Anyone saying Woodburn is the answer to our midfield problems is just wishful thinking... good signing and talented lad but not the physical, engine room type midfielder we desperately need. Hope the club is still looking

January would make sense as they were hoping to get him playing at a higher level this season

I'm a bit concerned about this injury he suffered twice from last season, apparently he has an unusual gait which makes him prone to hurting the outside of his foot. Apparently was in the process of getting insoles to take the pressure off when the second injury occured.

So by my reckoning we have 9 of this sort of inside forward type along with 6 fullbacks

It's the centre of the pitch that needs addressing
Come on Phil, 9? I think you're spreading the net wide there.

We do have a few holding midfield players - Robson, Williams, Virtue and Antwi. Could be better, could be worse.

I doubt the Viking will play and Virtue is still injured and if Woodburn does sign

Let's also not forget, that one of our most successful players in modern times, David Vaughan, was signed and initially played as a left midfielder before moving in to the middle.

I have no issue with players moving position if their abilities allow it, but we are currently seeing players played out of position with little if any benefit to themselves or the team.
Sorry but he's nothing like David Vaughan

I do agree with your last paragraph though for me Grant Ward and Keshi Anderson aren't centre mids

I wasn't comparing him to David Vaughan. I didnt even mention any specific player.
I was saying players are capable of moving to play in different roles if their abilities allow.

The ones we currently have (Anderson & Ward as you say) seemingly can't.
