Not really well versed in formations but I'm somewhat clear on the players I'd like to select. Please comment so I can learn from you as well.
GK - Right now, I'd go with Roland Muller. 3 CB - I'd like to use all tthree of Rob Gier, Juani Guirado and Alvaro Silva. Silva appears like he can play sweeper and looks capable of starting the offense. LB - Daisuke Sato, plus give him more liberty to move forward and attack. His kick has evident power and I believe he can deliver accurate crosses. I think if this guy is given the chance he could actually do damage in the midfield. RB - not sure who, not totally sold on Rota. But I guess he's better than Anton del Rosario. DM/CM - Chris Greatwhich, aside from being good defensively and being an organizing leader on the pitch, I'd put him on the team because he has historically been an x-factor for the Philippines, a game changer. I'll pick him over de Jong. CAM - as playmaker, I'd put Schrock here hands down. He provides great through balls and has a great feel for the game. plus he's got great ball control and can work his way around defenders. He's probably one of the few impact players and difference makers on the team. LM - Iain Ramsay, looks great on the left in attack RM - not sure who to put here though Riechelt can fill in, no one pops out in my mind though... ST - Javier Patino, great track record and reliable on the finish. I think he has a better work rate than Phil. It just seems to me that Phil gives up too easily on plays.
A 5-3-1-1 perhaps?
The window for such a line up is closing as some of these guys are in their 30's. Hope it gets a chance though.
Share your thoughts, line ups, formations please. Let's have fun. Who knows we may get our wish one day.

BoyBacolod: As long as Ricky Yanson is professional to Ceres FC and extends support to the Azkals in general (Ceres Azkals in particular) during home games, he can be PFF president in my book. Much better will be reconciling with Leo, though that idea is Farfetch'd.

BoyBacolod: Kaya fans wishing that Ricky Yanson wins the PFF presidency is akin to GMA fans wishing that Congress and President Duterte will not renew ABS-CBN's franchise.

BoyBacolod: We will wait for the basketball and volleyball ASEAN teams and then we compare their reception to that given to the football delegations, where ALL ASEAN nations participate. Now there will be foreign scrutiny in every move of PHISGOC.

BoyBacolod: DDS trolls underestimated the SEA football community. Having no prior exposure to football culture, they dismiss any and all so-called sabotages as destabilization plots, to the point that they do not support the teams, especially the women.
