When Mings is fit, move Hause yo left back and have Konsa and Elmo on the right hand side. More of a solid base to build from and all comfortable on the ball.

Elmo? Not in a million years for me. Was awful yesterday and never should he be playing ahead of Guilbert

Elmo’s positioning yesterday was spot on and so were some of his balls up the line. Whilst we are currently leaking goals like they are going out of fashion he’s a much safer bet to have at right back. I do like Guilbert though but it was right to take him out of the team yesterday.

Agree Elmo was fine yesterday, reliable and leads by example. Annoying that we have to drop one of our few decent new players to accommodate him. Freddy on the wing?

I agree entirely.  You talk about experience - Elmo is one of the few in our squad who has it.  He wasted 2 very good opportunities yesterday with poor crosses but he is always steady as opposed to the erratic Guilbert.

Targett is in the Irish Times team of the day for yesterday's games!

Excellent. A few more reviews like that should help us get rid of him.

Byram completely lost him for his back poster header that he should of buried.
Elmo is a solid Champuonship level player, I really dislike it when we play him.

The other day Dean Smith suggested Matt Targett could one day play for England.

Really?

What sport at?

Beat me to it.

Read and weep chaps

Quote
But Smith believes there is more to be done if Targett is to fulfil his true potential. “There is potentially an England left-back there but he has to go and push himself,” said the boss.

Full nonsense

Was talking about the full backs yesterday, and how they’re getting caught out too far forward.
If they’re going to push on so far up we need to play with a 3-5-2 sort of formation.

You choice from Mings, Chester, Engels, Hause & Konya

I think he's form has been scratchy,  but the absence of Mings next to him hasn't helped.

His panicked pass out yesterday was symptomatic of a player devoid of confidence, like many.

You mean a manager is defending one of his players? How absolutely appalling -  sack him immediately.

Defending your players shouldn't mean talking out of your arse.

I suppose he should start slagging them off becasue that's what somebody on the internet thinks.

This is why I think a back 3 would help him, and Gilbert.
With a defensive mid in place I suppose you’d be looking at a 3-1-4-2 ish formation.

Is the alternative to slagging your players off just talking out of your arse?  Several stages in between I'd say. Saying Targett is potentially England material is daft because it could be said about any England player and because it's not even clear at the moment whether Targett is a half decent Villa player.

I'll bow to your superior experience on the subject of talking out of your arse.
