If we get a right back, where would Olof play?
Even though Olof Mellberg has done very well whilst playing at right-back this season, I was wondering where he would play if we were to sign a real right-back in the transfer window?
I believe that the major downfall to playing Melly at RB is that he often lacks the killer instinct and can not cross to save his life. Against Tottenham there was so much space down the right hand side that we could have taken advantage of is we had a natural right back.
If Curtis Davies continues to play like this then it is very unlikely that he will be dropped for Melberg to go back into a position that he hasn't played in for 6 months. And in my opinion Zat Knight will need some type of miracle in order to become a first team regular once more.
To be honest I don't think that I would be too bothered to see him leave. He is thirty now and is obviously not 100% committed to the club as he has done nothing but do nothing to silence the persistent speculation linking him with a move to Juventus. I would definitely be much much more upset if it emerged that Martin Laursen were to leave the club.
Bosingwa seems almost 100% certain not to be plying his trade at Villa Park next season and other links such as Seville's highly rated RB, Crespo are also unlikely has he has just signed a new deal to keep him at the club until 2011, which has a 10m release clause. Valencia's Portuguese RB Miguel has also been linked.
My personal favourite would be Justin Hoyte, fast, strong and can attack well plus the fact that he ha been trained all his life with the magician that is Arsene Wenger.
