    Kaz is the only 'head down and charge' winger we have.
    Damn! There goes our Plan B!

      Be interesting to see how Bjordal progresses.

      I'd be amazed if Chris is going to rely heavily on Solly, just yet.
      Murphy is a walking twinge.
      Be amazed. March has been in every squad for 2 months now.
      And Murphy isn't a walking twinge - He's been injured for only a couple of games in past 12 months.
      Doesn't mean they won't recruit another winger but your reasons for it don't stack up.

      There are some walking twinges on NSC that's for sure.

      The Albion is a team heavily reliant on wingers, to feed GM, release pressure and counterattack.

      Our 4 remaining wingers all have different attributes, different weak points and very different levels of fitness.

      Just 1 injury to a 'head down and charge' winger instantly brings Kaz into play.
      Dismissing him as '5th choice, nowhere near the first team' is naive beyond words.
      We've got Solly, Murphy, Skalak and a soon-to be-returning Rosenior who can all play down that side, plus Pocognoli who from what I've seen could also put a shift in there, if needed. In the event of an outbreak of broken legs or bubonic plague amongst all our left-sided players, I'm confident Knocky could quite comfortably switch sides for a bit.

      Kaz's legs are made of Weetabix, and he's not pulled up any trees since coming back from his last injury. I really REALLY don't think we need him as cover any more this season.

      Out and out yes, but Knockaert and Murphy both have that string in their bow, certainly more than Solly & Skalak.
      Precisely. This is why I'm not at all bothered about Lua Lua leaving on loan.

      Neither am I, I'm just struggling with the idea of being so dismissive of losing a winger from a squad so heavily reliant on wing play.

      This all started with memories of how last season ended.
      Maybe I'm just being overcautious and pooh scared of getting this far into the season without an injury 'crisis'.

      Last season losing Kayal and Rosenior for 4 months would have been considered an injury crisis.

      As has been said Pocognoli has played left midfield so could fill in, especially in away games when we need to defend a little more and this would more than compensate the loss of Lua Lua. Those we have are more than adequate to attack in home games.

      Last season our problem was losing Bong then also LR but that wont happen this year as we have 3 players for each full back position at least. 4 CB and 4 CM and 4 Wide Midfielders. Our lacking is cover up front.
