Figured the GK run is starting, so should get one now. Wanted Courtois if I'm honest.

Roberto was on my radar for RWB, but thought the Barca fans were lukewarm on him.

Valencia would be perfect for RWB. He has been fantastic this season. He was wasted at RW for years at Man U. He has the stamina, athleticism, speed and strength to cover the whole right wing. He defends well too. Sergi Roberto would have been really poor in this position.

Valencia is ok but he can only run. Not good under pressure, not good in closed spaces and doesnt understand a shit.

There is a real shortage of great RBs at the moment. Roberto is definitely in the top tier, in the right system, and is versatile, as you point out. He was not someone I was planning on, but when I started to think about RBs, there were not too many I would prefer to him.

Yeah, but after reading the latest Pep book, that might be a good thing. He likes fullbacks who are midfielders, not the classic run all day beasts.
