    This is or has been the problem. Trying to shoehorn big buys into a first 11 at the expense of balance or the need to nullify the opposition.

    Sorry mate. You must have posted before I replied. I am still unconvinced about silva and KDB in the same team and would rather go with width navas and Stirling and Dave/KDB in the centre. Yaya/nasri as subs and Delph/ Fernandinho as our engine.

    Depends who we're playing; unfortunately we don't seem to bother with the opposition.

    My belief is that it's a form issue than a player issue. If all are at their best, that is our best team. Zab and Kola are are width. They've been for 5 years running thats our identity.
    Silva and DeBryune are cerebral creators. Aguero is Aguero. The issue is CM and how we play it. If we switch to a high pressure team, I like Delph/Dihno as the CMs. Also love Delphs movement almost as good as Nasri. But with more energy. Yaya then is limited to running the team out of the back, like he did yesterday, with the space to actually make plays.

    And enough energy to chase down the Valencia of the world.

    If Pep comes here, I'm almost certain barring Yaya choosing to leave, he will be our Alonzo.

    Hope you are right mate. I can't wait to see who he tries at pivot.

    Any 11 as long as it doesn't have Kev, David and Yaya in at the same time. It just doesn't fit.

    I can see a central 3 of Yaya, Silva and DeBryune with Pep going out to get speedsters on the wings.

    Yay and Silva are phenomenal possession players. Pep cherishes that. DeBryune will need some work, but he is a gamer.

    Eccles of course! Just Eccles!!
    After the 101 pages of hyperbole after the West Ham match I guess we haven't got eleven players who are strong enough so we had better just give up altogether and just have Joe Hart in goal and Sergio running down the other end!!!!
