Still more people that will not rest until I change my opinion No reason apart from competition, injuries and suspensions you mean?
Said several times I would not want to move Eck from LB because he's much more effective there.
A new striker would be 4th choice also or Mullan would be moving down the pecking order so yet again that is not an argument for not bringing in a CB. I fully appreciate that a different forward player off the bench can change a game but there is also times when a CB or defensive player is a necessity. It's happened a good few times this season where we've had to bring on a CB.
Also said several times that emergency loan could be an option but it's my own personal opinion that I would rather have a permanent option training with the team. Why do people feel the need to try and change this? Or not see how a CB training regularly with Davis, Mac and Baird would be better than someone in the door on a Thursday and playing Saturday?
I don't understand the 4 CB point at start of season? JR brought them all in on at least one year contracts so he clearly seen some benefit then in having four CB options for the full season (Davis wasn't going to be out the full year)? If anything I think that's more important now we're chasing a title. Especially if Davis can't play on certain parks, Mac has had very little game time, Eck is injured and one of the back-up options is Irvine who also has played very little.
Three fit defenders, two of which have had more than one long-term injury in the last two years. Yet you can't see why I might have a point about another CB option? I don't want to change anyone's opinion but people completely dismissing it is pretty crazy to me.
I'm for the striker option, they're not related IMO. I think it would be good to have another option but there has been several games this season where we've had to bring on a CB. Imagine the situation where someone gets injured then Baird, Davis or Mac get a red card, injury or really under perform. We would be reliant on moving a player out of position (If Eck is back fit) or Gary Irvine.
If the choice is between a new striker and a CB it's not obvious. It's a matter of opinion. My opinion is based on the fact we have three of the top 10 top scorers in the league on our books and the goals against stats when Davis isn't fit. Bottom line is there's an argument both ways.
