Yates injured?


Recommended Posts

Good luck to the lad, great servant to the club, versatile, 100% committed and the recipient of many unwarranted comments.

 

I concur. I'm gutted about this news, I think he's a big loss to the squad, especially with all the radical changes. We certainly need proper cover at right back if he's out for 8 months, what if Purkiss gets a long term problem?

If we have no other player as cover then we either go with one of the centre backs there like Brunos done in a couple of the friendlies or its the young pro Gibbons. Yates strength is that he could cover either full back position.

Interestingly, I suggested when he re-signed that he could have a significant role to play in the dressing room this season and was told I was talking out of my backside!

 

Not by everyone. I have thought the same since the mass ins and outs started happened I felt that the core of experienced FL players (such as Yates, Brown, Grant, Foley, Purkiss) would play a big part in the dressing room. With a load of newcomers, different nationalities, different languages, the club needed that core of experience to bind the squad together.
