The Mail report that French premier Legaue outfit Nantes have expressed an interest in Julien Faubert. Their manager Elie Baup said: ‘If I had to sign anyone in January, the priority would be Julien Faubert.’
Now that Jonathan Spector and Kieron Dyer are returning to fitness, we’re OK on the right. Talking of Spector, I have never understood the antipathy towards him which people have expressed in the comments on this blog. He’s certainly not a flamboyant player, but he is solid and rarely let us down. I’d far rather see him at right back than Lucas Neill or Julien Faubert. He can also cover at left back, in the centre of defence and, if necessary in midfield. Every team needs a player like him.
