Away at Horwich Wanderers next Sat, we'll have to do much better than today if we're to get anything from this game as they've looked much better under Lennon.

Ikeme

Iorfa Batth Stearman Golbourne

McDonald Price

van La Parra Edwards Henry

Dicko​

Anyone going to this?
 
We're more likely to win simply because we won't have to take the initiative. So by being more solid we can knick one and win 1-0
 
Hoping for a Guinea win on Wednesday in which case Sako will be back. If not somebody else on the left, Henry has been awful in the last 2 games.
 
If Henry has been so bad why not play Jacobs on the left? He's done it a lot more than Henry in his career and should be able to link with Golbourne.
 
Based on today I think I've got as much chance of playing as Jacobs
 
More chance of me walking on water.
 
If we sign Lingard.......


Ikeme
Iorfa, Batth, Stears, Golbourne
Price, KMac
RVLP, Edwards, Lingard
Dicko

Subs
Kuz, Hause, EEL, Afobe, Henry, Doc, Clarke
 
I hope Kenny can find a forward thinking system that enables Afobe and Dicko in the team at the same time without going to 4-4-2. Something that defends in a 4-5-1 but breaks into a 4-3-3 with the ball.

Kuszack, Hause, Doherty, Ebanks-Landell, Edwards, Henry, Clarke (ugh why)

Batth seems to be getting a bit of stick on twitter, but I haven't seen much on here. Maybe Hause at CB? Unlikely I guess.
 
I take it Eusebio isn't fit? Else you could have him on the right and Vlp on the left. Alternatively you could have hunte on the left. Definately don't want Edwards there.
 
i think KJ has a blind spot regarding Dave Edwards - probably plays like Ronaldo in training

Stick for what exactly? 2 Clean sheets in his last 2 games.
 
For having awful distribution which is apparently getting worse...I haven't seen anything more than extended highlights of the last few games so I cant comment further than reporting what twitter says...
 
So people are expecting Danny Batth to be a playmaker now? His distribution is simple really. A pass on he will go for it, if not he will just get rid.

He's carelessly giving away possession more often than not at the moment. A definite decline.
 
I would say Batth is head and shoulders above how he was performing back in October/November.
 
That doesn't belie my point though.

I don't think he is. He's been fine for the whole of December and January. He was in bad form for a few weeks before that and had the handicap of having a RB outside him who has similar issues in not being able to turn and that left a whole channel vulnerable to any kind of pace or direct threat (hence us conceding tons of goals down that side). That has now been fixed.

I don't see his distribution as a major issue at all, that seems a very odd complaint to me. He is never going to be a Vertonghen style 'footballer first, defender second' player, for what he is within obvious limitations he is fine in that respect and good at actual defending. What he gets paid for. Fuck idiots on Twitter.
