Re: Ashley Young yes or no

Left back is possibly our strongest position.

Dwight only plays left wing.

I’m struggling to see where Young fits.

Having said that his personality seems top notch and he was an excellent player.

If he played on the right he would be a great addition. Maybe he could do that Ive just not seen it.
