    So there has been a lot of conjecture following last weeks relatively poor performance, particularly regards the balance of the side so what formation are we going to see this weekend?

    When you give your view remember to say whether it is what you would go for or what you think Juande will choose.

    I would choose:

    Gomes

    Gunter King Woody Bale

    O'Hara
    Bentley GDS
    Modric

    Bent Berba

    I think Juande will go with:

    Gomes

    Zokora Dawson Woody BAE

    Jenas

    Bentley Modric Bale

    GDS

    Bent

    This is the formation I want to see.

    ------------------Gomes----------------
    Zokora-----King---Woodgate-----BAE
    ------------------Jenas-----------------
    Bentley----------Modric-----------Bale
    -------------------Gio-------------------
    -------------------Bent------------------

    Subs: Hudd on for Jenas or Modric, Gunter on for BAE, Lennon on for Bentley/Modric

    I don't know for sure which way Ramos will go. He may stick with Dawson in CB. He may also stick Lennon on at LM again and shift Bale into LB. That's not too bad in my mind though.

    It'll probably be the same side as Boro but maybe Modric will play further up?

    are you kidding me you want BAE and Zokora in after their crap performance last week also we have to have a defensive presence in midfield and I think that unless we buy someone that we have to use The HUD, Jenas, or Zokora

    Everyone has an off-game. Whilst they both didn't cover themselves in glory doesn't nescessarily mean they should be dropped. They did quite well in preseason, so deserve another chance. Knee-jerk reactions won't help. I wouldn't mind replacing Gunter with Zokora at RB, but that's no guarantee he will be better as he's still learning. While having Bale at LB would be better than BAE, I think we need him more at LM, especially as he's dangerous pushing forward.

    Regarding the DM, I think Huddlestone is better, but Ramos is sticking with Jenas for a reason, so i'll hear him out.

    LMAO
    Got a point though neither of them will defend and Zakora proved on saturday that his defensive qualities are at best suspect.

    Mate we're playing Sunderland AT HOME, King will sort the defence out if he plays. Bentley isn't a hit the byeline winger, neither is Bale so they should be able to handle it. Plus if they play deep it's like having FIVE at the back, Bentley wants to ping the balls in from bloody miles away anyway. If we'd been able to score goals at Boro we'd have won regardless of our ****e defence, this formation could anihilate a team as mediocre as Sunderland. They won't be expecting it that's for sure ! lol.

    I would have gone for:

    -------------------Gomes--------------------
    Zokora------King-------Woodgate-----Bale
    -------------Jenas------Huddlestone-------
    Bentley------------------------------Modric
    ----------Santos---------Bent---------------

    Could have switched Hud for Lennon as an impact player through the second half.
