Default What is our strongest 11 these days?

Nani must surely remain on the right until Valencia grows a set of balls and you've got to acknowledge Berbatov's current form so i'd move Rooney to left forward.

My personal choice:

VDS
Rafael-Rio-Vidic-Evra
Fletcher-Carrick-Scholes
Nani-Berbatov-Rooney.

Do you think that restricts Rooney? For me hes far too complete a player to just use as a centre forward. He's shown in the past he can play from left forward, link the midfield with attack, still get in the box and score goals.

I dont get the Valencia stick He's been very good for us.

I've always championed Berbs but last season a front 3 of Vallers, Nani and Rooney was obviously our best formation.But how can you now say (even the Berba haters) that Berbs doesn't warrant a first team place.

I'd have

VDS

Rafa
Vidic
Rio (when fit)
Evra

Vallers
Scholes/Giggs/Carrick (Happy with any tbh)
Fletch
Nani

Rooney
Berbs

Im not giving Valencia stick, hes a good player who had a good debut season, but someone with his ability should be doing far more, youd have to question him as a regular starter if this goes on. Especially with Nani's best position being on the right.

Nani is a better player than Valencia, but how many games will Giggs start from the left this season?

Would rather have Nani on the left and Valencia on the right than start with Park on the left and Nani on the right for most games.

Harsh. It's only been two games he's played in.

Valencia needs to improve on what was a good debut season last year, but he already offers a lot. The thing I like about him is that while on his day he can make a fantastic contribution to the attack, when that doesn't happen what you get with him as a minimum is excellent defensive contributions. I doubt he'd have allowed the play to build up from the left for Arteta's goal half as easily as Fletcher and Neville did. It was a frustratingly half-arsed effort from the pair of them.

'best 11' is meaningless btw. who against? home or away? in what situation? who's in form? who played last week?

i don't think any top team has a 'best 11'. not us, not barca, not real, not chelsea, not spain.

and nani, who was also on the right. the way they allowed those crosses in was appalling, especially the second one when they'd already had a warning.

i don't think these questions dictate the barcelona selection too much, they put out their best team and trust them to do the job whatever the situation. f*** the opposition.

in our pomp we were very much the same.
