One area of the pitch we have loads of cover for tbh, yes does make us a bit more susceptible to pace though

Dummett is deceptively fast, one of the fastest at the club.

Should just play Almiron or Allan there, they would probably get 15 goals from centreback I would imagine.

While not wanting to see any player injured this could be a bit of luck for Steve Bruce. He was never going to drop Lascelles being the club captain but Lejeune is just a far superior player and far better distribution from the back. The front three will benefit hugely from this.

He needs to displace Clark first though, he’s done well that lad when called upon, in fairness.

Can't drop Clark ATM.

If Lejeune is back then Clark is a good option in the middle in the interim. Ideally working towards a Lejeune-Fernandez-Schar back three - and with Willems and Yedlin in form, that looks decent (objectively)

I think he’ll be a bigger miss than some realise, for all his flaws on the ball, he will leave a big gap back there in the air, at set pieces, at leading and with his pace and recovery getting back. He’s their best defender in terms of just defending easily. No-one else fills me with as much confidence in terms of strictly defending.

While he has no particular stand out abilities,  he doesn't have any glaring weaknesses either.  he is a very decent defender, the leadership in the backline will be missed. Can't see Schar or Lejeune screaming at Dummett for being his usual 20 yards out of place

we'll miss his leadership and presence if nothing else imo, not sure we have anyone else in the squad close to him in that respect

Not sure it was even that last night. The balance was all wrong. Clark on the left of the three, Schar on the right, Fernandez in the centre organising. I don’t think Clark is good enough to lead a defence but he’s been more than fine when he’s played where he has been.

We hardly talk about him much here judging by how far back this thread is, but he really deserves a lot of praise for his performance most of this season, it annoys me to see players like Tyrone Mings getting ahead of him in the national team when he's been preforming the way he has been for us.

Still think the forum hates him for his Ashley comments. Before then he was loved.

So uncomfortable on the ball when pressured. Don’t think he’ll ever play for England.

Cracking defender and leader, mind.

I’m still undecided. I like him and want him to do well, but god he’s no good on the ball.

Playing next to a morphing into Jaap Stam, Fernandez makes a big difference to Lascelles imo. Class performance though. Alongside even more quality he could actually find himself in the England picture.
Chris Hughton, simply the best manager we had from 2009-2010.

He is a fantastic defender like. Better than Mings imo who has managed caps lately. I'd also say he's a better defender than Maguire so...

Aye. I don’t think Maguire offers a great deal more than wor Jamal tbh, who I think has been fantastic for us for the most part. Really grew as a player under Rafa

I also feel like Lascelles is the type of character who if he got capped it would actually improve him as a player, both in stature and confidence. Some cower a little under the pressure, I think Jamaal would have the correct mentality for it and we'd see the benefit.

Don’t think he’s anywhere near good enough for England. A big part of a centre-back role with England the majority of matches is being able to step out from defence confidently and pick a pass against teams sat with two deep defensive lines.

Mings, Stones, Maguire all loads better than him like? At passing maybe, defending nah.

Lascelles has actually added carrying the ball out of defence to his game of late, when the opportunity arises.

Given though, how we have next to no possession and don't ever have to worry about teams sitting deep against us, he's hardly going to be doing it multiple times a game.

His technical game and positioning has improved a lot IMO.
