Sounds like Ratcliffe in the running for most successful club psychic as well.

The only thing they have in common is that they're both French, that's about it.
Well if you look past the obvious and then that they are both defenders .I see your point.

Yeah, he was brilliant for us.

If we’re doing a list of centre halves

1. Jags
2. Yobo
3. Distin
4. Weir
5. Lescott.


Yobo no but Stubbsy yes  seeing as you only seem to be quoting the prem years

Dead right

Top 5 centre backs:

1)Brian Labone
2)Kevin Ratcliffe
3)Tommy E Jones
4)Mick Lyons
5=)Dave Watson/Phil Jagielka

Special mention: Jimmy Gabriel; John Hurst; Mark Higgins
Well if you think Gabby was a centre back then I agree  .

Wait I re read it ,Mick Lyons ????? Do me a favour . Was'nt fit to lace the others boots ((as a Centre Half ) not as a blue).

Everyone as old as me is as old as me . I wasn't having a dig just that it seemed from your choices it must be the prem years .Because there have been much better ,with the caveat that none of them would live in todays game -if they looked after themselves as they did .

Lyons is in my top 5 because I idolised him and as with the others, a long term captain of the club

Gabriel gets a special mention because Mick idolised him!

Plus, Gabriel was a very good centre back for Southampton

Loved Mick Lyons except pre season when he'd predict it was our year. Ken McNought was decent and could clear the half way line with a clearance header

Distin was boss. Zouma isn't at that level yet but he has the ability he's more like Yobo for me (also boss)

If we had Yobo now he would be crucified on here .If anyone had a mistake in him it was Joseph Yobo .Memories dim for some . Shame Mark Higgins didn't get a bit longer .

If yobo was playing in today’s game he’ll be a much better centre half.

He’ll only get crucified by the arl fellas who can’t be doing with this tippy tappy nonsense.

Yep he was ahead of his time. There weren't many defenders like him in the prem
