    Definitely much too early to judge on Tanganga. But he's shown good promise so far.

    Sanches seems to behind Rodon in the pecking order right now at least. If that's a lasting state of affairs I can't see him being satisfied with his role at the club.

    Football is littered with centre backs that looked very promising, but ended up average or worse. Time will tell with both Sanches and Tanganga. Right now my hopes are higher for Tanganga than for Sanches, but that may look ridiculous at some point.

    We got beat 2-0 at the Scum a few years back and Sanchez was the best player on the park. It was a Ledley-esque performance. Best game I’ve seen him play for us.

    But, I think in the same season he gave a Kevin Scott-esque performance at Anfield in the 2-2 game. One of the worst centre back performances I’ve ever seen and Poch hooked him if memory serves.

    That’s the issue with him for me. He’s either brilliant or awful and is too frequently awful. He even does it within games. The 2-1 defeat at Watford a couple of seasons back, he bossed Deeney for 70 minutes. Played a very intelligent game and didn’t give him a kick. Then he decided to go shoulder to shoulder with him, got put on his arse, we conceded the equaliser straight away, got beat 2-1 and he was dreadful for the last 20 minutes.

    He seems to have the tools but the gap between his best and his worst is too big. He’s also had enough time to improve and, if anything, he’s gotten worse. He needs to go.

    For sure it's something to be wary of, I was one of a fair few that saw a real player in CCV..

    Appreciate the big game CB point, but the pitch is the pitch and Liverpool against mane is as much as a trial by fire, especially considering that we've been a bit brick against them.

    Get him out in Jan, we are going to take a massive hit on the fee paid, but he is useless.

    Chop him up and kiln dry him, we can use him to warm the Lodge

    Hopefully Levy can manage to recoup most of that £42m we spent on Sanchez, as looked decent prospect when he first signed but has regressed horribly since then.

    Wish that Rodon was named in Europa squad instead.

    We can do the squad again right, after the group stage? No way we will get 42m for him, lucky to get half that.

    My only defense is he's just 24. He joined us as a 21 year old, one of the brightest defensive prospects on the planet. He was fully deserving of a first team spot from the off.

    I have to believe he can get back to that, he's still young enough.

    Only hope is that a Spanish club thinks he is suited to that league.

    Be lucky to get £20 million

    we can change the EL squad in Jan

    He was average first season and been awful ever since. Would have rather we started putting binks in the team last season or Walcott this season, they actually could do no worse.

    Fingers crossed Tanganga develops so Sanchez isnt much needed from now til end of the season. He's a liability - if he was a good defender but crap on the ball then fine, but he's cant even defend well

    As someone said above, if we can find a team in la liga to take him off our hands in Jan then great, otherwise will just have to wait til the summer

    can’t see there being many buyers
    He is such a dumb player right now
    Plays with so little awareness
    Could be rustiness but you just expect more

    He was excellent in his first season but he also benefitted from Poch benching Toby because of his contract situation. I don’t think he would have been a regular had Toby just signed a contract straight away. People just got carried away in his first season and acted like jilted lovers and pretended Sanchez was better because Toby wouldn’t sign a new deal.

    He played in a 3 with Jan and Toby either side of him, that’s why he looked really good in his first season.

    That helped but he also looked ok when Toby got benched and left out altogether some games due to his contract dispute. It was Sanchez and Jan which worked fine. He was definitely more composed in those days. Now it’s like he’s regressed in every aspect of the game.

    I must admit i have tried to defend Sanchez on here but he still does not seem to be developing as he should, still fairly young though but with the emergence of Tanganga ( who was MOM for me last night) and the signing of Rodon i do not see him getting enough games here anyway.

    I sadly agree. I want him to come through and learn, but he really does seem to be fragile.
