    I have not seen anything this season that shows me Aarons is any better than KWP. In fact, he hasn’t even looked as good as KWP.....

    Was much better before the restart, but since I would agree. Poch got the square root of feck all out of KWP. He's now looked so much better under Hasenhuttl.

    It’s because he is getting games
    Quite scary that, game time = form and opportunity

    But the manager must be praised for seeing something in these lesser players.

    Well choice may be an issue (he had less choice) but also yeah he gave him the opportunity
    Poch made some calls which left us with Aurier as first choice which I find stunning considering Poch was a defender

    There aren't many managers who have the bottle to spend big on a player and leave him out of the team.

    I've seen around 10-12 games involving Norwich. Not in one single game has Aarons done anything to make me think "that's a really good full back". In fact, I think he's been underwhelming in most of the games I've seen. Often out of position, and looks really weak.

    Well he sold a play in trippier for big money and i assumed the plan was for Foyth to play before he got injured
    Both Poch and Jose have happily left out Tubby

    Well he was up and down the wing all day when we played them in the cup
    Their full backs were miles better than ours

    So now constantly running around is a sign of quality all of a sudden. Strange, as it does not apply to our players....
    Also, you are using 1 game as the yard stick. A game where the whole team was atrocious.

    No but running is important. I mean our RB doesn’t really run when he is out of position does he... he kinda plods and then someone else has to step in. It’s a massive reason for example why Tubby doesn’t start. It’s a massive reason why our right hand side is more exposed than Donald Trump in a brothel

    And We have been atrocious every game vs Norwich
    That attacked us and we crumbled basically
    But I’ve seen him play plenty and the lads good
    He is already more competent than Aurier

    You're free to have your opinion, but you're wrong.

    I don’t think I am
    It’s exactly why we’re looking at him
    We want to upgrade the right back position
    We drew up a list and he is right up there on it
    I think our biggest issue is finding a buyer willing to pay for Aurier

    I think he's been a regular for us and has played well enough for some mug team to think he's a decent option.

    We were mug enough when we lifted him out of PSG.

    Think an Italian team might bite?

    If they can get a work permit for him
    We had to pull strings
    AC Milan is the current rumour and it could suit him
    A team doing nothing in a slow league

    I think Ndembele has chosen not to play rather than been left out, he obviously believes being talented is enough and working for the team is over rated, Jose didnt sign him so not a problem for him.

    Where did you see the club say they were looking at him? Too much is made of all the crap that is scrawled upon the internet. We had the same hysteria about signing Sessegnon who was a ready made replacement for Rose. In the real world things dont always workout as you might wish. The pressure of joining one of the leading clubs is huge and many young players cant handle it straight away, hopefully Ryan can come good.

    Ndombele has a disgusting attitude. To be top class requires effort and application.

    It’s been reported regularly since last season and not just the gutter press
    I mean by the same people who said who we were signing last season
    Alistair Gold who purely covers us has raised him several times and so has Dan Kilpatrick
    I’ve also spoken to a local scout who weirdly works for Norwich and Villa and he said we have been scouting him since he was at Luton (this guy used to work the before they went pear shaped)
    The thing in any new RBs favour is they won’t be replacing a quality player
    It’s exactly the same as the Sessegnon scenario IMO
    And I think Ryan can come good. He needs some development and some stability. Last season for him and others was a cluster fudge

    Do we really? Has anyone at the club told you we want a new right back? We may want to add a natural right back, but then to sell Aurier would be stupid, unless you go with the back up i will mention later. If those are good enough, then your whole post is torn apart. You are also contradicting yourself.

    You say Ndombele dosent play because he doesn't run, and you say Aurier doesn't run or track back. Yet he plays every game when he is available. Hmm...
    You know, I know and everyone else knows that in a Mourinho team, if you don't do your job, you don't play. Aurier plays. Hmmmm...

    I know you want to counter with "we have no other option"
    Wrong! Alderweireld can play right back. He does often for the national team, and he's competent at it. Dier is compent at right back. We have Foyth, and even Sissoko has shown he can do a job there. And Mourinho isn't shy of playing anyone "out of position" if he believes that's the best option. He's done that numerous times.
    But Aurier plays. Hmmm....
    Maybe he's not as bad as your clouded view suggest.

    Also, we scout players ALL THE TIME! FOR EVERY POSITION!
