Fulham in for Spurs’ Danny Rose
In the 2012 Olympics GB manager Stuart Pearce – a former left-back – came to the conclusion that Ryan Bertrand, Neil Taylor and Danny Rose were all too good to leave out of his team. That they are all left-backs didn’t trouble Stuart: he would fit them in regardless. So Taylor played right back, Rose played in midfield, and Bertrand got to be the round peg. (Had one-time left-back Gareth Bale not taken himself out of the squad Stuart could have really gone nuts with this concept).
Anyway, it didn’t work that well.
Hmmm. Have you noticed what I’ve noticed?
Fulham started the window after Ryan Bertrand.
We’re now in for Neil Taylor.
You can bet your life that Danny Rose is next on the list.
No? Well let’s see, shall we?
