    And diers mobility
    It’s important that players can run and jump
    Toby will get plenty of games but his legs have gone completely
    It even showed vs England
    I’d say soon that we will have Dier and Rodon left and Sanchez as Tanganga right

    I reckon we'll still be in for a more first team ready CB next summer, possibly/probably Skriniar

    Possibly, though I cant see Tanganga, Rondon or Dier leaving next summer. Who knows about Sanchez. Maybe we'll get in a big name CB allowing Toby to leave, but I could equally see Toby seeing out his deal by playing a bit part role, and then leaving for Ajax

    Will be interesting to see where we spend cash next summer. Vinicius or another CF is an obvious position, and a successor for Lloris is becoming more and more urgent just because of his age and Hart not obviously being someone we'd want starting many PL game

    A rather impressive interview; in the space of 2 minutes I counted 8 times he said "you know" and 8 times he said "like I say". Fair play to the lad, that is some going and shows a real dedication to the footballer's craft

    Maybe
    I expect a permanent forward (possibly Carlos or even the Polish lad on a free)
    Random one.. I think we will got Millenkovic Savic for one of the midfield berths
    And maybe an additional CB depending on how Sanchez does this season

    I wouldn't say a successor for Lloris is that urgent. This calendar year is probably the best he's played in a long time.
    A successor will be needed in the next couple of years, but I would say a top-quality experienced CB is still the priority for the next transfer window or two.

    I agree. I could see us shifting Alderweireld and Sanchez next summer. A new first choice CB in and Dier drops down to a reserve.

    Makes you wonder if we had a bit more money if we would have binned him off the same time as verts.

    Not proving he is worth that big new contract so far. Hopefully as the season goes on.

    Dier's only mobile in a straight line now.

    He has had a few games where he has shown his ability but in truth he has not been the player he was for at least the last year or so.

    That's a different point entirely, we were talking about Dier. He's not going to be a first choice player for us, beyond this season, unless his form improves.

    Maybe, maybe not. We will see I guess
    I was definitely talking about Toby though when you originally responded to my comment
    I’ve heard people say he has to start now because of the mistakes diers made forgetting the only game we have lost, he played and had a mare (like most did)
    What I’ll also say with Toby was post lockdown I thought he was great. That’s the Toby we need to see back but this season he has looked like he has lead in his boots

    He could be, but i think Dier happily playing LCB means hes used more often.

    And Dier and Alderweireld together lacks pace. Rodon can play LCB, Skriniar too, so this is obviously something that we've been looking to address.

    Bale ain't cheap, and factor in wages for all da playas. And the lack of revenue from the stadium and the debts from the stadium and Levy going two transfer windows without spending a penny. Levy shelled out an un-Levy-like amount.

    I (we) were talking pecking orders?

    So if you're moving it along...the LCB search is partly with the intention of shifting Dier over to RCB, giving him every chance to come good.

    FWIW I've heard Skriniar ain't got much pace about him.
