Very difficult to name a team and system as we are still a bit unbalanced.

 

With the 3-4-3, Id go with;

 

Westwood

 

Lees

Hutch

Pudil

 

Hunt

Lee

Bannan

Reach

 

Joao

Hooper

FF

 

Still powder puff in the middle of the park - great footballers but lightweight.

surprised anyone is  picking van aken........from what ive seen hutch, pudil & thorniley have far less mistakes in them .what do people see in him that they think he's the one for a spot ?

The key to making this current formation work is the quality of the two wing backs and the holding midfielder. We will score a hell of a lot of goals next season with a front 2 and FF and Bannan playing in behind

What i would like to see us try is this...

 

                       Westwood

               Vanacio - Lees - V Aken

   Hunt                                                Reach

                      Lee - Bannan

       Matias                                 Fessi

                     Hooper/Nuihu

 

With Matias and Fessi being used as wider forwards  but also able to provide width and cover defensively out wide when needed. We were far too open down the flanks last year due to us playing 3 men centrally in the midfield. When one our midfielders then did chase down the opposition into these wide areas, we just left massive holes in the middle instead.

Has to be his ability on the ball one would assume. Maybe his Bannan style Hollywood balls. :ph34r:

 

However Pudil just as capable at coming out of defence with the ball in my opinion and more steady at the back.

That said there is definite potential there so let's let Jos work with him for a bit see what he can get out of him. Turned Nuhiu into one of the best strikers in the divison on current form. so you never know.

Bannan is the best midfielder at the club.

I think both are equally as good but Lee’s goals for me makes him the more valuable to us. All about opinions.

If we bought nobody and everyone was fit:-

 

Westwood - best we have. Easy.

 

Hutch Lees Pudil - Hutch is better than Fred and Pudil is better than JVA from all current evidence. 

 

Hunt Lee Bannan Reach - Lee and Bannan are our best central pairing by a country mile. The choice of wing-backs is easy.

 

Joao Nuhiu FF - Here I’m leaving my favourite Hooper on the bench. I expect Hooper to force his way in and keep his place as the season develops, but only a fool would split up the Joao-Nuhiu-FF starting trio based on their late season success. 

 

Very strong side. An investment here and there and I would be very confident. A stronger CB especially would be ideal.

Based on what we’ve got in the building now. 

 

                         Westwood 

        Hutchinson   Lees    Pudil  

 Hunt            Lee           Bannan    Reach

                         Forestieri 

                  Hooper        Joao 

 

Maybe Van aken for Pudil 

and maybe Pelupessy for Lee 

depending on how they improve over the summer getting more used to English football etc. 

Nuhiu and Hooper to battle for partnering Joao

 

Agree with this, although Nuhiu did very well I think some may forget how good Hooper is when fully fit

Hooper is good but Nuhiu is a must start for me. Skilful, strong, improved aerially, good fitness record and now scoring goals. Also brings out the best in Joao. Those two along with FF have proved to be our best attacking lineup for ages.

Its fashionable to be able to ping the ball 40 yards.

We still need one regardless of if reach plays there or not imo.

 

Then the question would be if reach is at wing back who plays in the middle?

 

Bannan & Joey

           Hooper.                                 Foresteri

                                Dave

This would be my preferred starting XI if the season started tomorrow and all players were fit. Perhaps a controversial opinion (I've yet to read the whole thread and the general responses to this team), but I genuinely would expect the above team to be flirting with the playoffs, providing that team could start 35ish games in a season. Yes you could argue that it perhaps lacks a couple of "stars", with only about 4 of those with a reputation as top-end Championship players, but what it does offer is a lot of energy in a balanced and complementary setup... something that in the last couple of years has been shown to be more important in this league than anything else. 3CB's + energy = difficult to beat, and players with the forward propensity and workrate of Lee and Reach would mean a strong second phase of attack. 

 

IMO this all but proves we've already got a squad that could finish around the end of the table we want to finish in this particular setup... so any recruitment this summer should be aimed towards fielding an equally good side in a 4-2-3-1 shape (or whatever, I'm saying this as it's what Jos traditionally plays) than those players, along with others in the existing setup. Then they can plug the gaps in a 5-3-2. If we can add 2/3 players that help with the above, and can shift 3/4 of those currently contracted on... I think we'll have had a ruddy good summer

                    Dawson

         Lees   Venancio   Van Aken

Hunt   Lee   Pelupessy   Bannan   Reach

                    Forestieri

                      Hooper

 

Just because I think Westwood will go and we will re-sign Venancio. Other positions ‘may’ be updated during the Summer.

 

Given the chance in a back three I think Van Aken will flourish.

Because I think Pudil did better than Fred, and he is left footed.

 

I think Fred is the 4th best CB we have...

 

Lees

Hutch

Pudil

Fred

JVA

 

Happy with any of the first 4. Bit worried JVA is not very good, but still early days
