AscotexgunnerPepe the HorsemanAscotexgunner We have two of the worst fullbacks in the championship. Gunter and Blackett were utterly clueless and are easily beaten for pace. Blackett has the turning circle of an oil tanker. I know we are fifth but I feel the playoffs are slipping away. Fulham are on the march and I think we may be the ones who suffer and drop out.
Blackett was playing centreback.
Indeed you are correct but he's been playing in the full back role most of the time, and when you saw his mistake yesterday and the speed of recovery you realise that....like Gunter....he is so slow and its costing us points whether he's fullback or central defence.
What ever else is thrown at Gunter, I really would challenge the assertion that he is slow. I suspect he is amongst the faster players in our squad. Perhaps someone has access to the data to confirm or shoot down that claim.
