Dzeko up front alone either putting in a holding eg Sandro palacious allowing Van der Vart forward or push bale up to left wing move in Ekketo again moving VDC up, i know Modric is better in the centre but He's better out wide than van der vart besides he'l be drawn to cut in and play more centrally,allowing bale to overlap very often...Bringing Dzeko to white hart lane may seem optimistic but city aren't interested anymore with tevez and Balototelli,Wolfsburg have had a horrible start to the season and obviously this is all reliant on spurs getting fourth again....
