CT I completely agree with you and said as much but you are not going to win this argument. 

Dijksteel has had 2 okay performances at CB likewise McNair has but they will get found out against the likes of Deeney, Pukki and Moore. 

I am sick to death of seeing our team trying square pegs in round holes and completely unbalancing the rest of the team.

Fry CB and Dijksteel at RB - Its really not hard to see.

He can't whinge at having not a good enough squad whilst playing players out of their natural position.

To be fair you have no idea if they will be found out, they are both young enough and have the attributes to make a few positions their own.

This idea that players need to be finished articles before they can play for us is rubbish, we are a mid level championship side at best. We are picking off scraps and trying to improve players

I notice Harry Kewell has put David Wheater on the naughty step and sent him to play with the under 23s

He might be available very cheap

Any interest ?

and we are back on course!

You’re forgetting we bought, then sold, the best winger in the world at the moment.

He doesn't even play on the wing for Wolves half the time, Traore is a freak of nature and has done marvellously but not a chance is he the best winger in the world

Is this sarcasm? 

Whilst i accept Adama has come on leaps and bounds at Wolves he has never at any point been the best winger in the world. And until he performs at the highest level fairly regularly neither will he be.

Performing for Wolverhampton in PL and Europa League does not make you the best in world. There are wingers out there doing it on biggest stage in world football which Adama as of yet has not graced.

I bet you’re fun at parties.

Well wingers in this day and age are more like support strikers in a front 3 because everyone plays 4321 or an equivalent but any of Mane, Sterling, Salah, Ronaldo, Sancho, Son, Gnabry, Mahrez

As I said he plays RWB as much as anything and doesn't offer close to the assists or goals of others

Totally agree with that list mate and you can add leroy sane to that list if he has overcome his injury.

Imo football is all about levels and until Adama performs at highest legel he can't be classed as the best of the rest.

We got one season out of him and he was the only creative outlet in a average side. His game has come on massively since his move to Wolves so lets not over exaggerate his time here. It has always been an ongoing issue for Boro over a period of years, unless you're trying to claim that one season fixed over ten years of issues I don't see how that's relevant,

He was talking about Downing anyway.

Depending on who you include, Sancho or Sterling would be up there I imagine.  Statistically speaking, they are light years ahead of Traore.  The lad at Leicester had a better season than him last year I think, Harvey Barnes.  I assume people don't think he's the best winger in the world though.  I think Traore might crack the top 20 as it stands but that's about it.  Needs to kick on again if he wants to be discussed in those sort of terms.  I hope he makes the right move when Wolves cash in on him.

Six months really, not even a full season.

That would be quite nasty of him.
