    A case for our defence

    Some good individual defenders, but collectively? They frighten the life out of me and have all season.

    With what we have available, playing in their proper positions: Kesler, Konsa, Pau, Digne, seems logical.

    A kid at RB is better than a super CB, bungling around at RB. The goal count from our wide right defence is growing, game by game.

    Thankfully for us, Em1 is the best in the business.

    A lot of oppo goals are from crosses from the right so Konsa not being in his usual CB role as well as Mings is a big miss, Pau a very good ball playing defender but not aggressive enough by a long way. Is more to be expected from Emi on crosses, he's unreal with 1 v 1's and snuffing out danger.

    Mmmm, Konsa is missed in the middle, that is true. The double jeopardy being that he is failing to cut out the crosses into our defensive back line, weakened by his absence.

    Our defenders regularly get found out against good teams, is it tactics or personnel?
