McNeill and Taylor did what was asked and lumped it into the box on a regular basis.

Re: Harry Wilson

Recent history has shown wingers playing on their 'correct' foot to be the fullbacks. Wingers have invariably played on their wrong side.

I notice,however, there have been recent moves amongst some of the big boys to put wingers back on their proper side.

Revolutionary, eh?

Pre-transfer mock injuries are almost always toes.

Not something so you have to prove it, but possibly bad enough to stop you playing.

Toes, the perfect pre-transfer mock injury. Ask Danny Ings.
