The Starting 11 Thread


Boyo

Recommended Posts

You are the manager, everyone's fit, you pick the team. The 11, the formation, everything. Interested to see the lay of the land.

 

If you can, please can you use this template:

 

Goalie

 

Def -- Def -- Def -- Def

 

Mid

 

Mid -- Mid -- Mid

 

Str -- Str

 

(obviously not necessarily that formation :P)

 

Any team you want, not just confined to the top 6, or the Premier League :xyx

 

Cheers!

I've only got 5 minutes so I'll just do Arsenal. In fact I don't even need to as Boyo has done exactly what I would have. :lol

Sagna -- Mertersacker -- Koscielny -- Gibbs

Ozil -- Cazorla

 

Giroud

Walcott and Podolski especially don't have a starting place in that formation, but that leads to an interesting point. People slate Arsenal for only having one top quality striker... Have they forgotten when Walcott and Podolski are fit they can fill the gap with great ease if.. Touch wood, Giroud ever suffers an injury. Arteta would be unlucky to miss out as he's a fine midfielder but on form Ramsey and Wilshere make far too much sense in the middle, and Flamini as a defensive mid is a must. Rosicky as well would be unfortunate to miss out on a place but again, Ozil and Cazorla is a no brainer. I've slated Sagna in the past but this season he's stuck his two fingers right in my face, and good on him. When he eventually leaves us I'd like to see Jenkinson get given a fair crack at the whip with young Hector Bellerin as his deputy. Gibbs is a no brainer as well, Monreal does a job, but not as well as a sure future England staple in Gibbs. I'm a bit sad really that Vermaelen doesn't command a starting place anymore, I'm a huge fan of his but this Per/Bosscielny partnership is the mutts nuts at the moment. People don't seem to realise just how strong our squad is, every position has a more than capable back up from the keepers to the strikers, even our young guns like Serg Gnabry can do a stella job when called upon.

OP updated. Looking through my 11's it dawned on me that I'm very much a "f*ck it, let's outscore them - give kids a chance" hybrid of Kevin Keegan and Dario Gradi :P. I'm well aware that my teams are going to concede a lot of goals and lose too often, and that I'd get sacked, but bah gawd I'd go out in a blaze of glory :lol

 

Cheers!
