Thread: Genuine LB makes a difference

    Genuine LB makes a difference

    Not for one moment criticising Berardi, who has done a really solid / steady job, filling in at LB, but yesterdays match, having C Taylor back in the side, a decent left sider, both in defence and attack, seemed to give the whole side a better balance & feel.
    What ever league we are in next season,& if Taylor still decides to leave, at least one quality LB has to be signed - the difference over a season could be huge , and add to that another decent CB, ( seemed to have got away with just the 3 so far ) the defence for first time in years, would be strong / solid, with options in all positions.

    Berardi has done a brilliant job and looked like one of our best players yesterday, but you're right - Charlie Taylor adds another dimension going forward - set up Woods first and defended solidly all game.

    Agree on all counts. We ought to have the ambition and balls to keep both.

    Sadly it might not come down to what LUFC wants....

    Berardi has been excellent but he's not left footed and naturally wants to cut back inside, whereas Taylor will knock it past the RB and cross with his left naturally, that's the difference.

    Thanks for letting us know what a natural LB does Silentman, wouldnt have known otherwise, all that "knockin it past the RB" stuff. Technical.

    Understood (and agreed) Tich, but if we retain a playoff place, and put something attractive to Taylor, is he really going to be so much more motivated to warm the bench with the Baggies, or Spam? As for Berardi, not sure what his situation is, but we need to keep him, he's been a rock all season long and should be treated with respect, given what a stalwart like him deserves by the club.

    Yep it would be ideal to keep both. Let's hope the funding is tucked away somewhere.

    Agree with all above, Taylor is naturally a left back who gets forward superbly and puts wonderful crosses in, but beradi has slotted in well and let no one down, he also deserves his chance, at right back ayling seems again better at attacking, where this all leaves beradi only monk can answer.

    Only wish it could happen on the right side as well. And this isn't another bagging Sacko session !...haha. But that does appear to be one of his weaker areas at present. Can cause defence problems, but need more end result.
