No no no… a new right back along with a new player in almost every other position.
Best get the important positions sorted then. You could sign the best fullback in the world for us right now and it'd make one of the smallest improvements in the team out of all positions

Still don’t get me. But it’s ok. We’ll both be fine

I didnt realize AWB is responsible for Mason Greenwood's off the field actions and Antony's form.

What a rational poster
Any teams wingers would be better with fullbacks who are good offensively. It's actually very rational and simple. Try playing football.

So why arent we better with Dalot at right back? Why arent our extra wingers used at right back? You've figured out football, explain why nobody else has

He is not good enough either? Couple of things that’s going for him so far is his build and fitness is what I think.

He's a good attacking fullback for Portugal. Scored some great goals

By the poster's logic, any attacking fullback would be an improvement for our right winger

Never really get the AWB narrative personally. He’s a brilliant right back to me, easily one of the best in the league. I have no idea how he’s managed to become caught up in this battle with Diogo fecking Dalot.

He looks awkward when he moves, but I don’t even accept the notion that he offers nothing going forward or is just a ‘defensive full back’. I think he’s easily better offensively than Dalot too.

Of the two I'd keep AWB as an understudy right back for someone genuinely well rounded. But if we'd sold both I'd be more than fine with it too. On the other side we'll need to upgrade as Shaw's fitness is so unreliable and Malacia isn't the level required as a first XI player. Fix those issues and we'll start looking somewhat competent.

But I've got a soft spot for AWB purely for his tackling. He's quite nifty too running between defenders in the final third, his delivery unfortunately is poor though.

I somewhat agree, I think the narrative of all he is is a defensive RB has stuck in peoples heads and now they are stuck with it. I don’t know if it’s just me but he seems to get in better positions than the others and somehow seems to make Antony play mildly better when together.

I do think on occasion he lacks focus and can get caught out but when he has gone up against the very best he seems to turn it on. He pocketed Mbappe if I recall. Just seems like someone you would want to keep around. I don’t even mind Dalot as a utility option.

I think it's because he still hasn't nailed down that RB slot in 5 seasons. He has no international career, he cost 50 million and although he's fantastic on one-on-ones against tricky wingers he often messes up the defensive line with his positional play, although to be fair Dalot is guilty of that too. I remember the game against Arsenal earlier in the season and we were playing out from the back pretty well but he was the one defender that looked uncomfortable on the ball and stuck out as much.

I'm not saying he's a bad player or that he hasn't been good, but it's just another signing that's not really been that impressive or transformative. Dalot is showing some promise at times but i don't think either are good enough to be what we really want from a full back.

This is all part of the job as a footballer now, the media side, and it looks like he’s not pulling his weight off the pitch

He has never been the type to do interviews. There is nothing wrong with that. Who cares if a player doesn't want to do those things? We've had enough egocentrical players that love that shite.

I don't know if he's one of the best in the league, but how the fanbase goes in on him is weird to me. I feel like I'm watching a completely different player based on the things people come out with. He's a good player and not one of the reason why we're so bad. Dalot is better at playing medium to long range passes and shooting, but I think AWB is much a much better dribbler and more likely to find someone when he puts a ball into the box.

I don't mind Dalot, either, but I'd pick AWB over him every time at RB.

Where the feck is this guy? We sort of need him back if the idea is to play Shaw at LCB to accommodate for Lisandro injury.

I prefer him as a RB and Dalot as LB rather than Dalot as RB and Lindelof as LB.

By the way, this thread is in the first page but the last comment was on Monday. I think that's the second time that I ve seen a thread that didn't have any new comments being in the first page of threads. Am I missing something really obvious?
