As you probably know, Gareth Bale will not play against Reading on Tuesday. If you didn't know, now you do. Bale was shown a yellow card for diving against Sunderland, even though Craig Gardner made contact with him in two different places. It was his fifth of the season. Oh well, it is what it is.
If you're a CFC regular, you know the drill. When something like this happens, I like to ask the community who should start in place of [insert unavailable star], and then we debate it. Let's do it again.
Who do you want to see get the start in place of Bale against Reading? Clint Dempsey and Gylfi Sigurdsson are both fit, while any injury or suspension seems like a decent opportunity to shoehorn Scott Parker into the team if at all possible. We benefit from having a lot of guys who can play in multiple positions. Vote and discuss.
