    He moves and passes like a PES 6 player. So rigid.

    Looks more likely to be the cause of a goal compared to Ralston or Taylor which is a worry

    Another worry is the amount of people saying he needs to do the basics better .

    This is a 4/5m worth defender.

    Don't like to right players off so early - but really not convinced

    Not going to write the guy off yet.Always thought it’s the toughest position for a player to settle into as there’s a lot more pressure especially the way Ange has us playing.He seems composed enough on the ball and his passing is good,just needs to snuff out these mistakes.

    He's entitled to a settling in period but the early signs are very concerning.

    I see a lot of Simonovic in him.

    I’m hoping it’s a settling in period. Defenders always take a bit to get used to their surroundings. With Big Welsh’s form and Jullien to come back should sort out some frailties in time.

    Too early to write him off.
    But the early signs aren't great.

    There does seem to be some fair reasoning why he's looking shakey though.
    He's clearly on the wrong side of the Cb pairing.
    He is very one footed, his right foot, and it shows in a few of his "mistakes" that penalty, if he could use his left foot comfortably, he would have cleared the ball quicker and thus wouldn't have conceded the penalty.

    The first game against hearts, he goes in to slide/hook the ball away, but he's that set on using his right foot, it ends up being an awkward slide that hooks the ball in to the path of the hearts player for their goal. Again, if he could have slid in on the tackle with his left foot, he likely scoops that ball in the other direction or something.

    I'd like to see him with Julien, or another new Cb that we desperately need regardless, and then get him on the right side.

    I actually don't know why he isn't on the right side just now anyway, I don't see why Welsh wouldn't be tried on the left?
    Surely Ange see's (or being told by starfelt) that on the left side of the pairing is not his best position, so switch it.
    Even if it's not Welsh best position either, surely it can't be any worse than starfelt whos not doing too great there as it stands.

    As much as we are told (get mixed messages) that guys like Kennedy aren't defensive coaches, he was a defender and surely he must see that/understand it and again be telling the manager to switch it.

    Agree with the above.

    A defense coach should see this, it needs sorted ASAP. The question is, who is responsible for the defense setup? With the way Ange wants to play, this is the one area that should be prioritized IMHO.

    Tougher tests await, just do it now please.

    I think it's a really hard system to come into and look great as a CB. I think he's been an improvement anyway as we'd be paying Bitton without him. I'm hoping he can settle in and start to look more assured though.

    I’m really worried considering what we paid and the importance of his position in the squad at the minute.

    But I do have a slight feeling there will be a game soon where he will turn the corner.

    Heart attack type CB.

    He's not looked completely at ease for 90mins in ANY of his games yet. Welsh looks the better player.

    Was willing to give him the benefit of the doubt but I’m not sure it’s nerves any more. It’s not even just the mistakes. A few Ariel duels tonight he is like a wee boy behind the forward. Had a couple of decent interceptions near the end of the half but he’s an accident waiting to happen.

    Would seriously consider replacing him.

    Same * as usual. That's four games now (Hearts x2, Jalbonec away and tonight) where he's either given a penalty away, been at fault for a goal, or dived in and been mugged by a striker.

    He's grand like. He's got certain decent attributes. But he's not a starter. Welsh looks much more composed and solid.

    I was thinking a Julien kinda performance against the Huns but the idea of Morelos against this guy gives me the complete fear

    Mate, Welsh looks like he’s playing a different sport to this guy. Even swapped them about and Welsh is still cool and composed.
