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:
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
LM: Bale/Modric - ok, so Bale twice!
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?

I think we do have a few talented youngsters ready in the wings to come through....I think Taarabt has shown glimpses of promise and 'Arry said that his skill on the training pitch has to be seen to be believed, if he can harness this in a game situation he could be a great player. The future doesn't look too bad methinks.
Me too. And we still have young Alnwick and isn't Peckhart still on loan? And if Campbell stays...
Overall, if 'arry is just gee'ing the boys up, then next season could see us back where we were three seasons back. It took a relegation before Hoddle and co gelled. So, maybe this bunch'll gel just with the thought of what might have been.
Here's to next season - To Infinity and Beyond....
