How is he driving Sweeney out? Nothing wrong with competition for the RB positionYes, first choice cover for two positions in a season with lots of ‘three games a week’ seems like quite a big and important job. So I am struggling to see why MT appears to want to drive Sweeney out of the club.
it was me who suggested that. The basis is a) MT has said that he has told certain players that they won’t play much and are free to leave which would improve the budget for further signings b) MT then set out that his priorities for new signings were in precisely the two positions that Sweeney has played c) it looks like the number two shirt has been taken away from Sweeney and given to Capriice, without him having to battle it out with Sweeney for the RB spot first. Putting those three things together...Perhaps he is. MT did mention that Caprice was good at covering the back post. But my point was is there a rumour that MT wants to.get rid?
He is going to be a starter. He played 31 games for Scunny last season starting regularly until lockdown. Warren was more of a gamble as he was in and out with injuries at Yeovil the season before we signed him.Is McArdle a Warren-esque back up and we aim to resign/get another CB (now there’s rumours of Chrisene/Watkins) or is he a starter?
Rob Edwards was 33 when he signed for us.I'm not sure why there is concern for McArdle's age. So long as he's fit 33 is no problem at all and should have a good few years left in him yet. There have been premier league centre halves older than 33 and still perform at the highest level. I'd sooner have a 33 year old fit centre half than a 23 year old fit centre half. Experience counts for a lot in that position.
