Team for Preston

Recommended Posts

My biggest worry is that Farke will not play either Godfrey or Thompson but will persevere with Tettey and Trybul. The Preston game is an opportunity to put out a youthful and attacking side and give the opposition something to worry about. At present a midfield trio of Tettey, Trybul and Leitner will get bypassed every time by the opposition when they push forward with any pace.

Where is Stiepermann''s most effective position? Can he be ''pigeon-holed'' or is his left-sided versatility his greatest asset? I think he''ll be starting plenty of games this season.

I am now erring towards Godfrey ahead of Thompson tonight, as Tetteys replacement.

This would give us more strength in the air - to face their preference to play with a barrage of crosses, 27 per game is more than any team. Out back post will be targeted.

While I wouldnt want Steipermann starting instead of Trybull or Lewis, he does bring extra aerial power to the second worst team on headers in the league (Hull being the worst)

Most of their goals have come from set pieces , so I am bothered...

I would play Godfrey too , because of his aerial power and I would refer to the three at the back...that worked well last season...

4-2-3-1. Disappointed that Thompson or Godfrey don''t start. Still think that''s too lightweight in midfield, so we have to hope we have a rare 90mins of concentration in defence!

Would be happier to see Godfrey or Thompson in for Tettey if we aren''t going for a back three.

But happy to see Marshall in a position we he can use his decent crossing skills.

Probably show in training they have more to offer than the existing players?

Doesn''t what you do in a game count more?

Not quite sure I understand the plan on the right- Marshall is seemingly being asked to tuck in and let Pinto provide the width.

Tettey is rubbish. Can’t believe Thompson isn’t playing.

Two mistakes in his own half already.

Why is Marshall taking inswingers that Rudd catches easy?

Bielsa subbed a Leeds midfielder off in the first half last night for giving away the ball. Tettey has done it numerous times....he needs to go off

All a bit turgid isn''t it- Rhodes completely isolated.

I''m sure someone will be along soon to tell us this is a masterplan to tire out Preston though.

Too little happening in our midfield for me. At least Tetty is looking for the ball; shame he''s our least skilled midfielder. Surprised he''s playing again today with his lack of pre-season. I think it is time to see what Godfrey or Thompson can do.

I wouldn’t say he’s looking for it. More like standing in space being afforded to him. He can’t take the ball in tight areas or further forward without a bad touch or giving it away.

It’s time for him to be a bit part player and no more. We need an injection of strength and mobility, someone who can play the ball confidently forward in that position

Going back a couple of months I thought that the general view on here was that it was great that he signed another years contract because we couldn''t do without him?
If he''s the best we have then God help us.
