    I am just saying that Milito can be the emergency rightack. Ramos who started as a rightback could also be the other emergency rightback.

    Absolutely.

    Center back is a harder position to play especially defensively. Militao is a center back for sure, especially at his height and size.

    doesn’t mean he can’t fill in at RB or LB if needed but I’d prefer he plays CB

    Ramos is never playing RB again. He was such a disaster out there. There's no reason to send Odri out right now.

    I’m surprised when people have a go at Vinicius to the extent they do as if we haven’t seen young players play poor at first and turn into great players here before.

    The talent is there.

    He's been a disaster, and the coach does not trust him. I'd say there is no reason to keep him right now. I think Ramos was used as an example of a CB that can play RB, not as a proposed solution. The backups are Nacho and Militao, both of whom have had decent experience in that position.

    In my experience, unless you can cross well off your weaker foot you are half the player at fullback.

    I can play all positions across the pitch apart from CB (too small) and LB (can’t cross well on the run off my left foot).

    But we already have some complaining here about Mendy, why? Certainly not because he can’t defend, but how much they think he lacks in attack, in a team where attack is equally as important as defending for our fullbacks with regards to how we play , getting the ball out wide more often than not and endless crossing, (this still exists)

    playing fullback is not as easy as some are making it seem, IMO it’s a specialist position like any other on the pitch, I’m sure Militao is relatively capable there, but I don’t see the need to rid ourselves of Odri at this time when we remain in three comps , although as I said before I think Nacho will be the main beneficiary if he does leave.

    They are being silly.

    Then in years when we mock them and remind them of how much they insulted a teenager for not playing like a hardened veteran they will all deny it wver happened.

    These guys make terrible takes and never own them.

    More interesting comments from Kylian.

    Regarding the future of his career, rough translation: “I am inspired by what Cristiano achieved. It’s too late to follow the way of Messi’s career, I would have had to stay at Monaco, at one club. Without taking anything away from Messi, I must now inspire myself in the career of Cristiano”

    You don't find it weird that he's comparing himself to Messi and Ronaldo when he's not even 1/10th of the way yet?
