    That's "3 new first team CBs" added already.
    Zero goals against this season.
    What are the rules concerning "trapping the ball" in your hair and then running the length of the pitch with it ?
    Does a player's official height include the hair ?

    Are the Pozzos listening? Are we actually signing defenders.

    What next a decent striker or two???

    Especially odd since from what I can see he hasn't even made his debut in Switzerland yet.

    Well, at the start of the summer I was hoping for at least one experienced upgrade at CB and one other CB prospect that could compete for a first team spot. We appear to have just about done that, but in the most underwhelming fashion possible. At 17 he can't really be expected to make any appearances for us for a season or two at least.

    Yeah I think that’s likely an embellishment of the truth on the Portuguese media’s part. If Wilmot who was older and had played senior English football wasn’t deemed ready, I really doubt this guy will be.

    Involved in the first team as in Quina and Wilmot last season I'd imagine. So, not really expecting to see him play apart from the early rounds of cups and occasional spots on the bench.

    Still need a CB I'd argue

    Didn't get a minute of playing time with the Portugal U17 squad at the U17 Euros in Ireland just gone either.

    I expect him to Paiva route into the first team in a similar way to Success and Peneranda.

    ******* state of this guy. Ruined in 5 minutes by Deeney's antics. Get rid.

    Was he even in the squad? Didn't look like it to me.

    In that article, and also the one below, he was mentioned as being included in the 24 man squad.

    https://www.record.pt/futebol/selec...iva-estreia-se-nos-convocados-de-emilio-peixe

    However, he's not counted as being included in the eventual travelling squad here, only 20 players are listed:

    Perhaps he joined up for a preliminary training camp and then he and 3 other players got axed before the tournament for whatever reason. Maybe he was pulled out due to our interest?

    Evidently they looked him over and unlike our current CBs, he apparently doesn't have anvils for feet... so they're going to give him a go....

    A little harsh. Just because we were interested in him, it doesn't mean he absolutely must be a **** defender !

    Our strike rate with defenders would suggest that though...

    I thought Reynard looked a good player, penalties aside. I reckon she’d do a job in defence and be good for marketing.

    Sky reporting Leandro Paiva is at Watford on a trial basis at the moment rather than a permanent transfer.
