This KDH we're expecting to get loads of game time because Praet has been injured? The same lad who is behind Hamza and hasn't played all but a minute for us this season even though wilf has been missing? Even hamza has played about 10 minutes for us (hyperbole) this season with loads of injuries. Or am I missing something? 

Everything?

 

KDH effectively plays a very different position from Hamza.  He doesn't have two guys directly blocking him.  He's had an extraordinarily successful half-season on loan, while Hamza has been an intermittent bomb scare.  We have no depth at creative MF if we don't sign one, so unless there's no squad rotation at all (and even for Rodgers that's impossible) KDH would have to play.

Puel recalled Barnes from West Brom and threw him straight into the first team. Can see KDH being recalled and getting serious minutes here with FA Cup, Europa League and Premier League heavy schedule coming up.

Barnes had a lot to thank Puel for, as it turns out. Because of this, when Rodgers came in, Barnes was in the first team and continued to give him a run of games. As most managers do, when they first come in, they tend to stick to the then first team for a while before making changes. As Barnes was already in, as it so happened, it gave him a head start and he did well to stay on.

I think we should bring KDH back if we have that option as part of the loan deal. We'll need an extra midfielder with Praet being out.

 

We saw what happened last season when we didn't have enough squad depth. He should get plenty of game time with us still competing in three competitions.

 

He's one of our own.....

I would most definitely recall him now if we can. If DP is out for 3 months we undoubtedly need cover for YT and JM. Sure he would be on the bench primarily, but he would see plenty of action, and once he’s on the pitch it’s up to him to show if he deserves a start.

Leave KDH at Luton. In the long run him playing week in week out will be more beneficial than getting the odd game here. Aside to that, Praet has played further forward than I expected and was almost an inside forward at times against Stoke. We have Under and Choudhury who between them can play praets various roles. Especially when Praet hasn’t started that often, I don’t see what all the panic is about. Granted if another midfielder gets a long term injury, then we should consider bringing him back.

But we also have a couple of youth players who have been in and around the first team squad in training so I still don’t think we’d be rushing to recall him.

Hang on a minute. Creative midfielders to me means accurate passers,not just direction but correct weight of pass, Some would add "vision" but movement by the players ahead often have more to do with that than the MF's vision. Fofana and Soyuncu can and often do come forward (but only one at a time guys) and both are accurate passers of the ball,and presumably will both be in the team. With these two, Pereira, Thielemans and Madison, I think we're ok on creative midfield strength. Evans as well I've seen pass forward balls that had he had the label ,you would have sworn came from a creative midfielder. The beauty of having Castagne and Justin is that Pereira could maybe play as a creative midfielder, and Luke Thomas looks as if he's developing maybe into a Justin/Castagne type defender, even more likely with those two as examples in the same club. You don't hear the phrase "total football" as much now, but it always seemed a wonderful way of playing to me.

I've maybe become a bit more realistic about our chances of winning the league (top 4 I still think we can do) but the more I've watched the team lately the more impressed I am with what we've already got in players , and there seems to me a growing belief within BR and the team.

Has anybody considered what would happen if Schmeichel got injured?

 

With Iversen going out on loan and Jakupovic apparently not trusted, we need to recall Sir Keir Dewberry-Horlicks from Melchester Rovers quickly to provide much needed cover in goal.

I always think, maybe wrongly,  competent GKs are found more easily and cheaply than any other position. Maybe unfair to Kasper who I think brings a lot more to the club and team than just goalkeeping. They tend not to get injured too much either, despite it looking a dangerous position. We have n't got a Duke or a Lord floating around as a striker have we ?

Leave Kiernan where he is as a full season of Championship football will help him massively. 
 

Give Sidnei Tavares the opportunity he is desperate for and see if we can get him to sign a new deal. 

Agreed, at least Ricardo is available too!

The news we were expecting unfortunately :(

 

We can’t go three months constantly playing Youri, if he gets injured then we’re well and truly fvcked.

 

I doubt anybody wants to see a midfield combo of Ndidi & Mendy or Ndidi & Choudhury anytime soon.

 

KDH must be recalled or we have to get another ‘Number 8’ in on loan.

It looks to be either KDH, a new player in or an academy player
