Still on the fence with Mayor, would like to see what he can do with a stronger defence before i fully make my mind up
For me its a wingback that does have the energy to get up and down and defend. The problem I'm seeing time and time again is that the right or left CB is being drawn out to close down the opposition R/L winger because our WB can't get back in time to cover. This leaves us with space in the middle which Fornah/McLeod etc don't really fill. If our WB's can get back and cover those bottom corners then our back 3 can stay tight. If Lowe persists in sticking with this formation he needs WB's with an abundance of energy. Joe Edwards is a prime example (although I'd prefer he played in the CDM role)....G Cooper is not a good example.
