Yeah I like that a little better.
Reckon that's pretty kind to the Scouse Cafu, as legendary as he is.
Aside from that, can't really argue. The 4-3-3 looks better and suits Hendo/Wilshere better but Sturridge not really a wide-man anymore. I think I'd sooner put Rooney out there.
I'd definitely give Sterling a bench spot over basically any of your backup midfield options.

Yeah, wouldn't fancy Henderson there at all.
Oxlade-Chamblerlain a better option surely.
Sterling gets in the squad for sure, for me
Yeah, no Feo means an obviously squad spot for Sterling.
Townsend is an odd one. Looked the part in the autumn, but hardly getting a gig for yer Spurts now.
& whatever chance Morrison had has surely gone with him to 'Arry's mob in west London.
Knock is he was frozen out because he refused to sign up with BFS's preferred agent.

Adam Johnson is pretty much a certainty with no width in the squad I reckon.
Do I contradict myself?
Very well then I contradict myself,
(I am large, I contain multitudes.
Yeah, have no idea how I've omitted Sterling from my 23. Would come in at the expense of Welbeck/Rodriguez in the 23 I've named.
I'm surprised given the rate that you guys go through midfielders that Mark Noble has never got a cap or talked about as a possibility of making the squad.
He's always a rock for the Hammers and puts in good performance after good performance. Wouldn't be a bad backup for Gerrard?
I'm a fan of Noble, and have been for years. Think he's a neat progressive footballer, who can keep possession without just going backwards or sideways. He's pretty similar to that other West Ham graduate Carrick. Think he's the type of player who if he was in a bigger side would get a lot more plaudits. He really should be ahead of the likes of Milner and Cleverly for selection IMHO.
but all of a sudden we have a bunch of younger midfielders coming through, who you feel have a bit more talent and scope to improve than Mark.
I wouldn't be displeased if he got a look-in, but I don't see it, and perhaps for the future of the side it's better if he doesn't.
Yeah he would always have been a bit left-field but I don't remember anyone even suggesting it, which is really surprising. Playing for a Fat Sam team really counts against him.
Stupidly LFC-centric, but there you go. Gibbs, Shaw, Carrick, Wilshere, The Ox, Barkley and Lallana would all have to be close.Code:Hart Flanagan Jagielka Cahill Baines Gerrard Henderson Sterling Rooney Rodriguez Sturridge

Johnson and Lambert too. Maybe Zaha now that he'll be getting regular playing time.
