Somehow I don't fancy this team's chances with Javi Garcia as the sole legitimate midfielder.

The main criteria for getting into Garth Crooks' team of the week appears to be scoring a goal (in fact eight of the players on this team scored at the weekend), that and not shaking someone's hand or making a last ditch heroic goal line clearance.

I know this isn't a real team that's actually going to play a game together but Crooks appears to be either completely ignorant of where players actually played at the weekend or else he just does not care about a proper tactical formation.

Gervinho in midfield? Jermaine Defoe in the hole? Does this man even watch football anymore?
