We’ve had a left back situation since as long as I can remember. Peters was as close as we’ve come to sorting it, but even then he wasn’t ideal. It probably comes down to the fact that flexible LBs who are great defenders and super fast and accurate wingers who overlap with ease are as a rare as hen’s teeth. The few really decent ones who are relatively immune to criticism in one of those two key areas of the role, are snapped up by the top clubs. Clubs like Stoke, whether EPL or Championship, will always struggle to get a really good LB.
No! We should also have a back up left back in case Fox breaks his leg in the first game of the season, or laater for that matter. Or if Fox turns out to be a Ward...
If Tymon can produce his the quality from the last game of the season...Fox should be back up!
Tymon can reproduce that any time you want, but you're forgetting one thing: he didn't have to do any defending in that game, which might just give some a distorted view of just how good he is - or not, as it were.
