The core to any Skaven team is getting 3 Gutter Runners, 2 Blitzers and 3 re-rolls - what you fill the rest with is largely a matter of personal preference. Deviate from this recommendation at your own risk.
Not every coach believes that the Rat Ogre is a desirable positional in a new or developed Skaven team, whether it's really worth that much in added TV. Likewise many coaches believe a Thrower is really only ever better at moving the ball forward than a gutter runner if he rolls a +AG.
Despite rats' tendency to fall apart in a stiff breeze, unless you're playing in a League or Tournament don't worry too much about taking an apo or spare players. The risk of losing a positional before you can scrape up 50k for an apo isn't that great, and in any open play setting* you can always re-roll the team in a worst case scenario. Go for quality positionals or more RR's if you can.
(* i.e. in Blackbox, in Ranked outside of tourneys, and in League outside of an actual active league, anywhere you can retire the team and just start over if the first couple/few games go horribly wrong.)
All 4 GR's.
Good for entering tough leagues or tourneys where early casualties can be expected.
Either you get 2 throwers, or 1 thrower and 20k in the bank towards a fast apo.
Getting the ROgre early increases the chances of getting MVP on him, and having a St 5 is not a bad thing.
Sacrifices a RR for the apo. With only 2 RR's (and the no-skill Frenzy ROgre), conservative play is well advised - not recommended for new coaches.
