  • Furlong - Defensive Ability

    In general I have been pleased with performances of our youngsters since the New Year. One exception has been Darnell's defensive lapses. Yesterday they showed up again and in my opinion were the main cause of the two goals we conceded. Apart from this he had a good game, creating a goal and getting down the wing. However his defensive positioning continues to be exposed and he frequently allows his 'wide' playing attacker (whether winger or full back) too much space in the penalty box. I was hoping that with experience this would be sorted out but no sure. What do others think?

    For me the first goal he had to come to the centre because we lost our shape. If he had stayed wide and they had put ball centre and scored Thread would have been why did he not tuck in. Think your being overly harsh

    Second goal 6ft player beaten in air by 6ft 7 player!!!!! It happens

      Personally think he’s been excellent and much better than anyone else who has played in the right wingback / fullback position this season.

        Think he’s coming along nicely a lot more confident. Amazing what a run of games does

            Good player. All young defenders have their mishaps, and perhaps Darnell has developed a little slower than some other players do. He hasn't had an easy path though. Chucked into first team football in the top flight way too early. Then had to get his head around not being in the first team picture, going out on loan to League 1, etc.

            Personally I think he'll go on to have a great career for us. As a few have pointed out as well, I could see him transitioning to central defense at some stage too.

                        He has played well, but a CB? Not in a million years.

                              I also have been mostly pleased with Furlong, he seems to be maturing into a useful defender, I did state in the match thread that he had to do better on both their goals!
