    Feel sorry for him as he looked a very good player so far.

    Wait, what?

    New to the club and league, young, in a disjointed team playing two different styles under two different managers. He's looked like our best centre back fairly consistently and quickly after a grand total of 6 PL starts.

    If we didn't already have Romero we should try to sign him. Looks our best CB signing since Alderweireld.

    Yes, probably an overreaction on my part! Just tinkled off he’s barely played for us and his 2 excursions with Argentina have both had very negative impacts.
    I think it’s too early to judge him as a player though he looks a bit reckless to me so far.
    I doubt if he’ll be the “gamechanger” like Van Dijk that some people were hoping for.
    I hope to be proved wrong.

    I understand where you're coming from on the overreaction - but not signing him would just be cutting off our own nose...I mean I'd love to get some sort of revenge on the Argentinian national team but looking at it rationally there's nothing we can do - its just part & parcel of the game.
    Since you mention van Dijk - at least Romero wasn't done by Ramsdale and out for 12 months.

    This has to highlight we can't rely on 1 or 2 top players - we need strength in depth and we need to strengthen the centre back area so that his loss isn't felt as much.
    Personally I think he's looked very impressive so far. Yes there is a rashness/over eagerness to win the ball but you have to play the odds if you want to be playing on the front foot. Otherwise we'll just sit camped in our own box waiting for the inevitable. No-one wants that.

    Argentina situation and injury tells us nothing about how he will do in the future.

    Van Dijk cost close to twice what Romero cost, was PL proven and quite a bit older and more experienced than Romero when he signed for Liverpool. Has been widely described as the best CB in the world.

    Romero could fail to be a game changer like van Dijk and still be a massive success.

    Romero is a bit reckless. We signed a young, somewhat reckless player. You can be a young and reckless centre back, be great, and become even better.

    It is early, I agree.

    I agree Van Dyck had a couple of seasons with Celtic to build his confidence and pick up experience of British game followed by time with the Saints. I do remember Kane making him look a mug in a couple of games before he moved.

    So, five and a half years on here, 290 posts. That's less than 60 posts a year. Maybe five a mumph. Once a week basically.

    You need to be proved right a whole lot more and a whole lot more often before hoping to be proved wrong.

    I've worked hard to stay this way, hopefully Hobjerg can work hard to start playing decently again.
