Can we have some of these dime a dozen midfielders please?I know its hard to be optimistic at the moment but the injuries do have an upside. Players get tested early in their careers and have to play in positions that they normally wouldn't and they learn from these experiences.
I thought about this when McKay had to take Hawkins when Walker went forward. Without Brown's injury this would not have happened. McKay had a very good game and no one would have been confident about his ability to take on one of the league 'monsters' at the start of the season. McKay will have gained a lot from the match.
McKay will be a key defender for many years and you build team around a pack of elite mid fielders and key position players. Mid fielders are a dime a dozen but a centre half back is hard to find.
