Couple of quick games coming up, think we will beat wolves but worried about saints. I like watching saints play, feel they been unlucky with recent 9-0 and other losses but a decent side.
They getting their players back and press well and Ings is a fantastic striker, would love him at Leeds.
How would u boys line up for the wolves game, if KP not ready?
Think I'd prefer to slot struijk back into CB and play another as holding MF.
Spanish and other under 23 followers, who plays that role for 23's? Could they be up for it or too big a step, not sure if shacks or Dallas can play it.

Agree0 Disagree0

Mel, There's only one person who cannot see another DM is needed.

Not expecting any change. Rumour rod might be back but I doubt it.
Think he will start with same 11 and I fear similar outcome tbh.
Utter madness to have so many out of position for one position. Put struik at back. Why we need defensive midfielder anyway. Let’s go 1-4-5-1
Hope Phillips back though.
Two games we should be getting points from.

He won't change
but 3 4 3
Struik cooper ayling
Dallas klich shacks alioski
Raph bambam Harrison
Same 11 playing in positions there best in.

A number have been tried in that position in under 23s but no one close to be able to cover for KP. I think Pascal is the one that has been picked as the most likely to, but clearly a lot to learn. The prem he seems to be more cautious and look to go backwards. When I saw him in the under 23s he got the ball forward more and he does that when playing out from the back as a CB. Hopefully these things are being drilled in training. The trouble is we are short at DM and CB at the moment, so moving pasa al to one causes more problems in the other. Also creates a change in front of Meslier that can’t help! One for Bielsa to sort! I can see both sides, give Pascal a couple more games at DM and see if he can learn and change. But CB he is more comfortable and more naturally gives us height in both boxes!

if we have same line up but shacks in DM role we will do well, shacks doesn't have phillips range of passing but his work rate, speed, defensive cover and mobility is all far greater than phillips we will just have to adapt and work to shacks strengths which is the full backs can bomb forward even more and klich won't have to cover as much

striujk at CB is a must we are so much better when he plays there.

Leeds, not sure who your inferring that doesn't know we need another CDM?

Is it Bielsa, is it Orta is it Radz?

Or all of them?

Cos I just thought that those guys had already bought Spanish international Llorente AND German international Koch who have both played CDM at the top level.

Oh, wait, you want more. so once all fully fit we can pay players to kick their heels.

As far as I am concerned we have been unlucky and we just suck it up until we get our players back to fitness, a bit like Liverpool are having to do over Van Dyik and Citeh are doing with Aguero. Can't see their fans slagging the admin off for unfortunate injuries.

quite right axe

also agree with Spanish - biggest issue is lack of experience that Pascal has in DM but if we give him game time he will probably get better at it.

yes we may lose a few games but you can't make a pancake without breaking a few eggs

you're all saying we are safe now so why not use this system to help our players learn and get us stronger for the future?

And on that note Alf
Happy pancake day.
