    I agree
    He is really strong in the air and seems to time his challenges well most of the time

    I've had the the same thoughts re him covering for Romero. He's seems quite suited to the role of RCB. Good depth if that is a path we want to follow.

    Was some talk of it being a loan with option. Dunno if that would work for us.

    Think he got better as the season progressed and not nearly as bad as some said. Would have liked to have seen him continue next season, but unfortunately his attacking lacks which is required for the current set up.

    The lad is much better than some of the brick that's been posted on social media by some of our fans. But he's not a wing back and I think it'd take a lot to make him one. He's dreadful in wide positions when we're attacking.

    Good defender, good player who I'd love for it to work out for here but I can't see it if we want to take it up a level. Good luck to him if he goes. Could see him being excellent under Simeone.

    Can he not be a back up CB cover for Romero?

    I have a feeling we will regret letting him go when Conte leaves and a manager comes in who plays 4 at the back.

    I do hope he stays here, he is a much better player then what some have said about him. He seem willing to work hard at changing his game to suit our style and i am sure if he stays he will get plenty of games.

    I've been wondering that. Would allow us to ship out Rodon, without needing to bring in second CB. Royal's always been very solid defensively - it's only his attacking that gets criticised.

    The problem is when he gets into the box he doesn't seem to know what to do. Like reguillon i think a better player would have scored more from the positions they got themselves in. Perisic got 8 goals and 7 assists in the league last season compared to reguillons 2 and 3. Thats worth how many points in a season? I'd like to see the same done for the right.

    I get the point i do but imo he was improving that part of his game as the season progressed, as i said he seems willing to work on that part of his game, it can be done with the right attitude and a manager who is willing to help him do so. We shall see.

    At the end of the day it will be up to conte. If he decides he wants to keep him, i'm not going to argue.

    Reggie could have had atleast 10 goals last season with the opportunities he has had.

    Every player is going to miss some chances, but it is an area we can improve next season and get more points from. As are other areas. Including rwb. Not every signing will be amazing. But if we are serious about closing the gap we need to try and improve as many areas as possible. Doesn't mean the players being replaced are bad players, just that we want to improve.

    Some of that will be improving our players. Some adding depth. Or options in how we play.
