Mods, please move this post if it's in the wrong forum (I know there's the Champions League section...)
I say we go "balls-to-the-wall" in the home match and go out with a bang. So... what formation/players would you all like to see? I wouldn't mind some players getting a rest and giving some other players a go, why not? Though I honestly don't know much about the other players we could play (Danny Rose?), so please suggest some for me!
I'm going to start the conversation with something nuts: Would setting up with a 3-5-2, 3-6-1, or a 3-4-3, or something with 3 defenders, be crazy? Maybe now's the best time to try something as mad as that kind of formation, with so many defenders injured and us down 4 in aggregate. If we flood the midfield we could play high pressure, but get caught like mad on the counter. It'd be daredevil, especially with the wide play from Madrid on the wings, so please tear this post and lineup apart! Maybe something like this...
--------------- Gomes -----
Charlie?/Bassong? -- Dawson -- BAE
----------Sandro -- Huddlestone --- (2 DM's to add some sanity)
----- Lennon? --- Modric? ------ Bale/Pienaar/Kranjcaar?
----------- Pav?/Vdv? --- Defoe?
I know this sounds odd, but please tear apart this formation because I'm all for good discussion!
