Right. You need two good wingbacks to play a 3 CB system, Tolkin is fine on the left, but I dont think Edwards has the speed for a wingback role. And Harper doesnt look good enough defensively yet to rely on.

Straight up, I don't even like Tolkin at LWB. I really think that we would be better served using him and Edwards (or possibly now Duncan) as just regular fullbacks with Reyes and Long as the CB's. That is a top 3 backline in the league IMO.

Reyes back to the bench. Another moronic foul when he came in. The guy is skilled just seems to have occasional very stupid lapses when he plays. He had the opponent pinned to the sideline where the most he could get was a throw, at best. He then obviously pushed him in the back right in front of the ref, like a complete fool to give him a free kick and nearly earned a yellow.

So Dylan goes to the bench, not Sean? 

 

This also indirectly means Edwards is probably gone, since Duncan would start at RB most likely.

I think Strubers optimal backline would have the Neali on the bench

Tolkin Reyes Long Edwards Duncan

Still need a LB cover though

And the above would be decent enough IMO, esp with LB cover

Unless he wants Duncan as cover for both flanks, which, from what I remember from previous Duncan LB experiments, is not optimal

Yeah, Neali on the bench would be ideal, but it looks like Struber specifically mentioned Dylan. Your lineup though above is ideal with Neali on the bench. In case of Tolkin injury, I think Duncan can cover LB pretty well, and then Sean can step in off the bench with Edwards moving to the right or Dylan going to the right.
