He's played there before for us and could do a job at this level. He's a commanding presence (6ft4), can tackle, quick feet, can pass, fast box to box, can score a goal and could help protect our back four! TBO id prefer him at CB but we've got Boyce, Pop & Hudson as cover. I think him and Soares could work well in midfield?

Agree with Boxing Francis. Fitz played there for a few games last season, and was pretty shocking at it.

With AKI and Leggy out,
and Hughesy and Ben out of form,
Soares and Hall could work in the middle with Boycie and Ward in central defence, and that would also solve the right back position, may work :p

I don't even think Dowie would do anything so stupid...

No. I'd rather play Butts in central midfield. But that would require Granville getting fit.

I don't think we have the cover in defence, and from what I saw of Fitz playing midfield last season, I don't think he could do the job there.

A dangerous thought.

Don't put ideas into Dowie's head.

At least not again anyway.

We should not need to be playing players out of position at all (except left wing)

2 goalkeepers
2 left backs
2 right backs
4 central defenders
2 right sided wingers
0 left sided wingers
6 central midfielders
5 strikers

If we have to start playing players out of position in the position where we have more senior players than anywhere else we really are in trouble.

kiraly up front ??!!??!!???? !

It seems to me that Fitz's main problem at the moment is his distribution. Why would we play him in midfield.

No, Fitz looked out of place in centre midfield. He is one of the 2 best central defenders at the club and seems to be building a good partnership with Ward - so leave well alone.

Leigertwood plays RB, CB, CM. Fitz is a similar type player only 10 times better. i cant see why it wouldnt work?

Ward against Preston too and Kiraly Kiraly did come up for 'that' corner.

Well, Stuart Pearce did prefer David James to Jon Macken when City needed a goal last season.

Count nothing out and nothing in these days !!

Here s a thought lets play the players in their strongest positions.

Fitz Halls distribution is too poor to be playing in midfield

i dont think it would work. What would be the point?

Raoul Duke

In midfield last season he struglled to control the ball, turn and pass on quickly to a team mate. He would probably have less time on the ball in the CCC and may really struggle.

FFS, he is useless there, it would be like playing Soares at right wing and Hughes at left wing. Hold on a minute..............................

How about, sack Dowie and re-appoint a joint managerial team of Kember and Smith?:o

This is the worst tactical suggestion to grace the BBS for some time.

In the games I saw with Hall in midfield, Hall looked totally confused and played more like a 5th defender in front of the back four, that a defensive midfielder.

I still wonder why Palace need a dedicated defensive midfielder in this division? Which in my opinion is why Aki was so good last season.
