    When fully fit, Traore is a quality player in this league... however after having spent most of the last 5 years saying that about a lot of our players it's become rather tiresome to see half of our squad on the treatment table.

    If someone wants to take him off our hands, then it makes sense to get him off the wage bill and bring in a decent left back with a more dependable fitness record.

    The most appearances he's made in a season is 26.

    Given his quality I think that'd be just about ok (the expectation of him playing ~20 games) if it weren't for the fact he's a defender.

    Probably we have to punt on him anyway, but lay off waiting to happen.


    Who have we got in the youth team waiting to step up as left back?

    I think Adam Crookes can play there. Charlesworth plays RB so I think Preston must be the LB.

    Was purposefully targeted but stood up to the barrage.

    Which means two things. Warburton has got him competing more than ever and playing closer to his true potential more than ever.

    He is funny because sometimes he flies into 50/50s and then there are balls I feel are there for him to win and he seems to scared to win it.

    But yesterday was a big day for him and he passed it. Stayed injury-free too and is becoming one of us not just on the field but also his off the field work.

    I was thinking about this after the match too.

    Folk saying “we need to buy a quality Left Back!”, but I tell you this, a match-fit Armand Traore is a quality Left Back, one who, when on form, you’ll not find many better in this division.

    Crucially he fits into the attacking style Mark Warburton prefers too.

    He is but he's shown you can't rely on him.

    In a way true. That is why I think we will need a left-back or left-wing back to challenge him.

    He has been a funny player. But I genuinely think he is playing the best football of his career. Before Warburton he was as near as dog shit to us. Some turn around. Got to give the player and Warbs/Weir massive credit.

    Difficult to explain how things can turn around like it has.

    Did well yesterday, but I wouldn't want to rely on him for a season. He's bound to get injured at some point and I don't have the confidence he'll stand up to being targeted like he was against every single team. He's still the weak link in our starting eleven imo.

    We still need another one who can play left back, even if it's just additional options.

    As has been said, Traore is clearly a quality player but I don't think we can rely on him as our sole option at left back. Another left back to cover him and provide competition is definitely still needed IMO.

    Traore is generally tremendous. He tends to be a drama queen at times; writhing for a time after he has made a challenge, making us nervous that he has been crocked.
    Also generally, he recovers within seconds.
    He adds to our ability up front, capable of the neat one twos which have been a feature of the new regime. I wouldn't swap a potential 30 games of Traore with 46 games from a lesser player.
    Just saying.

    Lichaj is a decent enough back up but Tendi has to be better if the situation arises, man just idk annoys the fuck out me when he plays.

    Seems to be improving with games under his belt, his physicality is certainly useful in our squad.

    I rate traore massively but the lad can’t time a jump to save his life. Always gets battered in aerial duels

    Don't agree with that, he is very strong physically and in the air.

    Just saying what I’ve personally seen at home games. He’s strong on the ground but he mistimes his jumps so often.

    Luckily he’s got a hell of a touch so can bring a ball down other players couldn’t

    Aerially decent which is why he’s looked comfortable in a back 3

    My biggest gripe is that he pussies out of challenges too often when the ball is there to be won.

    One of the few downsides with a biscuit like Traore.

    Think the positives far outweigh the negatives though. A full season with a player like him is worth sacrificing a few 50/50s.
