Every time I have watched them this season, Barnes has been playing as a No. 10, just behind the striker.

Dallas isn't a left sided player, he's right footed
Well I'm surprised at that as he has played much of his career down the left, he certainly looked more comfortable when he was switched from the right to left flank in our defeat at Blackburn, he got murdered in the first 20 minutes that day

I thought the same last season that he was a left footed left sided mid....he's not he's the opposite

From reading WBA forum youre right.

But he tends to drift to the left more then the right apparently.

Well if you were Darren Moore, the albion Manager, the first thing you would surely say to Barnes is run at the right back , because basically he isnt one and we dont have one a fit one in our squad :-(

To be fair we don't have a proper right back, haven't for a while apart from Beradi and I'm not sure he's played right back this season ...defensively Ayling is extremely suspect.

Bielsa thinks the best forward players in the league play for WBA.

He named, 15, 16, 19 and 10

Which is, Harvey Barnes, Dwight Gayle, Matt Phillips and Jay Rodriguez.

This is a great quote, Talking about providing an entertaining style of football.

"When a team doesn't get what it deserves, sooner or later the fans punish the lack of results. The lack of tolerance regarding results is stronger than the lack of tolerance when style is not beautiful."

"When clubs are owned by private people, results are more important than anything. But the most attractive thing in football is the beauty of the game."

"But people who invest in football should take precautions because when a team plays bad, you have less fans who want to watch them. A coach like Guardiola, he plays well and wins and he increases the value of the club where he works and the players he has."

"The fact that we are not taking care of the planet, our children will pay the consequences. With football it will be the same because we're destroying football and in the future we'll see the negative effects. Those who have power are responsible for it."

Get Phillips to stick with him just.. Did anyone else like phillips playing at the back?

Seems the man can do anything at the moment and to be fair to him, he seems to be up for any sacrifice for the team.

Both are much better than Dallas as it's their natural position

Dallas was ok till asked to defend.

Even Sky mentioned how Kal Naismith the Wigan left winger hardly touched the ball.

When Callum McManaman came on Dallas struggled because he was being asked to do something he cant, defend.

If Harvey Barnes gets at Dallas he will beat him everytime.

Ryan Sessegnon rinsed Dallas when Dallas was playing against him at rb last season.

Barnes would do the same.

Sooo got to try and stop Dallas having to defend.
