He’d have probably been first choice centre-back here any other time during the Premier League era. Unlucky we’ve got a good set of them now. Imagine him with Albert, Woodgate or a peak Coloccini?

Curious what our best center center back trio is right now.

Clark, Fede and 1 of Schar/Lejeune?

Lejeune and Schar have both got to be playing for me. Bring far too much to the team to be left out.

Arguably our second choice central defence out there in the second half.

Certainly helps that we dont need to rush back our two best, Schar and Lejeune.

Sir Bobby Robson: “What is a club in any case? Not the buildings or the directors or the people who are paid to represent it. It’s not the television contracts, get-out clauses, marketing departments or executive boxes. It’s the noise, the passion, the feeling of belonging, the pride in your city. It’s a small boy clambering up stadium steps for the very first time, gripping his father’s hand, gawping at that hallowed stretch of turf beneath him and, without being able to do a thing about it, falling in love.”

Didn't Bruce complain about having too many defenders in the squad...

The amount of headers he wins in our box is massive.

he mentioned it again this week and they we he was talking, I get a feeling he's looking into cashing in on one of them

He’s like a budget Dickie Carvalho, just loves defending.

Is Fede central with Schar and Lejeune not our best trio?

Don’t know that those three have ever played together, but I’d like to see it :thup:

Would like to see this tried out too. Schar and Lejeune distributing the ball from the back  :drool: . Having said that, Clark and Fede have been outstanding in their respective positions, but the ability on the ball from S&L would add another dimension.

I still think Fede does the exact job of Lascelles pretty much the same and has the added bit of being better on the ball on both ends of the pitch.
