    There must be someone who would want him off us.

    Why? We spend 70% of matches in possession and only 30% defending. Why should the latter be more important?

    Our shit defending has probably cost us the league this season

    But in that 30% lies the oppositions single shot on goal and, unless we've already scored in our 70%, the goal that puts us at 0-1!

    Not necessarily, Caballero plays most games now.

    Because, as I'm sure you've noticed, we have conceded 10 more goals than Chelsea and 11 more than Tottenham, the primary reason why we aren't in contention to win the league this season.

    Everyone loves to quote that number. His fee was tied up with Fernando's fee. Porto charged more for Mangala and less for Fernando because they could make more money that way based on the third party percentages. But keep quoting the number if it makes you feel good to slag our club.

    Of course he is a better defender than Stones. He is not a better ball playing CB than Stones.

    Bravo is no great shot stopper but some of the goals we have conceded this season have been beyond bizarre and the culprits are outfield defenders more so than the goalie and a tactical ploy that leaves us open to attackers who can outrun our defenders! Caballero or Bravo then become the Aunt Sally of the piece.

    Nope not Caballero. When he lets in the same goals that Bravo does, he is blameless.

    Otherwise spot on.
