Yeah  
Good point about cover though. I think the main point is that Aswad is a big loss, especially going forward, and Maggers isn't really a like for like swap there, as excellent as he is is. I think he was really doing a good job for us on the right and it'd be best to try to preserve that situation rather than having to switch him across.

Hurst mentioned that he's got Walker and Bignot and that he 'likes right backs'. Personally I don't think Parslow is much more than 'ok' in any position and I don't rate Bignot, so I'd like to see Hurst try to strengthen that by finding and signing a good left back. Hurst doesn't seem to want to play Walker or Winfarrah, and on that basis it makes them wastes of money and squad places, a lot like the Watson signing. I'd like to see that resource spent on players who Hurst will trust to play, especially as fiances are tight and money spent must ostensibly be good value.

Hurst himself said that we are not running a development squad and can't afford to operate like that, which makes his non-use of some of his squad members seems bewildering, contrary as it is. Think of how much more efficient, competitive and potent we might be if you replaced the 3 or 4 players Hurst seems unwilling to play and replaced them with some that he will give a chance to.


I agree. It does seem barmy to be paying players that are never going to play. In one way it is understandable, it's his job that's on the line so he would rather not take what he sees as an unnecessary risk. But it is still a waste of money.

Hurst's comments about bringing in a right back instead of a left back do concern me. Magnay is best at right back, although he is competent at left back. I just feel it takes something out of his game and we don't necessarily look as well balanced. For a long time we've played with right footed left wingers and obviously had Aswad.

That worked well as there were two options: either the full back would overlap down the wing and put a cross in or the winger could cut inside and play the ball. In this case I feel it makes us a bit predictable.

Two right footers down the left I feel takes away some of out attacking threat. Particularly as our goals tend to originate from out wide.

I would rather see Bignot instead of Parslow at right back while Magnay is covering L.B.
Parslow will not overlap his full back and puts the brakes on and goes sideways or backwards when he hits the halfway line, with Makreth in front of him who also rarely produces a cross that combination effectively rules out any attacking option down the right.
Bignot when he came on the other week put a couple of good balls in from an upfield position within moments of coming on.

Magnay needs to be back at R.B in an ideal world and the only way that will happen is if we get a dedicated L.B in and pronto.

However Hurst will more than likely be happier with the right side looking solid defensively rather than threatening in attack with Makreth and Parslow both prepared to defend.

I don't think Parslow is good enough to be our first-choice right-back for the rest of the season. Is Bignot, though? Not too sure, though I do agree that I would prefer to see Bignot on the right instead of Parslow.

On the other hand, despite the fact that he's right-footed, I expect that Magnay is still one of the better left-backs in the division when playing that role.

Bignot is the obvious replacement at RB if Magnay stays at LB, he looks a lot more at ease than Parslow who should be kept for cover in the center back positions, we still need a strong fast midfield player to carry the ball through

RH think we're in for Gregor Robertson. Although we all know what happened last time they called a signing.

Robertson is a tall left back who can also play centre back and left mid. Has a good league pedigree and was released by Northampton last week. Was at Rotherham when Hurst was there, so all the pieces fit.
