Right back could arguably be considered our most problematic position of recent years.

West Ham have seen plenty of right backs come and go with mixed success but none have really set the world alight.

Then last season we secured the season-long loan services of Arsenal’s Carl Jenkinson which proved to be a shrewd piece of business. Jenkinson provided a capable balance of defensive solidity and attacking threat.

However, the expiration of his loan coupled with releasing Guy Demel worryingly leaves Joey O’Brien as the only right back on our books.

Therefore, in my opinion, we need to add two right backs to our squad as O’Brien is nowhere near good enough to be considered for the first team…
