Was Ryan Giggs any good with his right foot?

And just to prove you can be the best in the world by being one footed!

I don't know who researched the article above but it wasn't very accurate. Scnellinger, Maldini,Krol,Di Stefano and Cruyff were all right-footed players. Not doubting their ability to use their left foot but none of those players were essentially left-footed.

He was a solid Championship RB and is "slowly" turning into a PL one.
Wardy is coming back into contention now so Hibs will be chuffed

And for the likes of MRG, Murger, Claretonthecoast, all the likers of the 2nd post on this thread, as someone famously once said the one thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about...

Taylor has had 3 seven out of ten games in a row so well done. Fortunately it looks like there is competition for his place now.

Mods - I assume MRG has been banned for his comments at the weekend although it is a bit of a grey area as to what constitutes a banning offence?



I’ve only just seen this. I haven’t been banned and I can’t recall what I had posted that you thought/hoped warranted a banning? Either way, apologies if I offended you/Ward

I'll be amazed if Ward gets back in the team now. As good a player as he has been, from what I've seen of him his legs have gone. In the Barnsley game there was an opportunity for an overlap and Ward looked like he was running through quicksand attempting to run down the left wing.

Was not a Taylor fan (and I would still personally be looking for a new left back in the summer), but to his credit he has been really solid in this run since the Everton game.

Links well with McNeil as well.

I thought Ward looked pretty fit at the Barnsley game considering he hadn't played for 3 months. I'd still have him over Taylor once he's 100%

I’ve been saying it for months, I have it on good authority that there’s a serious issue with both of his knees. I genuinely hope the recent surgery has cleared it up because his game management could be very useful towards the end of the season.
