Tav left Wing ?

We have tried him on the right wing and central, why not try him on the left wing , as he IS left footed ?
That would allow one of the right footed wingers ( Jones , Hernandez, Watmore ) to play RW , and one of Watmore or Hernandez to play as a no10 behind Sporar.
Play square pegs in square holes .

He never plays on the left , and he is left footed !
Come on Neil , give it a go , nowt to lose , lots to gain .
I would also suggest , Siliki as LB until Bola is back , as he is the only other left footed player , and could actually do a job there as he can tackle and has pace.
Dijksteel and Siliki as RB and LB would give us pace to cover the more immobile centre halves .
Forget Siliki signed as a midfielder, ( where he struggles ) put him LB and we may have a player of use.

I’m sure it’s been considered. Siliki at LB that is

You feel the lad can play anywhere at the minute.⚽
Jones is right footed predominantly so should be more of a threat on the right where he doesn't have to stop and cut back onto his right as he does on the left wing.
Same with Watmore , Hernandez, they come inside because they naturally want to play with their best foot.

Play left footers on the left , ( Tav, Siliki , Bola )
Right footers on the right ( Dijksteel, Jones, Hernandez, Watmore , Howson , Hall , Fry , Crooks )
Most are capable of using both feet, but make it simple.

Didn't he start his career playing wide-left? I remember him scoring vs Sunderland on his home debut and he was playing on the left.

Downing played a disguised pass through to Braithwaite, Braithwaite played a ball across the face of the goal and Tav was there to tap it in.

We are going nowhere with Tav in the team. Makes bad decisions, does not score goals, does not make goals. He dribbles, he looks up, he shoots, he misses.

Needs to be on the bench for a few games.

Tave needs to be dropped and given time out to think about what type of footballer he actually wants to be.

Hopefully he'll decide to be a team player and then come back in and not play like it's him against the world.
