Sorry for the delay on this post, been caught up a bit with the Alex Ferguson stuff. Anyway, in our previous community team selection posts, you've picked everyone but the attacking midfield players. Because you selected a midfield three instead of a midfield two in our central midfielders post, there are just two spots left to fill. We didn't have a vote for goalkeeper, because duh, Hugo Lloris.
So far, you've selected:
Defense: Assou-Ekotto, Vertonghen, Dawson, Walker.
Central midfield: Huddlestone, Parker, Holtby
Keep that in mind when voting. Here are our options.
Bale - Lennon (regular correct-footed wingers)
Gareth Bale and Aaron Lennon look comfortable and contribute quite a bit defensively when they're regular wingers. They also cross pretty well when they're in these positions. The advantages are obvious, even if it hasn't been the norm for a lot of this season. Lennon seems fit to start, but did tweak his hamstring against Southampton. Something to keep in mind when voting.
Lennon - Bale (inverted and/or FRAAB)
The other way to play these two, either inside-out or with them doing so much FRAABing that their actual positions don't matter much. This would allow Bale to play a role similar to the one he's been playing in the second half of the season.
Bale - Sigurdsson
This team would end up looking more like a Christmas Tree than a 4-3-3 or 4-5-1. For those who hate asymmetrical things. Also, Sigurdsson is very good on set piece delivery.
Bale - Dempsey
For those who value Dempsey's work rate, physicality, height on set pieces and goal-poaching over Sigurdsson.
Vote away. We'll do a final team reveal around 5:30 pm UK, 12:30 pm ET.
