It looks as if Matty Taylor has been landed and it is refreshing to report the capture of a natural left footer. At last the issue of balance is being addressed - and it is about time!
The question is, where will Sam play him? Will it be on the left of midfield or will Taylor play at left back as he used to back in his early Pompey days?
Hopefully, we will now retain Ilunga and Taylor will be used on the left of midfield, enabling the former Bolton man to cover the Congolese left back when he ranges forward. The only concern with that combination is the lack of height as neither Ilunga nor Taylor are giants.
