Do our full backs ever get 4 games on the bounce, barring injury or pissing Poch off of course.
Rose and Walker used to play just about every single game from what I remember before Poch started rotating them like 3/4 of the way through the 15/16 season.

They may not get exactly 4 on the bounce but one may play twice, be somewhat rested or not selected for the 3rd and continue to play the next few but there would still be a visible first choice, apart from at RB when we weren't sure who was preferred out of Trippier and Aurier. What I mean is that up to now, even when fit Rose has clearly been behind Davies in the pecking order, even if filling in from time to time and there certainly hasn't been some sort of even rotation between the two, but I would just like to see the roles slightly reversed for a period to see what we can get out of Rose.

I don't think Rose has ever been fully fit until right now since the 15/16 season.

Yeah you're probably right, but he'd been in the squad and available for selection for the second half or back end of last season. My thought since he's come back from injury is that he's not gonna excel much playing the odd single game to then be sat out for the next few again.

He'd have to do a lot to reach Mendy's level as well.
And I think that's about fitness more than ability. Both players have suffered long-term injuries. Don't think there's much difference in level when both are at prime fitness. Mendy's younger, which helps him. It just remains to be seen whether Danny can sustain his fitness.

Might be worth starting him tomorrow to negate their pace and push their fullback back. He can do that a bit better than Davis because of his pace.

I think him starting tomorrow is an absolute must but not because of the pace, more so because he provides a varied attacking threat from the left. Yes he has the pace to go down the outside but he can also come on the inside and also shoot from range. Most of our play needs to be down the wings to overcome Liverpool's counter press

Two things:

Is Danny Rose alive?

Mendy mentioned above. Worst player on the pitch in our match with city. They have unlimited funds and still have a stinker.

Yes they have and yet some numpties think shifting Trippier is a good idea.
And Rose.
And Davies.
And Aurier as he's obviously not up to it.
Squad wise we've still got very good fullbacks compared to other clubs.
Who are these full backs we can afford who improve us?
Or hasn't anyone thought that far ahead.

Probably upset the natives again with this post but fk 'em lol (not butt fk them. That's completely different).

Don't know that anyone would consider Mendy a stinker. Maybe he didn't have a great game, but he's played really well this season as been highlighted by several pundits. He's also just coming off a knee injury which are historically tough on footballers.

He absolutely had a stinker, the problem is we didn't capitalise on his mistakes. He is a very decent player though.

Yeah player had 1 bad game and suddenly he's shit, lol love the logic.

mendy is obviously a good player and one of the best LB's in the league, Danny has some way to go to reach him, he needs to get fit for starters.

Shifting Trippier would be a good idea as his defense consistenly disappoints and he is likely to fetch the biggest sum. We have 2 other players I think a lot of us would like to see more of in that position as well.

Rose is crocked and Davies is as average as it gets. Why is it so wrong to have the opinion that we should be looking for better? We played our best football with 2 fullbacks bombing the field all day long and stretching the opposition. We should look to go back to that style of play. Trippier and Davies just flat out cannot do it due to their physical limitations.

There is no other top team that play with fullbacks as slow as ours.
