Rumours that Nuno is considering selling Doherty (again) . He could fit in well in a 4-4-2 and wouldn't break the bank.

Agree0 Disagree0

No he can't play in a 442. Do you not remember when Zenga and Lambert were at the club and Doherty looked inept as a RB.

30 Jul 2021 14:17:29
Doherty looked inept at RB for Spurs.

30 Jul 2021 15:11:27
Was Doherty inept in a back four when we knocked Liverpool out of the FA Cup in January 2017 in a back four consisting of Stearman Hause Coady and Doherty?

30 Jul 2021 15:39:53
At Anfield.

30 Jul 2021 16:06:56
Did he have an outstanding game on that day? I remember the whole team playing well but it's not like we played the strongest Liverpool team. Mind you, Coady also had a good game at RB, maybe we should play him there more often.

Doherty is an average RB/ LB but a better WB. Unfortunately Lage plays 442.

30 Jul 2021 16:35:50
Make your mind up Jas. Is Doherty inept or average?
Who would you play out of our current squad at RB?

30 Jul 2021 17:02:36

If the squad was as it is now including injuries, my team to face Leicester would be:

GK: Sa
RB: Semedo
LB: Ait-Nouri
CB: Mosquera
CB: Saiss
CDM: Coady
CM: Neves
AMF/ No 10: Silva
RW: Trincao
LW: Adama
CF: Jimenez

Subs: Ruddy, MGW, Marcal, Hoever, Moutinho, Podence, Dendoncker.

E. We severely embarrassed a depleted Liverpool side at Anfield in the FA Cup. Great, but so what? Happens all the time, PL teams field weakened sides against lower-league cup opposition! By your thinking, we should be re-signing Stearman. He scored that day. Costa played a blinder. Bring him back too? Fact is, Doc is a far better WB than RB.

30 Jul 2021 17:27:28
Doherty is in the past, he was quick enough to run off for the coin. We move forward.

30 Jul 2021 19:35:08
That’s some team Jas but none of your starting eleven have scored a goal so far in pre-season and who is going to take the free kicks and corners?

30 Jul 2021 19:53:33
E from Wombourne, you really have to put a negative spin on everything don't you.

But to answer your question about Free kicks and corners - Trincao to take the free kicks and corners with Neves to take the direct free kicks.

I might pre-empt your next question. Jose Sa to stand between the posts and try to stop the penalties.

@Italia Wolf - Doherty didn’t jump, he was pushed.

31 Jul 2021 07:44:05
That team won't be the team that starts at Leicester.
I reckon they will sign a few before then.
Im not comfortable playing 4 at the back I don't think we have the cbs nor the midfielders to play that system.
I can see he is playing with 4 in preseason. But I reckon it will be 343 attacking 523 when defending. As we still haven't added Coady or Traore to the team yet.
I think the change to 442 will be gradual when signings are made between now and September.

31 Jul 2021 10:39:14
Why would Lage play 442 all pre season and then revert back to a back 3 or back 5 against Leicester?
Doesn't that defeat the purpose of pre season?

31 Jul 2021 14:58:09
It does Jas that's true but Coady hasn't been available so far and surely if Lage is open minded he will start by playing the optimum system for the players he has available and try to evolve the playing style as the season progresses. I'll make a judgement after the Celta Viga game as probably the Leicester line up will start that game however at some point this season I feel we will need to revert to a back 5 if things go pear shaped. Although I hope not it may be earlier than we think.

31 Jul 2021 20:39:09
343 today cheers Jas. 😂.

31 Jul 2021 21:18:00
And according to some on here who watched the game, we were poor. I can't comment because I didn't watch it.

31 Jul 2021 21:53:21
I watched the game and I didn’t think we were poor, we played a lot of rapid one touch and looked comfortable most of the time something that became less and less as time went on under Nuno. Yes we do have defensive aerial problems I hope that will be sorted, we all know that so Bruno certainly knows. Look forward with confidence, we’re all on the same side don’t be negative.

Otasowie? Didn’t feature in Las Palmas game and missing from Stoke game squad. Injured or what?

01 Aug 2021 10:19:45
Not injure we are swapping him for docherty.

01 Aug 2021 12:38:08
I have watched all our pre season games and we still do not carry any threat from our midfield when on the attack, I am still not convinced that this squad of players will keep us in the Prem.

01 Aug 2021 21:59:32
Jas mate its the best system with our squad.
If you play Coady you have to play 3 at the back. He isn't quick enough to play in a 4.
Arguably Donk and Saiss are the best cbs at the club. They play for there countries there and I would say are better suited to 4 at the back.
Id love to see us transition smoothly from a 442 433 and 343 to 541 to close out games.
Bruno get the players that can transition smoothly. Sort the defence, strengthen midfield with a box to box midfielder and creative midfielder. And sell Cutrone and Mir for Carlos Vinicius and Leao.
