Would love to see Marcelo change it up and go 2 up top (442) for Derby, he'll probs stick with same team.
Would love to see back 4 of Dallas, White, Coops, Douglas
Costa, Kliche, Phillips, Pablo
Bamford and Eddie up top.
Would mean sacrificing Forshaw and the unlucky Shacks for this formation but they would make up a super bench along with
Messlier, Ayling, Roberts, Alioski and Harrison, it would mean in possession we'd be more 424 and really get at teams at home and have a feeling Bamford could be the foil for Eddie to do his tap in stuff! But hey mb gets paid more than me to pick the side lol
Looking forward to the game all the same! MOT brothers 😎.

That would be my formation and team except I'd bench the Magician right now in favour of Shacks. Shacks will be his usual effervescent self for 45 minutes then you hook him for Pablo second half as he'll be tired and Pablo can do his thing.

Phillips really needs to be the DM to get anything out of him so I don't think it would work with him being part of a flat centre mid - maybe more of a 'diamond' formation would be best with Phillips at the back and Klich at the top. I agree with George to bench Pablo first half and let him work his magic in the 2nd half against tireder legs. Harrison on the left as I don't think shacks would be as effective there.

Forshaw may still be injured anyway which solves that selection problem.

i love the idea of bamford and eddie playing together but would worry about kilch and phillips getting over run, for me a 442 would need shacks and forwshaw to be strong and mobile enough but can't see that happening. i also can't see mb changing too much, which to be fair we are winning so even i can't complain. too much.

Berm Our midfield best in the league. KP talk of him playing for England, Klich is a Polish international, Costa is top drawer and Shacks is a bundle of energy for a half with an evergreen Spaniard to replace him at half-time. I'm unconcerned by the midfield of other teams at this level. If you're talking about who is more scared, think you'll find opposition defenders more scared of Paddy and Eddie than we are of their midfield. At home we should be bossing it. Time to do that is now. Eddie is a 🥅 machine. Best deployed from the start at home, not from bench.

opinions George. opinions

I love klich and think he has undoubted quality but let's be honest he can also completly unaffect games and his form lately has dipped

of course i don't rate KP but even his biggest fans admit he can't run, tackle or do 'that part of the game' so i would worry them to as a centre midfield paring would get over run

i think other teams would find that pair, leightweight and easy to carve open, bit like Barnsely did. that pairing offers no protection to a weak back four. We would keep the ball a lot limiting chances for other teams but if barnsely can have 17 chances with only 33% of the ball how many chances would derby have with that midfeild?

any four four two would 100% need forwshaw and I would pair him with shacks but if not klich, kp could never play 4-4-2 it would kill his good points and hilight his bad. i almost hope it happens to see if he can prove me wrong but i think even his biggest fans would agree that would not be a good move for him

costa - forshaw- shacks- pablo however might be deadly and stable.

I agree Bermo! Phillips best position is where he plays now in the system we play now. Disagree about Klich though. Ok he’s not getting the goals he got last season but he has great movement off the ball and always looks to play forward and an eye for a pass. It’s all about opinions.

17 Sep 2019 20:19:18
All forgetting if we do go 4-4-2 the wing backs won't generally be as far forward so KP won't need to be as deep to provide cover for them.

17 Sep 2019 20:54:51
Canada I'm not forgetting.

17 Sep 2019 22:31:45
True George but some may be.
I'm all for it as well, particularly at home.

18 Sep 2019 09:10:19
Nor me Canada! Like i said in possession! Being the operative word! wed swamp teams defenses being more 424, although berms CM defensive alternative of forshaw and Shacks would also work! But don't think Bielsa would drop kp or kliche unless they were having a stinker! good competition for places at the mo have to say! On a side note how ridiculously nonchalantly cool was Kliches pen has to take the next one after that!

“Even his biggest fans admit he can’t run or tackle”. 😳🤔🧐
