    Completely agree. Signs of improvement are there to be seen. Only the blind would think otherwise. I think we’ve found Bacuna’s best position at right back and Clarke is finally showing the signs of a good defender. Maybe not wasted potential for once.

    I was one of the loudest detractors of Clark, although when Lambert gave him a new contract I accepted he knows best and must have seen something we all couldn’t. It seems he was right. While the defence isn’t perfect it’s starting to look pretty good, even with Okore injured. Plus Luna and Bacuna have both scored this season, Vlaar scored a couple of crackers last season and Clark can head in from corners.

    Good review of the defence! I totally agree, I think our defence has improved a lot, and would only be better with Okore fit. Lambert really has to work on getting some quality into the midfield and we will have a good side again.

    Vlaar and Clark are forming a good partnership.Also with Bacuna now at RB and Luna at LB I think this might be the combination to suit our team.I really hope Lambert has got it right and we push on with more clean sheets.UTV

    I think our forward line and midfield could take the pressure off the back line by scoring early.Also defence should try and contribute to the scoring from corners more regularly.UTV

    This is funny. If Clark has a mare in the next game, everyone will be calling for him to be dropped! As for him keeping Okore out of the team…what??!! Okore has hardly kicked a ball for us! At this stage all we can say is that Clark has played much better than he did last year.

    Bacuna has looked very good at RB, solid defensively and going forward.

    I wonder if we wouldnt be better playing 4-4-1-1,

    Guzan
    Lowton Clark Vlaar Luna
    Bacuna Delph Westwood Gabby
    Weimann
    Benteke

    This would give us more width and allow Weimann to play more centrally and link up more with Benteke. This would also give Lowton more protection and be able to overlap. Thoughts…?

      I could live with that as long as we can keep clean sheets more regularly and score more early.I think the 4 at the back and 4 in midfield would be a lot safer but Lambert likes it central…UTV

    As a lot of us on here I was hugely critical of Clark and was completely suprised at his contract extension which I thought was barmy and undeserved. How he has proved me wrong this season so far! he’s been playing blinders every time he’s on the field. good on the lad, I hope it continues.

    Bacuna looks comfortable at right back but if Lowton finds the form from last year I think he should go straight back in the side.

    I’ve been saying we should play a good old 442/4411 for some time and Lowton (on form) and bacuna on the right would be great I think.

    Also with Weimann not firing so well at the moment I also think Helenius should get a good run out behind Kozak/Baneke. UTV

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
