    They were exceptionally good as a pair
    And I don’t think either agitated to leave
    Don’t forget when they were here we was one of the 2 best sides in the country. Where would they go??
    Individually Jan was as good as any LCB IMO
    Toby was very good but it was telling no one wanted him for £25m when he was available

    Yeah I think I know how good they were. Just strange that the big boys weren't calling. We were good but still didn't win anything though.

    I’ve seen some awful players and teams win things though
    Cup football can do that

    We need him back asap. For his leadership on the pitch as much as anything.

    Yes, very much so. And also to enable Romero to play on the right of the three and support the RWB, something Sanchez is not capable of because he is uncomfortable on the ball.

    Absolutely. Add one more deeper player that's at least somewhat comfortable playing under pressure. Will still be vulnerable to high pressing teams, but better.

    Dier is a good defender so would be good to have him back. But he is also vulnerable to the press, only marginally better than Sanchez in that respect. What we need imho is for press resistance in front of them and an out ball for the defenders.

    You need both. Playing through a high press starts at the back, including the goalkeeper. Defenders need option, but also just the quality on the ball to do that.

    I think Dier is more than marginally better than Sanchez in that respect. He's also well suited to the central role where he'll usually get a bit more space and time allowing Romero to play RCB, and he's probably our best centre back on the ball under pressure.

    I think it will make a bit of a difference. But we will still be short on quality when playing through pressure.

    Says a lot for how far we have fallen that Dier is being spoken of in terms of being a future captain.

    Been our best player this season when he has played and been solid for years.

    I think we missed Eric orchestrating the defence, and Skipp protecting it. Which one made the bigger difference?, I'd probably say we missed Skipp more, but probably a bit of both.
