He's twice the player Targett is so whatever we paid for him times two.
two multiplied by nothing is nothing :D

Surely it's two?!

Satire?

would be nice to get a left back in though that's better than Targett and Taylor

I don't mind Targett, but - much more importantly - it's very rare for me to get the opportunity to correct somebody's maths!

Haha! Just realised what a tit of myself I just made. Move on, par for the course.

this guy is a bit crazy - but would have bought a bit of quality and shithousery to midfield...

It might not be a priority, but we do not get to do the deals we want, in the order we want and we should make intelligent - potentially unpopular - decisions when we get the chance (like moving to upgrade our keeper).

As algy says (above) we have to declare a PL squad of 25 and it would be daft to name three RBs. Cash will be one, Konsa will be in as a CB and can cover, so it is either Elmo or Guilbert.

I like Guilbert but if we get a good offer for him, sentiment aside, for our progress over the next year or two it makes sense to sell and reinvest in a player that improves the starting 11.

Whether we like our current LBs is irrelevant unless you think playing Guilbert or Elmo there is a better option than buying a decent LB (which I don't).

Picking fullbacks to play on their 'wrong' side is (to me) a marker for being a poor manager - reference Bruce and Southgate.

And even then we would have overpaid.

I don't think the 25 man squad thing is that much of an issue.  I expect Jota and Lansbury will be named, although I hope to see them not play a single second all season.  Guilbert is a promising young player, in a position where we don't know how Cash is going to fare, and where the cover is a 33 year old.  I wouldn't want to move Konsa there at all, he needs to stay firmly in the centre and work on his partnership with Mings.

Also Pep, Klopp, Jose and others have done it plenty in their careers, but sure.

Luke Young was Pubehead's one qualified success at this. Not hard when his other attempts at RB included Reo-Coker, Gardner and *shivers* Cuellar.

As how they put together a balanced squad as opposed to a short-term measure to cope with injuries or suspensions, really?

Luke Young, for the most part, coped OK with being on his 'wrong' side, i.e. better than others in the same situation, though to suggest that that was better than finding a decent LB to do the job is a nonsense in my view (and at odds with the general sentiment on here from what I remember).

Mellberg also played the 07/08 season at right back.
