it's a definite option. I get the feeling that whoever comes on will have a bigger say than whoever starts

Yeah it's not going to be easy, and we seemingly can't get ahead early on at the moment. Bobby's been very good mostly with his subs knowing who and when will make an impact, hopefully that carries on.
There are only two things I can't stand in this world. People who are intolerant of other people's cultures... and the Dutch.

I'd rather Stones played. He hasn't out a foot wrong at CB.

I think he's looked quite poor tbh, potential is there, but he's not ready.

Him against Carroll is a nightmare waiting to happen.

Part of me thinks, ''fuck it, we're not going to get 4th, so let's just give Stones some more game time in the top flight''. But Ram's point about Carroll is fair. They will just target Carroll on Stones with long balls, and it could be carnage.

Is Alcaraz any good in the air?
Jeff: That's not the way to win.
Kathie: Is there a way to win?
Jeff: There's a way to lose more slowly.

He'll have the expirience to deal with him better than stones would

that was my reasoning. Be more comfortable with alcaraz and distin. Don't forget it's not just carroll it's that snide cunt Nolan as well

He done well against Stoke and Peter Crouch, I'm sure Stones would be fine.

Like Shogun said, Stones made his first Prem start against the long ball team par-excellence. Think he'll be fine.

Crouch isn't the same as carroll and Nolan

Do people think that Stones seems to have better positional sense when playing at centre back as apposed to right back?

Main worry is they rely heavily on their wide man getting good delivery into carroll and in general this season we seem really slow to stop crosses coming in.

I think Stones is fine with a high ball and battling with a striker to win a ball in the air - he's fairly strong and he's certainly tall enough. Alcaraz is fairly short and doesn't have the same leap as other undersized CBs like Jags so I think he would struggle against Carroll. Plus we have no idea if he is fit or not, hasn't he been fatigue for a month and a half now?

Stones would be my choice - I think where he seems to have struggled is on balls over the top where he gets caught out of position but defending crosses should be fine for a defender of his experience as it's just about the first thing you learn.

That and he sometimes goes a little too Messi when he brings the ball out of defence - something which I think in time will prove to be an asset but right now he doesn't seem to know when the right time to carry the ball forward is and when he should make the easy pass.
