    You have no left winger though.
    Henry fine in middle if you had a Pires-type winger on left. But you have both PUSKAS, HENRY and TOTTI. Henry needs to play that left forward role.

    Isn't it actually perfect though if when Henry drifts wide, Puskas cuts inside to score goals, and Nilton Santos pushes forward to be the threat out wide (sort of like a Dani Alves)? Totti can play just like Bergkamp, so what's the problem? The playmaking winger is Finney, who can assist the others with his dribbling and crossing.

    I always felt Henry’s best starting position was attacking between the opponent’s right back and centreback. It was all about space and that curved outside run, moving in behind and cutting in on his curling right footed finish (not between the two CB’s). His connection and wingplay with Pires/Cole on the left flank was the best we’ve seen in the Prem too.
    And Puskás I regard as GOAT-level in the forward/false #9 position (who would be the Bergkamp in this partnership). Puskás’ starting position would be closer to the centrebacks/halfback than the ‘fullbacks’.

    I think having Totti in there too, and no natural left winger forces you to play Henry on the left (doesn’t mean he plays as a left winger though).

    Like you say, Henry would be dovetailing with Nílton Santos, and interchanging with Puskás.

    That front four would interchange so much it'd be impossible to man mark. Its almost pointless trying to put them into a starting formation (although we have to in draft teams).

    Lets say post teams by midnight on Wednesday night, then voting open until midnight on Friday night. I'll then do the results on Saturday morning.

    I won't be able to get this done before 16:30 today. If that's too long then just continue without me

    You have another free slot remaining so you can pick from any league.

    You do realise though that you'd be using 27 games in the Uruguayan league for Suarez? :laugh:

    No problem, you have until midnight but i'd imagine most people won't vote til morning. Deadline for votes is midnight on Friday.
