The Leeds United starting 11 polls - Right Centre Back

Post by faaip »

I've split these as I do think Right and Left need to delineated.

So Robin Koch currently holds the position and is a right footed player, Llorente has been off colour playing left side but has shown quality in the past playing right side. For those not worried about which foot a player is strongest on then Struijk, Cooper and Hjelde are available, I think Coop has had the odd 30 minutes that side in the past for us and is the club captain. Cresswell is currently not at ER

As with the others this runs from 24 hours from creation so don't spend all day thinking about it

No brainer on Koch. He's our best defender. Class act. perfect professional. And will only keep getting better.

Koch is an easy one, I also think with his size and a bit more physicality Rasmus could be a good back up CB.

Yeah, but he also got shrugged off the ball like a kid against Wolves that cost us a goal, and seem to recall that happened again since?

Dunno if you remember Llorente's defending at corners last season too :shock: Car crash :?

No brainer, this one, Koch by a distance. Though I agree with Cjay that there's room for improvement in his game. I do think if he can avoid injury and suspension, he can make that slot his own and will grow into the role as the season unfolds.

Robin Koch is our current incumbent and has not done too badly either. I’ve got Pascal in at left centre back and Hjelde at left back so that just leaves Koch or Coops, I think I’ll leave well alone.
