Interesting note from Greg O'Keefe yesterday about the issues with signing another CB this summer: "The issue was Silva insisting the new CB had to have Premier League experience. "

Oh dear, that’s a limiting criteria, particularly where value is concerned.

I do hope Mina doesn’t get a ban for the betting thing, because Sturridge did.

Didnt sturridge ACTUALLY partake in betting though?

I think Holgate is a good footballing  defender lacks physicality but will do fine against lots of teams especially with someone like Mina alongside

So why would Mina get banned? He was just in an advert its totally different to Sturridge's offence.

I agree that he shouldn’t, but it is related (however, nowhere near as bad, obviously)

And the FA wanted Sturridge’s ban to be six months long, so it wouldn’t be a stretch to imagine them wanting to ban Mina for a month.

You might be right there, and he does have some pace as well.

Certainly is! There really aren't many PL centre backs available to us I'd be happy with either...

I would of liked to replace zouma and got a back up or kept jags. Allowing us to loan Holgate abroad. I think there is potentially a good player there if he gets regular game time

Bit Ronald Koeman from silva that.

Ake aside, there’s not many centre halves the enthuse me in the prem, that would be attainable.

Interested to see how O’Connell does for Sheffield United though. He impressed me last season.

Forza overlapping centre halves.
Hey there mister can you tell me what happened to the seeds I've sown
Can you give me a reason sir as to why they've never grown

Yeah, there is that, too.

Apart from the obvious ones, who wouldn’t come to us, or be made available by their clubs.

Well, that regular game time is only one injury away from happening

Ive always believed that partnerships are more important. You need two decent players that suit your style of play and then they still need time playing together.

Prime example being Duffy and Dunk
Previous example being Pallister and Bruce
