I've never understood why people who are paid thousands of pounds a week to play football every single day can't use both feet. 

Really annoys me when they balloon the ball miles over the bar and the commentator says "it was on his weaker foot" as if that's okay.

Why? We have one recognised left back in MacKenzie, who is in and out of the side (I don't recognise Hayes as one, honestly think he's a fucking liability there)

Considine has filled in there in the past, not too disastrously. A left sided CH would give us that option. And also the option to play as a back 3 when required. And as I already mentioned....Considine cannot be expecting a further extension beyond this season. If we signed Kerr we'd have 3/4 right sided centre backs in Gallagher, McCrorie, Devlin and then Kerr (or any other right sided CH that might be signed). To me that is an unbalanced squad.

Kerr is also slightly undersized as a CH in modern day terms (although he is very mobile as an upside).

We should get the best centre halves we can as long as they can play in a pair.  Regardless of preferred foot. 

Centre backs shouldn't be confused with left backs.  Totally different skill set required.

Correct! The fact we pricked about without a proper left back for years under McInnes is mental.

We had a proper LB, but he was in midfield

We also had Mckenzie who is now 22 in the youth all those years. Dont think he would be at club had Mcinnes still been at club and he could well be our first choice LB. Are we to believe he wasn't good enough up until now?

To be fair, he was a very good player to have in midfield. His influence would have been wasted at LB.

Why we wasting our time contemplating which defenders we are signing. We are an attacking team now….we don’t need any more defensive players in our squad. Let’s try and change the fan’s mindset. Attack attack attack!

Aye. 

That kind confused thinking between centre and left backs ends up with the likes of Greg Leigh being signed. Someone who is useless in a number of positions rather than being useful in a position you actually need someone for.

Completely agree. Amazes me that kids aren't (properly) taught to play with both feet as a matter of course. Crazy that players get to pro level and still have a 'weaker foot'!

What’s worse is when we sign a player and both feet are bad.

😂 yup, sometimes hard to work out which foot is the “weaker” foot with some of the dross we’ve signed in the past.

I wonder what the announcement that Dave Cormack has just teased on Twitter will be about? Says him an Simmy will do it live at 10.15 tomorrow morning. Stadium development maybe? Can't see it being a player as it'd certainly be a 1st 😂

new role for Simmie maybe?  Was rumours of him moving in to another role overseeing link between development squads and the first team, not sure if it was ever confirmed?
