Ayling Out?

Post by andrewjohnsmith » Fri Apr 20, 2018 3:05 pm

Not sure how this one started but saw it a few times on the news feed this morning. Phil Hay (Yorkshire Evening Post) even mentioned it briefly. I can see that we have a few right backs with Coyle coming back and Berardi. Yiadom from Barnsley has been heavily mentioned too, although I'd picture him as a LB/RB back up. But I think Ayling offers so much more. He's the best full back at the club an even better than that offers coverage at center back. Personally I'd forget Yiadom with Ayling/Coyle on the right and DeBock/Berardi/Pearce on the left. Keep what we have and don't make a change. Thoughts?
I was there when Batty scored

Ayling is a good right back. Not bad but not outstanding.

He is not one of the players I would rather see leave us, but nor would I say he was a must-keep. But of course the main issue is, if he does go, then his replacement must be better than him.

As opposed to him being missing during many of his matches before his injury??

I know Hector but what he does give us outweighs his defensive frialties

Ayling & Coyle back will be a big plus next season

I think Ayling was one of our most consistent performers before his injury and always looked decent when I saw him. Given our defensive form since his injury, he clearly had a role in organising the back four.

I'd lose Berardi over him tbh.

I'm alright thanks, Leon. Still very busy, so I don't have much time to post, but I've been lurking recently due to my (and seemingly everyone's) overall malaise.

How are you doing?

Ayling is definitely one to keep, his season went great, average, injured but he did well filling in at CB early in the season. A fit and focused Ayling next season will be a big boost as he’s always a threat going forward down the right.

Well said Andrew. Ayling always gives 100 percent, has a superb engine and gets about the pitch. With Coyle coming back, I'd love to see how Ayling would get on in midfield.

Since Ayling has been injured, I think we have won 4 games. He has been our engine. We cannot efford to sell him.

We have. He got a lot of stick on here earlier in the season....but I've always liked him and stuck up for him. Hopefully he'll be back for us next season :)
