2 world wars, 1 world cupFrom Despair To Where? I was thinking purely in terms of wanting both Blackett and Obita to stay and how to accommodate them both.
Obita has a goal and 2 assists in 7 appearances, Blackett 3 assists in 10 appearances so, as fullbacks they are both more than capable going forward and obviously both reasonably strong defensively.
I think Obita is the better footballer but there are obvious concerns about his fitness but I'm intrigued by the idea of them maybe playing in tandem down the left.
IIRC Obita was originally a left winger who we converted to LB due to need, which explains why his crossing is better than his defending.
Yes. Basically, Obita converted to a LB because Bridge was permacrocked
