That’s not to say I don’t like Canavan, I do, but if we’re to go with a back 3 including Aimson & Watts then i’d prefer Wootton to maybe up the trio.
No way. Wootton is nowhere near as good as Canavan. He might look good in a friendly but last season it was Canavan who held the defence together. Personally I wouldn't have Wootton or Conor Grant near the first team.
I disagree, and I’m not basing that view in the slightest on yesterday’s friendly - I didn’t even watch it. I’m basing it on the fact that I thought Wootton & Canavan both did extremely well last season and both improved massively from the season before. Wootton especially improved quite literally week on week and by the end of the season he was turning in some fine performances, during which he showed us a new notch to his game - carrying the ball forward and overlapping.
I think to say Canavan ‘held the defence together’ is really quite harsh on Wootton and also on Sawyer.
I think Wootton has improved massively.
Wootton is capable on the ball and the one that brings it out from the back. Canavan is an organiser and always instructs others on positioning.
Individually good but I’m always nervous when they play together as neither have much pace which draws the DCM back deep to help out when he could be slightly further up the field to receive the ball on a counter.
