Marcelo and Coentrao are two best young LB's in the world. Coentrao is too damn good to be benched.

should we rotate them?

No I think one of them should be given the permanent starting spot. You know who I want to start. Afro

No... Coentrao was bought as an utility player and he knew that. He even highlighted his own ability to play in different position during the negotiation period. It wouldn't be fair to Marcelo to start som kind of rotation policy inbetween them. Also, I consider him to be better.

Marcelo should start when fit and not in need of rest.

Coentrao will get time as a LB, CM and even LW.

its marcelos spot without a doubt and mou has already made it clear that coentrao wont be taking it.

i also dont want coentrao to take it, he said that he will play anywhere just to play for madrid, and thats why we signed him.

I think Coentrao should work hard on getting a decent right foot, just like a certain Argentinian player, and take over at RB. As much as I like robocop... Coentrao would bring a whole new dimension to the right if he adapted.

I like Blondie but I have no idea why we signed him really.

I mean if he's happy being a utility player then I guess that's OK but something tells me he came here thinking his Portuguese mates would let him start every game.

He isn't better than Marcelo, he isn't better than any of our main midfielders and he isn't better than any of our wingers.

Even at RB Godbeloa would give him tough competition so it's not clear cut.

As I said earlier in a different thread, Mourinho signed him for many reasons, not least is the fact signing him means the Cules can't get their hands on one of the best young left back in the game at the moment, since Abidal is getting old. He's also versatile and is Portuguese Very Happy

"If we can't have him no one can" isn't a good transfer policy IMO.

Anyway Blondie isn't lazy so I'm OK with him.

The last thing Marcelo's development needs is a rotation policy. Offering Coentrao games at left back is sensible to ensure each member of the squad is well rested, and to put pressure upon Marcelo to continue to perform given these games will give Coentrao a chance to show what he is made of at the same time.

However being forced to consistently perform and concentrate will improve Marcelo and if Madrid are to begin to alter the centre-back partnership, the last thing the team needs is an extra disruption to team chemistry, especially with such a tight league race building.

Being too good for the bench may work as an average but not for a team trying to win everything, though it's still a bizarre transfer. If you tire of him, do pass him over like the nice chaps you are though :coffee:

Why not playing with Coentrao as a LW and CR as a RW for some games during Di Maira injury. A lot of options are offered to Jose.

no. tbh it would not be fair to marcelo who has defintely won his spot over the psat few years. it would be like benching ramos for arbeloa.

if they are fit they should both be playing, now trying marcelo on the right- thats a completely different thing.

Since Coentrao's already here anyway I don't see why he shouldn't get a shot to earn rotation minutes at his best position (LB). Kaka got that shot, Ozil & Di Maria was rotated to accommodate him, Khedira will be as well to accommodate Sahin. So are Benzema & Higuain. Why is it any different for Coentrao & Marcelo. Coentrao deserves more than just waiting for injury to happen to see minutes in random positions, not good for his development either.

I am against rotating our backline.
Sure the attack is different but the fortress at the back should remain untouched or with minimal changes.

I'd rather have Marcelo on the right wing and Ronaldo on the left, they can both cut in and can switch sides during play.

Casillas
Arbeloa - Pepe - Ramos - Coentrao
Khedira - Alonso
Marcelo - Ozil - Ronaldo
Benzema

No Marcelo is miles better than Coentrao and this isn't similair to Higgy and Benz since they both offer something different and they both are good but Marcelo is twice the better player and only thing Coentrao offers is defense while Marcelo can offer a new dimension to our game. (although Coentrao does give more width, if that's ever needed)

He isn't WC and he isn't as good as some say he is. I think he is overhyped and average, just my opinion.

Overhyped is agreeable but average is an opinion that is quite wrong. He is not average, not in the slightest.
