The Numbers Game – Festive Form – Midfielders

Continuing our members articles which examine the numbers behind the previous four Gameweeks, we now switch our attention to the midfield area. With a packed festive programme providing hat-tricks for Santi Cazorla, Gareth Bale and Theo Walcott, it was a period which again saw the heavy-hitting midfielder come to the fore. Incredibly, however, that trio were surpassed by the performances of a player who has rolled back the years to recapture a level of returns and consistency that we perhaps thought were behind him.

      Anyone else worried about the selection of Turnbull?

          Everybody. If no news by Saturday I`m just gonna risk it. Though I imagine we may get some kinda clue or hint from Rafa in his Friday press conference.

          My prediction is he'll still be in goal for the Arsenal game, but no more - you'll have to burn a transfer to get him out anyway so you have to weigh up whether that is worth the DGW - of which there is still a risk he won't play both games (I think he will, but there's still a risk).

          Rate these from top to bottom. Not current form obviously. Speaking of their prime.
          I'll throw in Lampard and Gerrard just for the fun of it.

                                    Yeah youre right swap Pirlo and Lamps about. Gerrard and Scholes is tough but id say Gerrard just edges it imo

                                        Scholes passing and shot is hard to be ignored. IMO Scholes above Gerrard. Small but still good in header.

                                                I just think, how many times did he almost single handedly rescue Liverpool? And in the big games too. He was very very good. But, with Pirlo & Nedved I didn't have the pleasure of watching them week in week out years ago, so maybe it's a bit harsh on them.

                                                And I still think Zidane is the best player I've ever seen.

I think it is worth a punt, only problem is I need Lambert for this double and Podolski after that but sensing a missed opportunity here with Fletcher playing West Ham and Wigan for those two gameweeks.

                                                                                                                                    I'd fancy a Luiz/Cole transfer...I'd be wary of Azpi if Terry is back

                                                                                                                                        Just need to decide on who - tonight will help in that respect, hopefully.

Think I'll change Turnbull -> Bunn so maybe a reading defender might be a thought. They seem to have tightened up at the back, maybe Mariappa.
