Foley was god-awful tonight. I'd honestly put him in the XI.

We need a huge defensive rejig. Culling half of a backline that has just conceded 3 in successive home games seems reasonable.

I'd be tempted to stick him in at right back and play Foley in midfield in place of Jonsson - at least until Henry's back from suspension.

I think anyone would have struggled against Bellamy in his current form

This entirely. Foley was dreadful tonight.

Great news. Welcome back Zub's!

(I would suggest playing Zubar in place of Henry - he was a defensive midfielder for Caen when he interested Arsenal, after all -but I think Frimpong and Zubar would probably run into each other at full speed after about 25 seconds).

Aye, he was - though I trust him to come good (I'd move him more because Jonsson was poor and doesn't look ready).

Agreed. It is the worst I ever seen Foley tonight. His passing was all over the place.

Still think Foley is a better defender than Zubar

Rather have Bassong there

Yeah. I'd only do this as a temporary measure to cover for Henry. But at the moment I'd prefer Zubar at right-back to Jonsson in midfield. Assuming Zubar's fit, that is.

I'd like to see Foley in the 2 with Frimpong and Zubar at RB. Two DM's who will get forward when we're in possession and though I think Foley is a better RB I'd feel more confident in him with Foley giving him some cover when we're defending.

Zubar - Bassong - Johnson - Ward

Foley - Frimpong

Kites - O'Hara - Jarvis

The big problem we have had with both Zubar and Foley is that they have probably both been thrown into the team before they were ready fitness wise.

I'd agree with this Mugwump - there's an argument to be put forwards for resting Foley for a game if Zubar is fit.

So do I and no doubt Zubar will be injured again within a month and that is why I would offload him in the summer, irrespective of which league we are in!

Foley's definitely better by a long way!

He was very poor last night. Don't remember seeing him struggle so much, but no was that great and he had a better excuse than most as he was up against one of the best players in the league on current form.

As said, Foley in Eggert's place and Zubar at right back is an option if Zubar is actually fully fit, which I doubt. Zubar's defending scares the life out of me.

Sorry, i like zubes but he is a crock. I'll give him 2 games before he's out injured again

I'm a Foley fan but he was poor last night, constantly backing off and panicky clearances. He does have a good understanding with Kightly but this was outweighed by some dreadful first touches. Cant help thinking if Zubar had played that Liverpool would not have been allowed to dominate down the right, he's a big old unit is Zubar and wouldn't think twice about a crunching tackle.....probably why he gets injured so much.
