    Who do we really need to make a difference?

    Sagna has been crap for a while and Gibbs has been injury prone for as long as I can remember.

    Baines or quality left back is nr 1 priority, defensive midfielder nr2 priority, and rightback and striker equal nr 3 priority. We might as well give Jenkinson minutes on the right since he is supposed to be our future and he can't possibly be at the root of more conceded goals than Sagna.

    • And Gibbs is now out for another 3 weeks!

    • I do believe that Jenkinson could benefit from a run of games. I dont think he is the route of our problems. Essentially Mertesacker is too slow and Kosielny is too small. This leaves Vermaelen often working with a defender who is too small to deal with big lumbering attackers and a defender who is too slow to deal with small fast attackers.


      Of course this is very over-simplified....for the benefit of a couple of posters.
