Chelsea have lots of good central midfielders and few strikers, which is what the system accomodates for. While United is the reverse and are only playing it as Keane needs support in the centre of the park nowadays. Also it's faring quite while for us atm anyway. Would still prefer to see 4-4-2 wid United tho, at least then we could play 2 of Giggs, Ronaldo, Park and Richardson, rather than the one the 4-3-3 allows for.

If Joe Cole is dropped tonight, and Rooney is put on the left then it means that England still have problems on that left side and the midfield in general still needs sorting out, as was admitted by Eriksson last week.
IMO Beckham plays much better in the middle, and SWP should, on current form, definitely play on the right where his pace can terrorise any defender. Rooney also plays a lot better in a free role off a main striker (he should never play as lone striker), which leaves just 1 more place for Gerrard or Lampard. So if Sven had the balls, imo he should play
J.Cole, Gerrard/Lampard (preferably Gerrard on current form), Beckham, SWP, but he wants to accomodate all the big names.

According to the news Sven is dropping Joe Cole. I can't believe it. Why drop someone when they scored the winner for England against Wales?? :eek:

I think it was a deflection. IMO Joe Cole is crap and doesn't deserve to be in Sven's first eleven.

Because it was a deflected goal and not of his own making? At the end of the day, he's not even a winger and keeps drifting inside. Dropping him for the team's top goalscorer and only current one capable of filling the lone striker role makes good sense to me.

EDIT: Following from what endeavour's said, I'd defo try out 4-4-2 of J Cole-Gerrard-Beckham-SWP.

TBH I don't see anyone scoring a really good goal tonight. Think it will be a lucky thing. I will eat my hat though if I am wrong. Well thats if I stay awake long enough!

That's a bit OTT?! I think he's capable of doing a decent job on the left, but who else would replace him anyway?

Drop Lampard, then we might get somewhere. That midfield is far too congested for anything to get through - either way.

I think he's more of a CM and doesn't have the discipline to play on the left. Downing is a possible candidate for the left. I may be fishing here but what do you guys think of Greening (WBA)?

I think he might as well give it a go. He doesn't really have the right personnel, but he's proven himself unwilling to drop any of the Big 3 (Goldenballs, Goldenballs Mk II and Gerrard!).
