Because it is.
Clyne played in the Carabou and when there were literally no other options.
After a decent performance against Utd he wasn’t selected and Milner was.
He WAS JK’s 4th choice fella. You don’t have to agree that he should have been but I honestly don’t get how you argue he wasn’t.
If the other 2 were injured he only plays if we’re short in midfield at the same time.
Doesn't seem conclusive to me, but maybe you're right.
Jürgen was apparently happy enough to lose Clyne for one reason or another at any rate. I assume he has good reasons, but I think it's an unnecessary risk if we don't replace him. Milner is basically cover for both full back positions + CM now. ( I would certainly pick Milner ahead of Moreno at LB.) Fab hasn't played RB for us ( plus looks potentially our best DM, so we want him playing there, not RB). And Gomez, as I said, should stay at CB.
We shouldn't be relying on playing square pegs in round holes if we get a couple of injuries, especially not with the league title at stake. Clyne was a proper out and out full back, and right now we've only got 2 of those left - cos I don't count Moreno, and Camacho is too inexperienced. I don't like us weakening the squad and then keeping our fingers crossed when we've got a PL and CL to play for. Same goes for Origi, if he goes. He's only had 2 or 3 games too, but we might need him at some point (and he's already been worth 2 points when we did need him).
I was pretty confident that Jürgen would replace Clyne, but you're making me think he might not.
Mind you, I had the same doubts about whether he'd bring in a new goalie in the summer. I was pretty sure he would, but a lot of the talk on here was that we didn't need one, and it made me wonder. Glad to say Jürgen didn't let me down.
Not signing a new FB would be nothing like as mad a risk as not signing a new goalie in the summer. It's a relatively small risk, but it's definitely not a negligible one and, with us having our best chance in years of the title, we shouldn't take it. Sign a full back Jürgen!
