Is Raisbeck better suited as full back?

Raisbeck’s half-back play is extolled to the skies by a good many critics. On the other hand there are not a few folk fully competent to express an opinion who have anything but a high idea of his fitness for the post.

For instance, one of the leading men in the game thinks that Liverpool would be well advised in removing him from the intermediate to the back division, holding the view that Raisbeck’s style of play, particularly his powerful defence, is far better suited to the position than to the one he occupies.

Raisbeck and Dunlop, he fancies, would be well-nigh an ideal pair. His idea is that Raisbeck rambles, and by his heavy kicking runs his forwards about too much.
