If we were looking for a replacement for Davies, and if he went somewhere else, then wouldn't we want a player that would replicate Rose's athleticism? The current system(s) that our dear leader plays at the moment needs those 2 wing/full backs to cover loads of ground whilst also being super attacking with loads of pace. Defending is of course important but it only seems to be half of the requirement and is decreasing every match. Even a few of our rivals are playing wingers (Rose's original position) as full backs.

This is all down to how frustrated Davies is getting at the moment at Spurs also. Imo he would be silly to be angling for a move right now, but we don't know the discussions or whispers that are going on behind the scenes. He might well also be getting left behind in the wages stakes.

Wouldn't have minded Schlupp before CP nabbed him. Think he would have been good back up for Rose but I'm quite happy with Davies.
