Name the Starting XI

Okay, okay, I know I`ve probably let you all down in the last couple of weeks, but there is only a certain number of things I can do in the time I have available!

Therefore, I`m pleased to announce that our purely for fun feature, whereby I ask you to read Rafa Benitez`s mind and name the starting eleven is back!

Therefore, get thinking caps on, analyze who will be absent, think about what formation Rafa might employ and get those starting eleven guesses in our comments thread and we`ll see who gets it perfectly right or the closest!

Tubby is too laid back to change anything regarding our formation so he'll stick with 4-2-3-1 Turnbull-Iva-JT-Cahill-Cole-Luiz-Lampard-Hazard-Oscar-Mata-Torres

iva had a stinker against newcastle so dave will return at RB. don't be surprised if ivan finds himself on the bench. btw dave is now a full spanish international having played the full 90 minutes last night against uruguay fot the current world and european champions. so i'll opt for cech,dave,cahill, terry,cole,luiz,ramires,oscar, mata, hazard, ba. subs bullturd,ivanovic,bertrand, lampard,marin,benayoun and torres.
