    Harry reported that Aaron Lennon trained today and is available for the Champions League quarter-final, 2nd leg tomorrow night

    Harry added that Niko still struggling with foot injury and he'll 'wait and see' but is 'hopeful' on Steven Pienaar, who trained today.

    Supposedly Charlie's a doubt

    Feel much better about our goal scoring capabilities knowing that Lennon is healthy. It still is going to be interesting to see what sort of combination Harry goes with. Two strikers would make sense but that would leave out one of Bale/Modders/Lennon/VDV....not something I think we should do. Pav with VDV behind...?

    That surely would be exciting. And totally the wrong way to go if we intend to keep a clean sheet

    At this point just drop a defender and play three in the back. I'd much rather see us burn away in a blaze of glory rather than slam our heads against the wall for 90 mins and end 0-0.

    Fair enough. It's just a matter of whether or not Harry believes we can ACTUALLY overcome the deficit. For this to happen keeping a clean sheet is obviously a must. Therefore playing 4 at the back is necessary. We have scored 4 goals plenty of times playing 4 at the back.

    I'd like to see Kaboul at right back, but not sure if Harry will do that. With Huddlestone in the team, VDV seems to stay higher up the pitch. I think its no coincidence that VDV was higher up from right midfield on Saturday, then he has been when playing as second striker, without Huddlestone in the team! My theory is that Huddlestone means less of an onus for VDV to drop deep and make things happen with the ball in the middle third, as Hudd helps us retain possession in more advanced positions and allows VDV to be closer to the box.

    I go with a 4-4-1-1, with all our midfielders being capable of offensive play.

    Gomes

    Kaboul
    Dawson
    Gallas
    Ekotto

    Lennon
    Modric
    Huddlestone
    Bale

    VDV
    Pav/Defoe

    I expect Corluka will play though, and Gallas may or not make it with Kaboul being in CB if he doesn't.

    High scoring draw or narrow loss/ win for us. 2-2,3-3, 3-2 either way.........

    Based on the team news, I think Harry will opt for this starting line-up...

    Gomes

    Kaboul - Dawson - Gallas - Assou-Ekotto

    Huddlestone - Modric

    Lennon - Van der Vaart - Bale

    Pavlyuchenko


    Subs: Cudicini (GK), Bassong, Khumalo, Sandro, Jenas, Pienaar, Defoe

    if vdv doesnt start that'll be the straw that breaks the camels back and he'll be gone in the summer, imo.

    4-2-3-1 or a 3-4-1-2 would be interesting, but i think harry will go with a 4-4-1-1

    You see for me that leaves modric playing in to much of a deffensive role...

    If Harry isn't going get too inventive, I like this better than VDV playing.

    Gomes

    Kaboul - Dawson - Gallas - Assou-Ekotto

    Huddlestone - Sandro

    Lennon - Modic - Bale

    For me I"d settle for a win of any scoreline just to restore some pride .
