    Centre Backs.

    And he's another left footer lol.

    Key part? Their squads often contain players from the lower leagues not just the championship. We are that desperate.

    Saw Jack Grimmer tonight for Coventry. Forgotten man, once considered a great prospect at centre half. But here's the thing: now a right-footed right back who is decent in defence and is always looking to attack. Cover maybe for Paterson? Oh, I know he's League 2 but if he was Northern Irish or Welsh they'd snap him up. Also in League 2 players' team of the season. In the same match Mark McNulty scored a cracker - another right footer in this left footed world we inhabit right now.

    Now not many folk would get that now..! But he's got 'Liam' Burt, 'O'Halloran', 'Murphy' and 'Docherty' for company! So yes would fit in.

    If he's two-footed even better, but he has played a lot at right back.

    You'd have 3 left-footers there - need a bit of balance. Hendry, Bates, McCrorie all right footers I think.

    Never heard of players changing clubs and their form improving?

    That would mean we'd need to play a 4.2.3.1 or a 4.3.3. So abandoning our 3 at the back. Unless we go 3-4-3. Oh, I dunno.

    Paterson said himself: "I know I'm not so good on one-to-ones but..."

    Phillips

    Would you say the same about Cairney? He's had a couple of chances now.

    How nice to be able to say: we don't need any more centre backs! But we don't. Soutar and Lindsay are really unlucky to miss out. And McRorie and Bates will be candidates 'fore too long so no need to look at a 27 year old. The real question is: are we going for a back 3? If yes, then the key requirements are to be able to build up from the back and to have decent pace. So that would seem to suggest Hendry, McKenna and Tierney. Only problem with the latter may be a relative lack of height at 5' 10". Distribution is Souttar's strength, not sure about Lindsay. Berra' s distribution is not great which is maybe why he was overlooked, yet he could be a candidate for the player of the year! Good times. Wish we had this depth at right wing back.

    Match Thread - Hungary

    I've heard him being mentioned on Sportsound as a possibility so it's not just you, a lone voice in the wilderness!

    Try telling that to Italy for example where they really value experience in their goal. Most of their greats went right on till they were pushing 40.

    Douglas at right back? Has he ever played there?
