Has anyone ever seriously thought about playing Tavernier in a RF position with Polster in Defence?

This kinda sorts the issues that Tav isn't the best defender and Polster is an improvement in that department but removes the pressure from the RB position to constantly be able to get forward and deliver crosses and attacking presence.

Id say Tav is better than anyone we have in the RW/ RF position based on crosses, assists etc so would anyone rule this out as our strongest team moving forward;

McGregor - GK
Polster - RB
Goldson - CB
Katic - CB
Barisic - LB
Davis - CM
Jack - CM
Kamara - CM
Tavernier - RW
Kent - LW
Morelos - ST

Anyone any ideas as to why Gerrard hasn't ever considered this and is making Aribo a makeshift RW to fill gaps in the team?

Arfield man of match last night . Aribo snd Ojo played well . Davis well off the boil ., that’s one prob past four games.

Tav basically plays there just now in this system. Our 2 'wide' players play as number 10's.

I don’t know how many times I have to post this in here. Tav is our right back, end of. He won’t be moved to another position. If you actually look at the formation and tactics we play AND listen to what both Gerrard and now Michael Beale have stated about our tactics you’d understand why.
We do not play with wingers, therefore there is no right wing position to ‘push Tav’ into. We play with two inside forwards or as Michael Beale explained it, ‘two number tens’. Not a role that Tav would be suited to play at all.
Plus for all Polster was ok at right back he lacks pace and Tavs attacking abilities. It’s been so blatantly obvious how much we’ve missed Tav over the last few games breaking forward and supporting the attacks down the right. Yes Tav has had a few defensive issues however with the way we play the main role of our fullbacks is to push up and act as ’wingers’ when we break forward, at which point our defensive mids offer cover if the other team breaks forward. Unsurprisingly this is virtually the same way Liverpool set up (although their front 3 operate slightly differently) . Would you suggest that they should ‘move Alexander Arnold or Robertson further forward and play different / more defensive fullbacks? As actually neither of them are the strongest of defenders, their just in the fortunate position that they have immense center backs and players like Fabino in midfield covering them so they rarely lose goals even if they do get caught out defensively.

Correct c bear the rf needs the ability to come inside and make it a narrow 3 and leave the space for the rb to create the width, have to say tho these last 4 games have shown how important tav is us to us.

30 Jan 2020 12:58:49
Davis struggling right now, yes.

Don’t understand why folk don’t get this. Tav is effective going forward because he starts from the RB position. He has a run on their LB and their LB is also occupied with our RF. If Tav is pushed up to RF he has no starting run and is already marked, therefor making him ineffective.
I’m sure if it was a good idea the coaching team (who are all more experienced than anyone on here) would have done it by now.
How many other RB or LB have went on to be RF or LF. hardly any. If anything it’s the opposite. Wingers being moved back to be Wingbacks. Valencia, Young etc.
it’s not FIFA or football manager and it’ll never work like that.

In that case Blue89, maybe we should sell Barisic, move Kent back to LB as he’s not doing it enough upfront and buy ourselves a new LW and RF for Coldo 👍.

30 Jan 2020 13:52:36
I agree with you now Blue89 although I did think Tav should have played up front for a while before your post.

And your right if it had been a good idea it would have been tried by now.

Cheers mate spot on.

He won’t get moved for a RB to move up a position is difficult to adjust to, Patrice evra was a prime example can’t remember the club he went to after United.

30 Jan 2020 14:25:52
does anyone understand a suggestion is as good as a rest. liverpool did in a recent game.

30 Jan 2020 17:32:35
Badly need a RF 👍.

Evra went to Juventus as a LB for them, and had a good spell there.

31 Jan 2020 14:15:42
Evra was a LB👍.
