I actually don’t think he’d be any good on the wing. His only move on defenders is to get a run on them. He needs to be going at pace before he comes across an defender. As a wing you often are standing when u have to make a move. Look at Adam Johnson on Man City. He actually stops the ball first then he starts his move. Wing play is a dead art. There are very few left in the world.
The problem with Glen Johnson isn’t that he’s out of position…It’s that he doesn’t think (like many English Players). He doesn’t seem to realise the importance of his position. He is too relaxed on the field. It’s like he doesn’t even realise that if he doesn’t stop the cross the ball could get headed in. He’d do the same in attack. Not tracking back, not releasing the ball just coz he doesn’t know what football is about.
He’s going to be a weak link no matter where we play him. Soon the players are going to turn on him. Remember when Carrager almost killed Arbeloa for slack play. Now he’s actually going to kill someone on the field. The only thing saving him now is that he is English and the English are more xenophobic than peeps in the townships.
Its so late for that ouen!
