The Danny Rose or Ben Davies conundrum
The left back position has been pretty much undisputed for most of this season because of the ongoing injury issues of Danny Rose; however, with our No.3 now looking to be back to full fitness, is there a case to be made for him to replace Ben Davies as the club`s first choice for the last few months of the season?
It`s not a simple 'yes` or 'no` answer in my opinion.
We all have our own thoughts on the England International`s not-so subtle attempts of getting a pay rise from Levy, and the rumours that he could leave the club at the end of the season. But let`s leave that aside for the moment and look purely from a footballing perspective.
Rosey offers a far greater threat going forward, largely down to his explosive pace and his dribbling abilities that enables him to go inside and out of the opposing midfield and defences.
In his absence, Davies has certainly been a solid presence at full back and has delivered a fair few assists - no more so than the tantalising cross for Harry in the north London derby - but as we hit the business end of the season would we not benefit from this injection of pace from the wide areas; especially as we are facing a lot of struggling sides in the run-in that are likely to sit back against us.
I don`t think it is any coincidence that we started to make great inroads in the 2nd half against Rochdale when Danny started to get up and down the left wing, creating ample space for Dele and Son to exploit centrally.
It is a tough call for Poch to make to restore him, but one that is necessary if we are going to ensure we finish in the top four.
