So despite having a decent young left back who has all the attributes to be a really good player he is overlooked in favour of playing Iwobi at lwb and Davies rwb.
Really concerned with some of Carlo's team selections.
Hope it works out as well as iwobi's switch last week but I have my doubts and feel for the youngster.

Square pegs round holes!
And I’m sure Delph has played right back for city!
Unbalanced and players not looking confident.

CA starting to annoy me playing people out of position. Not sure why he he hasn't brought Bernard on earlier. Obvious we needed more creativity. I thought iwobi was poor on the left today.

That dross today is on Ancelotti. Playing 2 players as wing backs who shouldn’t be anywhere near the first 11 meant we were playing 5 at the back, at home! I know people say we shouldn’t criticise him because of his pedigree and experience but Leeds pulled our pants down good and proper today. If it wasn’t for short arms it could have been 4 or 5. We just don’t have enough players who can run hard and fast for a whole game to compete. Forget skill, we do have plenty of that. Training needs to be on fitness and closing down. We were lucky against Fulham last week. 4 loses out of 5 now, we’ll be bottom half of the table in the next 2 or 3 games.

{Ed025's Note - selections are baffling to say the least MJB, i dont hold much store by reputations its the now that matters, its early days yet but we do need to see progress mate..

Not going to get on Ancelotti back but he baffles me at times. Iwobi deserved a shirt today at rwb seeing as he did a good job there last weekend. Why he is then switched to the left when we have nkonku (probably the wrong spelling! ) Is just weird. The lad has looked unbelievable when he has played and is good going forward down the left therefore surely compliments a back 3? Davies and sigurdsson should be training with marine or southport as far as I'm concerned. Where is gordon? He was our best performer end of last season. Can understand why posters are annoyed. what do I know lol.

Mjb. Leeds probably the fittest side in prem. No surprise that Guardian has City and his previous sides at a similar level (worships the ground Belsay walks) . Make Alan the Team Captain and we will see a difference. (Coleman Club Captain) .

Interesting selection by Carlo it looks like he has assessed Gordon, Nkunku and Branthwaithe and decided they are not ready for the first team. If you then look at what's left then it really narrows the options back four is basically a non starter so a back three makes more sense. The question then is do you put Iwobi on the right and Delphe on the left or Iwobi on the left and Davies on the right either way its a gamble. I would have gone for the sam e starting line up to be honest as Iwobi has played on the left quite a bit and does look comfortable on the left. Unless Kenny is injured then it looks like he is not in Carlos plans for the future. On the three younger players do you throw them into a side low on confidence not playing well and hope it doesn't destroy their confidence or do you protect them and only play them when the side has hit a more consistent positive form. Either way Carlo has some difficult decisions to make and to be fair the senior players are not making his job any easier with their inconsistent form. One positive from the match is Alan looks to be getting fitter and looks a very good player indeed.

The question is what is the better option, a player that is natural in the position or arguably playing a better player out of their natural position hoping they can adapt.
Nkounku is for me the best option at left back, he can only get better with game time as is Kenny at right back which was a position they new needed cover before the season started but did not resolve as it looked like Kenny was leaving!
