Sounds like Funes Mori will be stepping in to left back once he's fit, rather than buy an actual left back.

Not back till March is he, think that's back in training not first team contention, so doubt this is true tbh

We need a Fukkin left back. It's insane that we don't have one yet. I can't even Fukkin fathom how the people in charge can actually watch this shit and not go and buy a left back. It's really depressing. It's like running a printing business and refusing to buy the yellow ink cartridge. Like what the fuck??

We also need a stud centre back. And a stud central mid-fielder who can link us with our forwards. Cause schneiderlin has lost his nuts and doesn't give a fuck. McCarthy is gone, gueye is a pure DM, and we can't rely on Davies because he's a kid.

Fair assessment but I would like to see Benji getting some more game time, that boy impressed me during Unsies reign

I think he started off well but the pace of the game was starting to tell by his last few appearances where he was being by passed too easily.

Its a tough position for a young player as experience is key for knowing where to be and when.

Hopefully he keeps developing though as hed be ideal as a sitter in a 4-3-3.

There's talk of it. Signing Mata would make great sense for our squad as he's better than all twelve of our current number 10's so we could sell eight or nine of them and buy a few left backs.
    

I'm only here for the cladding/Bramley Moore Dock updates

Wheres this Mata talk?

Like him as a player but his age profile would be poor given we already have Sigurdsson, Walcott and Rooney in that bracket.

Also been playing regularly, so despite Sanchez coming, hed only be one place down.

I cant see Mata happening and if we are then this obsession with signing peripheral players is beyond a joke.

We need a strong spine to the side to build a formation around, not just signing players we hope might somehow create something due to a bit of individual skill, without it being a conscious way of attacking as a team.

So is Baines done then?

I've never seen anything in Funes Mori to suggest he can play left back. He has a tenuous enough grasp on his natural position.

Think he meant if he was fit before Baines then he would stand in at LB until Baines is fit.

Isn't garbutt just almost certainly shit. No one wants to give him a chance. Not Martinez, not
Koeman and not allardyce.
He's probably crap

All we really know is that 2 managers disagree. Think he must be well short to not get and chance under these circumstances

I think we probably thought well wait till the summer for a left back and let the season just peter out. A few more games without a win though, entirely possible, and Sam will be worrying about his survival bonus. Then it will get grim to watch, guaranteed.

Garbutt took a few good corners once

That's about it
