    Where Does it Leave Us?

    I'm just hoping that the talk about 'arry not fancying the squad is just that - talk, and then the issue with attracting players isn't that bad.
    If he can work with them and get that belief back (which should be easier after Sunday - as although they lost, they played like the team we know they can be). (aside - I though Bent worked his socks off. He was closing down better than RK!)
    I can't see too much wrong with it - I'd go for:

    Keeper
    Centre Back
    Left Back/Mid

    IMHO the rest are/should be good enough.
    GK: Cudicini/Gomes - No. Cudicini hasn't played enough and Gomes (although looking better) still doesn't inspire
    RB: Gunter/Hutton/Corluka - OK
    CB: Dawson/Woodgate/Rocha/King - Suspect with King/Rocha
    LB: Bale/Ekotto - I'd personally push Bale up to LM
    RM: Lennon/Bentley - I think Bentley will come good
    CM: Jenas/Huddlestone/Taarabt
    CM: Palacios/Zokora
    LM: Bale/Modric - ok, so Bale twice!
    CF: Keane/defoe/dos
    CF: Pav/Bent

    So even if Jenas/Bent/Bentley go, then theres enough cover. 20+ player squad. Surely enough for 3 competitions?
    So maybe just maybe, 'arry is hoping that talk of a mass clear out is a 'spur' to get these players to perform for the rest of the season?
