I'm not sure about Coulson as a winger, if we are still looking to play 433 I would rather have Coulson as a left back than in the front 3.

Also I reckon it's fair to say that Coulson has been one of the stand out performers this season and most of them games has had him at left back.

What do others think?

Tend to agree with you on this as he seems better with the ball the longer the run he goes on.

Coulson can only get better but sadly he falls into the category of being "missed" when unavailable

I thought Coulson was decent in the last game at Charlton as a LW. I certainly looked like there was a lot more action on our left side and he was available for the quick counter attacks. Get Roberts on the right and we finally have pace and players wanting to go past opponents on either wing.

I know the club are also looking at the overseas market this summer as there is some interesting free agents but all depends on what league we are in.

From the Danish league there are two decent players on free transfers that could be very interesting. One 27 year old aussie Mustafa Amini. Very dynamic CM. Great engine, can run with ball and has a great pass on him. The other is 21 year old Ghanaian defender Abdul Mumin however I think he will be targeting a league like Holland or Belgium. Both would be good additions to our squad at very low cost.

Nice to see Ayala& Friend  back in training. If football does return next month these are probably the last games Ayala will play for the club unless we somehow manage to negotiate a new deal with him.

You should email the club! If they are doing their due diligence as scouts, they'll at least look at them.

But where would I send it? Can't really find a suitable e-mail adress on the website. Besides DZ would hate me if we actually signed a player from the Danish league.

Ayala wife confirms during a Q&A on her Instagram that his future remains undecided. States they moved down south simply because they had outgrown they old home and if Ayala does get a new deal they will maybe get a house closer to Yarm.

I think it's fair to assume he is not staying despite his wife's diplomatic answer. There would be no need movd south just to come back here if he was staying.

I think the Ayala boat has already sailed, personally. We know we can't offer him anything decent and he will know that too. He's got a young family and will want to make the most out of his final years as a pro footballer.

He's wealthy enough to have multiple homes, and I'm sure he doesn't plan to live on Teesside after retiring.

He's only 5 or 6 years left in his football career, he's probably planning for the future.

Saying that, I'll be surprised if he stays.

I did think this before Covid however now almost every club in the championship will be struggling financially so I don't really think they'll be many clubs that can offer him a deal that truly blows us out the water!

Would be very very surprised if he plays another game for us being honest

But then we will be in the same boat, mate. The offer on the table from us will have undoubtedly been based on COVID-19 never being around. We will almost certainly be reducing those terms, just the same way others will. And if it's about making the most of his final few years to get the most money at a good club, I still don't think we will be that club.

I know it's been said on here repeatedly that Ben Gibson is re-signing for us, and that's he's been training with us, so it's not a shock, but it's interesting that the club are including and naming him in the training photos now.

    • But anyway back to football...obviously I don't want any clubs to go bust, but I do hope this pandemic, serves as a bit of a bubble burster. For far too long the majority of football clubs have been run at unsustainable levels. 
    • Annoyingly it's a mix of both of those first sentences you've written. The Government have gotten as much right as they have wrong, and at the same time some portions of the public do need to shoulder some of the blame. It goes hand in hand.
    • 😬 I don't mean to tar you with a brush here AR but: a) NB4 hasn't said anything about being a Labour supporter (and in fact, just above has dismissed such thoughts) b) Discussing a frivolous spend on something unnecessary is not 'Labour-tinted' and only makes you sound like you take a tribal stance against a political party In my opinion, the repainted plane served no purpose whatsoever and it 100% was done to 'better represent us globally', so it is as NB4 said, it was ego-driven, to make us look good. There are plenty of better ways to represent yourself as a country globally than a repainted plane. It's neither left, right nor centre to say that £900k of paint was a dumb idea executed during a time people were sat at home living off state-funded furlough schemes, wondering whether they'll be let go at any point soon.
    • It’s ok, we haven’t finished discussing wingbacks yet👌
    • I’m certainly not knocking the government for the support schemes, I’ve benefitted myself from the self employed grant, I’m just hoping that it will be continued as I’ve done just eight days work since lockdown.    My argument is, if governments can find money to fight unnecessary wars (the two listed above in particular) it can find the resources to keep the economy going.  I’m neither a Tory or Labour voter, but I do think the Tories acted too slowly and that the Labour Party have been ineffective in opposition, although I think part of the reason for that is that Labour don’t want to oppose the measures too strongly for fear of splitting opinion and causing disruption amongst the general public.    As for football league clubs, it’s not their fault, but the fact that mediocre players are earning more in a week than the PM earns in a year does lead me to question the way clubs are run financially. In a lot of cases it’s all a massive gamble to get promoted and as my old man used to say if you gamble, you have to be prepared to lose.
