PLAY A CONSISTENT AND SETTLED 11?!?!?! With a team misfiring on so many cylinders the #1 priority is fielding as consistent an 11 as possible!! When can we expect to see this without players playing out of position?? Starting on Sunday we should seriously be going about playing an 11 who only change due to injury or tiredness. The experiments need to stop! If you are trying to create a machine then components need to stay in place The starting 11 I'd like to see from here on in unchanged win lose or draw: 4-4-2/4-5-1 --------Carroll -----Rio----Tweety G.Neville--------Heinze ---------Keane -----------Scholes -Ronaldo---------Giggs --------Rooney -------------VNR With scope for change only in the Rooney for Smith slot. Apart from that, they should be left alone to sort themselves out, get familar as a unit and play together for more then a game a month The bench will just have to shut up and bide its time or, wait for injuries, suspensions or fatigue to kick in, by which time I would hope the machine can assimilate new components into a bigger picture! If Scholes is out, put Kleberson in, full stop. Let him grow in the team and form a chemistry with the rest of the midfield. If VNR is out put in Saha, etc, etc the players need to know their roles now and promptly play their position in the general scheme of things. We've been unsettled for numerous reasons for a while but, with a full squad to chose from now, it is time we fielded an 11 people know/expect before kick off every game. It is the biggest advantage Arsenal have over all their rivals right now. They have a machine, an infrastructure in place and they can slot players in and out of it with no problem - see Fabregas for Viera/Edu Ljunberg for Pires, Pires for Reyes etc- we need the same thing. If we don't settle a starting 11 the season will fall apart. Ronaldo needs to start playing every game and have at least for an eight game stretch, same goes for Rooney. How are they ever to create a chemistry if every time they all play together they are having to second guess each others actions on the pitch? I don't need to mention how important this weekends game is for us. I would hope we play the 11 I just put up. I would also hope we stick with the team fielded whether they produce the goods or not. Otherwise, as a team how are we ever going to grow?
