I don’t. Considering the stick Cook and Guthrie got/get for being slow/out of shape/fat I’m surprised he escapes the same ire to be honest. And his full back days are way way past him. Still shivering about his display on either side of the pitch against Macclesfield.
But he will keep getting chances because he’s one of Clarkes Boys.
If he is a little on the slow side he makes up for that in his positioning, reading of the game and influence on other players. What he brings to the back line more than compensates for his lack of pace IMO.
We have looked a lot better since hes been on his game… Commands and reads the danger very well
Facey and Scarr will do well too learn a thing or two off him before he retires!
Seems a very nice genuine guy too, and when speaks on the club’s video’s he speak’s real sense…Id go as far as too say he might even be in a coaching position later in life if he has time with his other business’s he has!
Clarke should NEVER, NEVER EVER, play as a full back again.
He’s a good center back but is useless at full back.
I can guarantee that Adabayo is going to start after his last 2 games. No one could drop him.
Only reason id be more hesitant to play sadler is his pace and his unlikely to be here next season while clarke probably will be. Tbh i dont really rate any of the cbs really highly we’ve shipped to many stupid goals across the season and never looked truly solid at the back
