    I think Ramos will go something like this :

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

    Hutton--------Woodgate/Corluka-----King/Corluka---------Bale

    ---------------------------------Zokora

    Bentley---------------Jenas--------------Modric---------Dos Santos

    --------------------------------Pavlychenko

    I suspect Corluka is mainly here to cover the entire injury prone back four. It's not a bad team but it's not ever going to worry the top four. Not enough world class, not enough strength in depth, no quality defensive midfielders at all, al lot of inexperience at prem level etc etc.

    I thinks you don"t know much about Corluka, but he is one of best defenders in league, he said that he wouldn"t come in Tottenham if he is not going to play..

    Mate I thinks you don't know too much about our back four ! lol. There is ALWAYS at least one of those four missing through injury. It's Hutton now, then it will be King, then when King's fit again it'll be Woodgate etc etc. Corluka will play evey week, but he may have to play in a different position across the back four every week.
    BTW do you know if Corluka can play left back as well ? That may be his best chnace of a permanent place, with Bale moving to midfield, cos thay boy is NOT a defender.

    Can Corluka play def mid ? Be absolutely fantastic if he can, but I thought he was just a very versatile defender ie anywhere along the back four.

    We need to play 2 srikers unless Payl is good at being the only striker Russians please help me with this one

    Bale is a fantastic attacking full back and ideally I would like to see him at LW but we don't have any other option that is even decent at LB unless Corluka can play there

    Campbell

    Side looks very good, defo the right sort of formation and players. I agree about Bale 100%, however if Corluka goes to left back that brings the doughnut Zokora back into the first team as he's the only other def mid option and we definately don't want that. However he has his fans, and it looks like Ramos may be one of them. F**k knows why though !

    Corluka can"t play in LB, he is natural CB,RB, but in Man City he was playing on DM and he was pretty good..I see in every of your team there is Hutton, but he will be out for about 3,4 weeks, and remember that he didn"t play any game friendly or league he is far from good form, so i reckon Corluka will play RB, if he shows very good, that will be his permanent position..

    Loving the look of that squad.

    Its surprising to see how many people would play modric out of position in DM. Anyone who watched the chavski game will know he is immense when going forward.

    my XI would be

    ------------Gomes
    Hutton---King--Woody--Bale
    -------Corluka---Hudd-------
    Bentley----Modric----GDS---
    --------Pavlyuchenko---------

    Sometimes Lennon could come on for GDS, or bale could move up forward as GDS is still young. Lennon and GDS could be used as second strikers as well. Bent could be used alongside Pava in a 4-4-2. Jenas off the bench too.

    this seems ok, but... I would rather see Corluka on the RB then DM.. I mean, RB and CB are his best positions... he is good as a DM, hell, he can even play a striker, but that is not using him in his best position..
    on the other hand, from what I have seen so far this season, Jenas, Zokora and Modric, who all 3 played DM, are lacking either stamina, or strength or positioning to play that position adequately... Corluka has all that qualities on top of a pretty decent pace which makes him a reasonable selection for a DM...

    Huts for me at right back he is diferent gravey.

    JJ could be droped for thi one if Ledders plays as he is a more capable captain. If so then utilise Charlie in a DM role and alow Luka to support from deep. This should also force Bently and GDS to stay wide and do their jobs properly.
