Blackburn fans are not happy at all with Mowbray at the moment. They are coming off the back of a bad result to Doncaster in the cup on Saturday, and they are still without a number of key defenders meaning Bradley Jonson is having to play as an emergency centre back.
It’s a shame we are so poor in an attacking sense because for all of their quality up front, they are definitely there to be got at defensively.
If no new LB I would go with Clucas to keep a back 4, if we do have a new LB Clucas instead of Verlinden and switch Matondo to the right. Powell as the focal point upfront is definitely the way to go until Fletcher is available.
Oh yeh just saying it’s what I’d like to see, I’d also like Verlinden but thinking about defensive situations and stuck Clucas in. Clucas has been poor as a holding midfielder, much more effective further forward
How on earth will Verlinden start, when he couldn't even get on Saturday?!!.
I don't think he will, but the presence of Matondi, rather than being a rival for the same spot, could signal two near identical wide players either side of our goalscoring sensation, who will benefit enourmously from their service.
But knowing MON, McClean will be the first name he pencils in on the team sheet, with Matondi eventually added to the other side. Which means he will be our main threat.
