Just jogged on when Hayes came off
He played well. Fast and assured and got a few balls in.
With hayes looking like he'll be out for a few weeks and boli still to come back Taylor has a real chance to stake his claim at LB, i thought he was good today,
The importance of full back options now plain for everyone to see...
Really like the look of him so far
Unlucky with this
More than anything it shows how weak we were. We shifted Tierney (and I think he will be a star in the premiership) but we are not weaker on the left, we just have more options. With Taylor, Bolingoli or Hayes I feel we are strong. Then on the right we have Frimpong, Elhamed and Bauer all 3 better than any option from last year. We sold 1 defender for £25m and let 3 go for free, bought 5 for around £15m and we look far stronger. Shows what good recruitment can do.
So true, a total upgrade on defenders.
When I think back to last season, gee whiz, Gamboa and Izzy as back ups.
Last year we had the equivalent of a skinny quail in the full back positions.
Thia year, we are feasting on Turkey.... we have bolingoli, hayes, Taylor, El Hamed, Bauer, and the fabulous Frimpong!!.
Yes indeed-and also Irish full international Lee O'C
He was excellent yesterday when he came on.
The difference that the international games has made is huge.
Not put a foot wrong, was brilliant for Scotland too.
Deserves a run in the team, which it looks like he will now get.
Shame he's cup tied if Boli and Hayes are both out. Been impressed so far..
Fek. Never even thought about that.
Hopefully one of Boli or Hayes is back soon then with the final just around the corner.
Both Bauer and Frimpong can play on the left.. ideally Bolingoli is back tho..
Wouldn’t feel as comfortable with one of them at LB. Hopefully Boli is back for it.
Far from ideal... we’ve went from having an abundance of Fullbacks to..
Elhamed, Bolingoli, Hayes all injured.. Taylor Cup Tied.. wonder if O’Connor will feature in the squad v County..
We could always go something like for the final..(if the worst comes to the worst)
Jullien Bitton Ajer
Frimpong Brown McGregor Forrest
Doubt if NL would go 3 at the back for such an important game.
