Would Archie Gray be a better understudy to Trent, for the inverted RB, than Conor Bradley?

Now, I think Conor Bradley is terrific and has a bright future but is he more of a tradition RB, providing width on the wing.

I've not seen enough of Archie Gray to have a strong opinion but certainly highly rated.

Just throwing it out there!

With the way Slot utilises his wingers, Bradley could very easily play RW to be fair. Wouldn’t write him off just yet.

Not writing him off in the slightest. He's terrific

. and that's a good shout about RW. We need width especially if the RB inverts.

My point was really more about how the system works if Trent is not available. He is quite unique and yet we need a deputy who is comfortable in midfield. JG is not the answer either.

Archie Gray has an interesting profile. Played mostly RB last season but really a midfielder.

Just wondering if there's something in the plan. Maybe we buy him and loan back to Leeds for next season. He will then be all primed for when Trent goes to Real Madrid on a Bosman.

Bajetic has played a couple of games at RB for us.

Not sure if he could an inverted fullback answer.

Bradleys good enough to learn Slots ways he's superb, Trent will have to up his game these next few years to keep him out of the side.

Bradley the understudy. he got to be the main man there . Trent can go in midfield. if anything Gray would be the understudy to Bradley.

{Ed002's Note - Archie Gray (DM/CM/RB) Leeds kiddie having an excellent season in the Championship and showing versatility. Will not be for sale but Leeds have noted Crystal Palace have enquired. Scouts from Manchester United, West Ham, Liverpool and Spurs have attended games but it would be a waste of the player unless these clubs are looking to utilise him in the first team with all having preferred options. Borussia Dortmund or Bayern Munich may provide a wildcard solution. Expect him to stay.}

Id agree JK. I don't like the system but my biggest problem with it was that the style shouldn't rely on a single person, which it did with all others failing to fill in for Trent properly on this role last season.
I would tweak it so a CB steps up rather than the full back invertz like City do with Stones and Ake, Walker, Akanji and the other one all being capable at full back and CB so they can transition in and out of a back 3 and 4 easily and quickly, spreading out and tucking in as necessary with Stone just needing to drop straight back rather than back and across. Simpler and easier to stick to in transitions.
We could do this easily with Bajcetic and Endo both being capable at CB and CDM (Bajcetic played CB his whole youth career and Endo has played CB previously as well.

Why would he play understudy to Trent? Connor is the better player by leaps and bounds.

03 Jun 2024 21:24:05
Conor is a good player with high ceiling but Trent is world class.

Let's just be honest and keep things in proportion.

04 Jun 2024 01:01:31
Jaynwa. Bradley is a better defender than Trent . Play trent were he wants to play and that is midfield and the jury is out on wether he is world class. he might be when he plays midfield but definitely not when at right back.

{Ed001's Note - utter crap. Trent is world class at right-back, it is nonsense to suggest he isn't. And he will play anywhere if asked to for Liverpool. Why so many people think he is crap at defending, just because he was asked to play a role that left him exposed is beyond me.}

Subjective opinions will be the death of us all haha.

04 Jun 2024 17:28:52
How is Trent world class at right back me his defending is not up to scratch n that is before this stupid inverted role. he is great going forward, can pass a ball like Glen hoddle but he a defender first . if he has to play midfield then he could be world class in that position .

{Ed001's Note - if you say so, but you are just another one fooled by the crap in the media. He plays as instructed.}
