Right Full Back position
by David Taylor (U14420137) 21 August 2010
Hi one and all. My first ever contribution to 606 and it concerns the right back position. We now appear to have a squad of players capable of competing with the top 4. One concern I have with the squad is not having what I would describe as an established proper right back. I accept that we have players who can play there in Richards, Zab & Boeteng but I see them as defensive utility players. I would have thought RM would have brought in a specialist right back. By that, I mean someone who truly knows the position inside out & has played there for the majority of their career. We currently give far too many free kicks away on that side and this area is likely to be targetted by many teams as a weakness. I know I'm getting on a bit now & maybe starting to 'lose it' a little, but if memory serves me right, SWP played right back for a spell when he first broke into the first team. With all our options up front, maybe Shaun could be converted into a competent full back - he seems to have the right attributes.
