If Taylor is an average championship left back then God knows what that makes our options.
The 2 things aren’t related though are they.
Team and business wise, if you flipped the transfer round and said you can have him back for £5m you’d have to be mental to sAy that was a good deal.
Option wise, why bring CBJ in and not play him, and for the trickier away games I’d play Cooper at LB.....or maybe even go 3 at the back and play more attacking wing backs with Jansson spare.
But consistently playing/picking the wrong/weaker players isn’t a good idea.
Manager has no idea.
They are linked, if you are trying to improve your squad when a player leaves to improve as a collective you need a better player in their place.
If we could get a player of Taylor's quality for 5m then we should be in there but we don't seem interested in players ready to go. Project signings and loan deals are the order of the day.
im giving the recruitment department the benefit of the doubt because if CBj was anything other than a last minute panic option then we won't be going anywhere.
As for cooper he played a few games at left back when he first arrived looked OK better than Warnock then again Warnock was stealing a living during this time here.
Well, no, no and no.
Opinion: Taylor never had quality, so that’s the wrong argument.
We could, with correct scouting, get a better replacement for free. The afore mentioned Alioski is probably worth a go too.
Taylor is massively overrated and in the end did us a favour with the fee.
The CBJ thing is puzzling though, I agree.
