Team for Coventry


Recommended Posts

As for lineups, Holden seems to have shown his hand as to exactly how he will set up. Everyone has their favourites I know but I'd personally like to see Nagy & Diedhiou start. The back 6 mostly picks itself, could make many different arguments for the rest.

Doesn't he have to have another (negative) Covid test before he's allowed to train? Read something on another thread - I'll see if I can find it

Yes, perhaps the negative test he already had with Czech Republic doesn’t count, and they usually test on a Tuesday I think, perhaps waiting for results.

Confusing whatever!

What even are the rules in the Championship this season regarding subs?

7 or 9 on the bench?

3 or 5 subs used?

I thought it had gone back to how it was before the season resumed, no water breaks too. Might be wrong though.

Not necessarily how i would pick it, but i suspect we will see:

bentley

moore kalas mawson

hunt morrell paterson weimann Dasilva

fam wells

 

the selection is relatively straight forward at the moment, but when williams and walsh are back, then ive no idea how he will play it.

Yeah I'm confident, if Kalas is available, this will be the line up too. 

I'm personally still not won over by Weimann in midfield but Holden seems to love him in there and there's even strong talk of him being the permanent captain which worries me slightly as it's his place I'd like Walsh to take when fit.

Other than that though I really like the look of this side overall. I do worry about us potentially getting overrun in midfield against a Coventry side known for effectively playing 4 central midfielders in a 3-4-2-1 formation but this will prove a great opportunity to test out Holden's theory of pushing forward on of our centre backs in the press to even those numbers out.

Can't wait for the start of the season now, COYR!

There are caveats because we don't know who is fit and who may need to self-isolate- aside from the obvious Baker, Williams, Walsh and O'Dowda all out.

             Bentley

        Moore Kalas Mawson

Hunt Nagy Morrell Paterson DaSilva

           Weimann Wells

You can create triangles with that shape. Lots of them! Paterson at a base, Weimann and Wells ahead. Nagy-Morrell with one of Weimann or Wells alternating. Moore-Mawson-Nagy/Morrell ahead depending on the phase of play. I'm sure there are more too!

Clearly Sessegnon is an option at RWB, Brunt is versatile- Martin and Diedhiou are of course options and Massengo given the injuries could be a first reserve.

Weimann or Moore can help out Hunt in some phases- Paterson would be tasked with helping out DaSilva. 

The good thing about that specific back 3 is that all 3 are comfortable in possession. All of them- clearly the two either side are more adventurous but Kalas into the opposition half last week completed 18/19 passes- let off the leash a bit he might be able to be more attacking than he's shown though he must be the most conservative of the 3. Baker as one of them and I'd worry a bit that isolation of the least suited to the high line could occur- Williams too given his age and relative lack of pace- maybe Rowe might be that man if we have to field him at LCB e.g., not least as it's far from his first position anyway!

Caveats:

How fit is Mawson? Can add Sessegnon, Brunt and Martin to that- but they're not necessarily starters at this second IMO.

What is the situation with Kalas? Vyner and Rowe at CB and LCB would put something of a limitation on us this week, in terms of building from the back and dominating the ball, higher line etc.

Why do most have Moore on the right of the back three rather than the middle - am I missing something ?

 

 

 

 

2 ball players either side and the stopper in Kalas central.

Kalas looks more comfortable centrally imo.

Only one CB would bring the ball out at any time though.

For me, when we have three at the back, expect long passes into the channels - meat and drink to Kalas/Mawson, maybe a problem for Moore. The positioning of Kalas having played both right and left is very good and is something Moore has yet to attain. I'd much prefer Moore in the centre.

I was just curious as to why the vast majority had Kalas in the centre - but we'll find out soon who plays where and I'd have no issues if DH plays Moore on the right (just doubt he would, but happy to be proven wrong) :)

Yep.  Although of course you can play it however you like.  I think Kalas likes to be the spare man / covering defender in the main.

I’m not adverse to it being Kalas right, Moore centre, but Holden has generally picked Kalas in the centre.  He was LCB v PNE, but that was with Williams (CB) and Vyner (RCB).  However when Benkovic came on, Kalas went back to the centre.

Think it is 50/50 whether Mawson plays. Depending on his fitness levels etc. Holden hinted on Monday that it would be unlikely that any of the new signings would start.

I’m expecting Vyner to start but will be happy to see Mawson if he is up to speed fitness wise.

Didn’t Kalas play RB for Fulham when n loan there?

It also helps I think if the wider central defenders are comfortable going out to cover the full backs , Moore has played full back. The obvious perfect player we had for that in our title winning team was luke ayling .

Yes, in fact Kalas, Moore and Vyner have all played RB, so used to being in that portion of the pitch...and have all played RCB too.  If Mawson can nail LCB we look a really decent CB3 unit.

Got a feeling it’ll be

Bentley 

Hunt Moore Kalas Mawson Dasilva

Nagy Paterson Weimann

Fam Wells

Guessing with the players fit we could have a bench of 

O’Leary, Vyner, Sessengon*, Morrell, Eliasson, Palmer, Martin

Which to me looks like the strongest bench we have had for a while and that’s without Walsh, Williams, Baker etc

Yeh think he could start that aswell out of loyalty

Cracking team that! I would switch Nagy and Morrell over though.

Mawson would play in the center so he could run down the middle?

That's a good shout-yeah Nagy central of the 3 seems a way to go.

My thinking there was that we could have a carrier either side of Kalas- Moore right, Mawson left but a carrier through the middle could also be good- stepping up into midfield as and when. Thinking Mawson for this.

I wouldn't even rule out Kalas as showing adventure in phases @JonDolman- I've cited it before but I note that in Slovakia he completed 18/19 passes in the opposition half- completed 1 key pass as well. He's the most conservative of the back 3 and rightly so, but always thought he has scope in terms of pushing on a bit too, at times. Limited times of course, but at times all the same.

Yeah he goes on powerful runs when he sees a gap. But for me Mawson and Moore have a lot more quality on the ball. Better touch and better passing and can use either foot. Kalas certainly decent enough though. Just worries me at times when he smashes a pass to the goalie or defender.

Kalas played left CB in a 2 for Czech Republic last week.

Thanks Dave.

LCB- ah could we move switch him and Mawson around then, thought Kalas was a right footer and Mawson left- but Mawson raiding from central could be a way to go at times.

Pass completion- that 18/19 in opposition half ratio looks suspect then!

Still not sure we've seen from a technical standpoint the best of Kalas- but of the 3, he certainly needs to be the most conservative.

It's probably just me but given an incubation period of anything up to 14 days for Covid...well who am I to question but it is according to varied estimates 2-14 days- towards the lower end and he's in the clear along with us- but if not...?

Am just likely erring on the side of caution!

Kalas is right footed.  Just that Czech Republic played him left side in the pair (I guess his partner was right footed too!).

I would say Mawson is comfortable with either foot.

He’s been training all week since returning.  He took a test with his country....it was negative.  He will have had at least one test with City this week, possibly 2 (e.g. Tues / Fri).  We will have had at least one test result back....the fact he’s been training tells me that was negative too.

Of course he could fail a test at any point, contracting it from any source, just like anyone else.

Mawson being comfortable with either foot a good place to be.

Can't recall what day Czech players potentially came into contact or indirect contact with the guy? I can't remember if I'm honest but my slight concern about the incubation period bit is that if it's towards the upper end he could play, be fine- but be playing either asymptomatically or play while still within the incubation period and unknowingly have infected others by the time signs or symptoms actually come to light. Not his fault of course!

Having said that a quick google search, suggests a 4-5 day median incubation period- less worried now!
