    Why give Bacuna a new contract when he’s clearly not a right back and not as good as our other attacking options?

      Bencey, I suspect Sherwood just likes Bacuna’s attitude, in that he’ll give his all and do what he’s told.
      Which is great.
      But if you can’t defend, yet are marked as a right back by the manager…..
      well, it’s a worry, imo.

      If Traore fires as we expect, Bacuna has no chance as a right side attacker, injuries apart, so it leaves him nowhere else to play. Hence the RB option.

      For me, Traore plays in front of Hutton.
      One is an outlandish attacker, the other is a better defender, but can go forward and overlap/cross if required
      It seems better balanced, to me, than traore and Bacuna, but relegates Bacuna to the bench.
      Something it seems Sherwood just doesn’t want.

    He can play CM as well, don’t forget. RW/RB/CM cover is what we need and Bacuna’s a good player to have for that cover. I’d take him any day over Hutton so if he has to challenge Ilori for RB, fine.

Right or Wrong? What do YOU think?
