In these early rounds of the Carling Cup, we have the right to go a little off the wall with our squad selection… so here it goes:
- Gomes – some people think Cudicini was great, some think he made some crucial mistakes; anyhow, it’s time for HG to reclaim his spot
- BAE (subbed at the half with Bale) – am I crazy? No sir, I just think this could be the right time for him to break the curse if ever
- Corluka – need cover at the CB position
- Dawson – welcome back, we missed you!
- Naughton – a promising star for the future
- Gio – give him a go ‘Arry… it’s not even transfer market season and speculation has surfaced that he’s leaving for Spain
- Hudd & Jenas – the two need some playing time together; they will have to pair up during the season
- Lennon – needs to regain some confidence lost in the last two matches… sub in Bentley later to do the same
- Defoe – wanted Pav but apparently he’s hurt; good opportunity for JD to score some goals again
- Crouch – looking solid so far
So it looks like I’ve picked a squad based on confidence-building. What do you guys think?
