In the Danger Zone.
- Feb 10, 2009
Clyne has mistakes in him too but he hasn't got the positive defensive attributes Lovren has. Clyne won't offer any sort of physical challenge, won't win headers. I think we're a lot meaner with Gomez at full back and Lovren in the middle. If it's a choice between Matip and Clyne then I'd probably lean more towards Clyne.Lovren can world class. But we know he has a mistake in him. And when he makes one he tends to make another.
To be honest, if it wasn’t for his fitness record he’d probably be starting. He just isn’t reliably available enough to be first choice.
I’m also worried about the effect running touchline is having on Joe’s knees, what with the previous injuries.
But I agree with that Watford/PSG shout. I can only say it isn’t what I’d do, but I’ve got a thing about fucking with the centre backs.
Agree with Gomez fitness playing right back long term but for now I've no problem getting moved out there when the situation calls for it this season. Ideally we'll replace Clyne with a better player and then the issue is resolved, then there'll be no need to move Gomez from the centre.
The way I see it Gomez is now our best right back and our second best centre back. He should be playing every game he is fit and available for, it just depends on the opposition as to where he plays.
