I thought it would be interesting to get people’s thoughts on our starting eleven against Middlesbrough.
I know there could be a player or two brought in by then and possibly Berbatov could be gone but here’s what I fancy.
RB Hutton (probably won’t be fit, maybe Zokora)
CB King (again, may not play this game, probably Dawson)
LM Lennon (Bale may play here and Ekotto at left back)
I like the idea of Bent on his own up front in away games and Giovani playing in behind but I’m worried about the strength of that midfield away from home. I’m sure we can get away with those four at the Lane and hit teams fast and early like we always do but it just seems too lightweight for tough away games against lesser teams where they will get kicked all over the place.
I’d appreciate your thoughts, even if it’s to dig me out or reply anonymously saying I’ve made mistakes like some of you love to do (could be a few Arsenal fans in disguise but I like the banter!)
Changes to come…
I’ve registered the whitehartpain.com domain so the address will probably change in the next few days. I’ll let you know when it will happen and you should get re-directed if you go to the usual address anyway but just a heads up.
