    Konchesky. A pile of dogsh*t or useful squad member?

    Dave, why is konchesky deemed bad, is it opinion, standards, expectations, perceptions or the base fact that he has failed to impress, The later, something he admitted to about a month ago.
    Also, why a top class left back in the sales, if you think he is being persecuted.
    Anyway we have a more important issue, tell me when was the last time we had a negative goal difference after 15 games.

    • I thinking you’re falling into a trap that this is a black and white issue. You either love PK or you hate him! Fact is I don't think he'd good enough, and therefore think he should be replaced. But that is not a reason to scapegoat him, as it’s not his fault. It’s the fault of the manager who signed him and the club overall at the time, for not having been run well enough to fund the level of player we actually need. He came in as a player to plug a hole, so to expect anything more than average from him I think is unfair.

      You are right that we need more production up front, and that should be one of our focus's in improving the side. However I see a better LB as a convey belt that will help with that goal margin. Maybe it’s just a difference in opinion, but I see full backs as just as much attacking players as defenders. They may not put in many goals themselves, but they are part of the creative engine just as much as a creative playmaker in the center in providing the service a striker needs. And, with one of the best finishers in the game, I think what we need is improved service as much if not more than, another man standing next to Torres not getting service because we don't have good enough supply lines from the back.
