Agreed. I'm not sure that we have sufficiently strengthened our defence from last season (yet). I still trust Nigel to get it right, but it might take a while. Missing out on Naylor was a blow, as it would have enabled Perch to play at right back.
That said .... Great result & performance today!
Macca done a fine job at left back and did better than Mal. Theres not many decent left backs in this league and Nigel isn't going to spend for the sake of it.
Gordon, played at right back all his career but not a defender because a grumpy stags fan expects him to be as good as Kyle Walker.... He's one of our most exciting players.
One thing people will get used to, if a player isn't performing and is letting Nigel down, he will move on and quickly rectify the problem. If theres a player or two he missed on out, if needed he'll go and get them in January.
