I think they might have picked this site for the following reasons:
1. this site is known to be like a garbage dump because debris just keeps circling around in a current - so there will be plenty that could be spotted - no need to plant anything.
2. Deep enough to explain why the locator signal was not working
3. Far way from any shipping lanes
If you draw a circle around the area the plane could have flown, there's just this one area they could have made the plane disappear.
Normally moving clockwise, in the winter the Indian Ocean gyre reverses direction due to the South Asian Monsoon. Like the other gyres, it contains a garbage patch.
Robert Mark, a commercial pilot and editor of Aviation International News Safety magazine, said:“As time goes on things that seemed outlandish are becoming more plausible. The latest is the theory that MH370 shadowed a Singapore Airlines flight. The Israelis have done this before, shadowing a 747 with a fighter jet so that from the ground radar it looks like one aircraft. "We are going to find out ultimately that the people who took this aircraft were as good at planning as the people behind 9/11.”
Look away, far, far away... Israel and Iran is the hand you don't see. Russia and Ukraine on the hand you see.
This screen capture from flightradar24 shows MH370 just before it disappeared at altitude 35,000 and heading 25 degrees.
Coming in the opposite direction is a China Eastern Air flight MU539, an Airbus A320-214 at altitude 36,000 and heading 209 degrees. The crew of that plane should be interrogated! They were slightly above and nearby, they should have been able to see some navigation lights.

So, more turn east, south east, south, then south west? Or I'm still not following you proper?

Best theory I have heard, now why did it blow up?
Judydawg I only assume that the 2.4 Richter scale seismic event was an explosion in the air and i was not there so I can only conjecture, but the boom may have been from oxygen which had leaked into the avionics compartment being ignited by an electrical fire. It could have been that heat built in the avionics bay until a hose or a seal melted and released oxygen into the confined space until an explosion punch a hole through the fuselage somewhere.
There are literally scores of electrical fires in late model airliners in the past couple of decades. Generators overheat, malfunction, diodes burn out, insulation catches fire, all sorts of variations of a theme.
This map places the position of the seismic event:
