Thread: Vaulks to retain the right back position....

  1. #1

    Vaulks to retain the right back position....

    Have to agree with gwru that Vaulks was made for this position.

    Forget Emmanuelle or Cummings this role is for Vaulks'.

    Strong in the tackle and an eye for the ball and barely put a foot wrong all last night.

    Vaulks has stated he doesn't want to play there but he is outstanding when doing so. Cast your mind back to the Derby game last season. No nonsense tackling saw both their subs off that attempted to mix it with him, had to laugh at that one. He is certainly a very tough player to play against.

    Yes he can be called upon to bolster midfield if needed but, at the moment it ain't squeaking Mr Warne so don't oil it by changing what looked a good back four last night.

    Looked like he had allways played there plus we can use his long throw from full back could become a really good player for us

    Nope. Cummings will be there when he's fit enough to get back on pitch.

    Agree he had a good game but he's failed there in other games

    He won't be consistent enough at RB , Cummings is a better one imo more solid

    Vaulks did well last night and will probably keep the shirt for Saturday.
    I agree with MT though in that Cummings will probably be first choice when he's fit. He is a specialist right back after all.

    Its a dangerous game some times playing players out of position they will get caught out against an out & out winger,but can't fault his commitment.

    Cummings is too cautious and only commands his area where as Vaulks has the nerve and agility to push up and force the game away from our defensive position.

    All about opinions at the end of the day and I respect everyone's as we all see the players and a game in our own prospective.

    Sorry bring. Have to agree with others. Cummings and possibly Emmanuel are better defenders than vaulks. Though He's never let us down when called up

    Well I can only say that hope either one of us don't have to eat our words

    I have put your informed comments on goalkeeping and the role of the modern full back in my scrap book. When can we hope to see you dealing with midfield and attack?

    My attacking strategy is simplistic but very effective ie big black lad upfront.

    Warney has gone half way and got a 6 ft 5 ins white fella with a tan.

    My only worry is whether he has enough fast twitch fibres but we will have to see on that one.

    Midfield seems to be sorted by Warney without my help.

    I am pleased that you enjoy my contributions which come from 50 years of watching football and playing in the same team as Geeter at RGS.

    Enjoy your day monty

    Big black lad up front? Are you advocating JCH?

    They are blinkered on here. Vaulks is a Emlyne, Gerrard type player admittedly a league or 2 down. Got the basic skills but got that spirit/passion in his play. Ist name on the team sheet for me. Cummings when fit good enough but Vaulks he's the best Right back at the club no question. Could see tues he got used to playing there again. A natural there. Play him midfield if we are short there.

    Agree there gwru most versatile player at the club.Shown a lot of loyalty too by choosing to stay after last season's misery

    The formation 4-5-1 suits us at the moment with Moore being superb and the defence being well, not fantastic. We also have some great pace out wide and plenty of decent crosses going into the box enabling us to create plenty of chances.

    If we revert back to 4-4-2 now I dont think it would bear the same fruits, as for Vaulks he played well but has been caught out before, that said the more he plays at RB the better he will become

    "been caught out before"can be applied to all our defenders gm
