Be interesting to see how Bjordal progresses.
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.
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.

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'.

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.
