Who should play Phillips role on Saturday

White slipped into that position on Saturday and did well enough, I have no doubt he could do a job for us on Saturday but him and Cooper are the best centre back pair in the division, why change that especially if that means playing Berrardi at centre back. It could be feisty affair on Saturday and we all know Berradi’s temperament.
Normally I would say Shackleton in Kelvins role but as he’s been out a few weeks I’m tempted to go Stuart “Madeley" Dallas.

White & Cooper are a formidable pairing, why disrupt that?

I’d play Dallas there. He’s Mr Dependable & Versatile all wrapped in one. He’s been remarkably valuable to the squad this season. If we do go up, he’ll have been a huge part of the reason.

I don’t like rejigging a side too much. Moving White into DM just creates a weaker defence.

The challenge is against a team likely to sit. I would be fine with Dallas in there. He adapts and seems to listen to Bielsa’s instructions.

Another perhaps more aggressive option is to push Pablo there. Not my preferred option but he has played deep at times (although usually when after a goal)

When phillips went off, white went into midfield

I’d be very very surprised if he doesn’t play in midfield

Personally wouldn’t.

I agree in total. Hopefully White moving forward was just for the remainder of that match, not a glimpse of any intent.

VOF.. totally agree about cooper and white, ideally wouldn’t want to break that up.. but I think White could do really well there.. just got a feeling!

I feel KPs role is do important id want the best player available there...

Not ideal at all though !

I think White will be quality playing there but would rather he stayed at centre back if we are playing a three,

Imagine if we lost Phillips to a long term injury or he gets a 3 game ban. Need to strengthen that area in Jan unless we wanna chance it.

MB is a creature of habit so, I don't expect any change from what was.

Agreed, Kamara. Dallas to play in front of the defence. It's a conservative approach, but it's worked so far for Bielsa.
