Statistically (if you believe them), Johnson and Spence have made the same amount of tackles (5), the same amount of interceptions (3) too. Spence has a slightly lower tackle %. They've both blocked the same amount of crosses too (1).
Johnson has a pass completion of 50%, Spence has a pass completion of 65%. They've both made the same amount of key passes (1). They've both made the same amount of successful crossed (1), but Spence has a successful cross % almost double Johnson's.
Just some unbiased stats, to show actually statistically they are similar as it stands.
well, that's where you hope that an experienced Manager like Warnock, picks the right team
McNair is also our best LCB at the moment. I thought his switch with Howson worked well on Saturday, allowed us to overload the right hand side.
Just wait until until a couple of defeats and people will talk about trying square pegs in round holes with Dijksteel as CB.
Dijksteel has had 2 decent performances at CB as has Mcnair so to say they are better CB's than Fry is completely laughable and a joke. I agree Fry isnt a left sided CB and he would probably agree. (but again here comes the criticism of our homegrown players - absolute joke).
Wait until McNair and Dijksteel come up against a striker like Denney, Keifer Moore and you will see exactly why they are not CB's.
McNair is our best CM imo and wasted as CB, that showed again at the weekend.
Difference of opinions but Johnson is creating a lot more chances and is a lot better defensively than Spence imo.
