    Considering how bad we have been this season I am disappointed we havent seen Skipp given the opportunity, so I really wouldnt argue with you about it.

    Was speaking more in general terms, he is young and theres value in him being with the squad - for a time. After which he needs to play, where you draw that line isnt worth disagreeing over.

    i have always thought Aurier had the ability to be a very good player and had all the strengths you mentioned. But he does seem to do some crazy things on the pitch and it seems he is never going to grow out of that. Shame really.

    Or we can play the wonky. One attacking full back (Rose or Sessegnon) to overload on that side, then 3 stay-at-home proper defenders (Jan Toby Foyth)

    We then have all sorts of options with all the talent at our disposal.

    The only problem is that I haven't seen anything from him yet that suggests he is a decent right back....

    He has come on at RB in a few games and been great
    He was poor vs Bournemouth though
    He plays there for Argentin and the game I saw he was excellent

    I just haven't seen it yet. I hope Foyth proves me wrong but he looks like he has a long way to go to get to what we need from a right back to me.

    Our full back options are a bit of a laugh really - Davies aside

    Left back - Danny Rose- been poor for a while and loved to talk to media

    Right back - KWP - not trusted
    Foyth - CB
    Serge - Clown Prince
    Sanchez - CB

    Tend to agree with this, Davies is the only one who looks like he knows what he is doing there.
    I hope that Foyth can prove that he is good enough to play there as our regular RB. Not seen any of the Argie games but i believe he has done well.

    Davies was funny/dreadful against Colchester in League cup game


    (Heads up) I'm currently having problems getting on to this site - If you do not get a reply, that will be the reason

    He starts at RB for a team that intentionally leave their best player out of the squad.

    He’ll be a revelation for us when he’s fit, as long as Poch plays him in the right place of course.

    i actually thought if there was to be a positional change it would be as a DM, he’s very good technically on the ball and should have a natural sense for danger and positioning as CB.

    He’s probably the one played more games for Argentina at right back than he has first team club games in his career, so Argentina are either really, really short of right backs or he’s the new Cafu!!

    He's barely played all season and was carrying an injury last season too, he's not spectacular but is generally pretty solid.

    Yes, I agree in the main.
    Your post/reply sounds like an epitaph to resent part of Pochettino tenure. So many long term injuries etc.

    I think Rose at his best is better than Davies at his best but he hasn't really hit the heights of his performances pre injury outburst bar the odd game and I'm not sure he'll ever get there. His concentration seems to have gone but that could just be the general team performing badly - he's not alone in losing his man.

    Rose has been living on his form of a couple years ago since then he has been fading. Fans like him because he is " dynamic" which means because he throws himself to the ground to make tackles and some fans love it, but to be honest it usually means he has lost the man because of him not being aware of what is happening. All about opinions but as i have said Davies is a much better FB.
