I have been coming onto to this site for years but haven't posted much in the last few years.
I have a theory on the Dalot signing, everyone is of the opinion that he has been as an understudy to Valencia but from watching the brief glimpses of him that I could find he has played most of his first team games at LB and I actually believe he is going to be understudy to Ashley Young.
He has good delivery from his right foot and tends to cut back on his right foot and curl a ball into the box almost identical to what Ashley Young does to good effect when he gets forward.
So I believe we will not be signing a LB this summer and will start the next season with Ashley Young at LB and Valencia RB.

Dalot is basically darmians replacement. I wouldn't expect to see him play too often and it could be on either side for now.

Call me old fashioned but I prefer left footed left backs and right footed rightbacks. A right footer player on the left you just show them down the line all the knowing they can't cross with their left.

He is primarily a RB but played on the left after Porto LB first choice Alex Telles injury.

Denis Irwin may disagree with you on that one Schauzer and for the posters old enough and lucky enough to see Irwin, they'd probably all agree he has been our best LB for a number of years.

Also, the reason Young was so successful against Salah was because a lot of wingers now play on the opposite flank so when Salah cut in on his left foot, where Young was showing him, he was also going on to Young's strongest foot, his right!

The thought of going into next season with ashley young and valencia as our two starting wingbacks.

Ports - can't argue with the legend that is Irwin. But I would say Irwin was the exception to the rule for me plus he had giggs in front of him swinging in lefties which was a help, my memory might be fading but in my minds eye I can recollect that irwin could swing in a cross with his left aswell?

Really can't do another season of Valencia and Young as our wingbacks. Not to mind Jones and Smalling as our center backs. If there is a God.

There is nothing more frustrating to me to see left backs cut back in on their right to cross. It’s predictable, easier to defend, and gives centre halves times to set themselves. We need more quakity crosses from the byline on both flanks.

Id like to see Young play at Right back. I think he has more to offer than Valencia.
