I'll say what I said in the Silvas playbook thread. He'll be missed when he goes and we need to replace not just another defender but a captain, and his organisational skills in that defence. Brilliant performance yesterday and it shouldn't be one of the older players we have to rely on to get a good result. Everyone played a part I'm not denying that. But Jags organises that defence and you know if he's in there then we'll be pretty watertight.
Mina, Keane and Zouma, on the proviso that we sign him, need to start looking at what Jags does and replicate that. If they can do that then we'll have 3 really good even 3 world class cbs at the club.
With that we need a captain thatís similar to Jags too. One that wonít take any shit and leads by example. Of the players here, I really canít think of who that could be. Possibly Keane if he can start to lead that defence like Jags can. Maybe Gomes if he signs permanently.
