Best starting eleven

Recommended Posts

Done some statistic research and this is our best 11:

 

Raya

Reed Lenihan Mulgrew Bennett

Evans Rodwell Travis

Dack Graham Armstrong

 

Rodwell is a better defender than Mulgrew but Mulgrew has scored 8 goals this season so hard to leave out. Whats your best 11?

I don't see how this is our best starting 11, whatever stats you take into it. 

Reed has never played there for us

Bennett is not a left back

Dack not a left winger 

If you were picking our best 11, would you not use a formation that we actually use? 

Home team

                           Raya

Nyambe Lenihan Rodwell Bell

                Travis Reed

   Rothwell     Dack    Armstrong

                   Graham

Away team

                        Raya

Nyambe Lenihan Rodwell Bell

                Travis Evans

      Reed     Dack    Armstrong

                   Graham

4-2-3-1

                  Raya

Nyambe Lenihan Mulgrew Bell

                Reed Travis

    Bennett Dack Armstrong

                 Graham 

Similar but 4-3-3 ish

                   Raya

 Nyambe Lenihan Mulgrew Bell

         Bennett Travis Reed

                        Dack

          Armstrong Graham

 

or, I’d like

                         Raya

        Rodwell Lenihan Mulgrew   

 Bennett    Reed       Travis         Bell 

                          Dack

              Armstrong Graham

 

It’s some combination of them lot. With Bennett and Nyambe being the toughest choice as wing backs. Rothwell a perfect impact sub, and Rodwell needs a few more performances like the last two to really trouble Cpt. Fantastic Free Kick

I suspect, injuries permitting and potential additions pending, we'll be seeing this once we're "safe." TM's trajectory for sure.

What formation do the u23s play?

I note Wharton has gone to Bury who are playing 3 at the back I think.

Might give some indication

I think Evans had his best game in a Rovers shirt today. He was the iFollow Man of the Match.

Must say, I quite like Warren Lucy and the main guy on iFollow. They speak like supporters, rather than Rovers mouthpieces - never afraid to criticise and cringe when the rest of us do!

Evans has played in the centre of our midfield for years and it took a kid to come in and show him how a midfielder has to be able to break up play and then contribute to the attack, the latter of which Evans can't do. His limitations as a midfielder have held us back for years along with the mediocrity that has played alongside of him. Players like Travis and reed are proper midfielders. Can do both sides of the game, like midfielders should. Limited players like Evans , Lowe, Smallwood will only take you so far, regardless of how well he played today

Wow. I like Bennett. But I don't think he would have a centre mid performance like Evans put it today in him 

Firstly Bennett doesn't go hiding when things aren't going well and his presence is known. Secondly he is more of a goal threat and has more composure in the final third as well as a decent shot. His energy and attitude drives the team in a way I've never seen Evans do. Ability wise probably not to much in it, however Bennett can do everything Evans can. You can't say that the other way around

Bennett has only played a handful of games centre mid though. He looked energetic, but to say he should replace an international centre midfielder is a bit of a leap!

Just my opinion. Each to there own. I'm not taking anything away from Evans today or when he has played well but imo he is a limited mediocre championship midfielder and Travis and reed coming in this season highlighted that. I'm sure people will agree with me and I'm sure I will be called crazy. After all it's a game of opinions.

And Bennett is an international player 😁

I wouldn't be having Bennett in central midfield ahead of any of Evans, Travis, or Reed (who is in my opinion our best central midfielder) . Bennett doesn't use the ball well enough when ever he plays central midfield he gives the ball away too much either with wayward passing or speculative long range shots.

It is indeed all about opinions. I really like Bennett as a player. 

Just checked about Bennett there. No caps, but was called into the Jamaica squad. Surprising he has no caps. Worse players have played for them!

I think he played in a couple of friendlies. It was more tongue in cheek

Bit negative. Do we really need a keeper?
