As I picked that team I really struggled to think of someone to play in a certain position in the diamond and had to keep referring back to the Stoke squad on their website. It brings home how weak our squad is with Nathan's '2 for every position'
Both the 'untouchables' need dropping right now! Neither Butland nor Allen are anywhere near at it and it's having an awful knock on effect right through the side. Surely we have to go 442 on saturday or face being badly mauled. Otherwise Leeds will run riot!!
Can't disagree with that - would be tempted to go with Gregory over Hogan as Gregory is a much better link player, whereas Hogan would get isolated up top. Would put young Lasse on the bench too. Think at this stage we have to go back to basics, be compact, difficult to break down, play percentages and try and nick something off a set piece. When we have built that base then we can start to look at changing things up with bringing in a more attacking shape or a second striker
