So when is Jordan Spence going to step up to the first team exactly? I keep reading that the guy has bags of potential and he certainly does not lack in confidence in his own ability, describing himself as a "right-back or centre-half and a...composed defender brought up obviously playing football at West Ham" and claiming "one of my key attributes is that I'm quite quick and I look to get forward when the time's right."
Bloody hell, isn't that exactly what we need? A tall, quick, footballing playing right back with the ability to get forward? Why did we keep messing around with Faubert exactly?
The lad came on as a sub against Man City in the last game of last season and didn't look out of place to me. But the club has just announced that he has been sent out on loan to that Mecca of football, Bristol City. Why? If Jacobsen pulls up lame, wouldn't Spence be a better bet than want away Faubert?
