I am now back from Tallinn, a very charming town I recommend you all check out if the chance arises. And that means we go back to the Clipboard to run down some right wingers...
Also in the frame: Ethan Finlay, Rubio Rubin, Paul Arriola, Jerome Kiesewetter
Much thought was given to slotting Bedoya elsewhere, but his intangible combination of work rate, defensive help and possession work is just too invaluable on the right side. If he could just produce more final product, that starting place would be more secure. With Wood fast developing a better hold-up game, Morris moves wide this time. His speed and fearlessness can come in handy here, especially as a mighty bench weapon (for now, anyway).
Zusi's experience and set piece delivery has him hanging on, but his spot in the top three would be under serious attack if younger guns Finlay and Rubin regain top form. Both have the tools to assert themselves in this position, giving the team a couple of different possible looks in the future. Arriola is a rather solid dark horse option here and Kiesewetter should begin improving more rapidly now that he'll do time in the 2.Bundesliga. If Josh Gatt ever gets back to his old self, this place on the depth chart will see some huge battles in the coming years.
