If we can find a powerful and dominating in the air centre back, there will be less need for Jed and more mobility in midfield.

From what I saw last season the Championship is full of them.

Huth?

I don't watch players of other clubs enough to know their consistency levels.

maybe Sean Morrison/Sol Bamba  of Cardiff.....they may want to upgrade.

I wonder why?

Cardiff had 2

Leeds had 2..... the season before last.

We had one in Terry and even though Chester is not as dominating in the air he is still a top defender. 

But I understand where you are coming from.

If we can offload Jedi and Whelan id be pretty happy with a midfield 3 of Thor, Hourihane and Lansbury. (Or Jack if he stays). At championship level that's definitely strong enough.

He's so far given away a simple pass and missed a sitter. The frustrating side of him.

I would like to keep him, for next season.

Decent utility player, very limited. Plays DM against a side that doesn't attack, pings the ball about for fun and everyone thinks he is Xavi.

Tbf Hoddle starts bashing one out if a player plays a simple one two.

Iceland deserve to get **** up sooner or later. They get to the biggest stage in world football and they put 11 men behind the ball. Cynical, sly digs off the ball. Yes they have a system, a structure yada yada but as soon as this dross is eliminated the better. Argentina have actually been pretty decent and will get more joy i reckon against croatia and nigeria because they try and play.

It's a World Cup and they have every right to be there. It's up to the bigger 'better' teams to come up with ways to beat them if they can't tough.

Kane on corners and strikers in midfield?

Why would Iceland play attacking against Argentina???!!! As the weaker team of course you’d be cautious and use your strength and physicality. It’d be suicide any other way. 

Its not attractive but now and again a defensive display should be praised. It is just as disciplined and requires more concentration.

Of course they have. The topped a group in qualifying with croatia and ukraine in it. No mean feat that. And im not naive enough to think that they'll suddenly start playing tika taka football. They didnt in qualifying. Dont have the personnell . However from an entertainment point of view its shite and i hope they get eliminated. Iceland though arent their to serve some guy in irelands entertainment needs. Not in their remit. They've got a point. Teams with width will surely expose them. Argentina were so narrow and unbelievably never changed their approach.
