So it looks like our CB depth is Keane, Mina, Gbamin, Holgate. Sounds worrying to me after failing on Zouma but look around the league:
Watford: Kabasele, Cathcart, Dawson, Prodl
West Ham: Diop, Balbuena, Ogbonna, Reid
Wolves: Bolly, Vallejo, Coady, Bennett
Leicester: Soyuncu, Benkovic, Evans, Morgan
Honestly, I’d say Diop is the only one of that lot who I would consider signing, so the league isn’t exactly rich with CB talent if.
Even above us you’ve got Arsenal:
Luiz, Mustafi, Sokratis, Holding, Chambers
Even there the only player I’d have would be Sokratis
This isn’t to say that Brands is blameless for not buying a CB, more that we’re as good as the teams around us in that area.
