I know he started and was awful v QPR , but so was everyone else for me - bar Walker and Parker....
I reckon it's clear when fit Adebayour and Defoe are our best front 2 - easy
I would drop Modric even if he stays - his attitude and input into games lately has stunk
Defoe needs to play with somone like Ade (if he stays) to get best from him
VDV is best dropping off and being clever causing problems sometimes joining up in the box as well - but will be best behind 2 front men making runs
and Bale n Lennon giving width
Caulker to come back with Kaboul (hopefully Dawson to come back) Ledely Coaching role?
Nelson Gallas Time to go I think?
Naughton to come back to cover and put pressure on BAE - Livermore likewise to do the same for Parker
Modric to rotate with VDV - Saha for Ade -
which for me leaves only Defoe as our most unique and ironically undroppable player in the squad - oh yeah he is our top scorer despite being used so sparingly and in a ridiculously stop start way ......when he builds up momentum and confidence he scare defenders/ goalies bottom line we need more goals
and i'm convinced he can be our 20 plus a season man if he's shown more faith
He is the best finisher at the club only he and Saha (on his day ) come anywhere near him obviously VDV is world class but is better playing behind them and joining up late as v Swansea
Ade edges Saha in workrate (when he can be bothered) and so gets the nod if we
can afford him
and so our best team without spending anything (apart on Ade's contract )- on current form for next season
Bale (stay left) Parker Lennon
BAE Kaboul Caulker Walker
Tell me why this would not make more chances and score more goals
