Oh dear, again ?

My point is I don't think any player ever guarantees himself a place in the side because we can't be 100% sure how his form will go.

However unlikely it may be (and agree it's very unlikely), if he starts playing poorly at whichever point in the season, then he wouldn't deserve a starting place.

Perhaps I should have explained my reasoning but tbh thought it might be obvious anyway.

Y' see that bit about 'based on his consistently high levels of performance, attitude and character'.....?

The point you're making is already implicit in what I've written. Your little challenge is not worth making. It's just arguing for the sake of it. Splitting hairs. Not getting it. Obviously, if he suddenly becomes cr@p, he's out. Like anyone else.

Move on.

I didn't see your "changed version" of your 2nd post which was made after my initial point chaos.
Not for that matter see your "follow ups" (unedited version) when I was in the process of typing my "follow up" either.
Believe it or not these things do happen on a forum - not everyone is trying to be obtuse.

To cut to the chase, If you're NOW saying he's virtually guaranteed a place in the side, I fully agree (as I hinted bigtime the very first time - i.e. "fully appreciate your point"  )

Even so, truth is there are always "exceptions to the rule".

For example, if we're 10 points clear of the playoff chasers with 3 left but can't win the title, no point playing him just cos he's the best right back.
And you just never know, someone equally outstanding might even come in at RB to push him or he might move to CB and perhaps even be "outshone" by Pearson and Toto if they're both flying.

Very unlikely again but who knows and who can really say for sure.

I'd also add if was so "obvious", then I've no idea why you chose to argue against the "obvious" point in the first place.

Anyway no need for a paddy or toys out the pram - I think everyone's on the same wavelength anyway tbh. (least I hope so !)

None of my points were edited after positng. I used the word 'now' to indicate that you had initially missed the word 'virtually', and would be forced to notice it in the light of the reply. I've had anough of this now. Let's just move on. Turns out you agree with me anyway FFS.

I can't really remember the exact sequence of who typed what when.
But when I posted my 2nd point explaining my intial reasoning, I didn't see you'd already changed it to "virtually.' by then.
I'm calling it a day and not arguing the toss with you.

I didn't change it to virtually. That's the point.

I'm out of here.

Ooops !
My fault then.
I must have just misread it thinking you only just put "guaranteed" without the 'virtually'.
Similarly when you said "You'll NOW notice that I deliberately included the word 'virtually'" for some reason I thought you meant you had edited it after.

intercourse knows what happened but it's just crossed wires.
Sincere apologies on my part.

Taxi for 80's..

PS I gave you a +1 to support your well made point, not for you to go !
