Anyone think we may risk 3 at the back?
Finnan Carra Aurelio/Riise
Kewell Gerrard Babel
Yeah not bad. But no Kewell on the right. Play Benayoun there. Something like
Finnan Hyppia Carra
Yossi Gerrard Babel
We either win 10-0 or lost 4-0. We can't afford to hang on to a 1-0 lead and cough it up in the last minute.
Beşiktaş have injuries at fullback. Their wings look weak - I watched the Fenerbahce game and they didn't have much to offer on the wings - everything came up the middle through tight and concise passing. The only time they put a dangerous cross into the box was in the 95th minutes and they scored - only to have it ruled off.
If we choke the middle of the park with MomoMash, we may be able to get away with 3 out and out defenders.
Problem is, we've shown fuck all on the wings ourselves. We also have shown a fantastic resiliency at the back but fuck all up front. Is it wise to throw the book out the window and bet it all on a sputtering attack?
Babel seems to have a magnet in the middle of the park the way he cuts in, and the right wing has been, well, abysmal recently. But I guess that par for the course when we play a centre-forward in that position.
Either way - we aren't up against a team that's gonna run us ragged down the lines.
