I got the impression that these were mostly spirals, but that toward the end of the article there was a blip about looking for elliptical blob galaxies, that would be different from the ancient ellipticals that aren't forming stars, but would simply be elliptical because new gas was fallin in on them from all angles at a steady clip, and that no disk had yet formed. To my mind, this would tend to look like the early irregular star-forming galaxies we see around z=6, not like elliptical blobs, but I'm just a well read hack.

Shouldn't we be expecting irregular (as in non-geometric) galaxies?
