Fulham - The Team; Paul Konchesky
So, next in my series is our current 1st-choice left back, the one and only, Paul Konchesky.
There are mixed opinions on the former West Ham player, with some saying he is a liability, and others see him as quite a reliable left back, capable of doing what his expected of him, even with a momentary lapse of concentration now and then.
Joining in the summer of 2007, I think it s fair to say, the bald headed left back failed to make an immediate impact, but carried out his role with the minimum of fuss. And that seems his role in the team today, doing his job well, but hardly setting the world alight. But, surely, there is nothing wrong with that?
Well there is in this case. Konchesky is a good left back, don't get me wrong, but does anyone get the feeling his 'mistakes' are going to cost us a goal or to in the future. As far as left backs go, there aren't many 'amazing' ones, and for that reason, Mr. Konchesky is acceptable, but he could do with eradicating the little fumbles he makes now and then, which would make him a good standard player, and well worth keeping.
Gladly, it seems he is sewing up all the little holes in his game, and is proving quite a good left back. Well worth a stay at the Thames in my eyes.
