Push Baines Forward?

Recommended Posts

I see Spurs have been playing Gareth Bale on the left side of midfield, with some success if Saturday is anything to go by.

 

Wondered how Baines would do in a similar role....same type of player I think, good going forward but occasionally suspect at the back. If we got another left back in (which we need anyway) we could push him forward and play Pienaar on the right :) .

baines has played a couple of times in midfield and never looked comfortable, id keep things as they are...maybe try seamus in midfield on the right, he's more of a similar player to bale.

With Craccer on this for Coleman in midfield but that would mean our RB position is still open or at least only challengers are Hibbert and Pip. Scary....

 

As for Baines, as long as we can keep Pienaar why break up our most sucessful partnership of players? Nearly all our creativity comes down the left between these 2. I dont think Baines has got the touch that Peanuts has either...

Agreed, but at least if Coleman did get a run at right wing he has the ability and speed to track back/defend as necessary.
