Looks like no left backs on the way

 

Martina's a RB/LB after Allardyce converted him to cover Baines' injury last season he played 20 odd games in that position and did alright.

I imagine if Martina does come in, that ends any further recruitment for defenders. He covered for Leighton Baines at left-back despite being a right-sider naturally. He covers a fair few positions for us if needed.

If we land Besic and Freeman,

 

Besic, Freeman, Howson, Clayton, McNair, Wing

 

Has to be one of the best pool of CMs in the league?

 

You forgot Leadbitter !

 

Leadbitter's too busy pointing and shouting at the lifeguard to be considered part of the pool.

Aye... went to put the squad together and that did concern me. Unless he's considering Downing at LWB in the 3-5-2 an alternative?

 

He did pretty well there tbf

The Byram thing is interesting though because apparently West Ham only want to sell him not loan him out, which is what Forest are offering. So maybe we're buying Byram for RB and loaning Martina as cover for both full back positions, he could be this years Martin Crainie

    • Yeah it’s not the same scenario as your Aunty Doris that lived in sheltered accommodation in Redcar with just a portable tv a fan heater and a pile of Gardner’s World magazines for company, that pines for her recently departed husband, complains about the food and doesn’t get on with the rest of the residents, especially that Maureen who drinks Campari on Friday afternoons and insists on being a member of every club and committee going. 
    • I wonder how many goals will be Djed Spence's fault today, and those that aren't, still are 🤔😭
    • I kind of feel sorry for him too, he's been sold the vision with his contract under Woodgate, sold as part of the future of this club. And I'm a big Hayden Coulson fan, I'd definitely prefer it if he could show what he could do as a left back as I think he'd have a better chance of making it here. But in a team filled with inconsistent plodders, you don't take out one of your brightest lights to accommodate someone else. Last season the shoe was on the other foot, we weren't gonna drop Coulson for Bola for the sake of it. If he's gonna play for Warnock, he's got to find a way to make himself useful in a team with Bola in it. James Husband had the exact same issue when he was brought here, he had to find a way to make a name for himself with George Friend in the side, he didn't do that so he had to leave.
    • I'm already like many of our players...thinking of Summer holidays, (staycation obviously). I'll be watching these remaining games more out of idle interest, than any real hope or expectation. I'd like to see Coulson given some games, along with any promising U23s, just to see how we play with some different names in the team. Obviously (hopefully?) it'd be good for team morale if we won, or got a result of any kind, but I won't be that bothered if we help Barnsley's play-off bid.  
    • But the point is he's not gonna get played there because the player in that position is actually playing well? Unless you want us to play 2 left backs to accommodate him?
