    And now with their careers finished and your new prem contract almost in the bag, roles could be reversed.

    I'd happily have another Prodl or Britos in their prime. Don't pretend you have any idea how good this guy is other than the fact that he's on Barcelona's books. He may be the dogs ****** but you can't be sure after 12 senior games.

    In their prime? we never had either of them in their prime and they were ok for a team trying to stay in the league. If we realistically have any ambition of achieving top 10 or pushing for Europe then we need better than ok. Our current experienced centre backs are just about good enough to stay up in the championship. I'm not against signing an experienced centre back but I do think that this is where we should be looking to make our marquee signing this year. For me signing Todibo would be a win win, he's only going to get better and would likely be available for a relatively low fee, fits the Pozzo model perfectly. BUT he will need a solid experienced centre half next to him, something we do not currently have.

    Why do you think he will be available for a low fee from Barcelona ?
    Prodl and Britos were both in their prime when they joined. Now they're/there/their not.
    I'm more interested in signing this "solid experienced centre-half next to him" that you speak of.
    Do you really think we will be splashing out to push for Europe ? You saw our last accounts, yes ?

    Sadly based on what the PL team have told me what the salary will be (when the job is advertised in the next week or so) the girls will need to be buying me drinks!

    Because they buy a lot of young players and not every one makes the grade to play for their first team. Still can be easily good enough for us, also Barca have a track record of letting young players go for low fees with buy back clauses so that they have a proper chance to develop rather than rot in the reserves. I don't think we need to splash out for Europe, in my opinion with a better defence last season we would have taken 7th. Midfield and attack is fine, lets spend what we do have on a couple of centre backs.

    I agree. Prodl and Britos were great in the first season. Cathcart was younger as well. It’s complacent neglect that we have allowed our central defence to fall into disrepair. Going back to the equivilant of our 2013/2014 unit would be a step forward.

    Life expectancy was lower then. Nobby Stiles at 21 was already middle aged.

    Shows that the players weren't bragging about being footballers in order to pull. Good for them

    I think Abdi is or was married to an absolute stunner then and couldn't have looked less interested in the girls (who weren't really attractive anyway), think he was just wingmanning Ekstrand.

    De Ligt seems to be stalling on making his decision on a transfer, with PSG now strongly rumoured, so this could well be a consequence of that with Barca now less sure of landing him.

    Ah well nice while it lasted. Mapps to get a 4 year deal like Cathcart anyone?

    I have to say Leventhal is just saying the exact same thing the Spanish newspaper said originally. It was always said the player would be going back for pre-season before a decision was made.

    He’s already got a deal that runs another 2 seasons but a 2 year extension till he’s 35 wouldn’t surprise me.
