    Palmer & VanAken

    I will stick with what I’ve seen from my own eyes by watching games - Palmer, Fox, Van Aken and Pelupessy are not good enough for us. We need to minimise the amount of games that the above play. I particularly think Jordan Thorniley is ready for the first team. Don’t think we should play him left wing back. Whether he competes with Pudil for the left centre back position or we go to a back 4 and he can play conventional left back.

    Joey Pelupessy

    Jones is a much better footballer than Pelupessy. Jones has had a decent career and he knows how to play the role of a centre midfielder. I was watching the highlights of the Wednesday Vs Newcastle game at hillsborough when we won 2-1 at the end of last season. Jones was very good that day and controlled the game. You’d never see Joey do that. Im not saying im a Jones fan as I’m not and we shouldn’t have signed him in the first place but he’s a much better player than the hapless Joey.

    Fletch

    Fletcher’s all round game is generally very good. I do think hes a very good player for this level. Question marks are over his long term fitness and his finishing.

    Joey will not improve. I’ve seen him loads live and I’ve not seen him have 1 good game. He’s very limited and he’s a league 1 player at best.

    Thorniley

    He’s ready is Thorniley. Not sure on all the other young players but he is. Think we should get him in the team and persist with him. We shouldn’t play him left wing back as he’s a defender. I would consider changing the system and go to a back 4 and play him left back with a view to putting him in the centre next season.

    Thorniley

    I consider Thorniley a centre half. However, I would consider going to a back 4 and playing him left back for the season. I rate this lad and he won’t let us down. Don’t want to ruin him at left wing back whilst he did very well today. He will end up at centre half but sensible to start his career at left back.

    Back 3 sorted?

    Bring Jones in for Pelupessy as he’s woeful. However, I’d like to bring Thorniley through and he stands a better chance at conventional left back than wing back.

    Back 3 sorted?

    If we go with the back 3, id defo play Lees, Hutch and Pudil. But I’m inclined to go 4-3-3 and try and get the best out of FF which is key. I’ve absolutely no qualms about Thorniley playing left back for us all season. He’s the one young player that I would trust. I’d put Hutch in defensive midfield replacing the hapless Pelupessy.

    Fernando Forestieri

    Must be played in a front 3.

    Westwood is 3rd choice - Official

    Good job Jake Kean has gone as Westwood would’ve been 4th choice!

    Lucas Joao

    At least he’s injured. Could’ve been another lined up for loan with a permanent transfer given he’s out of contract at the end of the season.

    Joey Pelupessy

    If we are happy with Baker and Thorniley, would anyone consider going 4-3-3 and play Baker, Lees, Pudil and Thorniley in a back 4 and play Hutch in defensive midfield. Just a thought.

    Joey Pelupessy

    Jos’ golden boy and he wont drop him. Joey is nowhere near the level required. Very poor footballer.

    Thorniley

    Good news ! Didn’t go today but I was impressed with him last season. He looks a tank and he gets stuck in. Hes the one that I expect to come in and be a regular starter this season.
  15. We didn’t have a great deal of options today but I agree he’s defensive.
