    I know there are some who do not really rate Dier but i do think he will play a lot under Jose, what we need to do is find a partner for him. Toby has been a great player for us but its plain to see IMO that he his struggling for not only pace but he is also get caught of position far more often. Sanchez is still not very consistent( good games, poor games).

    Not to worried about not getting one in this time, i still think Tanganga could be a very good player going forward and Davies has played CB for Wales a lot and always done well there.

    If we could get a decent CB in the next window we could really do things this year

    I know what you're saying but at least we've got 2 virtually untried options to have a look at (Tang, Rodon)

    Backed off and backed off one of their players till he was nearly in our pelanty area. Very worrying.

    He has been for a while imo, his head tells him what he should be doing but the legs do not have it anymore.

    As I say, I didn’t watch it
    I’m hoping that Rodon can step up with us as he clearly has potential
    Tanganga needs to get fit ASAP as he defends on the didn’t foot
    And Dier hasn’t looked anywhere near as poor as people will portray
    Sanchez ... well he is just average
    And Toby can still play games

    Dier is fine - the problem is after that. You have one old guy who is on the decline, two young (largely unproven) CBs and one who increasingly doesnt look like he'll ever be good enough.

    In addition to make Bale and Vinicius permanent, CB is the priority next summer

    If Jose is truly the coach his rep saus he is, we'll have enough CBs to get us top 4.
    Perhaps a truly world class CB might give us a title push, but tbh at this point there's enough for him to with.

    Imo, another more defensive midfielder would be much more pressing because without Hojbjerg we are more unsteady in all ways and the defence suffers the most..

    I agree
    If we buy in January another CM is key
    We have a potential problem there

    Agree
    PEH is really looking like a massive miss if he can't play.

    I think another CM that can negate the impact of PEH not being there is now more important than a CH as we have 2 CH with potential, I'm not saying they'll step up, but they have to be given a chance and that chance is better for them with good protection in front. If one comes good it might save us 30/40m in Jan/summer.

    Ideally we'd like to see PEH Ndombele Lo Celso BUT with form and fitness of the latter two being far from secure, someone who can compliment PEH and play with one of them would be a godsend. And I'm talking an upgrade on Winks or Sissoko. Perhaps an older head if Skipp comes back next season?

    I think we need to get cover for and replace sissoko as I can see skipp being the cover for PEH

    Do we need to replace Sissoko? Without him next season we'd have:

    - PEH, with Skipp being his deputy
    - GLC, with Winks being his deputy
    - Ndombele, with Dele being his deputy

    I'm not sure we need a 7th player given we're play 4-3-3 at the moment, though I'd probably replace Dele with someone who plays more as a CM rather than a no 10. If you replace Dele in the above list with someone like another PEH then I think we're fine

    I think is glc or Tanguy myself
    Peh or winks
    Sissoko or nice one of the others
    And next year Skipp will take winks place
    I don’t see dele ever working in a 3
    I’m not saying get rid of sissoko, just planning for his age abs contract
