    I think that was true some years ago, in the EPL now 28 is the high norm. David Luiz is 32 this month and he is the top of the oldies bracket. Kompany at 33 will coach soon ie retire IMO.
    Jan is 32 this year but still the best :) IMO. Otamendi doesn't play regularly at 31 now.

    Toby 30 is older than Smalling and Jones which surprised me.

    A United fan at work was trying to convince me last week that Smalling was better, so they didn't need him

    With any club he goes to only having to stump up £25m....it will help his wage negotiation. I wonder if we could match that amount. circa 200k a week?

    If he goes to United, imo i wouldn't mind taking a chance on eric bailly, i think there is a player in there (lost in the circus of Man Yoo) . He was at Espanyol for a while so i wonder if Poch already has some knowledge on him.?

    I still don't think £25m is that cheap for someone his age, with his recent injury record and with his La Liga black mark. It's a reasonable price, but not a break the bank on wages ones

    La liga was a blip rather than black mark. Any employer would look at his performances for the last 5/6 years in the much more competitive PL and CL and completely ignore 1 average season 6/7 years ago.

    And also he hardly had injury worries. He was out for a relatively short period and was then frozen out by Poch

    I wondered that a month ago... then bailly got a game
    He was all at sea and hauled off after half an hour to save him/the team from any more
    Really bad

    Why would you call La Liga a black mark? At the time Athletico Madrid had the best defence in the Spain so there was no shame in being unable to oust 2 of the best defenders in the league
