Who makes your back four?

on Thu Jun 29, 2017 6:25 pm
With Manga signing a new contract, Warnock has giving himself a selection headache. If he chooses to go for a back five then that solves the problem. However I think Warnock will probably choose the less defensive option of a back four. So who makes the back four for you?

So full backs;
Connolly, Richards, Paterson, Bennett, Peltier

Paterson is injured for now so I'm guessing it'll be Peltier and Bennett starting the season

Centre backs:
Bamba, Manga, Morrison, Connolly

I would like Warnock to pick Manga and Bamba but is more likely to go, in my view, for Manga Morrison and put Bamba maybe in front of them for the bigger away games..

What you think?

Back three for me with Bamba, Manga, Morrison or Connolly.
Wing backs Richards/Patterson and Bennett.

Yep, I agree with CS - has to be a back three, with Bamba, Manga and Morrison (Connolly will no doubt play a fair share of games due to injuries, suspensions and pure rotation). Also got a few wing-back options so would be silly not to utilise our strongest aspect.

There also wouldn't be much room for peltier with a back five...presumably with five at the back we would be looking for lively wingbacks...bennett and intially richards (paterson when fit)...poor lee is too defensive to play with a back four

We have an embarrassment of riches defensively. Peltier would walk into most Championship sides, as would Connolly.
