Bafana Blue Posted July 5, 2006 Report Share Posted July 5, 2006 I can not understand why we seem to be linked with right sided midfield players like Brett Emerton when we have more than enough cover in that position. Andy Van Der Meyde is naturally suited to playing on the right wing and to write him off after one season is a joke! Was not long ago many of you on this site were unhappy with the performances of Nuno Valente now he is on the verge of playing in a world cup final and looked better then Ashley Cole the other night! We also have Leon Osman who I feel is far more influential on the right of midfield than when he plays in the middle of the park. Arteta is also right footed and has been superb when asked to play outwide. In addition to those 3 both Lee Carsley and Simon Davies have played on the right of midfield in the past. Compare that abundance of options with the left of midfield where the only naturally left footed option we have is Kilbane. He is far too slow for the premiership and should be used as no more than cover in this position if we are serious about creating more chances for our strikers. I feel that Moyes should be looking at bringing in either Boa Morte or Van der Vaart to play on the left. Both are top quality players and luckily neither have been given much of an opportunity to shine at the world cup and therefore their price tags will not be inflated. Add Maniche to one of those two, plus what we already have in the likes of Arteta, Cahill, VDM and our midfield will be one of the strongest in the premiership!
