morganbURZZZZNewCorkSeth I'm not certain that a left side of Richards at LB and Obita at AML wouldn't work. It would be pretty good defensively and decent in transition. Also you forgot Barrett who can still be used.
I think I'd prefer Obita LB and Richard further forward in that combo but with them rotating and covering regularly for each other
To be fair, I didn't forget Barrett, I just don't think he's much cop but yes, he can certainly be an option for us
In pre-season we were quite keen on using the academy players. Now we are half way through the season there are none of them near the first team (occasionally one will appear on the bench, though even Loader has disappeared recently .) Do we not have any promising wingers in the academy?
We were keen on using them because there were sparse alternatives! Not sure why Olise hasn't played more, particularly with Swift and Ejaria out, although he may have been injured?
Loader is sixth choice striker so was never going to feature much and McIntyre got a few games but ultimately looked a little out of his depth. He's someone I'd like to see get a chance later in the season if we're in a good position to do so though because I see something in him and his abilities
Also liked the look of Howe, and hope he can rotate with Gunter for the RB spot in the weeks ahead that Yiadom are out
Not sure about up and coming wingers in the academy though
