Mauricio Pochettino has attempted to explain why Tottenham did not buy a new right-back in the summer and also why midfielder Moussa Sissoko is likely to play in the role at Brighton on Saturday afternoon.

This bullocks thinking is why we are in such a state... KWP, Aurier, Foyth not good enough as primary right back. Wan Bassaka was available for a decent price plus homegrown and would have sorted us for the next 10 years...

He starts by naming all our defenders and then continues on and says that no one has impressed him at rb, and that's why Sissoko played there. It's just weird.

Give this man a shovel and he just keeps on making the hole bigger and deeper.

Full backs are becoming/have become one of the key areas in the league.

Just look at Liverpool and Leicester for proof and why the most talented manager on the planet Guardiola chose to prioritise full backs for City.

Feels incredibly naive to try and show horn a player into such a key role or hope one of our existing RBs come good.

In the game. Much has to do with the fact that inside forwards are important too, so you need good fullbacks to counter that.

We lost so much of our style and effectiveness when we sold Walker and Rose succumbed to injuries.
