Just read that Antonee Robinson had a good game against France playing against Mbappe, Griezman and Pogba. I know it's only a friendly and they don't wanna get injured before World Cup, but maybe he could rotate with Baines next season?

With so much speculation about, it’s impossible to know how much truth there is in any of it. Press know we’re in the market for players in a number of positions and we’re linked with any that are available. Brands said himself that the phone hasn’t stopped ringing. You don’t need to find players any more, they find you!

{Ed025's Note - your right blue mate..

Antonee Robinson is already our player though, was on loan at Bolton last season. Lizarazu sung his praises, he was one of the best left backs of the last few decades in his prime.

Could we go through another season with Baines as our only proven LB?

13 Jun 2018 10:00:24
Smit666, who do you prefer as backup to Coleman? Kenny a youth player through the ranks or Martina a proven RB with PL experience? If the management think either Robinson or Connolly are good enough understudies why bring in a journeyman as a backup. If they want to replace Baines then that's different.

Not a direct response to your post Oilblue. Was just making the point that all speculation is, at the moment, just that. I don’t know a lot about Robinson other than he got good reviews at Bolton too. I guess the question is, is his development suited better to playing a role from the bench for us, or in the first team for another team? We have a lot of youngsters, but we need quality and experience on our bench too.

And what do we do if Baines and/ or Robinson get injured?
Put Martina back in?

Coleman 1st choice, Kenny 2nd and Martina 3rd.

"Proven" premier league RB? . That's rather optimistic sa90, you're definitely a glass is half full kind of guy. Baines, Kenny, Martina for me. Kenny was decent last year, more game time will only help develop him further so he has to be ahead of Martina, I think he's a better player too.

I know what you're saying Blue, it's a tricky one. If he goes out on loan he should get guaranteed game time. But then we would probably need to pay out for a top LB to compete with Baines.
I suppose we'll just have to follow Brands' and Silva's opinion on this one mate.

13 Jun 2018 17:08:15
Smit666 the management have stated that the squad is far too big and we need to get reduce the size of the squad before we bring in additions. So having 3 RB and 3 LB just in case is probably too many players. I would look at two for each position with any additional players coming from the U23 postional change ie CB or midfield filling in or loan if required. I hope we sell Martina as I don't think he is good enough but I wouldn't necessarily bring in another LFB unless I wanted to replace Baines and use him as the back up.

Sa90 Baines has one season left at best and it is too early this season and next for Robinson. We need someone integrated with a view to being no1 when Baines moves on or breaks down.
Most positions on the field can be covered by moving players around but L/ RB is a bit different, especially in the prem. If we are having a young understudy we need experienced cover.
