Toljan can play LB.
I certainly would agree. I think we would be attacking most of the game anyway so play Hayes at left back if Izzy is not fit to play on Sunday.
Didni realise that. I'd rather play toljan at RB and give lustig a rest. We've only got him 6 months and has looked good so I'd be loathed to put him at LB, but it's certainly a better option than putting mcgregor there.
Conversely, might be good to see how toljan copes playing there, so could be good to throw him in.
Outstanding today. Has to start against Valencia.
Far better option than Izaguirre.
First half was a bit tentative but he was superb second half.
calmac at LB against the Spaniards
Was excellent for the third goal. Would much rather he start against valencia
Thought he did well, some great runs, a performance that will do his confidence the world of good.
* hope not as well
He’s not a LB but filled in well there today, should be nowhere near starting on Thurs tho.
He's obviously not a natural LB but think people have been far too harsh on him in the past, he's more than capable of covering the left side as a squad player, and if both KT and Izzy are out I'd much rather him than shuffling McGregor in there and losing his influence in midfield.
Looked out of his depth in the first half. Then he was excellent in the second. Fair play to him. He’s a grafter.
Thought he was our weak link..
Came in to it but was poor on the ball for most of it, bar that quality run and assist for the third but looked very uncomfortable..
Gives everything though. Attitude isn't in doubt..
He is out of his depth. I lost count of how many times he passed the ball to an opposition player under little or no pressure; his crossing, in particular, was abysmal.
He spent a lot of time running into dead ends and falling on his * too.
I would start Lustig and Toljan against Valencia if both of our left-backs are still unavailable.
Looked a nervous wreck in the 1st half but whatever BR said to him at HT worked. Brilliant 2nd half and hopefully does his confidence the world of good
He was outstanding second half
I didn't see today's game so can't comment on Hayes from that point of view. However I think most would agree KT and Toljan are our first choice fullbacks by some distance. So if KT is fit then there is no problem. However that seems unlikely so it looks like Toljan and either Lustig or Hayes. Either way I think we are just going to have to have one fullback that has to concentrate on been defensively sound and we sacrifice something going forward. I have never seen Toljan play left back so don't know if he is equally good on either side ( again if this is the case no problem). My gut instinct though would be Toljan right-back and Hayes on the left.
Played very well today. Love his attitude and work rate. Epitome of a squad player but he seems to have accepted that.
Always nice to see a good performance from an Irishman in hoops.
Equipped himself well today....just what you'd expect from a good, honest, hard working pro....good game Jonny, well played mate: Hail, Hail
