Bum bum bum bum bum. Hopefully Defoe's injury won't give him a long layoff, but what formation do we go for without him? In particular for the next few games while we wait for Ade to return.
I'd be inclined to push Dempsey forward but with Holtby or perhaps even Bale close behind (with the other one on the wing) for Newcastle, and for Lyon I reckon I'd give Obika a run.
Please don't turn this into another "I know better than Levy & AVB, if they'd got a striker like I told them to we'd be ok" thread, we all know our squad weaknesses and it's typical this happens in the first game after the window closes, but sulking about it isn't going to help.

EVENING FELLOW YIDS.
Would like to see Gylfi get some starts over Dempsey.
He(Dempsey) seems like he's dragging a beer barrel behind him,he's too slow, has poor ball control and rarely goes past anyone to create any chances,should of stayed at Fulham where they don't play at such a fast pace.
As for Gylfi on the other hand,has the pace and i'm sure given some playing time will create his own chances and at least be able to keep up with play.
As for the rest i think it should be.
WALKER DAWSON VERT BAE
LENNON PARKER HOLTBY BALE
As for the midfield,I think that we should always try to play 2 wide men with maybe Holtby covering for Bale,although i'm not quite sure if he's played in that position,he has a good left foot and sure he can deliver a good ball in for the attacking players.
At the mo,Bale is looking awesome and i'm convinced that if some of the rest(WALKER,BAE,DEMBELE)to name a few then we can start playing with the passion that you need to make it into the CL.

bit of a disaster with defoe being out but at least ade is back.
I like the team with holtby behind ade. I really like the look of holtby. he looks like a right bargin. seems like a good personaility too.
ekotto seems to have improved attacking game over the last year or so. but his defensive laziness still lets him down.
he was awful against Norwich the other day.
nearly every decent Norwich attack came down his side.
he just wasn't bothered about trying to stop crosses to holt for some reason.
he would be such a good LB if he actually cared & made more of an effort. shame.
still better than most LBs in the prem.

Didn't Kane come back from loan as well?
It's an odd season - Bale as current top scorer, and with hardly any assists, Daffy now second with more assists... a bit topsy turvy. Maybe it's just a logical follow on from the past couple of seasons where Bale seemed to like to play more in the scoring role rather than provider - well, at least he has a fair few shots (136 last season and 85 so far this).
Having said that, There seem to be a number of balls that go into the box from wide and that no one gets on the end of. So maybe Bale's assist record (or lack of?) is just a product of his own speed (or poor delivery?)?
Personally, I think I'd have Dempsey up front (as he doesn't appear to like playing wide), Holtby behind and Bale/Lennon still playing wide.
