Yesterday was living proof that 'yes left back really is a problem'!! Joao Cancelo whilst great going forward and better at RB. was not great at defending and he kept drifting inwards allowing Mo Salad to go on his outside. A natural left back will always force the attacking player into the corner or out wide. Try the kid Wilson-Esbrand he may be a revelation? Failing that, January is a must for a LB and Striker......CTID

Does anybody have the stats to show how many of our goals conceded come from our left hand side ?

It does appear that there is a definite bias towards us being attacked from that side of the pitch .

I thought we might've tried 3 at the back allowing cancelo to play further forward. So stones dias laporte with walker/cancelo further forward or even walker in that 3 which is a role he's played for England to add a bit of pace. Who knows maybe we will at some point what do I know.
