Unless Dabo is happy there, a competent LB is the most important addition now. Hopefully Saturday reminded some of our fans how valuable a fit Kasim is too.

Having both BOO and Brophy, who can do a job as a LWB, I think it unlikely we'll get a proper LB.  Dabo is a replacement for Furlong, and then Barry can cover.

Ih he can do a job there then leave him and get Thompson in at right back. It's the constant changing of defenders that is fucking us over.

I agree with that, the more a defence works together as a unit the better it is.

Look at Liverpool in the 70s and 80s and the Arsenal defence in the 90s, hardly every any changes all season long. I doubt we have played the same defence in 3 consecutive games this season, mostly due to fitness/injury.

Yep, I'd go with that. I wouldn't go with the statement that either BOO or Brophy are competent LBs.

Has anybody made that statement re BOO and Brophy....clearly they're not, but do offer something further up the pitch, as Luke said on Saturday, it's about balance, and we've not got that right this season so far.

One of the issues is that we signed players to play wing back to play in a more advanced role.

Having realised that the centre halves we have play better in a back four we now have issue that we don't really have any full backs

Anyway.... RUMOURS.

Tans said yesterday on twitter that there's no way Ajose and Caddis will be signing, so we can probably expect to see them holding up the flag again sometime this week.

Agree about leaving Dabo at LB. If he's comfortable there, which judging by Saturday's performance he is, then there's no reason to move him. Both BOO and Brophy have been liabilities this season. Thompson should most certainly be playing at RB again too. Even if results haven't shown it, Branco and Jones have been turning in relatively decent performances at centre back and for me, in a back four, it wouldn't make sense to split them up.

I'm not so sure Ajose would return here it is almost like admitting defeat - but backwards to go forwards perhaps from his point of view, like when he was at Leeds, but he does need a certain type of player to play alongside and be able to play his own game as he is not a striker to track back but hang around for chances.

I would unlikely cost us much either as I'm sure Charlton would not have paid his fee up so probably just pay them the difference back, but probably more than likely he will get sent out on loan and then Charlton will review the end of the season.

I'm hopeful of at least 2 more loans, and ideally they will be experienced players  - Caddis would be a good addition

Get a tactics thread set up. There's plenty to discuss & it'll stop the rumours thread from being polluted!!

Bit of a rumour about Wes Burns coming to Town. Loan ended at Aberdeen with interest from clubs in L1.
