    Maybe...I'd certainly have a RB and DM above CB in the list as we dont have viable options there in my view, whereas we do have some options at CB

    Just fix the full backs and the CBS become better as their dealing with less attacks directly at them
    I’ve said it loads when you look at the goals we concede so many are individual mistakes and the majority of the goals we concede come from being attacked wide against our FBs who can defend. We rarely ever concede from an attack that’s central.
    On the subject of Jan though it’s the right time for him to move on IMO - his legs have gone and his fine here is done

    Some opinions mature like fine wine. Others like eggs.

    So it seems like Jan will be off after this season which means he won’t get a proper send off from the fans. This makes me sad, he’s been a great servant for us....

    Jan goes to Ajax, we arrange a friendly as a sort of testimonial. Lucas nets a superb late hat trick, then gets dropped for the next game. Simples.

    At least we have extended his contract, without that, tomorrow would've been the last game he was eligible for.

    When do all these current transfer periods end around Europe?

    There's been a few players that this happened to recently, perhaps a charity match is in order when fans are back in the stadium.

    I agree it will be sad to see him go, a really class player who has made the game look easy during his time here.

    Fair play Jan, didn’t have to do this and could have looked to protect himself from injury ahead of signing what will potentially be the last contract of his career. Hope we get to show him some appreciation via a friendly or after beating his new team at new WHL.
    This is why I don’t particularly want us to sign Fraser, I don’t like the mentality of dumping Bournemouth during what is an especially challenging time for them as a club.

    Hasn't Roma's sale fallen through with them looking on very shaky ground financially?

    I fully understand Fraser doing that. He hasn't been one of those big players earning fortunes out of football. I think his current contract at Bournemouth is under £30k a week.

    I respect Jan for extending with us but wouldn't complain about any player (including those at our club) not doing so.

    I've seen it spoken about a couple of places over the last few days but that all could come from the same dodgy source
