Townsend isn't a right winger. He's a left winger who's played on the right. I only mentioned Chadli as he was still on the pitch (playing left side) when Lennon was substituted.
Whys he a left winger? because hes left footed? Where does he play for England? Spurs? QPR?

Some might think this a controversial name to start of this week’s column, but Chadli’s selection in the Good Week pile demonstrates what this is all about. It is not about performance per sae, but more big picture thinking.
Chadli, i like, so please don't anyone take this the wrong way but like so many players that have come to Spurs over the years when i see him play i think that he almost has good pace, can almost turn a right back inside out, can almost head the ball well and can almost shoot well. He's almost a very good player but what have we brought him for?

I have not got the knife out for him, i am just saying that when you buy a player with the intentions of making the team a CL contender you need players who excel at one part of the game of football. In Chadli he in my opinion is no better than the average left winger that we see in the PL, a sort of left sided David Bentley without the hair gel.

I truly hope to be proved wrong on him, and think that now fit he should get a run in the team.

I don't care if you call him a right winger, left winger or centre forward. My point was simply that he is left footed and if he had played on the left could have gone outside the full-back to maintain our width - which he tends not to do on the right as he cuts in to use his stronger foot.

But he doesnt play on the left! Never has. If he was brilliant on the left and could go on the outside of people there, then why has he never played there!

FFS millsey, have a day off mate. Never played there? Do some research.

So why has AVB, Redknapp, Hodgson never played him there?
Hodgson because he would be slated if he picked him for a position that he didn't play for his club. AVB because his tactical set-up uses 'inverted wingers' (the clue is in the title). Redknapp? The man who thinks Bale is a left back? Anybody's guess.

I'm done with this. Have a lovely day.
