10 years of FIF
Totally not excited about him. Would have been perfect LWB, like 8 years ago.
Its cool to have people like him in the squad, but we already have Young as experienced wing back. He is soon to be 35, coming after 2 mediocre seasons where his contribution has been free kicks mostly. He doesnt have the stamina he used to have and he doesnt even bother defending.
That being said, imo transfer that was not needed at this time. We need to build for present but also future, having two 35 years old LWB might fuck us up badly..
Edit: he would be awful LCB. He has played like 10 games there his entire club career. His defensive workrate, positioning and marking have been a problem for him his entire career. That stopped him from being the best LB in the world.
do we use him as left winger, or as left defender in the back 3?
