Before he f***ed up his career in Swansea, he was a solid performer under Rafa. 6m is a very reasonable price as well. Much better deal than the Marlon one.

Great signing.

Rafa sold him after one season.

Great signing ffs. :lol:

:lol: I was thinking that in the chron article. Was sure he only played under rafa for a season
:lol: I dunno. I'm starting to think it was us.

guarantee in three years' time we won't be able to sign a centre-half because this guy will still be on the wage bill, having played half a season for the first team.

Problem is Rafa isn't here next season, that's the short termism of this sort of thing. He's probably a serviceable CB, but then when Rafa goes and Lascelles goes with him, we are stuck with him and no doubt he will become a regular.

Yeah and we will likely have Sooty and Sweep as Manager and assistant, so is there really much point in worrying/caring?

The object should be try to appease Rafa, till we can get shot of Ashley or at least pressure him into providing more financial backing. There should be a big campaign in the run up to the January transfer window really, as it will be the fans last chance to affect Rafa's viewpoint in terms of whether he can achieve his ambitions at this club. He likely wont think so currently and if Ashley doesn't budge what would there be to follow anymore?

Yeah I know, but that's the point I'm making. I'm saying because people are saying "under rafa" and I'm saying he won't be under rafa for more than a season. I agree with what you're saying, was just pointing out that the problem is we then have these players under the next joker they get in.

Considering he's an experienced international and knows the league (probably the language too), it's a far better deal than Marlon that's for sure.

Still paper thin in midfield, no left back, no backup right back, no real number 10. Shambles.

sterry is our back up right back

Still Manquillo imo, who'll also be first choice back up to Dummett at LB. Sterry will play RB if both our full backs are injured or unavailable, as Manquillo plays at LB in that case.

Shows just how appalling we are run, utterly woeful and pathetic.

If both Dummett and Yedlin were out, I actually see Rafa putting Kenedy at LB and Manquillo at RB. But your last point still stands 100%

You watched a lot of Napoli like?

So solid and great that once Koulibaly came in, Rafa sold him over the other CBs he had.

There is no problem with who we have under the next joker though, as we'd have the "next joker" undermining things anyway.

Koulibaly is the best CB for Napoli, a team come closest to challenge Juventus in these few years. Fernandez is just an average player.  What's surprising?

Or you failed to understand that it's already "great" for us to sign an average player under current circumstances?

Once Lejeune gets back, I doubt we will keep 5 CBs on the books anyway. If he* gets sold end of the season for a profit, happy days yeah. If he gets sold as a loss, the difference's effectively a loan fee for one season.

* Could apply to any of the CBs. Just hope it's not Lascelles.

Unless it was a thinly-veiled dig at him for being crap, in which case I agree.

Would be happy to see the back of Clark to be honest, (although only when we have enough cover) which would kind of make sense given he and Fernandez would be the oldest of the bunch.

Why should we be happy with signing an average player and proclaim how great it is? Give your head a shake.

Medicals take time. The last details of the price can be ironed out whilst it's taking place.

Weird signing. Already have Clarke, Lascelles, Schär, Lejeune (despite being injured) and Dummett that could possibly do a job as 4th choice CB. Really needed to improve other areas for this season. Paperthin across the midfield.

It's not like. Lejeune's injured until the very late stages of the season and Dummett can't play centre half when he's the only senior left back on the books. You can't go into a Premier League season with only 3 available centre halves. You can't go with only 1 left back either like but here we are.

Agreed. We already have cover. Seems overkill to get cover for the cover when we lack cover elsewhere unless it had been on loan like with the Brazilian guy.
