Marc Wilson: Versatility delights Tony Pulis

The Irish defender has been playing centre-half in recent weeks covering for the suspended Robert Huth.

At Everton this weekend, Wilson is set to return to full-back and Pulis is delighted to have him on hand to switch roles.

"Marc played very well at centre-half, a position we hadn't played him in before," he said.

"He's a good player with tremendous ability. He's very, very versatile, and if you could have three or four of them in your group you'd be as pleased as punch.

"It's very difficult to find players comfortable in many positions like him."

Wilson returned fit from international duty in midweek and Pulis admits he was holding his breath.

"I must admit I was glued to the television, worrying that everybody would get back fit," he said.

"On Tuesday I watched the Irish game, even though I was desperate to watch the Wales game, because we had three players in it.

"Thank goodness they all seem to have come back fit, but we'll still have to take a close look at them before deciding on the team for Everton.

"If you had said six years ago we'd be losing six or seven players to international football you'd have locked me up and thrown me away."

still can't see the Phil Jones thing that some people go on about. Whenever I watch him play it's a repeat of headless chicken meets a gurning Bambi on ice for 90 minutes.

F365's Top Ten Defenders Of The Season

P

robably the first list I've come across in a long time where I agree with a large majority of what was written. Can't agree with everything though, Zaba has had an awful season by his standards, I'd put Monreal (a player who I've never rated) up there, gotta give credit where it's due, he's really stepped up his game.
