The crazy world of Doctor Evil's West Ham Wanderers!
O'Brien is our first choice RB.
Did you see him at right back again Villa? Even Avram didn't repeat that mistake. Faye's prep has been disrupted anyway so Reid is needed to partner Tomkins. So it is O'Brien or...
2311, that's why the picture says no alternative! Dear God, there's not a lot of information to take on board in this thread is there?
O'Brien is clearly BFS's No.1 choice at right back. If he needs to replace O'Brien during a game then Tomkins can go there. Do NOT want to see Reid in ANY position in our defence
Maybe he's going 3 at the back? As HF goes Wanderers, maybe Sam's gone Crazy?
who needs Faubert when we have Winston Reid!? he's worked outstandingly with Tomkins this pre-season. give the Kiwi a chance this season Big Sam. go New Zealand!
We are in the championship now, Tomkins and Reid can both play RB if they were needed at this level.O'Brien will start at RB.
Why do we need an alternative at this moment in time? O'Brien is fit. Do you expect us to go into the season with 3 RB's? What team has 3 specialist right backs? That would be crazy, Spence would never get a game!!Faubert is out for about a week, aslong as O'Brien doesn't get a freak injury before then, we're fine. Tomkins can cover, he has played well there before.
Hmmm. First of all, Faubert is out for just 10 days providing the medics have got it right, it may be longer. Secondly, O'Brien does not have a good record with injuries. Thirdly, Faye is only just coming back from injury and is 33. Fourthly, we have not retained JL Samuel after his trial so have NO experienced cover at left back. Now THAT overall is a frightening situation. Never mind injuries, this is a rough and tumble division and players will pick up yellow cards so you have to factor in suspensions. We have struggled for two seasons because of poor full back cover and the situation is no better going in to this season. Ilunga is injury prone. O'Brien is injury prone. Faye has picked up an injury PRE SEASON. Faubert is Faubert. Reid looked rank last season. How long before Tomkins is the only defender in the team?
01:08 (23:11) - "3 specialist right backs"? Since when has Faubert been a specialist at anything? Especially RB! (unless of course you're refering to sleeping on the bench? Now that was pretty special!) Spence on the other hand IS and should be prefered cover for O'brien, otherwise what was the point in giving him a new contract? However, to loan him out is not a problem for me, BUT ONLY if we can recall him in an emergency! Can we?
Quite Dave. Except we already have an emergency! I would have Spence on the bench for the Cardiff game!
