I’ve advocated for some time that Fitzwater be dropped as the “least good” centre half for Martin but I wonder if the long term plan is to go to three at the back.
If they were to go Fitz Martin Guthrie at the back I think it would open up more options further up the pitch.
For example they could go with a system similar to the dingles with a 3-4-3 formation.
when Whitney signed Leahy and Devlin it was actually to fit a 3 at the back with wing backs system and considering both players are much better going forward than they are defensively I think that system would eradicate a lot of the gripes about their defending. With Dobson and Osbourne/Edwards/Kinsella in the middle it also opens up a huge number of options for the front three. You could push the wing backs on and play Ronan behind Ferrier and Cook. You could play Ferrier left Cook through the middle and Zeli/Morris on the right. If you wanted to burn somebody with pace you could play one up top and have Ginnelly and Zeli either side.
