Former West Ham United and Wales star, and Peterborough United youth team coach, Jack Collison believes Leo Da Silva could shine as a number ‘10’ in Grant McCann’s Posh side.
The Peterborough Telegraph started a debate about Posh team selection this week. Here are some selected reader comments as told to @PTAlanSwann on Twitter.
Either Forrester or Doughty alongside Anthony Grant. They’d tear the Gillingham midfield apart, who were by all accounts awful last weekend.
I’d give Conor O’Malley a start in goal. Jonathan Bond hasn’t done anything wrong, but O’Malley looks a fantastic ‘keeper and he isn’t on loan.
Jonathan Bond has been largely fantastic. It would be ridiculous to drop him? I’d play Michael Doughty over Leo in the hope he finds some form.
I would pick Danny Lloyd over Leo. Alan Hanson always said: ‘you don’t win anything with kids.’
Definitely Doughty over Leo.
4-4-2: Bond, Shephard, Taylor, Tafazolli, Hughes, Maddison, Grant, Forrester, Edwards, Lloyd and Marriott. Lloyd just off Marriott.Unfortunately Baldwin has been very ordinary this season.
4-1-3-2. Bond: Shephard, Taylor, Tafazolli, Hughes: Grant: Maddison, Lloyd, Edwards: Miller, Marriott.
(4-4-1-1): Bond: Shephard, Taylor, Tafazolli, Hughes: Maddison, Grant, Doughty, Edwards: Leo: Marriott.
Bond, Shephard, Taylor, Baldwin, Hughes, Maddison, Grant, Anderson, Edwards, Marriott, Miller in a 4-4-2 or 4-3-1-2.
Give Leo a go as a number 10. Tell him get into space, demand the ball and be free to run at the opposition without neglecting the tracking back.
Leo played the number 10 role many times for Posh youths. And he was very good.
Wing backs for Posh are last season’s diamond.
Gwion is back. That’s vital.
