So Allardyce has signed a big lump for the back, and is offering to buy any striker with more than five goals to his name, but the most glaring hole in the team is still being ignored. When Taylor is fit we have balance on the left but when he is injured - and when isn't he? - who do we have to play there? Answer: nobody.
It is a ridiculous situation but nothing is being done about it.
So who plays wide left at Portsmouth? Probably Baldock and that is a ridiculous waste of the boy's ability. Get your finger out Allardyce!
