In a sea of dross he shone out as absolutely woeful. Whatever did anyone see in him? Shite.

He's dross.  Just as bad as all of the other dreadful left backs we've had in recent years.  Rubbish.

He reminds me of a Steve Staunton, but without defensive ability, attacking ability, shooting
and bottle.

Waste of money.

That money should've been invested in a cliff top apartment, on  the Amalfi coast, for me.

He's never a left back, hes soft, lacks any defensive positional sense and cant defend. Despite all that I still think he offers us something going forward, left wing back or left midfielder maybe but no chance is he a left back.

You can play Target as LB as long as you build in protection for his defensive frailties.
We donít, we leave him exposed.
There are some games he should not start.

You also need pace and a good engine to play wing back. Heís slow as all hell and appears as fit as an asthmatic chain smoker.

So itís the asthmatic Lilly liveried chain smoker or the bloke who plays like he has put his boots on the wrong feet.
Tough call.

Load of shit. Smith basically said heís unfit the other day. Defensive liability and not even that good offensively imho certainly not enough to offset his other many weaknesses. Heís one 10th the player Guilbert is for 3 x the money.

He does not look great. Like most of our players he doesnít look like he does any fitness work.

Saints fans on his side of the pitch must have been bowling over with laughter yesterday at the sight of their discombobulated former player and his new team.

Surely Suso could have found someone from the continent twice as good for half the price.

Based on his other finds? I'm not so sure.

Targett specialises in getting himself out of position, and then running back into said position at about the speed I reach when headed for the front door on a Monday morning.

He is not the only one, but he definitely looks unfit, too.
