Overall, I have been quite impressed by Herita Ilunga. OK, he was rubbish against Spurs, but he wasn’t alone. He’s quite adept at getting forward, and I suspect if he had a winger in front of him we might relive the glory days of the McCartney/Etherington partnership. However, we do have another left back of our books, in the Uruguayan Walter Lopez.
So far, Lopez has only played one game for the first team, the league cup defeat at Watford. However, as the game went on he looked increasingly bright. This week he played in the reserves’ 4-3 win over Chelsea and by all accounts was man of the match, creating three of our goals.
Is it now time to give him a couple of runouts?
