    Look!

    Do we trust La Porte(yes) and either Stones or Otamendi(no) to get through the season without letting goals in?

    Maguire alongside La Porte is a great pairing.

    And at 26 years old, his best years are yet to come.

    Bite the bullet, pay close to what Leicester want, and sign Maguire.

    He’s value isn’t going to go down.

    We might even with the CL, so that money will be recouped.

    Laporte deserves a better partner than Maguire and if we start him in the Champions League we ain't winning it.

    if McGuire is worth 80 million then I don't want to hear a quote for Sane's transfer that isn't less than 130 million.

    Why liverpool won it with Matip and Maguire is better than Matip.

    It won't be Laporte and one other. Too many games.All of the centre backs will play.

    I'm not disagreeing he shouldn't have left. I said as much. I am just disagreeing that he didn't give a "flying fuck " Certainly he came here for the money. However, when he stepped on the pitch he left everything he had out there. A lot of mercenary players aren't like that.

    All that being said, I suppose most players are "mercenaries" really. There are those like Foden, Noble, etc. that are local lads and grown up loving the team they play for and would play to the of their careers if given the chance. There's also players like Vinnie and Pablo they grow to love the club and adopt the city. But buy and large most players are at a club to play for money and to win medals and trophies. Some may wish to play a certain style or for a manger but when that changes they may well move on.

    I don't feel we disagree on Carlos shouldn't have left. Maybe I misread your statement and inferred you meant he didn't try when he played when you said he didn't give a "flying fuck." In any case, have a good weekend.

    Crikey!
    I wish I'd thought of that. Great point. He would arguably get into the cb position of the five teams below us.

    There’s a contrast in styles between the Premier League and Champions League. Most (not all) strikers in England are big, physical and play with their back to goal trying to hold the ball up and get on the end of crosses. Most (not all) strikers in the Champions League are small, quick and play on the shoulders of defenders to get in behind trying to exploit big, slow and clumsy defenders (e.g. Maguire).

    Maguire might help us in the Premier League but won’t in the Champions League, if anything his size and lack of agility will cause us more problems than it will fix. I would be very surprised if we did sign him but if we do I think it’ll be mainly for the domestic games to give the likes of Laporte a rest before big Champions League games.
