Kitman Posted April 30, 2007 Share Posted April 30, 2007 More Comical Alan propaganda on behalf of Stephen Carr. Strangely it seems that Baba is shite yet Carr is really good. No new right back for us next season then > Source: The Chronicle -------------------------------------------------- Glenn Roeder has thanked Stephen Carr for plugging the gaps in Newcastle United's problem left-back position. And that's where, despite Celestine Babayaro being fit again, Carr will perform when United make their first visit to the Madejski Stadium in the Premiership for Monday's televised game with Reading. United boss Roeder is well aware Carr is not a favourite among the United supporters, but he has no complaints at the way the 30-year-old has operated on his wrong side lately. Before supervising United's training session today ahead of their flight to London tomorrow tea-time, Roeder told me: "I thought Stephen Carr was excellent against Chelsea on Sunday. "He has filled in well at left-back and he gave James Milner some great support with the way he overlapped down the left. "Not only that, he was talking to James all the time, and he is feeling the benefit of all Carr's experience. "That's why it is important to us that Stephen Carr stays fit for our last three games." As it happens, both United's full-backs at the Madejski Stadium on Monday night, Carr and Nobby Solano, will effectively be playing out of position. And Babayaro may well be asking himself why Roeder would rather play someone out of position rather than place any confidence in him, now that the former Chelsea star and Nigerian international is finally fit again. And why signing a new left-back is a big priority for Roeder in the close season. Link to post Share on other sites More sharing options...
