Axel? If fit?

Can't be Richards or De Laet. 

Yeah Axel. I know he is on loan, but clearly has been a major part of Bruce's fist team plans and ahead of Bree at RB when he was fit and talk of a second season loan is obviously strong.

Honestly, I thought he was poor, which was disappointing, but he is young and inexperienced and certainly tried his best.

Counting his previous club, he has decent CH experience, so that was why I expected more. But young, and plenty of people who know more than me see a bright future for him, so happy to give him lot more time.

He was good in that he didn't cost us. I'm happy with that.

Maybe I should be more trusting, but I wouldn't want to see him on the pitch in the final. However, I may have to.

I could see him being used at cb this year. He has the attributes to make it there. 

Too short surely?

5'11

James Chester about 5'6, I actually think bree at centre back might actually work.

Chester isn't 5' 6".

He's more like 5' 3" or 4".

Was Bree dressed in high heels at the Time? 

Always looks short to me - I don’t see him as a centre half to be honest either way - don’t think he’s tough enough to play there or good enough .

forwards would dominate  him .

id like to see him established at right back next season .

From the little we've seen of him, his biggest attribute appears to be his composure on the ball and how well he gets forward. Playing him at CB would be silly.

So just like Stones etc;)

 

More progressive football, we could have a back three of Bree, Jedinak and Chester.

He played Cb in the cup start of the season and looked good there.

A back 3 of Bree , jedi and Chester ? Do you fancy a trip to Shrewsbury and Scunthorpe or something?

I think it would work well, Bree offers the covering pace, Jedinak the heading ability and Chester the composure. We’ll be able to play out from the back and take the game to the opposition. 

Obviously, you don’t do it every game, and you tailor it to your opposition. 

If we can get another cb instead of Jedinak great, but if money is as tight as people think we have to utilise what we have.

I don't really see these centre half attributes but I think if given a chance he'd be a good right back for us.

Playing out  from the back with jedinak in defence is a recipe for disaster - his passing is too poor .

for me Bree has to be given the regular right back role - no more square pegs in round holes 

‘I liked Dawson and thought he was superb for hull against us - also  partnered Chester and was out of contract .

sadly he’s joined forest on a free transfer this week .

Are the attributes you've mentioned not exactly what the best centre-halves these days have/need?

Would start the season with the intent on making him first choice right back to be honest. It will benefit us and him in the long term. I really like the look of him, gives us much needed pace. is strong and he looks like a real good footballer in the making. Had a few moments where he looked a bit eratic in possession and the tackle but that is only something he is going to grow out of with games and age.

Oh, he isn't a CB in a million years.
