What roles should I have for my Reading Team.

Ok so I have now decided that I want to play two ways, 4-4-2 at home and 4-1-4-1 away. I'm not the best at this game, never have been, but I've got a good thing going here so I want to improve my tactics a little.

I need to know what roles I should give to my specific players to get the best out of them.

For 4-4-2 & 4-1-4-1 I usually play deepish, narrowish, slow tempo with short passing on. My players are as follows:

GK - Federici
GK - Mikel Anderson

LB - Van Aanholt
LB - Michael Ball
LB - Marcus Williams

CB - Leonel Galeano (sp)
CB - Alex Pearce
CB - Olegeur

RB - Stuart Parnaby

DMC/MC - Mehdri Lacen (sp)
DMC/MC - Matieu Berson (sp)

MC - Jem Karacan
MC - Ross Jenkins

RW - Jimmy Kebe
RW - Jobi McAnuff
RW/ST - Abdul Bell-Baggie

LW - Juan Pablo Caffa
LW/RW/ST - Simeone Guerra (sp)

AMC - Gael Kakuta
AMC - Brian Howard

ST - Simon Church
ST - Eidur Gudjohnson
ST - Jonathan Obita

Can anyone help on these?
