why wasn't Sarr by Bowyer? something you know for sure or just your opinion? 

Yes we do need a left back before the start of season

He says ‘i don’t think‘ so it is clearly opinion based on the fact that he often preferred an alternative player in that position

He was on the bench sometimes. 17 times to 26 starts. They had 2 left footed centre backs, 32 year old journeyman Jason Pearce was seemingly a more conservative option, and Sarr a more cultured but defensively mistake prone option.

Sometimes they played in a back 3 together with right sided Lockyer who has today joined Luton.

And I think it's time there was a general discussion about Darragh Lenihan. At centre-back you can get away with a lot because not everyone can see the mistakes you're making. Lenihan struggles big time with his in-the-box positioning.

Take this goal vs Reading. Lenihan completely out of position, Obita can run into the grand open space left by Nyambe who's attempting to cover the lack of an RCB, he can cross to the open lad who Lenihan should be with, or he can aim further for the two lads who've doubled up on Hayden Carter due to Lenihan's absence. Goal ensued.

Or here more recently against Doncaster where number 11 and number 9 just 14 seconds into the game were given all of this space in the box, Lenihan is so deep that they can all arrive into the box, Bell is busy marking 26 and it leaves two players completely unmarked. Against a Championship side we'd have been 1-0 down here.

And this is a little more general, but an issue with our defence in general, including Lenihan, is a lack of urgency to get out when the ball is cleared. Bell plays a shit ball out to their man on the edge and the line meanders out towards the ball carrier. Leaves the shot, and three open players unmarked in the box for him to choose from. Goal ensues.

Just catching up on the days antics... got to say I like these visual breakdowns Joe!

more of these would be very welcome throughout the season! ?

Completely off the point, but loving that the Charlton fans have given him a song to the tune of 'Baby Shark'.

We've really missed a trick not doing the same for Bradley Dack over the last few years

Pretty sure Cameron Carter-Vickers is another player who has been discussed as a loan target.

Was impressive with Luton last season, would be happy with him though would prefer him on a permanent deal. 
 

Also think Sarr would be good buisness on a free transfer, certainly an upgrade on Williams.

I think he has one year left at Spurs so I dont see why they would loan him out.

Loan with a view to buy? Spent a good few years being loaned out to Championship clubs now. Would not be totally against that idea - formed a good partnership with Van Der Horn at Swansea two seasons ago.

Surely after the loan finished he would be a free agent.

Yeah sorry, but anyway would be a good signing. Not really interested in loans unless they have potential to become permanent.
