Young had a good first season for us, Tony M is a solid player who could easily fill the right back position but would benefit playing alongside the likes of Luke Young. I think it would be unwise to let go of any other players until the league starts, a few players on the treatment table and things could very quickly go t!ts up for us. We need quality replacements in all areas and options to rotate players when needed. My biggest concern is Adam Johnson, he is getting cheesed off being behind Downing in the squad and could go the same way as Cattermole to Wigan. Downing has just signed a new contract...but why not let him sit the first few games on the bench & see what young Adam can do because he has been on form in the pre-season games.
