i think newton will start ahead of benanyoun, newton seems to be liked by pardew.

Id also like to see collins at centre half with ferdinand and gabiddon right ack get fcukin tomas repka out of it but pardew wont have the bottle to do that.

Anyone think perhaps we should play with wing backs?

Something like:
----------------------------------Carroll

-----------Gabbiadon--------Ferdinand--------------- Ward

Newton-------------------------Dailly---------------------------Konchesky

---------------Benayoun-------------------------Noble

--------------------Harewood---------------Zamora

Not entirely sure myself just thought i'd throw it in as not seen anyone else mention it. Should mean we're strong defensively and this system may allow Benayoun to me more effective and see more of the ball than if he's forced to play out of the wing.

I can see him playing a similar formation to the one used at Ipswich away last season (the semi) most of the season, not too sure about if Pardew will use it at home though.

.................... Carroll

Repka - Anton - Gabbidon - Konchesky

..................Dailly - Nige

.................... Yossi
Harewood...........................Etherington

....................Zamora

He does need to get that big name striker asap tho.

indeed you do...the score is going to be 4-1 as i keep pointing out. you are, however, right in your assumption that west ham are about to give blackburn a pasting.

I like it, change Noble maybe with Etherington?!? Don't know if the Etherington could replace Noble's bite but that is a very attack minded formation, probably suicide but I'd like to see it tried!
