    It's amazing how good players become when they lose their place in the team/leave. Cedric's improvement has been particularly breathtaking.

    The general consensus appears to be of approval with how RH is doing.
    In which case perhaps we can allow him to decide the way forward for our team.
    Exactly. The bloke would have joined knowing the likely transfer position, and won't hang around if the board tuck him up. Sad reality is that the noisy minority on here think know more than the manager they claim to have faith in.

    its probably more that he was our only Real experienced right back before ralph started playing Valery and now we are relying fully on inexperienced kids in that position its a bit like loaning out ings gabbi Austin and long and relying on obafemi and barnes up front

    It would be, if obafemi and barnes had replaced them and done at least as well.

    Not really. He's still better than all the right backs at the club now. That's all people are saying.

    You could also make a similar claim about Valery who is being hyped to the rafters far more than people saying Cedric is "amazing".

    Cedric was a real problem at RB. Constantly targetted and exposed by opposition managers. He was just physically too short and too easily pushed off the ball.
    I'm pleased for him that he has a new challenge at Inter but for me Valery is an improvement. Stephens can play RB if necessary as can Targett.

    It's all good nothing to see.RB position can be sorted in the summer.

    What we do need is another CB and or striker. Not vital but it would be useful.

    Eh, there's zero chance that RH would've refused the chance to add some pace to the squad, so let's not pretend that this is a transfer window tactical masterclass from the club.

    Our current preferred formation requires a significant attacking contribution from our fullbacks, but our first choice right back is currently too nervy to cross the ball.

    Whether the thinning of the squad costs us is only going to be down to luck.

    Come off it. Ramsay has played all of 1 game hasn't he? How can anyone be confident he is better backup than Cedric, a seasoned international?

    Crazy to leave ourselves so exposed, as even Valery can't be described as being a solid regular yet. You can be sure it won't have escaped the notice of our opponents between now and the end of the season that it's a weak area for us.

    Agree with that. Cedric was/is better than Valery. And we have just loaned him out

    Just bizarre

    It is a weak area. It was a weak area before with Cedric that opposition exposed too.

    It just highlights how far we have fallen that people are suddenly OK with our youth team players becoming first choice. I want them to get chances but not be thrust into virtually our only option.

    Yes, agree! But what have we done to address it? Made it even weaker as it stands!

    We are literally risking everything on staying up. It's either misguided genius or utter stupidity.

    Crouch to score at the weekend. As sure a reminder of our transfer non-activity as could be predicted. At least Cedric won't be marking him...

    Well if you were at the game last night, you might have seen that things seemed to be OK. Of course playing 3-5-2 means that RB is more a RWB, which if our preferred formation, things look to be OK. As has been mentioned, Lemina can also play there, as well as JWP. Going to a back 4 is a little trickier.

    But we get it. Whinge whinge ****ing whinge.

    What are your thought on our RB situation. A key position for us?

    Lemina is injured. When was the last time he played right back?

    Valery is way over hyped.

    Clearly Ralph think having a youngster or the likes of jwp covering valery is preferable to having Cedric sulking out the place.

    Nothing happening - move was dependent on Austin moving om apparently, the assumption was he would.

    So in your mind no one is allowed to be a bit disappointed that we failed to bring anyone in during the window despite still being close to the relegation zone?
