Reckon that means Moore wants another defender in addition to Holgate, which is what the Daily Mail were reporting yesterday. Mears stays as emergency cover through January whilst we try to land the other target.

Very much an emergency option on the bench.   If his wages are as low as reported (low for a footballer, not a real person 😑 of course) then no biggy.

No brainer (the extension, not Tyrone)  before some bright spark .....

My initial reaction was 'WTF!!!' until I thought about it for a moment - it does probably mean they're going to try for another right back, or see how Holgate fares in the role.

I can still see him being here until the end of the season though.

No major clangers today but yes he's very poor.

I thought he had a solid game today to be honest. Probably because he was playing in his proper position.

He defended well today to his credit

My only problem is that he does not possess the forward ability that Townsend and Gibbs offer - it was noticeable that when our midfield was narrow and Harper was looking for the option wide, Mears was often hanging back on half way

That might be to save us being caught on the counter but if you’re overloading the middle and playing narrow then you ideally need some width from somewhere

He doesn't have the legs to do that mate. To be fair to him he's a good, honest pro who came in as sort of an emergency because we didn't have a right back. We are wrong to expect too much of him.

Thats what I mean really, not saying he should be starting or anything but I think he can actually do a job if needed to.

If we don't get any more defenders in, and especially if Toisin goes, I think he will be perfectly OK bench/backup.

Have to give bloke credit for his performance yesterday, seemed solid in a back four.

I don't disagree - it highlights the failings of our recruitment and management team not to address this issue in the summer, rather than relying on a mate of Moore's to carry us through.

To have started the season with no recognised right back was insane.

Your criticism would be wholly justified if the club had made no effort to find a long term RB.
But, unless you can prove that the club sat on their hands, and did not try to recruit, I think you should moderate your language.

Thank you - but I will not be moderating my language.

I never accused the club of sitting on their hands - I accused them of failing to address the issue - which is correct

And to start the season with no recognised right back was insane.

You leave the moderating advice to me..

Meanwhile back on topic, I have to think that Mears has been a “success “ in as much that we had no alternative and he (and Tosin) have plugged the hole for 6 months without the club having to find a transfer fee or a long term contract

If you wish to insult the club (that you purport to support) with inane slurs such as 'insane', carry on. Rather diminishes the thrust of your argument imo.
And, I repeat, just how do you know what efforts were made to recruit, and where the failures lie??

Can we cut the "purport to support" type comments please, similar to those earlier about "true" fans or "happy clapper", "doom monger" etc, this is not the forum for comments such as those, keep them to Facebook and other social media outlets

in fairness he didn't say the club was insane, he said it was insane to start the season without a RB. which it was.

Overreaction/10.

I see no issue whatsoever in what Liam wrote, it was utterly absurd to let Nyom go and fail to replace him, instead bringing in one of Darren's pals who is clearly no longer up to it.

To be pedantic we did start the season with a recognised RB, Nyom played the first 3 games as a right back in a back 4.
We brought in Mears who is a RB and played him as a RWB  (which he couldn't do). On Saturday Mears played as a RB and looked okay.

that's a contradiction.

As pointed out he didn't call the club insane, he said it was insane, big difference and I also don't see that as abusing or insulting the club.

People are allowed to criticise the club, we pay our money and so are allowed to comment on it both good, bad, positive or negative, that will not change on this forum as long as it is within the forum rules.

Not really, bringing in someone who is no longer a footballer is hardly a replacement, as bad as Nyom was/is.
