Difficult balancing act, to get the right age & quality. You could see the potential for disaster in Davinson Sanchez' performance for Spurs yesterday. He's a real potential talent but they are flying by the seat of their pants by actually playing him in such a crucial position. This is why VVD is such a no brainer to me. He is proven. If we signed him & he was a bit of a disappointment for the money, he would still be a Premier League level, fairly solid, 'disappointment for the money', & still a very useful player. If he reached his peak level, he would be worth more than we paid, in 12 months. And then, being secure with a group of cbs, the next one we signed after VVD, could afford to be a gamble on 'potential'.
