I expected a response like that, which is why I didn't bother replying to him.
To explain my choices a bit more, I'd opt to try three at the back, and I think putting Rice there with both Balbuena and Diop will do his progress no harm at all.
I like Masuaku as an attacking force, but don't think he brings enough defensively, so I'd fire him out to the wing in place of Antonio and let him show us what he can do if he has less defensive responsibilities.
Snoddy has done quite well up until now, and his omission isn't down to anything he's done badly, I just think it's time for Yarmo to step it up and get some games under his belt now. Snoddy is there in reserve if required.
The centre of the park is what it is, and no combination at present is going to look great considering how we've been playing, but if we can get Wilshere doing what he does best in a creative sense we can have both Noble and Sanchez covering any gaps he may leave.
Anderson is a funny one, because I'm fairly certain that Pellegrini bought him as a winger, and he has played there for two of the last three seasons with Lazio.
But, the other season of those three he played as a second striker/number ten, and he looked good when he played there for us, so why not?
That will pose issues when Lanzini comes back, but those are the kind of issues any manager doesn't mind having.
Arnie up top is a no-brainer, although I think we may have to dip into the market for a second striker in January, as we don't seem to have decent cover who can come in and do a job in his place if required.
Anyway, I've never claimed to have a "refined knowledge of football," but it's Thursday afternoon, I'm on a tea break and had fuck all else to do
