With the transfer window sort of taking some sort of shape I thought now would be a good time to show who I’d like to brought it this summer.
Now you might say similar articles to this have been done before and your right they have but one thing articles like this do, it’s getting people talking!
I’m going to get straight to the point and show the team I think we will have come the start of next season, a 4-2-2-2 formation consisting of;
Krul, Simpson, S.Taylor, Coloccini, M’bengue, Cabaye, Tiote, Ben Arfa, N’zogbia, Ba, Erding.
I think that team is realistic, well balanced and more importantly, it’s a good team in my opinion. We have a steady defence with Cabaye and Tiote protecting it although Cabaye will look to get forward from time to time.
Ben Arfa and N’Zogbia would bring flair, creativity and pace to the team which would compliment the front who in Erding you have someone who likes to drop deep and Ba who not only is a target man, likes to run in behind as well.
I know people are going to say where is Nolan/Barton etc but if we had these players, everyone fit this is what I would play – but when do we ever have everyone fit?
The new signings in that team would cost about £30 million I’d guess but with Enrique looking like he’s on his way out that would balance it out nicely.
So what do you think of the team I picked and what team would you like to see running out at St. James’ Park next season?
Onwards and upwards!
