Stoke - Luongo or Hutchinson?

Luongo, you don’t necessarily have to have a defensive midfielder in the championship if you have two hard working players in that area of the pitch. As we showed at Forest last weekend 


This ^  Luongo and Bannan should have enough quality and energy to cope with stoke

Luongo, as in the two matches he's played we haven't conceded any goals and he is more likely to score than Hutch.

He is also less likely to pick up  a yellow card, five more for Hutch and that's another three matches he misses.

Hutchinson

Just a much better player

Luongo for me, offers more in the final third.

 

That said games are coming thick a fast so rotation will come into play.

With Luongo and Bannan in centre mid and Palmer covering Fox's concussion at left back, is there a case for Hutch at RB? He's played there before on occasions.

Luongo offers abit more of a threat, he allows bannan to open up more and pull strings, when hutch plays we are good but bannan is quiet. Both of these players are needed for different games but I prefer luongo


Agree. However, away from home when you’d expect the opposition to be on you more, would a more defensive midfielder be a safer bet?

Ironically, Hutch’s suspensions help him recover.

Only change at Stoke, if poss, is Fletch back in. Same back 4 that finished yesterday. 


Hmmmm not sure about the back 4. Personally I really don’t want to lose Iorfa at CB. He’s been immense there. Now if Fox is out that would mean Odebajo at RB which obvs many fans will have a hissy fit about. But that’s what I’d go with.

I haven't heard Luongo as specialist commentator on ifollow so can't really give an honest opinion. When I have heard Hutch doing his bit he has been very good and informative. Perhaps when/If Luongo gets to 5 and 10 yellows I will be able to pass an opinion. Until then I'm afraid I will have to pass on this one.

Hope that helps

So, I'm a central midfielder playing for Stoke. I can get kicked all over the pitch by Hutch, or play nicey nicey football with Luongo.

 

Have any of you actually played the game?

Luongo likes a tackle.

Not sure about this suggestion (a bit off piste) but  what about iorfa, lees, boner and hutch as a back four or a 3 /1 ...? Hutch started as CB at chelsea but never seen as much action at swfc.. But absolute Mint on the sporadic occasions whenever ive seen him playing there... Time and composure, can play and pick a long accurate  ball out..... Beckenbuear esk stylie!

For me Hutch is the first name on the team sheet !!!

 

That said you don’t change a winning team so Luongo and Bannan for Stoke. If Fox is injured Palmer at LB and Odubajo RB.

Monk changed the position of all the back four on Sunday rather than put Odubajo on.

Don’t see him picking him, effectively instead of Börner.

Horses for courses . Games coke thick and fast so everyone will get time. I really rate luongo , even more so if fletcher isn’t back as we need all the goal scoring help we can get

Are stoke still a tall team (player wise).

 

If so I am fully expecting the back four that finished the last match.

 

And we will see the return of Hutchinson. Not going to want two player under 5"9 in the centre of midfield.
