No. Not Young.
Not Targett  I can't take his weak attacking displays like Neil Taylor tribute act
Or his own goals.

You seem quite desperate for a new player to moan at now that Grealish has left.

Not really I'm just yet again  pointing out deficiencies of players that people refuse to see, or acknowledge .  Many seem preoccupied with lambasting Mings at the moment

Felt Targett has been unfit , been poor in attacking play as a wing back as failed nunerous times when high up the pitch and has let us down defensively several times yet Mings seems to be someone identified which is more obvious and Targett defects has gone unnoticed unless I flag it up

I think many would agree he has been simpler to Neil Taylor when attempting to attack so nothing unfair there actually Risso Rosco

How many own goals has he got out of interest?

No, he's not been as good as last season but Young in a back four is not the answer.
Well for Me like the way he was in the wall caused the late winner for Wolves. Deflecting off him as tepid free kick because be didn't front it.
 Like Sherwood said "he should be ashamed of himself" as he didn't face up to it. Yet everyone harping on about Mings performance.

Thank you clampy for noticing the general poorer season of targett and his deficiencies! I glad I'm not the only one. I don't mind targett and think he's improved from when first arrived

And Young or Hause is an alternative

Can't see Bailey being fit enough to start after the lay off.

If Bailey starts then I'll be surprised if he makes an hour

Agree.  And I don't see Smith starting him
What's fascinating is how he'll configure the team both insitally and when Bailey is on the pitch.

I don't understand what any of that means but he is light years better than Neil Taylor.

Going into this batch of games (Wolves, Arsenal, Hammers,  Saints) I was hoping for at least seven points. Given the nature of our capitulation at the weekend I would take a point and a solid defensive display right now.

I wouldn't. We'be been averaging just over a point a game this calendar year, and that really isn't good enough.

Hi everyone! Been too pissed off this week after Saturday to come to this site. Hope the Prodigal Sons ask for metaphorical forgiveness, in any shape or form later, even from John McGinn's backside, tonight!

Who was it that assisted Ollie again at Spurs?

Martinez

Cash
Konsa
Mings
Targett

Luiz
McGinn
Sanson

Bailey
Ings
Buendia

Now that does look sexy and more importantly balanced

With Traore to replace Buendia when tiring and Watkins to replace Bailey

Come on Deano - you know it makes sense
