'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Last Season's Back Four All To Go?

With the departure of James Collins, and links surrounding Richard Dunne and Alan Hutton, has Stephen Warnock now had his card marked?

I'd actually missed this bit of the Warnock saga over the last few days and just assumed - wrongly - that he had been rotated out of the squad again or had picked up a knock, I hadn't actually realised he was left at home ala Hutton.

Then again, you lot don't call be speedy for nothing do you!

Speaking to the Birmingham Mail following the Bremen game, Paul Lambert was non committal in his comments, in fact they very much resemble anything he has said about Hutton since joining:

'I decided to go with that squad there that came over, and that's all there is to it. There's no update on Stephen Warnock or anything like that. He's done really really fine, but those were the ones I decided to bring and that's all that I'll talk about it really.'

Was it an opportunity for Lambert to look more at Enda Stevens, and it would of course add logic to the move of putting Fabian Delph in at left back to see the game out as well - see if he could cover the role, because you'd presume had Matthew Lowton been fit it's possible Eric Lichaj would've again been trialled there as Lambert's sums up whether or not he needs to invest in another left back this season, should we now be open to offers for Warnock which the Mail implies and many fans have hoped - again he hasn't really impressed this pre season either and earnt himself another chance?

If there was an injury issue, Lambert would've said, so the only summation that makes sense is like Hutton, Warnock is off given a suitable bid because you don't leave players at home lightly and if they are in your plans do you?
