Friend said a recent interview that he was actually signed as a CB, but got moved to left back either due to injury or a sale, I can't remember which.

Dijksteel is a RCB in a 3, he's not a CB in the sense that you'd whack him in a back 4 and be happy with it. He's a CDM that got moved to RB due to his athleticism and has about one full season of experience there too, so it could be argued that he doesn't necessarily have his best position nailed down yet. As mentioned by @LinoJo3 the RCB probably actually suits him because it's the blend of DM and RB.

"Bielsa has often converted midfielders into versatile defenders, and a prime example of this was the 2010 World Cup. He used Waldo Ponce as a dominant central defender and slotted two quick defensive-minded midfielders either side of him in Gonzalo Jara and Gary Medel."

So, Roberts. Not done yet?

+1? Any rumours?

Not that I think we should be busting a nut to bring in a ton, but all v quiet this evening for transfer deadline day... Are the club just better at keeping it under wraps? Or is our business done?

ITK's... Where you all hiding?

Somebody has actually reported me 😀

First of all, I'm sorry if anybody was offended by me posting this emoji 🖕.  I hadn't realised that an emoji like this 🖕 could really be seen as offensive, because of it's cartoon-like nature.  As a rule, I don't take the emojis that seriously, and when posting this 🖕it's not meant to be taken at face value.  I have a brusque manner on here sometimes but it's mostly just an act, and such things as posting this 🖕 are meant only in a joking way.  Secondly, giving Will the bird is actually allowed under Magna Carta, and if anything it should be encouraged.

And so, in conclusion 🖕🖕🖕

Sorry... I did it as a laugh 😂

It's not deadline day for us.

The domestic window doesn't shut till the 16th.

Yes you're right.  Argentina won their first 4 games then got beat by Germany, that obviously means the system they played was wrong.  My mistake.

Not sure how this impacts on Bielsa's management of Chile at that world cup.

Lol, I wasn't saying that.  I'm just saying they got battered against a good side with that same way of playing.  I doubt it makes any difference to us either way.

Wasn't he the Argentina manager then?  In that case Mr Tobermory, it is my mistake sir.  Please disregard my posts above 👍

    • Is it hard to find good managers that want to play good football?  It would seem to be a weird thing, for me anyway, if all of the on field progress made over the last 30/40 years hasn't lead to a different way of thinking in terms of coaching in this country.  But go foreign or whatever, that makes no difference to me.  It's just about what the manager believes in, and what we as a club are striving for.
    • 😭😭😭 Well aren't you a little ray of sunshine 🙂
    • Oh I agree with that.  But the manager is an integral part of that and we currently have the wrong one for the vision I'd like us to have, that's all.
    • The thing is though, once it actually comes to ‘farting around the championship’, most fans won’t accept it and will once again want the manager out. It’s all well and good wanting to play nice football etc. But at the end of the day, results is what matters and what pleases fans. For what it’s worth I wouldn’t mind going for a long term vision, but as long as we are competing for the play offs. 
    • You're wasting your time if you think Gibson has the ability to change things for the better. This is about as good as it gets.
