I was thinking before about magloire. He is supposedly faster than neymar and one of the fastest players in Europe.

who decided he should play CB. 

I am in no way saying the decision to play him there is wrong as obviously a lot of better qualified people who see him day in day out clearly know more but isn’t it a waste of his main asset.

plenty of players convert to different positions over the years, Dublin, Sutton etc.

i just wondered why or how he ended up at CB and not on the wing/ striker.

Seems a waste of a real quality attribute to me. Teach the lad to cross and shoot and let him loose . His tracking back would be excellent with his speed and tackling.

this is all probably bollocks and he is a natural CB but I thought I’d throw it out there

Thought the same thing tbh.

Apparently quicker than Mbappe. 

My guess would be that he couldn't hit a barn door. 

Pace is not the be all and end all for a striker, ask Usain Bolt.

Very true, however magloire is a professional footballer, bolt was a fit and lightening fast version of one of us lot trying to play.

He can already head, pass, control, use his strength etc so the ability with the ball is already their. He trains day in day out. I would expect any player from the 92 in any position to be able to cross and shoot. How well he could perfect it is why they train every day

Pace in a central defensive position is essential for the modern game. So many teams play on the front foot with a high press that recovery speed and negating quick counters is essential. Especially if you are to push your own back line forwards and be in the front foot.

Its why we can all see that Kyle Walker should be a right sided CB now.

I think Nyambe will go the same way - probably more specialist in a back three

Some players need the game in front of them and Tyler is that type, he would be lost played further forward its all about game understanding and understanding your role on the pitch not many players can understand the different roles and positions, Reading the game etc and positional sense, in the different areas of the pitch

he will have been playing centre half and right back all his life from u7 up, the speed is something that develops with age and its a great attribute to have as a centre half

As far as crossing and finishing the ability side of a players game that's something that is natural to a player, a player has certain attributes, you can nurture them and make them better with practise obviously but I think it's a bit late for Tyler to become anything but a top centre half, which I'm sure he will

You probably don't remember " Marshall's Misfits " . How he converted various players from their original positions as young players. Fred Pickering from being an average reserve left back to the second best striker I've ever seen in a Rovers shirt being one. Andy McEvoy from a reserve midfield player to a guy who capable of scoring 30 odd goals a season was another. There were other examples.

You'd think they'd be trying players out in practice matches all the time but who knows today ?

Magloire also played a lot of RB.

I totally agree that certain players can be converted and your right im a bit young for your examples ?and it's happened plenty of times,

but the player needs to be a certain type, it's not for everyone

Sorry guys there was no team sheets or programme and with he squad made up of u18s I couldn't tell you who did what.

a lad called eastham was in goal, mols scored an over head kick. And annesley played at that back. That's all I have , that and the pitch was so misshapen the keeper could touch the cross bar in the centre of his goal but couldn't reach it at the posts. Hard surface to play on.

A decent performance tonight by an Under-23 team that was largely made up of the Under-18's.  Jordan Eastham saved a penalty in the first half and looked fairly assured in goal.  The defence was very well organised by Louie Annesley, who looked solid at the back.  Daniel Pike was his usual steady self at left-back and continues to look a very good prospect.  Stef Mols scored a spectacular overhead kick to give us the lead and Jack Vale came on at the interval and quickly made it two.  There were a number of decent performances from the likes of Zimba, Boyomo and Brennan but Mols was really outstanding.  Brad Lyons ought to have scored early on with a well worked move.

Who is the number 11? Looked a bit handy, quite quick. Lovely, lovely overhead kick goal. If that happened in the first team in a competitive match it'd be our goal of the season.
