I have consistently highlighted our defensive performance is not good enough -
which is 90% down to;
1. the way we play, taking risks by ploughing forward to create overloads which leaves space in behind.
2. the amount of injuries we've had at the back, there's probably been at least 10 different combinations of our defensive lines.
with our best players making less mistakes, as they will with more time in the prem, we won't keep conceding in the same way. just having pascal at the back made us a lot better at set pieces. stop stressing about this.
i'd personally wham all our budget on getting a top quality attacking midfielder. then we've got dallas, davies and huggins to cover the left back position.
I’d still like a specialist LB. We are good at CB and Ayling can hold RB hopefully with Drameh coming through to usurp him.
