Dasilva injury

Play Hunt there. Someone solid who can defend. Stick Eliasson in front of him and tell Hunt to just keep shape and pass Eliason the ball. Milner did this for Liverpool a couple of seasons ago. 

Sorry, who is this person you speak of?

Wishing Jay a swift and full recovery. Really bad news. Haven’t heard anything about when/how it happened so therefore assuming that it was in training, anyone know?

I disagree completely,

Letting him go on loan left us with only one Natural left back,

Tommy Rowe can play there, yes, but I wouldn't class him as a proper left back, when he's played the majority of his career in midfield.

So I think it was a poor decision.

Agreed. What shall we do Saturday, then - get on Bailey Wright's back?

Can hunt defend? 

Yes. Reasonably solid,  experienced pro. It's a matter of covering for a few months. Need 2 options and Rowe and Hunt are the best if you ask me.

You've lost me???

Where have I got on anyones back?

Read my posts again, are you ignoring the fact we only had one 'proper' left back after Pring went on loan?

While it's a huge shame, the important thing is ensuring he returns to full fitness. I'd rather he be out for five months and us give another lad a chance than five weeks with a player at 60%.

I think Pring would have coped well as he looks to have it all (attack, defence and aerial ability) aside from experience.  It's a pity that there isn't a recall option now, although I think he can be recalled in the January window that opens Jan 9th. That's about a month or so before JD is due back and I'm not sure if the five months out projection includes a time for getting match fit.

Means he will slowly work his way back into the team and he won’t have suitors this summer. Small victory this. 

Get well soon Jay

LJ hasn’t really been lucky with injuries has he?

Lot of injuries happening to key players.

Another option for temporary cover is Taylor Moore. He played at LB in one of the Derby games in pre-season. Obviously he's far from first choice, or even second or third, especially as it removes him from covering CB.

Wright is also out for 4-6 weeks? That right?

All of a sudden we look very short at the back in terms of quality and numbers.

He went out on loan before Dasilva was injured, so not a terrible decision at all.

No terrible decision - surely the club should have foreseen the Dasilva injury coming? !  

If not then we should employ a psychic to address just this sort of issue. :)

You are missing the point,

Last season we had Dasilva and Kelly right? Pring goes out on loan, good decision. Would have to very unlucky for both to get injured.

This season, we have Dasilva and sell Kelly. We didn't replace Kelly, for whatever reason. Maybe that reason is because Cameron Pring is at the club, 

ready made left back cover.

Why anyone would take the decision to send him out on loan is beyond me.

Yes Rowe can play there, and yes he's had a good start for us there, but i'm sure most would agree this isn't his natural position, No?

Where does it say Dasilva’s out for five months? LJ said in his presser today 10-12 weeks.

That’s up to three months out, so hopefully back in the XI before Christmas, barring any setbacks.

Barnaby Soady on the bench soon then? 

He's highly rated - obviously far sooner than ideal, but might be our only option at this rate.

Bet Nagy could play in a three at the back, allowing Massengo and Brownhill to cover CM

Would be a big waste, he was clearly bought in to play midfield.

There must be some ageing pro who can do a job for six months, I remember Big Joe signing some bloke who couldn't get a club. John Bailey wasn't so bad.

Pedro and Rowe would drop to make a 4 or 5 at the back when on the defensive... that's how I thought it through.

yep. Only seen them briefly of course but I though Pereira looked good once he settled at Birmingham and Rowe seems a Wade Elliott type appointment - experienced natural leader.

Hoping everyone gells quickly.

My only concerns tbh, are the tracking back from certain players and work rate in pressing of others.

I also hope we get more movement into the right places from the front line.

It’s the obvious back three, no argument there, but why in that configuration? Moore is right sided, I believe, and Baker left, and I would have thought Kallas was our most robust defender and a natural choice to play centrally. Otherwise, I like the look of it.

I know injuries are part and parcel of the game and all clubs get them, but bloody hell we've had some atrocious luck in recent seasons. The year we had the big cup run, for instance, we ended up with something like 6 or 7 senior players undergoing quite significant surgery for long-term injuries, and ended up with the squad stretched really, really thin. (From memory, there were knees - Hegeler, Fammy, among others, groins - Taylor, Duric, and a number of other issues; so much so that we had the then physio, Steve Allen, doing vids to explain the nature of the injuries, the treatment and players' progress, which I've never seen before or since). Last year Korey gets a bad one and then another within no time at all of making his comeback, and so on, and on. This is another big loss and I really feel for Dasilva, plus as you say a selection/cover problem that has far-reaching implications for how we can set up.

I have seen very little of Olsson and don't know why he has been released by Swansea at the age of 31 (partly financial reasons, maybe: they aren't exactly flush), but he certainly doesn't lack for experience. Must be worth at least considering, one would think, perhaps a contact for the remainder of the current season?   

Yes seasons ******

I’d go same players but move a couple around (Kalas in middle of the back three and Nagy just in front). Although I’d be tempted to play Weimann for Messengo while he gets up to speed and put him on the right of Brownhill.

                            Bentley 

                Moore  Kalas  Baker 

        Pereira         Nagy          Rowe 

                 Brownhill  Massengo 

                            Palmer 

                             Afobe

Rowe is one of those two players who will work his socks off because he knows this is his big and probably last chance for a shot at the big time .

From the little I’ve seen he makes me think of Mark Little, limited skill wise but more than makes up for that with his energy and enthusiasm.

Kalas has played right side before, both for us and previous teams.

I think Baker is better more central as his reading of the game is good and wins headers.

Moore played left side against Leeds and did ok.

Hence my reasoning.

That’s up to three months out, so hopefully back in the XI before Christmas, barring any setbacks. 

In the press conference Johnson said that he won't be on the training pitch for 12 weeks but then said he expects him out of the team for 4-5 months.

All about opinions MI, but Rowe is a very decent technical player...has a lovely left foot too.

Loved Litts but he was predominantly power, speed and strength.

does the 5- 6 months include getting back to match fitness?

I think slightly different timescales were given to the press than to senior reds if i’m getting the detail correct.

i read / heard it as:

10-12 weeks (3-4 months) to get back on the grass

4-5 month’s total....

....so 5 months imho to be ready for selection.  

New year at least then 😭
