MBS, Roerslov, Tariq or Vitaly. I wouldn't mind seeing the latter out of that lot when Norgaard is fit and back in the holding role.
Would prefer Janelt and Norgs in a 4 man mf personally, Reid, Henrick and Ethan back 3. Might compensate more for loss of Rico's attacking threat.

Tariq maybe but prefer him up top.

Jigsaw puzzle or what. Imagine TF has a proper migraine brewing.

Fosu or Janelt isn't a bad shout, once Norgaard is back of course. Not sure Sorensen has the pace of full back to suit our style at all to be honest.

Roerslev or Tarique tomorrow, see after that...

Think Fosu might start up front personally. My money on MBS or Roerslov tomorrow night.

I'd back Roerslev to take the position, certainly until Nørgaard can play 90 minutes, then Janelt could take in on, leaving Dalsgaard (or Roerslev) to play the more advanced full back from the right.

This news is such a choker for us and Rico.

I hope the recovery goes to plan and someone takes the opportunity to step up in his absence.

Well we are about to find out if we have adequate cover for Rico, one thing id for sure we wont be able to leave just one player back for corners

Not sure I get the clamour for Janelt playing there, doesn’t strike me as particularly quick for the overlap etc.
The overlap responsibility would go to the right side. For the last year, Dalsgaard has held back and allowed Henry to go forward, effectively holding a back 3. Time to let Henrik off the leash.

Every cloud 😉
Indeed. Sometimes when a manager's hand is forced to do something he wouldn't otherwise have done, someone unexpected can come to the fore. I have no idea who that player may be or the position, but sometimes, youth can be the way forward. Inexperience can be costly, but youth can be immune to nerves and pressure. Step forward Mr. Pressley. I reckon he would be a handful for quite a few defenders if he put himself about a bit.

Been dreading reading this thread since Saturday and that is just the news I didn't want to hear. Not back until early May then at the earliest. Feel gutted for Rico. Get well soon

Massive blow that he’s injured for a couple of months. Sublime player 9/10 every game imo. Surprised he didn’t pick up a injury earlier I feel we’ve really overused him mainly this season considering his injury woes in the past. Why we didn’t sign cover in January was a bit daft even more so considering we sent out Thompson on loan our only other sensible LB option....
