First choice lineups?

I was just getting undeservedly annoyed probably at Pardew, wondering if his dream lineup with a fully fit squad is completely different to mine, especially since he said everything right to begin with, we were to be playing good fast paced attacking football, passing it not hoofing it. What would everyones dream starting 11 out of our players for the most important match of the season or whatever.

 

                              Krul

 

Simspon        Saylor      Colo      Santon    (Simpson only because of no other choice really atm. Hopefully replaced)

 

                      Guthrie    Tiote                    (Abeid maybe more suited but haven't seen enough of him and if he can perform at top, Guthrie impressed me plenty before)

 

            HBA        Cabaye    Marveaux      (lost faith in our wide players, haven't really seen enough Marveaux but he did impress briefly and Jonas has been crap of late)

 

                                Ba

 

Begun to think Cabaye is wasted playing deeper, and we need his goal threat, he's plenty capable of holding up ball and playing killer passes, he'd be a more possessive central playmaker than HBA, though I wouldn't ask HBA to play too wide, merely link up with Cabaye and Ba.

Pretty similar tbh, would push HBA and an-other (maybe Vuckic but he needs to grow into a first team player) ahead of Cabaye so its a 4-2-1-2-1 formation.

 

Would need the 2 behind BA to be willing to interchange sides, pull wide when needed, support the midfield when under pressure and provide a link with BA so pretty demanding positions.

 

We reallly need to replace Simpson and play Santon, full backs are the only positions preventing us going witha variation of 4-3-3 now imo

                                      Ba

 

 

obviously no chance of that.

Don't know if it would work but, I'd like to see the following given a try...

 

                                      Krul 

 

 

Simpson        S. Taylor    Coloccini      Santon

 

 

            Cabaye        Tiote      Guthrie

 

 

                                Ben Arfa

 

 

                      Ba                    Best

 

 

A bit like the formation Keegan used with Owen, Viduka and Martins up front.

Colo  Colo  Colo  Colo

  Cabaye Tiote Cabaye

            Ba Ba Ba

 

Thought we could go 4-3-3 in home games.

I'd go with this too but like you've said, there's nee chance of that happening :okay:

 

 

 

 

 

As it stands though, think this is Pardew's most likely long term plan.....(if everyone is fit):

 

 

                          Krul

 

Simpson    Saylor  Coloccini    Santon

 

Jonas        Tiote      Cabaye    Marveaux

 

                        Ben Arfa

 

                            Ba

Pointless including Taylor as we SHOULD have a replacement in within the month, so as of current:

 

-------------------------------------------------------

 

                            Krul

 

Simpson  Williamson  Coloccini  Santon

 

Jonas        Tiote          Cabaye      Hatem

 

                      Ba        Best

 

-------------------------------------------------------

 

There is obviosly still a couple of weak links in the squad, and the right side will not link up well at all, but unless we bring anyone else in I would atleast like to see us try something like this.

I'm thinking as we have wingers who cant/dont cross, lets stop playing 4-4-2/4-4-1-1 as its pointless if your playing wingers like that, change it to 4-3-3 or 4-2-3-1 etc and try something different.

So you think we play better with 10 men than 11, different if nothing else.

Would love to see this, tiote as the breaker in mid and abied doing abit if the same, but with more ball playing involved, cabaye as the playmaker, HBA do what he does best find space and try to make something happen, which is whay santon is left back, keep some good width when HBA tucks in and floats about.  Jonas there, because he is smart enough to know when to tuck in if 2 of the middle men go and we need to cover and he work rate, Hopefully would get more attacking play out of him with abeid and tiote covering raylor.

Since we are dreaming, I've shoe-horned us into my favorite system.  Chelsea under Mourinho:

 

                              Krul

 

 

S. Taylor  Williamson  Coloccini  Santon

 

 

                              Tiote

 

                    Gurthrie  Cabaye

 

Ben Arfa                                          Marveaux

 

 

                                Ba

 

Edit: Jonas OUT - completely forgot about the Marv...

Fuck knows why people always have the GK at the top and then the rest of the team upside down so the left back is on the right and the right back on the left. I'm not having any of that shit:

 

                Best    Ba

 

Ben Arfa  Cabaye  Tiote  Jonas

 

Santon  Williamson Coloccini Simpson

 

                      Krul
