Had some unfair stick this season I feel. 

 

Quality today against some tough opposition.

Think it helps that Hector and Pudil seem very comfortable playing in a back 3 with him. maybe the way forward.

Hector brilliant at that central role.

And just think how many partners has he had so far this season?

 

Van Aken

Pudil

Thorniley 

Hector

 

Plus playing in a back 3 and a back 4 with a different right back next to him every game too. 

 

He’s a top quality championship defender.

Unsung hero, outstanding centre back at this level. Part of our record equaling and beating defence in the last few years.

This seemed to be the difference today. Second half Hector was playing further forwards in a sort of deep holding role and gave the kind of protection Hutch used to give a couple of seasons back.

Hopefully playing with hector alongside him it will bring out his best again had a tough time but he’s had kids around him 

Absolutely this.

Lees is twice the player when he’s got an experienced head beside him. His best form was always alongside Loovens and Pudil.

Maybe Hector can be that partner he’s needed and that’s in no way any disrespect to Thorniley

Think we will see a lot of that back 3 going forward and especially the deep holding role you mentioned that Hector played at times. but thats more of him stepping forward out the back 3. won't be playing him there in a 4-4-2 for example.

Hector perfect for the three. May see Lees / Thorniley if it is a two. To me Jos seems like a man coming up with a lot of plans for lots of different situations.

 

Let's just hope none involve him employing Bannan and Onomah in deep holding positions away from home again.

lol

Joking apart if you have too many plans and try and be too flexible ,especially if you are doing it because of the way the opposition play then a Forest type performance is always possible.

 

Players need to be comfortable and confident in the roles they are asked to do and if you keep asking them to do different things a disaster is always possible.

 

I would like to think after today we will never see  Reach play again in that stupid position he played at Forest but I wouldn’t bet on it.

PLayed along side some experience (and in a three) and he looked a lot better. Would still give the captaincy to Bannan and Let Lees just concentrate on being a good defender.

Hector had a steady full debut but his experience shone and this allowed Lees to feel more confident which really showed. Thorniley for me is the natural successor to Pudil on the left if we go back to three CBs
