I didnít think he was any more than adequate in his general play but what did impress me were the forward positions he took up, it meant we had width and numbers much higher up the field than we have had previously.

Promising.

Agreed. He was rarely tested defensively which is ideal when you're making your home debut. In front of him both Conor and Jack were busy and helped out a lot, a massive improvement on the left side (compared to Taylor/AEG) which allowed him to advance every now and then. His determined run leading to the VAR goal was great to see. He can also swing a decent cross.

The free kick attempt he had was woeful but he's up in the penalty box in the 94 minute and lashed home the winner !! The clear value of an attacking left back.
Attacking wise he's a udder of fresh milk !
As we know Taylor short comings in his attacking forrays .

By all accounts defensively Targett wasn't brilliant and will likely have a torrid time in defense next Saturday against Man city.
However it's the right side of the fullback and position that is more concerning regards chances given up and that Guilbert despite many good things is found wanting both in positioning and being beaten or preventing crosses.

But what I enjoy about Targett is his movement forward and his providing of opportunities in his crosses , which though mixed, is offering an attacking contribution .
Brilliant goal and I can't help thinking what Tayls would have done in the 94th min.
But I think he wouldn't even be in the pen box!
Well done Matty ! Hopefully he stays fit and can actually be a contender for England left back once as he develops
Has all the attributes!
Great signing!


Not having a pop, genuine question, Iím curious if are you basing your analysis of both full backs on having watched the whole game? (Just the the Ďby all accountsí suggests maybe not, and seems a very full opinion if you didnít?) Not suggesting itís not necessarily valid either.

He was mostly crap on Saturday in an all round play sort of way, but he does get forward to join in attacks.  He's got an assist and a goal in his last two games, which will do for from a left back. I'm certain his general play will improve once he's fully up to speed, and then we'll have a very good player on our hands.  As john e rightly said earlier, the days of the likes of Taylor "not doing much wrong" are hopefully behind us.  I'd be getting Hause on the bench now, because he seemed to like going forward as well.  I hope that Taylor isn't picked against Man City for supposedly being better defensively.

Still probably not fully fit just yet.  Reminds me a bit of Lowton when he was with us.

Neil Taylor? Against Manchester City? What are you smoking?

The last game Neil Taylor played for us was his substitute appearance vs Burnley when he came on for Targett around the 62 minute mark. 5 minutes later he was culpable for their first goal via some terrible marking against Rodriguez who out-muscled him as if he were a schoolboy to head home. He was culpable again for their second when Lowton made him look a mug and crossed the ball as if he weren't even there for Wood for finish off.

If he can't defend against the likes of Rodriguez and Lowton he will get eaten alive by the quality of City's attack. The same might happen to Targett for all I know, but at least he won't look like one of the chuckle brothers in possession.

Agreed, on top of which Hause hasn't even been in the squad at all this season.  I'm more than happy with the way Targett is progressing, and I think his introduction to the squad has really helped Grealish flourish.

We just look a better team in general and it's in small part down to the fact that teams can't just ignore our fullbacks getting the ball. Throwing that away on the basis that Taylor is a marginally better defender is the sort of thinking that saw Bruce still getting support right up until he got his P45.

Hause must be wondering why he's swapped Wolves bench for not even getting on ours. I know it's a squad game but LB is his best chance of a run in the team so if Targett struggling defensively is a recurring theme, I'd want Kourtney to get a chance in a few weeks time.

To be fair, he wasnít actually getting in their team in their last season in the Championship either.

I think he is probably viewed predominantly as a centre back by Dean Smith now anyway. He played his part in our winning streak there last season and has played both cup games in that position. Iím not sure he offers enough going forward to play as a premier league full back either.
