We played cautiously to cover for the defensive frailties imo.
Stronger defence hopefully means more freedom further up.
Surely Flannigan or Baldwin must be off?.... or we've come to an agreement with Loovens over the remainder of his contract?
Already got 5 CB's imagine Loovens will be paid off and possibly another.
Depends if we’re going with 3 CBs this season. I’d say 5 in a squad for a long season would be canny.
In that case, just Loovens out will do.
Yeah agreed, we would need a new right back and a left back if we are playing this system though.If he wants the flexibility to play 5 at the back then we need a minimum 5 centre halves though. Hopefully its Loovens paid up and then we have 5 for the season with McLaughlin able to fill in at CB too if required too.
But worse than the three teams that went up and significantly so. Go figure.
Maybe both. You only need four really if we're playing 4 at the back. McLoughlin can come across too can't he, so there's cover.
