    Yes Chadli was on the left.... I still remember his regular lack of effort in tracking the opposition's right back, leaving Danny Rose with 2 on 1s pretty much every time the opposition attacked.

    Benoît Badiashile from Monaco would be the player I would most like to see brought in to partner Romero. That would be a perfectly balanced partnership IMO.

    I'm hoping that our DoF will get him to sign a pre-contract with us in January (we can then negotiate a pittance transfer fee for him with Milan).

    Would be a young partnership at first, but could be the foundation for the next 7-8 years.

    Bit early for stat analysis like this, and last year's Toby wasn't the greatest of bars to compare against.
    Still, when Romero is part of a settled defensive unit he's going to get more love.

    I just read that he played in the same team as Sandro at Genoa for a while.

    I hope that we bring this deal forward and complete the permanent deal in January.

    I still think Pau Torres could be the answer in the new Vertonghen quest. He'd also fit in with the Spanish speaking thing our defence has got going on

    Call me a Luddite, and I know nothing about Pau Torres, but I'd very much like a solid 6'3"+ hunk of burning love as our new CB. Much as Romero seems to punch above his weight, we're lacking height and physical presence once you take Dier out of the equation. We need a CB who could dominate at corners and at least attempt to deal with the likes of Antonio and Lukaku.

    Lopez is very very good but not known for his physical side. Same as Kounde
    Maybe the plan is a little and larger combo

    Play Dier in those two games, and have a quicker more cultured option for the others?

    I think a CB that enables us to play a higher line again will suddenly fix a lot of our midfield and forward issues too

    I don’t think that’s the issue at all
    We have a world class player not playing anywhere near to his level in Kane, and as an attacking unit we focus so much in him that the bar drops when he drops his levels
    Add in Lucas who is a head down kinda player
    Son whose brilliant in space but struggles against low blocks
    Bergwein who hasn’t got going here
    Gil who is a kid
    Lo Celso who we play CM or RW, not his natural postion
    Tanguy where trying to squeeze into a number 10 but he is an 8 at best
    We have huge problems with that mix of players

    He's a Mercedes class defender, and well on his way into the Rolls Royce division. He's been brilliant in the last few games.

    We need a statement to buck this lot up.

    Romero as captain and kane dropped.

    Poor C! Must wonder what the fudge he’s walked in to!

    getting better, he does need to be sharper with our offside trap though, I've noticed it a few times now, not getting out in line with Dier

    Did he play Rashford on for the third?

    That’s a player who should retire
