mvuemba on the right sounds good - he's been playing well when he's come on. davis and hughes will be solid, hopefully sol and distin will to. slight concern that Tony didnt pick crouch becuase he wanted to prove we play good football... but actually, I think that this is a way of playing that could work very well - and means that come west brom, we will still have at least one set of fresh legs!

Well the Wolfsburg manager was quoted as saying we play long balls up to Crouch for flick-ons, put him right didn't it?

Strange one really. No height upfront at all, a bit like when England play

Last time we made a dramatic change to formation in a cup match, I seem to remember beating Leeds 3-2 with Bradders and Svensson playing wide
